Epic III: The Pirate Playlist

Theme: Intense Folk (Ship Battles, Irish, Scots & Celts)

I curate playlists on multiple music platforms including Spotify, YouTube Music, and Deezer. You can find direct links to these platforms below, as well as a link to regular YouTube.

After Epic Ⅰ & Epic Ⅱ, this is my dedicated page for my third epic playlist, Epic Ⅲ: the epic pirate playlist aka "Epic Pirate/Viking/Celtic".

This playlist is unique in that it features a full section dedicated to sea shanties and other lyrical music towards the end. The section is initiated with "Randy Dandy".

Below, you'll find details on the playlist genres, subgenres, and general information. To delve deeper into the specifics, head to the second section of the page where you can find a list of songs and their corresponding artists, organized by genre categories.
