My wife and I listen to your podcast all the time, whether it’s driving to visit family, or just to chill in the living room. I’ve taken up home brewing, specifically mead, and naturally listen while working on it. Unfortunately, shipping alcohol is a nightmare, but if you can get to North Texas, I promise to leave you a bottle on our porch (because distancing, sorry). Thanks for all your hard work."    W. Ed Harris emailed: "Hey Marc! I just signed up to become a Podcast Patron. I think it’s wonderful what you are doing and I am going to make every effort to be more engaged/supportive! I am a Celtic multi-instrumentalist and do everything myself throughout the recording/release process. I will be releasing my 8th album within the next few weeks and I have 100+ YouTube videos out. I believe you may have featured me in the past in that we follow on FB Page as well. I also had a tune aired on Celtic Roots Podcast very recently and wanted to take this opportunity in sending you the video link on the tune as well. Again, Thanks so much for all you do and I look forward in getting more immersed in this wonderful culture (my heritage as well)! Sláinte my friend!" Charlie Hunt emailed a photo: "Hi Marc, I absolutely love the show and am so proud to be a Patreon. Every week, your show brings me and my very good dog Rhody so much joy and contentment. Just look how relaxed he is! Your show is one of the best parts of our week, and I’m so thankful we have someone carrying on these positive, welcoming and inclusive Celtic traditions. PS - as much Runa as possible, please! Best, Charlie (and Rhody)" Eric emailed some videos from his home: "Hi Marc. From time to time I listen to your podcast, which i think is really awesome - bringing the finest Irish and Celtic music to us and the world. A few episodes ago you asked about a possible location to go for. For quite some time I thought the region I live in could be a place you would like, but I always threw this thought away - not this time. It is a very historical and very interesting place, but not as famous as Ireland or Scotland. Although the country looks a little similar and the music is also not far off. We even have our own dialect "Plattdeutsch" which is recognized as its own language. I'm sure, now you are excited. I live in the northern part of Germany ca. 4km from the danish border, where I travel each day to work. In the past, this region often changed between Germany and Denmark. Originally it is the home of the Vikings with its trading center Haithabu (Hedeby in English), located at the end of the "Schlei", which is a fjord. Haithabu is still a location, but nowadays it is a museum including a historical village and it belongs to the city of Schleswig. Here, you can make yourself a picture of my home region, the Schlei: Video, Hedeby, World Heritage page. There are some clubs in this region that keep the old way of living alive like in the village of Haithabu or in Wallsbüll (Valsbøl in danish) where each year the battle of Wallsbüll is shown. There are some bands that play music in our dialect, but they are hard to find e.g. on YouTube. The local radio station may help to find them. Three times a week, in the evening this radio station broadcasts in our local dialect including such bands. Hope you find my notes interesting. If you have questions, just let me know. Slainte and have a great weekend!"

I was there for Christmas and New Year visiting my brother and we went to Liverpool, Belfast, Glasgow and Inverness. You might say this was my own Celtic Invasion :-). We were in a Hootananny at Inverness for dinner when the musicians began to arrive, and then we couldn't leave until it closed. There I also upped my English to "Drunken Glaswegian" Level :-D (English is not my mother language) Feel free to use any of the videos; it's all public. The musicians names are in the video descriptions. And if you could give me a hand with the tune titles, I would be much appreciated. Slàinte" Deanna Garrison emailed: "Hi! My sister and I love listening to the podcast. We're both American and while I'm still here, she's over in Norway working on her PhD. She likes to listen to the podcast while working or studying. I've been listening to the show when I'm at work. Right now I'm working on inventory data entry (transferring products from the store to the website and logging all that) I listen to at least one episode whenever I'm at work and it always makes my day better.

