Trees are not only important to the Celts. They are important to all of humanity. They give us air to breathe. So this Arbor Day, I want to encourage you to plant a tree or take care of one tree in your town while you listen to the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast with tree-friendly Celtic music from Rattle the Knee, Anne Roos, Giant's Dance, Crepuscule, Slan, Michael Black, Dark Patrick, Nick Hennessey, Emerald Rose, Bag Haggis, Rathkeltair, Hair of the Dog, Bedlam. In fact, I'm pretty sure your tree will grow better with daily listens of Celtic music.
