St. Patrick’s Day is just days away. In the past, our most popular St. Patrick’s Day CD was Songs of Ireland. The year after Songs of Ireland came out, The Secret World of Celtic Rock was the hit CD for St Paddy’s Day. Last year, Irish Drinking Songs for Cat Lovers was the more popular St. Patrick’s Day CD. But this year, Mage Records has four new CDs that all fans of St. Patrick’s Day will be dying to own:

Our Celtic wedding CD, A Celtic Renaissance Wedding, is topping the charts at the Celtic MP3s Music Magazine. The album charted #2 as the most-popular Celtic CD sold in February.
I made a lot of updates to the website today. I finally added a page for the new Irish music compilation CD, Victims of Irish Music. I also added a buy link The Holy Grail of Irish Drinking Songs including links to the MP3 Downloads. Then I updated the New Releases and Compilation CDs pages.
Finally getting close to finishing this compilation CD. I’ve been planning this compilation for a while. It’s an album of mostly all-instrumental Irish music that I am compiling. I finally finished the track listing. The album sounds great. Here’s what I have on it:
- “Cooley’s Set (Reels: Cooley’s Reel,/Sporting Paddy/Toss The Feathers)” by Wild Clover Band from Behind the Blarney
- “Sleeping Under The Tables Set” by Kennedy’s Kitchen from A Pocketful of Lint
- “Lannigan’s Ball/Rambling Pitchfork/Tar Road Sligo” by Cady Finlayson from Harp and Shamrock
- “Staten Island Hornpipe/Morpeth Rant” by The Jolly Rogues from Captain Billy’s Privateers
- “The Gneeveguilla Reel/Drag her Round the Road/The Golden Keyboard” by Arabesque from Glen Road to Cordoba
- “The Boys from Blue Hill/Cherish the Ladies” by Bow Triplets from One Spot On Earth
- “Princess Royale” by Thomas “Doc” Grauzer from Infernal Harp Racket
- “Chicago Trippin up the Stairs by Boston Blackthorne from Better Late Than Ever
- “Rocky Road to Brenham” by Celtic Stone from Digital Traditions
- “Geordie Lad” by Vicki Swan & Jonny Dyer from Thumb Twiddling
- “Old Grey Cat” by Marc Gunn & The Dubliners’ Tabby Cats from Irish Drinking Songs for Cat Lovers
- “Congress Reel” by Poitin from Live!
- “The Road to Lisdonvarna/Morrison’s Jig” by Vince Conaway from Distractions from the Muse
- “Polkas and Slides” by The Tea Merchants from The Tea Merchants
- “Banks of Spey/High Road to Linton” by Highland Fling from Highland Fling
- “Campbell’s Farewell to Red Gap/Newcastle” by Bedlam Bards from Furious Fancies
- “The Skylark/Humours of Tulla/Lucy Campbell’s” by Culann’s Hounds from Year of the Dog
It sounds fantastic!
Incidentally, the title of the album came from a phrase I saw on a book I borrowed from Doc Grauzer about Irish music. As I recall, it mentioned how the British attempted to stomp out traditional music in Ireland, but nothing could stop it. The name sounded too cool to not use for something.
