St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner, so celebrate Irish history by playing some of the timeless music.

Some of the songs included are Arthur McBride, The Bard of Armagh, Brennan on the Moor, Down by the Salley Gardens, The Foggy Dew, Jug of Punch, and The Rocky Road to Dublin. Band and orchestra players can have fun with the Irish Favorites collection featuring songs like Danny Boy, I Once Loved a Lass, The Minstrel Boy, My Wild Irish Rose, and many more!