Adrian Parkes from Dublin Ireland here. I just wanted ot say hi and let you know I've recently released a Celtic themed Meditation app with a selection of Celtic radio stations. I'd love to encourage the spread of Celtic music and wonder if you'd be interested in networking and seeing how we can help each other? Kind Regards, Adrian.  https://celticwhispers.ie/" Rita Delega messaged: "I Love the Celtic Women. The best!" Marshall Blosser emailed: "Hello from Newfoundland. Hey Marc, So we landing here in Newfoundland a little two months ago.  Still waiting on my work visa so I have the dosh to go visit all the Irish pubs in town.  There is such a strong Irish influence here that there is still an Irish brogue here. Have you ever thought of doing an Celtic Invasion Vacation to the parts of Canada that the the Celts immigrated to?  The traditions and sounds that they brought over have been kept alive (if slightly modified) here in St John's, Newfoundland.  I think it would make for a great tour. I'm still hoping to create own (Marc Gunn inspired) Irish music podcast here to help promote the incredible music from the Rock.  I've been taking note on how you do you podcast and looking into the nuts and bolts of crafting my own. I will steer bands your way too, as you would have an even wider audience to share the music with. Anyway, I hope all goes well with you. " Peter Wood emailed photos: "Marc, this letter has been a long time coming because the Irish and Celtic Music Podcast has been a fixture of my life for almost a third of it. Back in 2011 I came to Austin, Texas for an internship to cap off my time in college, and I went looking for podcasts to fill my time walking to the bus stop, waiting for the bus, and riding to and from my internship. I had been listening to The Signal podcast at the time, and their appreciation of your Firefly songs led me to discover your podcast. The highlight of that summer was a July Fourth afternoon walking the trail down Lady Bird Lake while listening to the latest Irish and Celtic Music Podcast. I returned home to Indiana, but I continued listening to your podcast while commuting to work and especially while taking my autistic brother on laundromat trips. I moved back to Austin and I continued to play the podcast. For a while, part of my next job involved checking the new stock into inventory in the morning, while my coworkers worked around me, and the podcast was a natural fit for something to listen to with open speaker as I worked. Two years ago I met Jessica, and the podcast quickly became something we could listen to while in the car on our outings. She's from El Salvador and has a passion for music, but she's still not very comfortable with English, so it's something we can enjoy together. I think we'd both appreciate an episode featuring Spanish- and Galician-language songs. I'm finally finishing this email I started over a month ago because I wanted to add that two days ago as I'm writing now, Jessica and I listened to the podcast as we drove across town to the courthouse to get married, and then to the party room for the reception. I'm attaching a few photos of the day. For a decade, your show has been the soundtrack of my life, and now our life together. Sláinte, saludos, and see y'all from Austin, Texas."

We are organizing the nursery during this pandemic... what a time to have a kid! We’re listening to the podcast while prepping the nest! Our sweet dog Luna is just hanging out with us and enjoying the music too!"     Brett Thomasson emailed on Facebook: "What’s the best way to check out samples of the new CD’s in the post now that CDBaby has closed its online store?" Theron Statler messaged on Facebook: "Hello Marc, I ran across this actually on a Scythian comment. Lol....I would like to know if you play other folk music that has some Celtic influences but not necessarily a straight forward Celtic band? The band/music I have is Scarecrow Jack out of the Ohio Valley area. I can send a little video I put together of a song written inspired by Bar Harbor, ME and another I wrote a few years ago about one day a year Irish..lol If not what you are interested in I understand but maybe you would know someone else that could give us some airplay? All the best."

Live stream concerts seem the way of the world right now. But the biggest challenge is finding out who’s doing them. I haven’t seen a resource for Celtic concerts. I am trying to make one available. I set up a Google Calendar. Celtic artists can add their own events to the calendar to share their live streaming concerts. View the calendar here. I created a blog about how to support Celtic artists in the time of COVID-19. It’s actually not a bit different from how to support artists at any time. Read it here. Get the free Irish & Celtic Music Podcast app on iTunes and on Amazon. You can enjoy more great music and stories from Marc Gunn through the Pub Songs Podcast. A bunch of Celtic musicians joined Patreon since the pandemic started. It’s a great site for artists as well for podcasts. But how do you find them? I published a blog a couple weeks ago with links to all of the Celtic patreons pages I could find. You’ll find a link in the shownotes. If there’s an artist missing, please let me know.

I would like to ask why i can't find the podcast on spotify. will you come to spotify?" Bryan Lewis emailed: "I have been listening through your podcast episodes every day while I work. Best collection of irish music out there! But all of a sudden, Spotify no longer has your podcast!! When I click the "Listen on Spotify" buttons on your site and facebook page a spotify page comes up with [object] [object] and doesn't open spotify. Am I doing something wrong? has it been removed? I found you in Apple podcasts but there are no episodes after 10/2019. So worried I'm not going to get to listen to the last 6 months! Thanks!" I told Bryan about our free iPhone and Android app. "Ooooh! An App! Fantastic. Sorry about the spotify thing. ??  THANK YOU!!! Just finished downloading it. brilliant. I like having a dedicated app for you even better. Thanks for the great work and giving me a soundtrack for my life. ??" Craig Backus emailed: "Marc, I've been wondering about listening to and supporting my favorite artists.... I have a pretty wide taste in music, and I often buy albums (albeit from Apple) but the whole album.... Since I'm a prime member, I keep getting ads from Amazon Music that their app includes access to millions of songs for $10 a month!  I'm sure artists see some benefit from it, but I don't know.  For example, I saw that Lucinda Williams has a new album out.  I've never actually bought any of her music, but have heard her many times on Tom Petty radio on SiriusXM.  I went to her website to get a feel for how she sells music, and she's basically included links to every music streaming and download site. I thought that artists might make more from direct sales, but it doesn't seem like they are set up for that.  Perhaps it's more cost-prohibitive to have someone process orders than to just wait for streaming royalties and to go out on tour? I don't know......  I'd be interested in knowing what you think....... PS I really loved the discovery of "Jiggy" last week.  The combination of Celtic music with world beats is different and pretty cool.  I bet it will be coming to a scifi show soon!  Perhaps a new bar beyond the ring in the Expanse?"

