There has been a significant increase in the amount of Christmas music released this year by Irish artists such as Kodaline, The Academic, Lyra and Hudson Taylor.

Several artists and acts, including Jess Leen, Callistan & Evelyn Finnerty, and Irish Women in Harmony, have released Christmas songs in aid of various charities – ALONE, MASI, and ISPCC respectively – which can be donated to by visiting the artists’ Spotify pages.

Trust the arts to provide some much needed Christmas cheer to round this year out.

Check out our Christmas playlist below that also features: Stephanie Rainey, Ross Breen, Saarloss, Keywest, Paddy Dennehy, Zali, CMAT and Junior Brother and many, many more.
