It throws homage to my ancestral roots in this incredibly busy reality. Please know it is so much appreciated this portal you have created...Thank you!"       Thom Danger Speck emailed photos: "It’s a cold Saturday evening up in Toronto. I’m getting ready for a gig tonight but first, jamming to your podcast as I make my family a shepherds pie! Stay warm!" Bill Smith emailed: "First, I'm playing computer games while listening, as usual. Second, the bale of hay that they toss with a pitch fork is called the Sheaf Toss. All the best." Trevor Teuscher emailed: "Mark, Thanks for standing your ground on the 'SJW' comment. First of all, it is your podcast, so you can include whatever you feel is important for your podcast. 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

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.

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."

Keep it up!" Tom Cochran emailed: "Hi Mark, Tom C from the highlands of western Colorado. Just recently found your podcast from a post on my Clan’s Facebook page. Have listened to several now and find the diversity of music refreshing and matching my own musical tastes which are eclectic. I enjoy everything from classical, to musical theatre, classic rock, folk, and of course Celtic music in its many forms. My wife and I along with son Brendan and friend Jonathan make up Oran Mor. We have been playing a lot these past few months locally and are planning our first recording in the coming year. As a long time theatre geek ( presently directing  Conor McPhearson’s Irish Drama “The Veil”) I am new to the music business. So I would appreciate any advice. You can check out our web page at oranmormusic.com. Favorite influences include, Dougie McIean, Runrig, Battlefield Band, Old Blind Dogs, Silly Wizard, Albannach, The Elders and the Chieftains. I am really liking the new groups your show is turning me onto; new fave Runa. I look forward to many hours of great music. Keep up the good work." Junya emailed: "hi. im from Japan. im a very casual listener, and i dont have the habit of checking the song titles and artists names, so i have no knowledge, but have been listening to your podcast for, probably more than 10 years. i felt like listening to such music in Christmas time in December, over 10years ago, (im not Christian and l am japanese living in Japan, so i dont have a chance to experience the Westerners' christmas festivity, but i always long to join their Christmas mood) and tried searching, then your website was the top result. somehow irish and celtic music sounds very nice to me even though im not a fan of any ethnic type of music very much. the song i liked from this Halloween podcast was The Rogue's Hellbound Sleigh, with the club music like beautiful and cool elements mixed in."

But I tried to google it and can’t find it. Please help me! Where can I find this song and artist? Thank you for your wonderful podcast. I started playing harp this year and have found your show very inspiring!" You can find Nick Hennessey at http://nickhennessey.co.uk/. Sadly, I don’t see his CD as available. José Villanueva Music emailed: "Hi Marc!  Firstly I wanna say Congratulations!!! Your podcast is great and I listen to it as much I can. I've been looking for a song called "The Hunter Set" but I didn't find the episode where you set it. I had a tried on Youtube but they deleted the video. Do you have the complete name or your episode? Thank you so much! Cheers from Sonora, Mexico!" Tanya Sapien emailed: "Hey Marc, Tanya Sapien here, I re-wrote this like ten times, so sorry if it seems scatterbrained. I've been listening to you for years, I can't remember when or where I first picked the podcast up, and I've been meaning to write in for ages but I always chickened out, always that is until now. In your last episode a trans woman wrote in and said she's had a hard time finding others like herself in the audience, so being a trans woman myself I took that as a sign it was time to speak up. Your podcast has always brought warmth into my life from things as mundane as tending the fire pit to as exciting as my recent cross-country bus ride to meet my boyfriend face-to-face for the first time. Your chipper positivity has been a beacon of light in a dark world, and when I'm constantly surrounded by people that choose hating their enemies before loving their friends and who insist every single facet of life has to be a political statement, I'm glad I still find refuge here. There's no left or right, no black nor white, No red against blue we don't fight over hue We're just here to play so sing here all day shed your dismay in Gunn's name I say; Have a beautiful Yule today." #celtictop20 #bestcelticmusic #topcelticmusic

My wife and I are listening to episode 430 while driving from Galway to Dublin. It’s our last couple of days on the Emerald Isle and one stop is definitely going to be Cobblestone in Dublin for some amazing live trad tunes. One thing I’ve been surprised about being over here is the lack of cd shops. Back in the States we stream everything, but I understand why artists over here don’t want to be on services like Spotify. We’re going to explore Claddagh Records tomorrow and I’m optimistic we’ll find a pretty solid selection. I don’t know how much more work it is for you, but to include album links in the episodes would definitely help us in finding the artist and knowing which album to purchase. Just throwing that out there. Love the podcast, we’ve been binging it these past two weeks here in Ireland. It’s definitely made the experience that much more special." Joseph Rosenthal emailed: "Hey Marc! I've been listening for about 2 months now and love hearing the diverse styles of Celtic music and helps me expand my knowledge on artists. I was going to email a favorite local Celtic group I listen to religiously during the Maryland Renaissance Festival called The Hooligans, but I'm unsure if you've played them already since you and they've been around for a couple years. Is there a condensed archive of Artists you have shared on your Podcast available? Keep up the good work! And good on you for imploring that no hate comes to your podcast! I like the focus on the positivity!" #celticchristmas #irishchristmas #scottishchristmas

