I need your help... Looking for your favorite recordings or videos of Irish tunes/songs on ukulele for my podcast www.thegigcast.com this week. All credit will be given. Email your suggestions to me at gigcast@nightgig.com or pm me.

To be more specific, I'm looking for Irish songs recorded by ukukele players that are available for download on the web, Youtube videos, mp3s etc...

Thanks!

Again, all great songs but I'm looking for Irish songs recorded by ukukele players that are available for download on the web, Youtube videos, mp3s etc that I can then use on my Podcast :)

Instead of doing song searches on YouTube, just search "Irish Ukulele"

I'll be doing that as well, BUT.. I'm just seeing if there are any that you folks here know of.

And if there are any members that have recorded some themselvs.

Just searching youtube would mean I'd miss a lot of good stuff. Ya know?

i just invented a youtube channel! i thought you wanted versions of our own favorite irish tunes, then i saw those links from above and was like "holy shit! these guys rock!" but i'd already uploaded some vids, which pale in comparison.

I started getting a few standards down and for some reason it made me want a drink. Then I've just been repeating that and am now unable to make a C chord.
Thanks for the inspiration JT.
I'm crying now thinking of all the wakes I've been to where Danny boy was playing.
Just drinking Mountain Dew but to much sugar and caffeine can mess you up. Thats another one Rare old Mountain Dew.
