Always good company...#,-)"   James Martin emailed: "Hey Marc, not sure if you’re helping to share musicians streaming or not, but there’s a guy up in Seattle who streams music for 2 hours on Saturday evenings (7:30 to 9:30 pst) if anyone is looking for an Irish Music Fix on the weekends. 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!!"

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."

Carol E replied to the Celtic Music Magazine: "Got the music. I just listen so I can’t tell you who my favorites are. 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 can send a written comment along with a picture of what you're doing while listening. Email a voicemail message to celticpodcast@gmail.com Pete from The Bookends emailed: "Hi Marc - thanks so much for featuring us off the top of your podcast this week and for supporting Irish & Celtic music.  We're thrilled you bought the record and went on to play it on your show" Maddy Churchhouse emailed some photos: "Hi Marc, Love the podcast. 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!"

Thanks for the podacst anyway! My favourite one and not like "oh I don't know they are all great" but truly honestly the most loved podcast!" Teddy Zeitlin emailed: "I just found your podcast. I am in the USA. In my 70s. I always loved folk music. I always found the sound of Irish music to be so comforting, so down to earth.  I was in Dublin a couple of years ago, and loved it.  Ireland is one of the places I hope to be able to visit again. COVID-19 go away!!! A couple of years ago while taking my then 8 year old granddaughter to Hebrew school, I put on a local Irish music show in the car. She loved the music. Glad I was able to pass that on to her. She plays violin. Hopefully one day the fiddle." (Gene) Brewer replied to the Celtic Music Magazine: "Yes, I did retrieve the free tracks and have installed them into my library, which continues to grow. Thank you very much. A few of my favorite bands/artists that I know names for are: Slainte (out of Seattle I believe but think they has broke up) Celtic Fiddle Festival (Kevin Burke is tremendous on the fiddle) Chieftains Altman There’s lots of artists I like but I don’t know or recall exactly their names. Right now I am living in a small SoCal desert town and there is no Celtic music scene here to my knowledge. this why I stream a lot of music. I’m retired so my entertainment funds are limited. so I look for the most for the least. Some people call it cheap, I call it frugal. However I’ll be getting the bumper sticker offer to help out the cause. My heritage is Irish (Ussery from County Cork), English, German and Cherokee Indian. My internet is flaky and sometimes real slow (DSL) like last night. Had trouble streaming the podcast. Looking into getting a better ISP."

This makes it easier for you to find out who is playing and what the awesome track is. A few months ago, we started using an app called Forecast which creates chapters to make it even more easy. I can’t find the email. But a month or so ago, someone emailed and suggested that I put the artist name first, instead of listing the song first. I just did that.

Kristina Arroyo emailed a photo: "I’m working on this piece while listening to your beautiful show, started this on winter solstice." Scott Selhorst emailed from Dayton, Ohio: “Hello Marc, I have been a fan, a listener, and a supporter for a long time.  Listening to episode 491 got me thinking about this.  Episode 18 (April 2006) is still one I listen to every so often. My kids, much younger then, thought 4:15-4:20 was pretty cool.  You might think that is a very specific, possibly strange, 5-second range.  Listen to it, and you will understand why 4, 8, and 9 year old kids would think that was pretty cool.  I cannot recall how I initially found your music, but you introduced me to this genre of music, which I enjoy immensely.  Thank you."

Email a voicemail message to celticpodcast@gmail.com Nova Fortier sent a beautifully satirical question: "Mark, I’ve been listening to your podcast on and off for a couple of years. I enjoy most of your podcasts, your updates on where life finds you. But, when you label something ‘female’ or ‘women’ on your podcasts, I am just extremely confused as to why you included any male voices on your latest podcast? I mean, truly, now, why must I endure male voices on a titled podcast to showcase female voices? Looking at all the musical recordings and references throughout history, surely the male ego has been adequately stroked to allow for women to, truly, be able to showcase their own musical abilities without treading on the chrystalline male ego? Sure, you, as a master musician in your own right, can do better, to research an entirely female show when it is marked as such? Yes, that was stroking your fragile male ego, because, after listening to you for so long, I’ve learned that you need such proddings. Simple male, will you never evolve to meet your female sister, ever?" Trip McCool emailed: "Marc, I want to thank you for playing "Gravy In The Grave". Both my wife and I had Grandfathers who fought in WWI and suffered poisoning from Mustard Gas. It was tough time for young Irish men who returned to a world with little to no support for the insanities of war. The ravages of the mind, body and soul. My Grandfather Frederick Michael Dougherty, was one of those who "Let the women do the thinking and the men do the drinking." Add four children, the stock market crash, the great depression and 'the old boy' was off for the greener pastures of the mind. When my father said, "You don't know what growing up tough is." he meant it! "You want gravy with your spuds! Sweet Jesus will give ya Gravy in The Grave." Keep your guard up!" James Martin emailed a photo: "I am frying up some giblet doggy treats while doing some thanksgiving meal prep. Someone in my house is very excited about these treats." Michael Carey emailed a photo: "always enjoy listening to your podcast when I am out walking my wife’s sulcatta tortoise.  Here is the pic of Groot the tortoise and Iggy the iguana in West Palm Beach Florida"

