I wanted to write you for some reasons: I want to say hello :), to be thankful with you for your wonderful podcast and say I am proud of you! I hear you every day (I listen to your podcast when I go to work (I am a teacher and the school where I work is one 80 kilometres far). Believe me, I am a celtic music musician... here in the land of Flamenco music! Yes! there are many celtic musicians here as well. I am a whistler and a bodhran player and have a band called Keltya too, three boys and a girl between 15 and 35 years old). We are not the only band in this city. My band knows new musicians and songs thanks to you and your podcast, your podcast is an excellent resource, we enjoy it a lot and you are almost our muse (he he, this is a joke). We invite you to visit us perhaps in our Irish Fleadh in Cáceres every October and of course, to know Cordoba and its impressive celtic culture fans. Thanks a lot for your music (which I use with my pupils) and your podcast. We also wanted to encourage you to speak at some point about Spanish celtic music and Spanish independent bands such as Ambulancia Irlandesa, Carrion Folk or Rivendell.Just dig a bit and you will find many surprises in Spain as well. Best wishes, your friend!" Check out our Galicia music show #206. alexander randall emailed: "It works! You played the St Patricks Day March with the Bookends and I turned around, went to Spotify and listened to the whole album, then went to iTunes and bought the album. You made $10 for the Bookends! Thank you! Keep feeding us rollicking jigs and reels. My only request is to minimize the overlap between cuts in your podcast so folks can carve it up into pieces and just listen to the favorites over and over. When we like it WE BUY... Where is David Clausen of Celtic Stone in Austin. Find him and his hammer dulcimer." Finally, I missed a few congratulatory emails from the 500th episode in March. Robert Gabb of the Celtic Rock Band Brynmor emailed: "Congratulations Marc for reaching your 500th episode, keep up the good work, it's always a pleasure listening to the show. All the best" John, Trix, Karen, Jennifer, Felicia, Mike, and Daphne of The Homespun Ceilidh Band said: "thanks for spreading Celtic music farther and wider, and we look forward to the next five hundred episodes!" Saby emailed: “Of course I would like to congratulate Marc on his success with the Irish and Celtic Music podcast. I wish him all the best with all his projects and always a happy song on his lips. Best regards from Germany”

Now I have a little more time. It's just perfect. I'm listening in Wales, UK - where Celtic music has it's own very strong tradition. The Roots lie mainly in folk dance and the music distinctly Welsh! Please try listening to a great Welsh band Crasdant featuring a Triple Welsh harp. Many good tracks on their album Dwndwr (The great noise) but you could start with the gentle - "Pam". Keep up the good woork, it's the best antidote to these troubled times."

You’ve been such a wonderful guide through this world of music, and I’ll always have a heart full of love for this show and your hard work. I was homeschooled from 4th grade through the end of high school (I’m 24, soon to be 25 now), and your podcast was a constant companion through countless hours spent in my studies. I have the fondest memories of listening to the music you curated (as well as the Brobdingnagian Bards!) as I gazed out at our garden with countless dreams of warriors, wizards, pixies, and pirates dancing through my head. It’s only been recently I realized how criminally underrated you and the show have been, and I just want to say I supremely appreciate all your hard work in spite of this! In my opinion you deserve millions of fans, but the quality of the ones you have more than make up for it. I hope to show my future children this show one day. Take care, and I wish you and yours the absolute best. Sláinte" Jenni Trail emailed a photo on Facebook: "Hi Marc, I have been listening to this podcast for the past few years. I stopped listening for awhile when I was hooked on audiobooks but now I’m back! This summer I am staying with my grandparents in Idaho as I have an internship at a history museum. I’ve been listening to the podcast as I do work around the museum. I’ve attached a photo on some artifacts from the 1930s I cataloged for the museum. I’ve been obsessed with Celtic culture and history for the past few years, I’m a history major and have taken many classes on British history and Scottish history.  I’ve never been to Scotland, but I hope to go to Fife, the area my family is from. Thank you so much for this podcast! I love listening to this music.  Would you be willing to do a Celtic Punk episode? One of my favorite bands is a Celtic punk group called Flatfoot 56."

I particularly love the Andrew Mcmanus song searching for the sun on elisode 493, but cant seem to find it anywhere to download. Anyway, thank you so much for your music, you will never realise just how much it means to me and i look forward to every thursday when i can download and listen! Have a great day, sending lots of love from Wales." David Scovel emailed a photo: "Hi Marc, I thoroughly enjoy the Podcast. I love Celtic Music. I listen to it while I split wood, walk our Boxer, or up on a ladder while washing windows.  Today I was Cross Country Skiing down by the CT River with my favorite girl (who has lots of English, Irish and Scot in her bloodline).

