ULTRA-QUICK Giveaway #173 : 10 x itunes album Ultimate St Patricks Day Party Album 2012 - closed - winners @gumbie23 @wendymcd83 tinyelvis @jessws2011 susand1408 @daisyangel1 @hoops120 @Laura_Cookies @ali991 @Jo

Most traditional Irish folk music is designed for dancing and it sounds very much the same in the 21st century as it would have done two hundred years ago. But Irish music is no longer just about the fiddle and the drum. It has influenced generations of musicians who have used it to create new and exciting fusions as diverse as pop, rock and punk. 
It started in the 1960s with major Irish artists such as Van Morrison and Thin Lizzy breaking into the global mainstream market. Then Dana put Ireland on the pop music map when she won Eurovision in 1970. Since then the charts have been bombarded with Irish artists ranging from New Age fusion acts such as Enya and Clannad, pop groups like Westlife and The Corrs and rock stars including U2.

But it is the Traditional Irish Songs that will ring out around the world on St Patrick’s Day. The rousing strains of The Irish Rover, the ubiquitous Danny Boy lament and the stirring chorus of The Fields of Athenry will have them dancing in the streets into the wee small hours.
The new album Ultimate St Patricks Day Party Album 2012 celebrates the best of traditional Irish Music with a very modern twist , 45 songs to create the perfect party album for St Patricks Day. Find out how to get well and truly in the party spirit this Saturday at and other online music services now!