I do spend money to advertise the show on Facebook. We get a lot of new listeners because your generosity helps pay for that. That’s one of the big reasons I was so happy to hit this milestone. Because we hit it, I told patrons that I would give them a two-hour instrumental Celtic music special. That’s what we are doing today. Of course, it actually wasn’t ONE two-hour special. I gave you another one a couple weeks ago. So your generosity funded FOUR bonus hours of Celtic music. So let me start by saying thanks. And I’ll stop there too.

Earth Day is an annual event celebrated around the world on April 22 to demonstrate support for environmental protection. Arbor Day is on April 24. Yet Coronavirus has taken over the international discussion. That makes it tough to talk about anything else in the short-term. But climate change is the most-important long-term issue facing our planet. So I want to draw a little bit of attention to just how important it is that we are proper stewards of the planet. That means limiting dangerous carbon emissions and limiting other things that pollute We Celts have long had a love of the land. This is one of the most-important issues for Celts, If we don’t protect our planet, then we will destroy it. This episode is dedicated to the planet Earth. CELTIC PODCAST NEWS The Earth Day website has “11 Actions for the Planet During a Pandemic.” That seems like a super appropriate article right now. You can read the article on the Earth Day website. April 24 is also Arbor Day. I love the idea of planting trees to combat pollution. If you join the Arbor Day Foundation, they will send you ten trees. Or they will plant ten trees for you. Memberships are as little as $10 for six months. Not too bad a deal. So we’re sending trees to the rainforest this month. Find out more at arborday.org. If you want another way to support the planet.

Pamela Hatley emailed: "Hey Mark, I recently discovered your podcast and have subscribed and contributed through Patreon. Love the music and everything you bring with it. I used to listen to multiple political podcasts every day. That did not do much for my mental and emotional well-being. Now I am listening to past and current episodes of Irish and Celtic Music podcast, and haven’t listened to a political podcast in weeks… Thank you for saving me from political podcasts! Also...I subscribed to Celtic Music magazine but never received the zip files with the 34 Celtic music mp3s. Could you please email that to me again? And also…I recently joined the Celtic Conundrum band as a banjoist. I was delighted to hear one of the band’s songs on a recent Irish and Celtic Music podcast. Thanks so much for sharing our music. Best to you and thanks for all you do!” Eric Guarin emailed: "Hi Marc, I was listening to episode 436 where you said someone sent a hate-filled email blasting you for increasing diversity and invoking Jesus' name. Fie on them, I say! And funny those people like to invoke Jesus, who accepted a tax collector as disciple and had a prostitute washing his feet (roll eyes). If I could wave a magic wand I would banish them to be forced to live (separated!) in the slums of Nairobi, Rio, Mumbai, etc. I'm half Hispanic and the other half stretches back through the Mayflower and Jamestown to Scotland and to France via William the Conqueror (so as white as it gets I guess). My first babysitters were a middle aged black couple, and a couple of gay fellows next door. So, I pretty much detest ANY form of discrimination, it's just an excuse for people to try and feel superior to others. Anyway that whole thing incensed me so much it spurred me to sponsor you and send a link to my mom to listen. Keep up the good work, and since I now teach here's hoping for a post-coronavirus Celtic Invasion to Ireland (or maybe Scotland but I've never been to Ireland) summer 2021 or Spring Break; if the stars align I could bring my getting-elderly mom. Cheers!"