I told my graphic designer, Miranda Nelson, that the St Patrick’s Day show would be the 500th episode of the podcast. She thought about it and came back and asked, “would you mind if I collected some audio feedback from some of the artists on the show.” I said,” sure! That sounds great!” I’ll be honest, I didn’t expect much of a response. But I remembered that she suggested this when I started compiling this 500th episode. She forwarded me some feedback via email. I looked through them and didn’t see any audio. “Oh well,” I thought. “Less than I expected, but that’s fine.” Then I noticed one band mentioned something about including audio in their email. But I never got that. So I emailed and asked Miranda where that audio was. Her response, “it’s in the folder you set up on Google Drive.” Oh yeah! I did do that, didn’t I? I opened up the folder and was floored to find over 60 recordings by Celtic bands wishing me a  happy 500th episode. Wow! Ye know a couple pieces are easy to pop into an episode. But I didn’t think about how to include ALL OF THESE pieces? So what should I do for this show? Instead of me introducing bands and songs, I’m gonna let the artists do it themselves. I will play their congratulations as a way of introducing their music. Course that means if you want to find out the name of the song or tune, you will need to visit the shownotes at CelticMusicPodcast.com or just check your podcatcher. Because each track has a time stamp so you can easily look it up. That said, I’ll have a few moments to break up the music and say hi. But for the most part this is just music and congratulations. I want to thank Miranda Nelson Designs for all of her hard work in making this happen. Miranda has a whole bunch of Celtic shirt designs you should check out at mirandanelsondesigns.com. And I want to thank everyone who has supported this podcast over the past 16 years. And without further adieu, let’s meet the bands. THANK YOU PATRONS OF THE PODCAST!

My husband and I live in Deep East Texas, but on St. Patrick’s Day Eve, we had the rare and wonderful opportunity to see the Chieftains perform in the nearby town of Tyler, Texas! We wore our Celtic finery (photo attached) and enjoyed a splendid show. We also loved the opening act, an Irish/Americana/folk fusion group called Switchback. Thank you for all you do to promote Celtic music!" Steve Cahill sent a St Patrick's Day photo: "Having a great time holding onto a beautiful night St. Patrick’s Day 2019! Slainte!" Jan Czenkusch sent some St Patrick's Day photos from 2019: "After church we went to our son's soccer game.  Interestingly it was the green team (Celtic Cowboys) against the orange team (don't know their name)."

And find more episodes at celticmusicpodcast.com. I have a very special show to share with you today. It’s a tradition that I’ve been doing longer than this podcast. Every St Patrick’s Day since before the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast even existed, I published a blog where I shared 17 Celtic MP3s that you could download for free for St Patrick’s Day. You see, I interact with a LOT of Celtic bands and musicians. They gave me permission to give away some of their music. All they ask is that I tell you where to find out more about them so that perhaps you might buy their music and support them. Today, you will hear ALL of the songs that you will be able download for free on St Patrick’s Day. So if there’s a song or tune that you absolutely love in today’s show. You can either visit their website by following the link in the shownotes, or you can wait until March 14, when I will email you a link where you can download all of the music for free. If you want to jump the gun, the downloads are actually now available to all of our Song Hengers. These folks pledge $5 per episode or more per month to support this podcast on Patreon. I’ll tell you more about that later. 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.

This show started in 2005, a year after podcasting became a phenomena. But even before that my goal was to change the way you hear Celtic music, both as a marketing term and how you listen. I started giving away free music like the 17 for St Patrick’s Day. Then I gave away free podcasts like this and other podcasts I host. In fact, I’d like you to check out 11 St Patrick’s Day Facts in the Pub Songs Podcast. I created that episode with some fun facts about St Patrick’s Day and combined it with music from bands in this podcast. I also launched some St Patrick’s Day stories in that podcast. So subscribe and check it out. I have a free eBook for Celtic musicians. It’s called Celtic Musicians Guide to Digital Music. If you want some internet marketing tips, you will want to get that book. And I realized after compiling this list, that that’s a lot of things to share. So if you send an email to email address in the show, then you will get links to all of these freebies. Plus there’s a few exclusive podcast episodes that are not in the public feed. And I’ll show you how to get a free CD of mine while they last. #celticmusic #irishmusic #celticpodcast I WANT YOUR FEEDBACK What are you doing today while listening to the podcast?

