Ever since I started the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast, and later the Celtic Christmas Podcast, I’ve sought the best indie Celtic music for Christmas. There are a lot more great Celtic Christmas songs. However, the trick is finding the Celtic Christmas music that is truly great.
That’s why I decided to create a Celtic Christmas album for the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast. I want to highlight some of the Celtic artists who are creating amazing Celtic Christmas music.