I am a Celtic musician and podcaster. This show is dedicated to the indie Celtic musicians. Please support these artists. Share the show with your friends. And find more episodes at celticmusicpodcast.com. You can also support this podcast on Patreon. I originally planned to take this week off. I wanted to get ahead on upcoming shows. The problem is that I am on lockdown due to the COVID-19 virus. Many of you are too. Yet, I had a few emails from Patons of the Podcast especially as well as regular listeners saying, “thank you for bringing some Celtic music joy to a world turned upside down”. I know we have over 450 episodes for you to enjoy while you’re stuck at home. Nevertheless I decided to release this bonus episode of the podcast. And it’s not just a bonus episode. This is another extra-long episode. I compiled it rather quickly. But I hope you enjoy this offering. I’m not gonna talk too much. So thanks to my generous patrons and to each and every one of you. Please wash your hands, stay at home if you can, and be safe.  So let’s get rolling... CELTIC PODCAST NEWS The past month was pretty devastating for Celtic musicians. Our biggest month of the year was effectively canned. We have no idea when we will be able to perform in front of live audiences again. And even when we are able, will audiences come out? Some of us are better off than others. That’s because we have Patreon pages for our music. Just like for the podcast, fans can support some Celtic bands by making a monthly pledge to their music. Sometimes you get some digital goodies for your generosity too. There are about 20 Celtic musicians and bands with Patreon pages. I compiled a list of Celtic musicians on Patreon. Follow the link for details. THANK YOU PATRONS OF THE PODCAST! Because of Your kind and generous support, this show comes out every week. Your generosity funds the creation, promotion, and production of the show. It allows us to attract new listeners and to help our community grow. It also pays for my time in producing the show. As a patron, you get to hear episodes before regular listeners. When we hit a milestone, you get an extra-long episode. You can pledge a dollar or more per episode and cap how much you want to spend each month over on Patreon. I want to send an extra-special thanks to our Celtic Legends. These generous folks pledge $25 or more per month so that you can get a new show every week.

We get to know the region through its culture, history, and legends. You can join us with an auditory and visual adventure through podcasts and videos.

You can send a written comment along with a picture of what you're doing while listening. Email a voicemail message to celticpodcast@gmail.com The band Kinnfolk posted this little online. I asked if I could share it. “Call me cynical, but I've always assumed that the world is moving away from live, local music. Our phones are too distracting; instead of looking out into the world around us, our heads are bowed over our screens, or we're busy trying to snap the perfect photo to be enjoyed later on Instagram. Or even when we are alert and engaged...it's so easy to pull up YouTube and summon a musical performance from any place in the world, any moment in time, any musician we choose. How can a local musician even matter, in a world like this? That's what I thought. Over the past two years, this community has shown me time and time again that local music is not only relevant, but is a profound means of connecting with other human beings. I'm reminded of this every time we see repeat faces in the audience. Every time someone dances. Every time a busy bar goes still. Every time I see tears after a performance of "Danny Boy" or "Kilkelly, Ireland." Every time a child wanders to the stage and watches, fascinated, as we play. I'm reminded that music is not only something we do, but something we give. And so, as always, thank you all. For listening to our music, attending our shows, chatting with us online. Performance is a circle, and our music is meaningful because of these little moments of connection with you. <3” I agree wholeheartedly. I find it amazing and heartening to see the outpouring of support the podcast has received over the past couple weeks. And my fans have been absolutely beyond amazingly generous. This is a stressful time for all. So I’m grateful to have your support. But I want to remind you to support bands like Kinnfolk and others in this podcast. We love creating and your kindness and generosity are what allow us to keep creating new music. So thank you all.

In fact, it’s almost morbidly comical that one of the biggest challenges musicians have faced over the past few years is the declining sales of our primary revenue stream, CDs. More and more people are streaming music. That’s made touring all the more important. And now we have COVID-19. All of my big gigs through May are canceled. It’s the same with most musicians. There has never been a better time to ask for your help. Please support the musicians you enjoy. If you’re able to buy digital downloads, a CD, or merch or tip the artist online. Do so. If you’re not, we totally understand. So do something to promote the artist. Share their CD or Spotify page. Do something to spread the word. Share your love of them online and in your Facebook groups or other social groups. I confess I’ve never been more thankful that I have this podcast to help support my family. So I can only imagine how other Celtic musicians are faring. Please support them as you’re able.

