Playing Irish music

Next

Music has always been an important ingredient of the Irish culture. Since the ancient days of the Celts, it has often been linked with the Day of St. Patrick. Because of the oral culture of the Celts, music has been passed from one generation to another, along with history and legend. Whenever St. Patrick’s Day arrives, people in Ireland play Irish songs to help them remember St. Patrick just like the way they commemorate other important events in their history. Music stirs their emotions and relive memories of the past, especially when songs are accompanied by instruments that have been there for centuries like fiddles, bagpipes, tin whistles and flute.
