One of the most-famous Irish songs is called "Whiskey in the Jar". It's about a highwayman who is betrayed by his lover. It's been covered by everyone from The Dubliners to Celtic Thunder, The Pogues to Metallica, Brobdingnagian Bards to me.

I first recorded it with the Brobdingnagian Bards on our album A Faire to Remember. But this version was released on my latest Irish album Not Every Day Is St. Patrick's Day. The album features 20 song that perfect for St. Patrick's Day or any day of the year.

You can own this song and the album it's on for as little as $1. From now until March 17, 2017, you can join the Gunn Runners Club on Patreon. Make a pledge of any amount: $1, $5, $25, $95, $897.23, and I will send you an autographed copy of my St Patrick's Day CD for free.

Plus, you'll also get all over the amazing content that is a regular part of the Gunn Runners Club, including free MP3s, exclusive album downloads, bonus podcasts, and lots more.