I am a 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. In every episode, I ask you to vote for your favorite tracks in that show. Your votes for those beloved songs and tunes are added up at the end of the year so that I can bring you the Celtic Top 20. It is my great pleasure to share with you the Top 20 Celtic Songs and Tunes of 2020. These tracks were voted on BY YOU! Your vote matters, not just in a democratic election that brings President-Elect Joe Biden to the White House next month. It also matters for creating this incredible list from twenty amazing bands. 2020 was a crazy year. The livelihood of thousands of Celtic musicians vanished in a blink of an eye. Streaming music is more popular than ever. But it pays nothing. I can’t help but wonder how many of these incredible artists will continue creating music. So as you listen to this show, I want you to think about how you can help these amazing artists. In fact, I might throw out a few suggestions during the show. CELTIC PODCAST NEWS If you’re a Celtic musician, I still have a free eBook that I want you to read. It’s called Celtic Musicians Guide to Digital Music. It includes a lot of the things I learned over the years promoting Celtic music online. It will be updated in the months to come. Maybe I’ll even finally officially release it. In the meantime, just subscribe to the Celtic Music Magazine and it’s yours. 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/ THANK YOU PATRONS OF THE PODCAST! Because of Your kind and generous support, this show comes out every week.

I love hearing what you think of this show and sharing it here. While feedback is great right here, it’s also super important in a public setting. Like reviews on iTunes or your favorite podcatcher. It’s also hugely important to musicians. If you enjoy an artist’s music, tell someone. You can do it as a review on iTunes or Amazon. You can post how much you love a song on social media. You can email the artist and say thanks. In the meantime, What are you doing today while listening to the podcast? 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 Jason Denen emailed: "Hey Marc, thanks so much for all the celtic Christmas music. This episode had so many wonderful tracks I hadn't heard before. I'm lucky to have a job where I can work from home, but being in the same spot every days gets wearying. It's great to have new music to fill the space. I find most Christmas music that gets played on the radio trends to the same old tracks. I do like the classics, but they get so overplayed during the holidays." Georgy Grigoryev emailed: "Hi Marc, Is it possible to listen Irish and Celtic music podcast on Spotify? I tried to look for it but there’s no results." Sadly, no but you can enjoy the Celtic Top 20 on Spotify through our Top Irish & Celtic Music Playlist. This playlist has many of the tracks featured on the Celtic Top 20 for the past 15 years. Sadly, it doesn’t have all. Some are no longer available. But it has most of them. J Dickerson saw my moniker and asked: "Ok.  What does Celtfather mean?" Celtfather was a nickname given to me by Les Howard of The Signal Podcast. I was one of the earliest and biggest promoters of independent Celtic music on the internet starting back in 1999. Everyone else was going through the traditional promotional means through radio, magazines and anywhere a publicist would send your material. I took a different strategy. I created an internet newsletter and website with the Celtic Music Magazine. In 2005, I started the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast. I soon had the #1 most-downloaded podcast for Celtic music in the world. So when I met Les, he came up with The Celtfather moniker. I loved it and started using it to brand myself. Of course, in 2010, it took on new meaning when my first daughter was born.

Actually, I’m not sure if I want the job. I’m also happy with my current one. I’ve been facing so many dilemmas these days. Anyway, one thing I’m sure is that I‘m so deeply in love with celtic and irish music! I might share my poorly sung celtic songs with you some day!

I enjoy the music, and thanks for taking the time and effort to put this together every week! There wasn’t a specific link to email you with my vote for the picture, but I liked the traditional Irish one better than the Americanized Halloween image. Sorry, since I know you put some effort into making that image, but that’s it. Have you heard of Emma Langford? She’s brilliant and would be a great addition to the podcast some day. I could send you a picture of me in front of my Zoom green screen, but it would be rather boring, I think."

I love the podcast so far!  Can't wait to hear more."

Keep up the good work!" Forrest Iwanik emailed: "Hi Marc, I’ve been listening to your pod for a good while now and it’s helped me pass many a day of work here in a drinking water quality lab up in Massachusetts. I listen to a lot of Celtic music and I always find new stuff on your show, I really appreciate you giving voice to the new and lesser known artists. Listening to episode 481 today, I loved that track by NUA. Hoping to hear more by them! I am, as I’m sure we as a community are, badly missing the experience of live music so I’m especially grateful for shows like yours, Celtic Sojourn on WGBH, and Celtic Twilight on WUMB (both Boston stations) introducing fresh, high quality audio produce. Keep up the great work and know you’re helping keep some beauty in a lot of our lives in these dreary times."

