Welcome to Irish Music Stories! This is the LIBSYN Landing page for Irish Music Stories.

Irish Music Stories is the show about traditional music.... and the much bigger stories behind it. IMS is about everything--through an Irish music lens.

Whether you already play the fiddle or you know nothing about trad music or dance, I hope you'll join me, Shannon Heaton, as I learn how a band of Boston tweens ended up at a big music competition in Sligo, and what it meant to their families... and as I dig into the darker, sweeter side of Irish humor... and as I explore what learning Irish songs together is really all about.

Meet thoughtful and incredibly charming people in pubs, kitchens, and backstages throughout the U.S., Ireland, and beyond, underscored with toe-tapping and heart-soaring melodies that seem familiar, even if you've never heard them before.

Was Robert Burns cooking up exciting new stuff when he wrote, “best laid schemes o’ mice an' men gang aft a-gley?” Well, Irish Music Stories is! After hitting a snag in the SECOND Tuesday publishing schedule, IMS will seize the opportunity to launch a short series of travel episodes. Stay tuned for a music tour of Japan and Scotland. You don't even have to pack a bag.

As always, episode playlist below.