You can send a written comment along with a picture of what you're doing while listening. Email a voicemail message to celticpodcast@gmail.com Domenico Rossi emailed a photo from Italy: "Hi Marc! A HUGE thanks for your podcasts: it's always exciting waiting each Thursday! This week (just as the last and, probably, also the next one) I'm working from home, due to COVID19 emergency. Here in Italy very strict rules force us to stay home and go out only for severe necessities. Well, it's been a bit difficult to get used to but... hey! We are safe, alive, and we have our favourite music (Celtic one of course!) and your company! Even in this difficult times I thank the Lord and wait for better times... thanks to you, also, for your weekly gift. Attached you can find a pic of me working at my "new desk"... stay safe my friend!" Eric Mailler responded to a Celtic Music Magazine email: "Hi Marc, I downloaded the songs without any issues. Also wanted to say thank you for everything you do. I love listening to songs I’d never hear otherwise and learning more about Celtic culture through the song lyrics and letters your read. You asked who some of our favorite Celtic bands are. As far as well known bands go, the Young Dubliners and Gaelic Storm are up there for me. But, for local bands, the Rogue Diplomats are awesome. I usually try to catch them in Bethlehem, PA around St. Patrick’s Day. Anyway, thanks again, and Sláinte!" Steven Rausch emailed a photo: "Listening to the Irish and Celtic Music Podcast, made this traditional Guinness beef stew on St Patrick’s Day (and your birthday).  Slainte." Sean Morris emailed: "Hi, loving the podcast! You mentioned that listeners should submit music from female musicians/singers for future consideration. I'd like to draw your attention to banjoist Angela Usher from Manchester, England. Angela is a contemporary of musicians such as Mike McGoldrick, the Farrell's, Dezi Donnelly, Angelina Carberry, John Joe and Grace Kelly, etc who grew up learning and playing together in the 80's/90's in Manchester. She released her first album 'The Gort Mile' last year which has some lovely tunes and songs (some her own pieces). It's a measure of the regard she is held in that she had musicians such as Mike McGoldrick, Colin Farrell and John Carty collaborating with her on the Album. (I think Mike McGoldrick may have produced it) Angela is also involved with a cross community (Irish and Jewish) music project 'Amid the murk over the Irk' as a performer/composer/arranger. This is quite an interesting project which has brought gems such as this version of The Butterfly to us Angela also host several sessions in Manchester. Actually worth mentioning Grace Kelly here as well, former All Ireland whistle champion, sister of bodhran player Jon Joe Kelly who hosts another four sessions in Manchester. We have a strong female contingent of musicians here and it's not unknown for men to be in the minority at sessions here. Anyway, hope you enjoy Angela's album. Keep up the good work with the podcast."

I have strong Irish roots with my O'Reilly side of the family and this podcast is great for discovering artists and songs I haven't heard before." Scott Tayler posted: "This reminds me of my Irish great fourth times grandfather." Old Dude posted: "Longtime listener now exploring other podcasts with emphasis on Celtic music rather than modern social justice causes. Unfortunately this podcast is no longer a relaxing stroll along the high road or the low road to the shores of Loch Lomond. 3 Star rating reflects excellent music and too much SJW discussion." Daniel Joseph reviewed: "You know a good heart when you hear one. Great music through each week. What else do you want?!" Linda Pavlich emailed: "Hello!  I just pledged to your podcast. I have been wanting to become a “patron” of the podcast since I first came across it two years ago, and I finally did it! I am of Irish heritage on both sides of my family, but we never really talked about it when I was growing up.  I am of the generation  that was supposed to be a “melting pot.”  My grandparents actually changed their names, to keep their ethnicity hidden.  Still - I have always loved Irish music - either makes you want to dance, or cry - so full of emotion.  So - when my husband and I joined our local Recreation Center and started working out regularly, my son told me I should look for interesting podcasts to make the exercising easier.  When I started searching for podcasts, yours came up - I tried it, and I loved it!  Yay! My husband listens to talkie podcasts, and my son is always giving me suggestions (Stuff You Should Know), but I just love your musical offerings.  I have purchased some of the music, and listen to it on a playlist, but I really like the variety of the podcast.  It sometimes even “makes my day.”  Thank you so much for your upbeat presentation.  It is especially important now - in the sometimes hateful political climate in our country these days, to remember that we all come from somewhere else, and our various perspectives and cultures can enrich our lives, if we treat each other with respect and joy.  I think you do that.  Thank you so much for the pure pleasure your podcast brings."

