Happy St. Patricks day to all those who are Irish, or want to be Irish today. Here is a list of the best of Irish music.
Best Irish Band
The most influential Irish band of all time definitely has to be U2. They have produced so many great songs over the years, and although they got slack from there free album recently, they are still legendary. Here is a link to my favorite song by U2.
Current Irish Musicians
Each of the artists below are listed in no particular order. These are current Irish artists, and each of them produce very chill, relaxing music.
His most famous song 9 Crimes, has incredible emotion and features fellow Irish musician Lisa Hannigan with the female vocals.
James Vincent McMorrow
Has very calming, mellow music. Great for work or studying.
His track ‘Take me to Church’ led Hozier to be a worldwide success. Other great tracks by Hozier include: ‘Someone New’, ‘Work Song’, and ‘From Eden’.
Best Irish Hip Hop Song
Although Macklemore is from Seattle, he sings about his Irish heritage in ‘Irish Celebration’. This song is originally from 2009, so it doesn’t get as much recognition as his newer material, but it definitely is an upbeat and fun Irish song with great instrumentals.