I came from Brasil but I've  live in Austria since 2015. When I arrived here, everything was so different that I was very sad at the beginning. So I wanted to hear something that could make me feel better. I looked for Radio that Irish and/or Scottish music played, because I love such music. And "voila" - I found your podcast and since then it is being my company specially during my walkout with my dog. I am your fan and I love the music selections. I always try to write those I like more to find out more about the artists. Thanks for your amazing work.

As rough as 2020 was , the Irish and Celtic Music podcast remained a bright spot and ongoing inspiration to me. And the podcast is beginning 2021 just as outstanding as ever. In other news: you may recall that my older son Jackson, high school orchestra violist, got to perform in Carnegie Hall with Irish tenor Eric Cahill in march in NYC St. Patrick’s Day parade in 2018. Well, my younger son Michael plays trumpet in the high school band, and they have been invited to participate in the St. Patrick’s Day parade in 2022 in......wait for it....DUBLIN!

He’s on Facebook under “That Irish Guy”. I can across him randomly and thought I’d share!" Daniel Flowerdew emailed a question: "Hello ?? first I wanted to say I have been listening to your podcast since the early 2000’s. I have always enjoyed it and have found a ton of great music through it! One of which I am trying to find! I wanted to contact you to see if you could help. It was maaaaaaany years ago. I believe it was something like “Wandering Mary” ? It was about a woman that waited by the shore for her William, eventually joined a ship crew, found him cheating on her so she shot him and then became a pirate. Maybe “Dreaded Mary” ? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you for all of the great tunes and humor throughout the years." I don't really have time to help people find songs. But I threw out a few suggestions and eventually figured out he was looking for "Devilish Mary" by The Whiskey Bards. That was in episode #40 from 2007. If there is a song you're looking for, you should definitely check out the Irish & Celtic Music Club on Facebook. It's a great resource for finding more Celtic music. And there are a lot of listeners who are a part of the group.

Hope things are going well!  Still immensely enjoying the podcast.  It's been quite helpful as I hike around state parks to get some socially distanced exercise and keep sane during my ten months (so far) of working from home.  A few pictures are attached of various hikes that I was taking while listening to your various shows.  There's nothing like having the bagpipes come on as you crest a hill and see a beautiful lake! Also, I'm enjoying the variety in the shows.  Bagpipe and Irish pub tunes are my two favorites, but being exposed to other fusion genres and having a nice mixture of genders and of cultures is awesome.   Keep up the good work!" Mike Nichols emailed: "I think you have played a track from Sea Star on one of your programs I have heard.  I believe Faye was part of a duo that performed under the moniker of Syren. I have one track of theirs from the old "noise trade " or downloads,com days. Red is the Rose: I love this track to a degree that is not reasonable. Wondering if you have any information about where that music catalog might be available. Would love to hear Great Selkie or Moon Jubilee, I'm sure your cast experience could weave either of those into a fantastic episode of one of creatures and the other of celebration songs. Just Mike's opinion. Thanks for a terrific show. Your great work helps me with long drives at my work. I've been busily sharing the show with a few select friends. Thanks again" David Black emailed: "Hi, Further to your episode #483 about being poor but happy I would suggest an Irish song immediately suited to this subject called Cad É Sin Don Té Sin (a rather strange expression in the Irish Language meaning, what's it to you if it doesn't bother you). Altan have done a great version with a different melody." KIM KNEBEL emailed: "Hi Marc. Just listened to the recent podcast featuring women in Celtic music. Suggestion for the new version: The Holman sisters of Tuatha Dea (Rebecca Mullikin) and their violinist, Laura Smith. The song Alienn Dun is haunting and their voices just amazing. While they've gone a bit more to the rock side, their older music has a Celtic/Gypsy flair. Laura is a newer addition and is pretty amazing. Thank you for all you do!!"