The Irish & Celtic Music Podcast is a for-profit endeavor that is funded by you. I cannot pay royalties to artists because of the nature of podcast. It’s cost-prohibitive. You can read about that on my website. So I found a different way to give back. A portion of the money raised from compilation CD sales and from your Patreon donations is donated to Celtic Non-Profits. We already donated money to the Savannah Irish Festival to help some of the artists featured on this podcast. We are also sponsoring the Texas Scottish Festival in May. And now in September, we’re also sponsoring Middle Tennessee Highland Games & Celtic Festival. We have donated over $35,000 to Celtic Non-Profits. But I want to stress, that’s not me. That’s all of us. Everyone who supports this podcast is supporting Celtic culture through music. These festivals bring our musical heritage alive. So thank you for being a part of that. CELTIC PODCAST NEWS While you’re there, I want to ask you to post a review on Apple Podcasts. Right now, we are 37 reviews away from 1000. That’s incredible to think about especially considering I haven’t asked anyone to post a review in a long time. If you listen to podcasts, I want to recommend a couple that I enjoy and are Celtic in nature. Irish Music Stories is put out by Irish musician Shannon Heaton. She looks at the bigger stories behind traditional Irish music. It’s extremely well-produced and well worth subscribing Erin’s Isle is a short travel podcast. Erin brings you the delightful parts of Ireland in intriguing stories that’ll make you want to learn more. Her show is even syndicated on Aer Lingus and British Airways. It’s that good. And a lot of fun! If you want more St Patrick’s Day music, check out the St Patrick’s Day podcast. It’s a 7-part series I released years ago. It’s music with minimal chatting. It’s perfect for playing in the background of your own Paddy’s Day party. I’d be negligent if I didn’t tell you about my own personal podcast. The Pub Songs Podcast is the virtual public house for Celtic Geek culture. I put together several St Patrick’s Day episodes including the latest which is a Sci Fi St Patrick’s Day. Because, well, I’m a geek. You can find more podcasts by me and others in my Mage Podcast Network or when you subscribe to the Celtic Music Magazine. Because I tell you what’s new in the Celtic podcast world in every issue. And it’s still free! TRAVEL WITH CELTIC INVASION VACATIONS Every year, I take a small group of Celtic music fans on the relaxing adventure of a lifetime. We don't see everything. Instead, we stay in one area. We get to know the region through its culture, history, and legends. You can join us with an auditory and visual adventure through podcasts and videos. Learn more about the invasion at http://celticinvasion.com/ LEARN IRISH DANCE Irish music, dance, and culture have global appeal, but not everyone has the opportunity to access lessons in their neighborhood. Online Irish Dance offers courses for people who want to learn the basics of Irish dance for fun—no matter where they are in the world! The course called Irish Dance Basics for Ceili Dancing is specifically designed to teach students the basic movements required in ceili, or group, dancing. The moves are taught with music of varying speeds, and modules are included that introduce stretches and strengthening exercises to keep students’ bodies safe while they practice. Sign up today at online-Irish-dance.teachable.com and use the code SPD2020 for 25% off any course in the school through March 31, 2020. I should point out. They are not a sponsor of the podcast. And I have no affiliation. They asked if I’d share. It sounded like something I thought you might be interested in. FREE MUSIC How would you like a free album of Celtic music? Every year, I compile the 17 Free Celtic MP3s for St Patrick’s Day. In fact, if you listened to and enjoyed show #250, then you can now download every single one of those songs for free. Follow the link in the shownotes. There are NO STRINGS ATTACHED. The download page is on our Patreon. It’s open to the public. So you can just click and download the free MP3s. You don’t need to sign up for a single thing. Now if you want MORE FREE MP3s, you can also subscribe to the Celtic Music Magazine. Every week, you will get a few cool bits of Celtic music news. It's a quick and easy way to plug yourself into more great Celtic culture. Plus, you'll get 34 Celtic MP3s for Free, just for signing up today. And if that’s not enough… I want you to have a Free CD of mine. It’s an album of Irish songs called Happy Songs of Death. I actually featured it on episode #83 of the podcast. But you can have the physical CD. I will swallow the cost of the disc. You just have to pay for the shipping. Follow the link in the shownotes. I don’t know how long this offer will last. So get it soon! #celticmusic #irishmusic #celticpodcast I WANT YOUR FEEDBACK What are you doing today while listening to the podcast?

The upbeat music is keeping me going as I tackle this rather daunting task.  No pics - nobody should see the mess I have!" Helen Withers emailed: "Hi from Helen Withers in Falcon, Colorado. We attended the Larkspur, Colorado Renaissance Festival in the last two years. We have repeatedly sat in the audience to see, sing with(from the audience) and enjoy a musical trio called "Music the Gathering Band" They have at least one CD, & recently finished at the Brevard RenFaire.

We saw them live in Estes Park, Colorado & really enjoyed their music too. Thank you, Helen Withers in Falcon Colorado."

