It's going to be another strange St. Patrick's Day this year, but it doesn't have to be completely devoid of craic.

In fact, while the country had just shut down this time last year – leaving little or no online entertainment or live music available to us on our national holiday – this year we're well-versed in livestreams and the like.

With that in mind, we've put together a list of music events that you can stream from the comfort of your home home this Paddy's Day....

[Note: Most of these are free, but some are ticketed. You'll find out more by clicking each link.]
