New "Best of Irish & Celtic Music" CD Includes Anne Roos' Music

I am honored that one of my tracks is included in Marc Gunn’s new Best of the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast CD. This album is a compilation of some of the best independent Celtic music groups featured on the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast, a free, downloadable radio show hosted by Marc Gunn.

You’ll hear the track “Considine’s Grove”, from my A Light in the Forest CD, along with a wonderful mix of 16 other tracks: rousing drinking songs, traditional Irish ballads and jigs, and even a few songs that make a statement about Celtic culture.

If you’re new to the sounds of Celtic music, this is the CD for you. It introduces you to great music from world-class Celtic musicians. Marc Gunn, who compiled this CD, says:

“I wanted to showcase some of these amazing artists in ways that they might not be able to do on their own. This compilation is a lot like listening to the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast. It features an exciting mix of some of the coolest independent Celtic groups out there...All in all, this is an album that you don’t want to miss out on. You NEED this for your St. Patrick’s Day celebrations year ‘round. And you will enjoy it for many years to come.”

The Best of The Irish & Celtic Music Podcast compilation disc can be sampled on Marc Gunn’s website during Podcast #65. It is available for purchase on, where you can also go to purchase a download of the album. The Best of the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast CD is available from Mage Records, New Orleans, © 2008.