Walking 15k on Saturday or Sunday mornings before breakfast. Unfortunately, the episode doesn't cover the whole walk. But the great Irish music gives me energy for an hour or so! Cold this morning, about 2°c. The winter is approaching. Anyway, thanks for a great podcast and thanks for being an eminent host!" John Adams emailed: “Hi Marc!I've been a fan of your podcast for about a year now, thanks to some local friends who pointed me your way.   I've also been curiously following the issue of diversity which has been an issue of debate on your show this summer.  I was surprised that you had had some backlash, as many people were, about the promotion of women in celtic music.  And then, I was very proud of how you handled the situation...and now, very excited to hear that you're planning an LGTBQ edition next year, with a call out for entries. I'm proud to say that our little celtic group here, in Salt Lake City, is quite diverse for being a small circle of close friends who love practicing and performing Irish and Celtic music as often as we can.  We include a female bodran player (straight, married to our flutist), straight flutist, a gay fiddler (me!), a single male guitarist and our newest, amazing addition of our singer, who is both gay and black.  It's never been our intention to push the 'diversity', however; we just let it be noticed (if at all). In any case, we would love to eventually be part of your music, whether it is for the Diversity issue or any others.  I can point you to our Facebook page and Soundcloud, but we are currently in the process of arranging and getting to the studio to record new pieces that include our singer.  Hopefully you can get a small taste of our sound from what we currently have, and when we have our new songs available, I'll certainly make them available.  I feel that we've been making a lot of progress with our sound and am excited to get the updated recordings done soon! Cheers, and I hope we will be able to provide you with some pleasant tunes soon" Tim Zierer emailed: "Hi Marc, first of all, a big thank you for producing your amazing Celtic music podcast. I’m so in love with it! I’m traveling in my motorhome since the beginning of last year through Canada and USA and had often listen to your podcast on amazing places in the nature with awesome views, ocean, lakes, forest, rain forest, desert, snowy mountains etc. and all the other wonders from our mother earth. In moments when I'm enjoying this good life, listening to the Celtic music makes the moment perfect. no other music better fits to my love of nature as your good selection. Thank you and very best greetings from Utah, United States. Tim, 29 (originally from Germany)"

I am often high up on ladders painting houses while listening but today I am working on remodeling my living room! Keep those tunes rolling! Thanks again for what you do!"   Wesley Combs emailed: "Working my way through one of my final Fridays at my corporate desk job before moving back to the mountains of Southwest Virginia and returning to the family business. I just found the podcast this week and I am really enjoying it! I’ve been diving into Celtic music after Ancestry.com helped me track my heritage back to Scotland in the 1700s. The Southwest Virginia region was a popular place for Scots-Irish to settle because it reminded them of home. In fact my home town is named “Dublin”. Thanks!" Tom Cochran emailed a photo: "Hi Mark, Listening to show #442 while printing invitations to our upcoming Burns Night Dinner. We have hosted this in our community for 15 years now and it has grown from 10 people in our living room to 50 or so in a local hall. We invite friends, some whom are musicians or actors to participate by reciting Robert Burns poetry or singing songs. Some sing other Scottish or Irish songs or present their own songs poetry. It’s also a pot luck with lot’s of great food ( I provide the haggis.) and drink. There’s dancing and laughing and a wonderful sense of community. I know Burns Nights come in various forms from very serious to very silly but I recommend that everyone should experience one. They usually happen around his birthday, January 25 and they happen around the world so you can usually find one nearby. On a different topic, you read a letter on the show by a lady who attended a Highland Games. She was asking what the event was where the hay stuffed bag was thrown with the pitch fork. It’s called the Sheath Toss. Thanks again for all you do to promote Celtic culture."

Second, you had every right to defend your friend/guest host from inappropriate and mean-spirited comments. Also, as someone who has listened to the podcast since sometime during its first year of existence, I think it should be pretty obvious by now that listening to all aspects of Irish and Celtic music and exploring all aspects of the culture has always been what this podcast is about. It seems to me that if you were to bow to the desires and wishes of these internet trolls, you would be going against the very well-established tenets that your podcast has always been based on. This isn't whatever it is these trolls are trying to turn it into. In fact, the only people who are trying to politicize your podcast appear to be those trolls themselves, as far as I can tell. I will continue to listen to and support the podcast for as long as it goes on, and I want to thank you for all that you do to make it such a great podcast."   #celticmusic #irishmusic #irishcelticmusic

There are Australian bushfires, oil spills, erratic temperature changes, earthquakes, hurricanes, the list goes on and on. Life on our planet is in a delicate balance. The Celts knew this. That’s why trees were so important to Celtic culture. It doesn’t matter if you don’t believe all the scientific evidence that points to human-made Climate Change. What is important is stewardship of our planet. We need to take care of it. So in 2020, I want to draw attention to our hurting planet and how we can do just that. That’s why our latest shirt and sticker design includes the Celtic Tree of Life. I’ll be honest. I don’t have specifics as to what we can do. But if you have suggestions, please email me. The 2020 Sainted Celtic Collection is now online. This is a very special package I put together each year to pay for the production of the podcast, but also to give you a way to promote the show.

