Episode 6: Iowa (and Nebraska) Celtic Music

by Iowa Music Showcase

  • Streaming + Download



"Although Iowans may have more German than Irish ancestry, in music, the Irish and the rest of the Celts are way ahead!

So for your St Patrick's Day enjoyment, I am proud to present Celtic music as only Iowans (and a few Nebraskans) can do it!

And if you want to join the fun, you can take FREE bagpipe lessons from both The Omaha Scottish Pipes and Drums! - www.omahapipesanddrums.com And if you want to just watch and listen,

The Iowa Scottish Pipes and Drums keep a schedule of appearances! - www.iowascottish.com/appearances.html
