We're Celebrating the "Virtues" of Alcohol this week on Come By The Hills

The new year begins on Sunday, and on Saturday night in many places around the world, people will be dancing, singing, partying, and of course, drinking. So, even though this week's Come by the Hills will be on when most of us are busy recovering from the morning after the night before, I thought it fit to devote an entire episode to Celtic songs about beer, whisky, punch, and any other alcoholic beverage that I can think of.

Please note that I'm not encouraging drunkenness or anything of the sort. I'm simply showcasing one of the main subjects of Celtic songs in honour of the coming of the new year. Again, I'm suspending the usual features for this show because there were just too many good songs I wanted to include. I hope you enjoy this rather morally dubious episode of Come by the Hills, and I urge you to please listen responsibly. :)

Join me this week and next year for three hours of the best in Celtic Music from around the world on Come by the Hills: the Celtic Music Show, on Sunday night at 8:00 PM Eastern, and with a replay on Friday morning at 4:00 AM Eastern, 9:00 AM in the UK and Ireland.