I’m proud to say that completed five episodes entirely dedicated to the women of Celtic music, with the generous help of Lady Susan of Thunder on the Plains. I feel like this podcast grew a lot as we talked about gender equality in Celtic music. So much so that I plan to continue my quarterly episodes dedicated to the ladies. Now many of the shows featured soloists or females bands. But I think in 2020, I’m gonna expand and just highlight all women for these episodes: the singers, the instrumentalists, whomever.

I was just listening to Episode 437 of the podcast here at work and thought I'd finally write in. I've been listening since the early days. Today, I'm getting jiggy with it while at work at NASA Goddard Spaceflight Center. Satellites don't take holidays, but the awesome music always makes my work day go by faster." Rollin Butler emailed: "Hi Marc, we watch a PBS kIds animated show called “Molly of Denali”, and they had an episode of Fiddle Playing, “Jigging,” like Irish Step Dancing. I wondered if you have info about the Irish influence on the Alaska peoples, maybe from “Yukon gold Rush.”  Keep up the good work, and don’t let the Naysayers get you down." KIM KNEBEL emailed: "Greetings Marc and family. Sitting in my cozy warm bed listening to the program before getting busy for the celebrations. I love the show and really appreciate the diversity you showcase. I adore traditional Celtic music, of course, but things evolve and it's fun to see how folks have used the auld tunes to launch new music. I usually key up the podcasts on my trip up north for jewelry making classes. Makes the commute go by quickly and very pleasantly. Thank you for all you do to promote Celtic culture through the podcasts, newsletter and trips. Slainte!??" Nancy Klein emailed photos: "Dear Mark, I am an American woman who loves your show. I listen to it in Spain, where I live now. We used to live in Ireland where I really enjoyed listening to music there. So your show brings Ireland back to me. Here are three photos of the Dingle Peninsula in Ireland, where you will be going on your upcoming trip with fellow Celtic music lovers. Enjoy!

HOW TO VOTE IN THE CELTIC TOP 20We are near the end of the year. That means there are just a couple more weeks left for you to vote in the Celtic Top 20. The Celtic Top 20 is a poll for you to pick the best songs of each episode of the podcast. At the end of the year, I compile the twenty most-popular songs of all episodes into one very special, extra-long episode. Your last day to vote for your favorite Celtic songs of this year is on December 18, 2019. There are many ways you can vote. I will list two below. The most-obvious way to vote is to just relax and listen to the show. Each time you come across a song or tune that blows you away, write down the show time. Then head over to the shownotes at CelticMusicPodcast.com. I list the times of each song played in the show. If you wrote down 5:56, you can find exactly what song was played at that timestamp. Just copy the band name and the show number. Go to BestCelticMusic.net/vote/ and cast your vote. You can repeat this procedure with as many tracks as you want in the show. That’s the basic way. But sometimes you want to give every song a solid chance to be heard. So now I want to share tips on how to make voting easier, using a method I use when picking my favorites. Step 1. At the top of each episode of the podcast, I list every artist in the show. Copy and paste that list into a notes program along with the show number. I use Evernote. So that’s where I paste it. Step 2. Listen to the episode. If any song or tune doesn’t impress you, look at the show time to find out the band name. Delete that band from the list. Step 3. Repeat that procedure until you’re done. Step 4. Go vote at BestCelticMusic.net/vote/. Post all of the band names that remain in your list in the voting form. Congrats you’re done! I know. I’m a bit anal about voting. But sometimes I’m impressed by multiple artists. So I want to give each a chance to be heard again. Either of these methods of voting are great with me. Ultimately, I want you to just enjoy the show. But the Celtic Top 20 is something special. This is a chance for many artists to get extra special attention. The tracks are also added to our Top Irish & Celtic Music Playlist on Spotify. It’s a big honor. But these artists need your votes to earn it. So go vote in the Celtic Top 20 today!