But you may not what other Celtic podcasts there are online. That’s the reasons I share new episodes of other Celtic podcasts every week in the Celtic Music Magazine. This is one of the benefits of subscribing and reading. You’ll learn about other great shows you might enjoy. What shows? Well, let me share a few. Erin’s Isle is published by Erin Breen, an Emmy award-winning journalist, columnist and writer for television, radio and print who has put 25 years of experience to work honing a true talent for storytelling. Her podcast is internationally known and has become part of the inflight entertainment on Aer Lingus flights to and from Ireland. She explores the out of the way adventures you could easily miss if she weren’t one step ahead of you. Irish Music Stories is published by Shannon Heaton. She plays Irish flute and sings. She LOVEs Irish music and dance, and related Celtic traditions. This show is her way of sharing the rich inspiration that the global ‘trad’ community has given to her, with the stories behind the music. After a long hiatus, Celtic Roots Radio is back. Raymond McCullough in Downpatrick, Co. Down, Northern Ireland whet's yer appetite with Celtic, folk, folk/rock, Appalachian, Breton, bluegrass, Scottish, Irish, Cajun, Cape Breton, singer/songwriter – if its Celtic, roots or acoustic music you want, you'll find it there (plus a wee drop a' Norn Iron craic!). The show is once again publishing new episodes. You can find links to ALL of these podcasts and more at MageNetwork.com. That’s where I publish links to all of my shows and posts links to other Celtic podcasts to share with you in the Celtic Music Magazine. TRAVEL WITH CELTIC INVASION VACATIONS Every year, I take a small group of Celtic music fans on the relaxing adventure of a lifetime. We don't see everything. Instead, we stay in one area. We get to know the region through its culture, history, and legends. You can join us with an auditory and visual adventure through podcasts and videos. Learn more about the invasion at http://celticinvasion.com/ I still have space in 2020 for the Celtic Invasion of Italy. It’s gonna be monumental. You don’t want to miss it!

You can send a written comment along with a picture of what you're doing while listening. Email a voicemail message to celticpodcast@gmail.com Heidi Murphy emailed a photo: "I’m listening to this while editing my book. Lovely Celtic Christmas music! I noticed the other day that you had Round the House on. They're so cool. I've jammed with them before (I play tin whistle and bodhran) and they're delightful. I recently went to the World Highland Games in Tucson, AZ. It was so lovely to watch them toss the caber and hammer. They broke a record in something I don’t know the name of. It’s a 2 stone bail of hay trussed up in canvas they toss with a pitchfork. I’d love to know what that’s called. I was off listening to music and eating haggis and a scone when they announced that name. Here’s a pic of me hiking home from Muckross Abbey after a long day of exploring in the rain. Slainte" Marshall Blosser emailed: "Hey Celtfather, In searching for Newfoundland Celtic artists it dawned on me that you had a 2 hour special on Canadian Celtic music back in 2016. Episode 254 specifically from April 7, 2016.   That episode gave me several artists to look up.  For me specifically, The Rolling Kings, and The Ennis Sisters. As well as a few others from neighboring provinces. My own on-line research found several other artists although I am not sure how many are still active. Listing the ones I can find on either Amazon or CDBaby first: The Irish Descendants, Celtic Connection, Shanneyganook, The Flummies, and Great Big Sea. I know Great Big Sea isn't an active group any more but it's members, specifically Alan Doyle, Sean McCann and Murray Foster have continued to record music. There is one band I want to get some recordings of but I can't find any information on is Greeley's Reel. They've been playing the local St John's pubs for 10 years. As I visit the pubs I will make sure to try and connect any Irish/Celtic bands I find to your submission page. I am also kicking around the idea of starting a podcast of local artists for Newfoundland to help get them some more exposure. Any advise on how you started would be awesome. Looking forward to sending you many new artists" Tim Sommer in Middleton, ID emailed: "Hi Marc, I love your podcast and wanted to support it and was signing up for the $5 per month contribution and I just briefly saw the window to select that.... when what do you know...I was signed up for the $5 per episode.  Couldn’t figure out how to change that number so am asking for your help to change it. Yes, I do think you are worth $5 an episode but if my wife starts seeing the monthly amount for that instead of the $5 per month, she’ll be using her serious face and posture, asking me what I thought I was doing. It could impact my entire Irish and Scottish music habit.  It’s like knowing how many beers you can drink at the session before you are in serious trouble."

Fantastic podcast! I have very very few podcasts downloaded on my phone but this is one. Many episodes bring a warm memory glow in tough times, others open my ears to unheard gems, and others wash splendidly over my celtic heritage-lined body! Thank you! Regards Dr. Ciarán O'Keeffe