Email a voicemail message to celticpodcast@gmail.com Carson Sprenger emailed a photo: "So glad I found your podcast on this day. I live on a small island in the Pacific Northwest. Years ago in college I studied irish history and literature.  I spent six months traveling in your dear county, hitching and working on farms in the year of 1995.  My goodness, in these times and in the dark of winter it's such a good thing to discover good music and hear of the good people dedicated to supporting independent music and thought.  Hats off to you.  You made my day.” Iris Pea M. Tyczynska emailed from Bournemouth, England: "Hey there, Thanks a lot for the podcast :3. I like Irish and Celtic music a lot, so it's a treat. While listening, I dance with my hula hoop ??. I can send you a video next time if you like. When I'm not dancing, I drink local apple juice from a green wine glass while chilling on the sofa ?????" Eric Guarin emailed: "Well, I guess I skipped New Year's, but am just finishing listening to the Celtic Christmas Women episode. Really nice! I especially thought the closer (Sharon Shannon's "Christmas Time Again") totally fabulous-if it could ever get mainstream play it could become a new classic. I did notice that in Apple CarPlay, the name of the song and artist pops up. Cool! Has anyone else mentioned that? But at the same time, I'd suggest putting the artist name first. The reason is that display space even on an 8" screen cuts off the artist name. And last or alas, I had really really hoped to join a Celtic Invasion, but you will be roaming during my last week of the school year.*  :-(   Well, another time, I hope. Cheers" Aaron Adair commented on Patreon: "That was much-needed salve, Mark. Thank you for sharing your love with us all. Be well."

I did like the running podcast you did even though I don’t run.  Appreciate your podcast. Thanks much for all the music." Terry E. asked by email: "Hi Marc ... Will Celtic Music Mag be featuring anything on Leahy and also the band Cécilia (Erin Leahy is also a member of this band as well) ... as they both have new CD’s out and Leahy has a Christmas song out too ... it would be great to see/ hear them on your podcasts or magazine.  Thank you for taking time to read my rant for the day..." Trevor N. Teuscher emailed: "Hey Marc, I have something of a request for a song to play on a future podcast, if it is possible. I don't recall if you have ever played any songs by the band Touchstone or not. I wouldn't be surprised if you haven't since they were only active in the early 1980's. However it was lead by the still active and highly influential Tríona Ní Dhomhnaill. On their album, The New Land, is a song titled Susannah Martin. This song brings together two seemingly very different interests of mine: Irish and Celtic Music and the history of the Salem Witch Trials. I have recently been studying a lot about the history of the Salem Witch Trials, since I recently discovered various familial connections to many of the people involved in those historical events. Susannah Martin, the subject of the song, is especially important to me personally, since she is my 10th great grandmother. The song tells her story in a hauntingly beautiful way. Anyway, I don't know how easy it would be to get permission to play songs from a band that hasn't been together for several decades, but if you can, I would be grateful. Slainte, Trevor"

You mentioned you like pictures so I thought I would send some! I listened to your Samhain episode and a few others from the backlog whilst wild camping the James Heriot Way (a 52 mile circular walk through Wensleydale & Swaledale) in the Yorkshire Dales for three days over the Halloween weekend. With the whirling leaves and autumn fellsides the podcast set the perfect magical atmosphere. The inspiring music was exactly what I needed to pick me up when my energy started to lag hiking down from the head of Swaledale as the sun set, and your cheerful commentary really kept my spirits high while I was night hiking under the full moon on Halloween night and looking for an appropriate place to pitch up! Thank you for spreading such awesome music." Sophia MacKay emailed: "Hello Mark! I first found the podcast through my mother, and have been listening for about 6 years now. It’s the soundtrack to my 40 minute walk to and from work, and what usually I listen to while I knit. What prompted me to finally reach out is the latest episode of the podcast. I wanted to make sure you knew Heather Alexander is now Alexander James Adams. He transitioned, and is therefore no longer a “Celtic woman”. I don’t know myself how to handle dead names when it comes to musicians with work still under their old name, but I’m sure you will do so with grace, considering your commitment to equality and diversity with your podcast." I did know that of course. I was a big fan of Heather Alexander’s work, which is why I reached out to Alex. After getting that emailed, I realized I should've asked Alex before adding Heather to the Celtic Woman show. So I did. Alexander James Adams responded: "Thanks for playing the music. No apologies needed. Heather was proud of her femininity. She worked hard at it.?? I tend to refer to her as a separate person, though I show her off vocally when it is needed. (It’s taken years to get a good falsetto??) I like to think that I just have her running around in the background, making commentary like they do for movies on the bonus DVD. It’s a red head thing! I’m fairly open with the fact that I transitioned and leave it up to each individual as to how or what they say. You can go with the “faerie tale” if you like; Heather being a changeling returned home and me being a Stolen Child released, or you can be straight with your audience. I trust your judgement. I’m honoured and happy for you to play the music of the Heatherlands. As the Heir, I keep the magic alive by holding all that has been done equal to all that will be. Honesty is always fulfilling for me. Again, thank you for supporting my music, especially this year. I’m glad you’re getting through this still standing and wish you great advancement in the new year! Happy Holidays!"
