I started a new Spotify playlist a couple weeks ago. When you vote in the Celtic Top 20, your vote will not only help determine who is in next year's Best Celtic Music episode of 2018, but you'll also be able to add songs from each show to that playlist. I'm updating it almost every week. This is another way to have fun with me on Spotify.
