The following songs are a few of the favourites that I have accumulated over the years which are guaranteed to get your kids wanting to jig. Although dancing to Celtic songs is fun all year round it is particularly appropriate for St Patrick’s Day! So here are some Celtic Songs that are an absolute must have for any St Patrick’s Day party playlist.
Where possible i’ve added in links to Amazon downloads for each of the tracks – but i’ve also got YouTube videos too so they can be played straight from the post.
St Patrick’s Day Party Playlist: perfect Celtic Songs to get kids moving
5. Art Mooney: I’m Looking Over a 4 Leaf Clover.
The video below shows a beginners Ceilidh dance, which still looks pretty complex to me! But gives an idea of the sort of moves that you can do. Most children would prefer just improvising with jigging and hopping in time to the music, but you can also try forming two lines facing each other or skipping in circles.