Colleen Ware emailed: "Hi from Delaware, Thank you so much for this music.  I first became familiar with Celtic music when my children did Heritage Dancing (Irish and Scottish) through 4-H.  I have been in love ever since. I discovered your podcast while I was searching for Celtic music, and listen when I can, especially when my email comes. In 2018 my husband and I were lucky enough to go to Celtic Colors in Cape Breton, where a favorite was the music in pubs. Then in 2019 we spent a month in Scotland, taking in music wherever we could find it. Unfortunately, due to Covid, we had to cancel our return trip in May.  Hopefully soon.  I weave and spin, and usually listen while I weave.  In this very difficult time of the virus and political insanity in the USA, the music and the throwing of the shuttle are very calming.  Today I am listening while I thread my heddles with the Harris/Lewis wool my husband managed to pack in the extra suitcase he took just for me to indulge my “fiber addiction”. Take care and stay safe.” Vicki Beach emailed a couple photos from Kentucky: "I have always LOVED Irish and Celtic music!!! I come from a musical family, but I actually design and make jewelry as a little side hustle since retiring! And I just spent the fastest 2 hours of my life working to your newly found podcast on Amazon music!!! I am particularly fond of instrumental Celtic. I also love Bluegrass music and am a huge fan of the band New Grass Revival, and so much of this music sounds like Blugrass’s/Newgrass kissin’ cousin!! This is me and this is what  I  do while listening to your podcast!!! Thanks so much from those of us who are a wee bit Celtic (even named our kids Celtic names-Duncan and Kelsey). I’m SO glad I found this podcast!"

Email a voicemail message to celticpodcast@gmail.com Jared Ulmer emailed: "Hi mark, long time listener and big fan here. I had a quandary I was curious if you had any insight on. I've recently started collecting vinyl, however my Celtic record collection is much smaller than I like. It seems like alot of older artists are out of print and newer artists distribute mostly digitally. Are you aware of any resources to find groups, perhaps ones featured on your podcast that offer music in this format?" David Turner replied to the Celtic Music Magazine: "Hello Marc, Thank you so much for your podcast which has been a constant companion these past few months. It’s very weird listening to pre Covid episodes with you expressing all the freedom of looking ahead with anticipation! Ah weill . Now favourites could be a long list! However, I still get prickles remembering the immense, involuntary roar at the conclusion of a concert by The Battlefield Band in Port Fairy in 1991, a roar not generated in the vocal chords, but deep from the core, as Big Iain and Wee John finally brought their frenzied duet to a close, the entire tent vibrating and humming with exhilaration. Tears in my eyes again! Yes, what a band, so my fave Scottish band. Honorary mentions to Dick Gaughan, Aly Bain and Dougie McLain. To Ireland, and Mary Black. Now this choice could well be clouded by my intense infatuation, but her Song for Ireland stops me in my tracks every time. Andy Irvine is also a hero. Keep up the good work Marc, we need good people like you! Warm regards. David” Bill Wall emailed a photo: "Cead Mille Failte. (I probably misspelled that) I'd been meaning to subscribe for a while, but when I heard a few people drop off I knew I needed to step up. The music of your podcast stirs up many emotions in me. I have been sober for 5 years now, and I listen to your podcast driving to one of my favorite 12-step meetings about 40 minutes away from my house. For all of the Wild Roving I've done, with Celtic music in the background, it's great to hear the music on the way to centering myself. The drive is from my stereotypically suburban environment into a wooded canyon where we meet at a monastery. The monastery has green hills behind it for a beautiful hike, which reminds me of my time in Ireland. Since I know you like pictures, I thought I'd include these two. Thank you for all you do to keep bringing the happy war songs and sad love songs."

I've enjoyed the podcast for months, and appreciate the energy and positivity you bring while introducing listeners to new bands - I especially enjoy the themes that come with each episode. it's obvious you love what you're doing and it is fun to listen along. There is something special for me about the stories and instrumentation of Irish and celtic music that creates such a strong sense of place - songs can quickly carry you away to memories of good times, help you find perspective in hard times, see the world anew and wander with an open heart down the road of life. I live in Alexandria, Virginia where we're lucky to have several pubs that that regularly feature exceptional live irish and celtic performers, and it has been hard stuck at home missing out on the community and camaraderie of a night at the pub. Thanks for providing an hour or two of joy each week as we get through this together. Cheers, Joe" And our very own audio editor Mitchell Petersen emailed a photo of his new 2020 Irish & Celtic Music Podcast shirt saying: “Shirt looks great!”
