"Sliding in the Snow" by Patrick Keith
from Sliding in the Snow
Patrick Keith Ahern’s music ranges from rock to rock ballads and Christmas music to singer/songwriter easy listening. He was influenced by all styles of music from U2 to the Pogues. His dad, a musician himself, also had a huge influence in his musical style as his dad was in bands such as The Arrivals and The Dukes of Jazz.
"Silent Night" by Martyn
With an extensive repertoire derived from the rich folk traditions of Ireland, England and Scotland along with his own original songs, Martyn Wylde continues the legacy of the Bards of old. Accompanying himself on guitar, bouzouki and mandolin, Martyn's pure tenor voice and three octave range combine with his multi-instrumental talent to form a truly unique folk instrument, bringing new life to material which is sometimes hundreds of years old.
"We Wish You a Merry Christmas/It Came Upon a Midnight Clear" by
from Hellbound Sleigh
Founded in Houston in 1994, The Rogues created a new genre of Celtic music with exceptionally well-played pipes and driving percussion. The band's sound ranges from traditional pipes and drums to innovative textures incorporating whistles, keyboard and guitar, as well as many percussion instruments. Always present in The Rogues' music is that spirit that endears them to their audience. From technical precision to soaring melodies, a Rogues album and performance will move you to tears and get you dancing immediately afterwards.
"Hark the Herald Angels Sing" by Keith and Kristy Getty
from Joy - An Irish Christmas
Keith and Kristyn bring a high energy mix of American bluegrass and Irish folk music styles. The band is made up of some of Nashville's most sought after session players.
"The Scottish King of Christmas" by Marc Gunn
from Celtic Christmas Songs
Marc Gunn is a rhythm and folk musician inspired by Celtic culture, science fiction, fantasy, and cats. He breathes new life into the autoharp, which continues to surprise musical veterans and fans a like for it’s unique sound and spirited energy. It’s like a satirical jam session between The Clancy Brothers and Weird Al Yankovic. It’s Celtic music, the traditional and the twisted.
"We're All Home for Christmas" by The Malarkeys
from Bloody Brilliant
Contemporary Canadian Celtic rock popsters, noted for their live performance Celtic mash-ups that throw traditional Irish pub songs into unlikely medleys with more modern rock songs.
"Christmas Bells" by Angus

Just as watery mist remakes the world and whisky remakes the man, Angus Mohr revitalizes the brogue of traditional Celtic music with an American blues accent and rejuvenates rock ’n roll’s broad spectrum with bagpipe and pennywhistles.