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 Tim Meushaw emailed two years ago: "Hi, Marc, I have been a listener for a very long time, but usually when I'm listening I'm doing fairly mundane things, like cleaning or driving.  But I was on holiday on the Isle of Mull, in the Inner Hebrides, for a few days last week, and listened to episode 332 while hiking north to Ardmore Bay, outside of Tobermory.  They say that on a clear day, you can see to the Isle of Skye, which reminded me of next year's Celtic Invasion.  I can't say I actually saw Skye, but the rest of the scenery was breathtaking. To prove I was listening, I made a short video of the bay, with "Sláinte Mhaith" from that episode playing as background music.  Hope you enjoy!" Tim followed up a few days ago and reminded about this email. So let me say first I am sorry Tim that I missed your email. I haven a much better system for including your feedback into the show. And hopefully, I won't run into that problem again in the future. Thank you so much for sharing the video too. If you want to watch Tim's video. Head on over to the shownotes. Fred Gilbertson emailed some photos in July 2018: "Hi Marc, I listened to your podcast for the 1st time yesterday. I had spent some time in the morning deleting other stuff from and then adding new stuff on my iPod. I think I stumbled upon your show doing an iTunes search for Natalie MacMaster. Anyway, I loaded the podcast on and later I rode my bike. My 1st new listen was to an NPR New music podcast, and when it ended I switched to your show. I enjoyed it a lot, and I intend to listen again in the future. You read a note from the listener in Suffolk, England and told of the pictures he had attached for your viewing pleasure, and you welcomed “us” to send more. Right at that moment I happened to be at a spot that I thought you would find interesting. I was on the Colonial Parkway, near Williamsburg, VA. I stopped right where I was and took 3 pictures, rode another mile or so and took 2 more. It was a rather gloomy day, but it is always rather glorious out on this stretch of the earth. On one 1 side of the parkway where I stopped, there is a farm that’s called “Gospel Spreading Farm”, which, due to its religious identity, is the only residence and farm that remained when the land was cleared decades ago for the construction of the parkway. Same spot, looking to the southwest, you see the James River Same spot, sort of northwest in direction, more of the James as well as the southern tip of Jamestown Island, where the colonists arrived in 1607. About a mile away, the James w/ a look at the Surry Nuclear Power Station Same spot, a selfie." Brandon Ball emailed a photo in May: "Love the podcast First podcast I ever listened to, back in 2009. Keep turning them out! And please play Drunken Night in Dublin by The Mahones? Here’s what I just built while listening to the most recent podcast. Whiskey you’re the devil is playing now. It’s a box for sprouts! Thanks Marc, Great listening," Kathy Levin emailed in March 2017, “Hey Marc, Hope all is going well. You always ask what people are doing while listening to your Celtic Podcast - well I spend many days here at work (WD-40 Company) catching up on back episodes I have not listened to while working. I use this to drown out the fact I work in an area with some very noisy people. Today I am setting the mood for an Irish Rovers concert we are going to tonight. On another note:  Would you please send me the link for artists that would like to have their music on the Podcast?  I have a great guy that I met last year at an SCA event and then re-connected with last month who is interested. He is out of Canada and is also on Patreon. Thanks for the great music!"   #celticmusic #celtictop20 #irishmusic

Deanna was the lead singer of the Celtic rock band Jiggernaut. I remember seeing her at the Texas Scottish Festival years ago. There was a ceilidh I was leading. She sang a song a capella, and everyone in the tent held their breath as she sang. It was strong and powerful. I can’t say I knew her super well. But each time I interacted with her, I was humbled by kindness. She was a big part of the Texas Celtic community and she will be missed.

My sister and I lost both our parents in the past two years. We took this trip, no kids or spouses, to celebrate our heritage and our parents lives. We flew into Glasgow, hopped into an RV, and spent 10 days visiting, Glencoe, Skye, Inverness, attended the Strathmore Highland Games at Glamis Castle, and Edinburgh.

I wrote to you some time ago, and you responded promptly - however, I did not act promptly, and now am inquiring: —I understand you do not want to receive physical CDs. —You mentioned the process and preferred format for sending you an album - could you send that again? —Thank you, and I apologize for having to inquire! I have a new 10-piece band called “BRASS LASSIE”,  traditional Scottish and Irish music (on fiddles, flutes, pipes, concertina, voice, women players) with a four piece horn section (all women horn players). 8 of the 10 band members are women, including myself - the founder and director. I would love to send our studio album to you, released this fall! So far, I’ve done little to promote it, mainly because I can’t figure out how to do that... Many thanks"

Hope this is good data - Thanks a bunch" David O'Brien emailed: "Hey Marc, I'm a welder, and while I'm baking myself alive each day, I listen to a few podcasts on Stitcher. Ran across yours almost a year ago, and am still working through the backlog. I just listened to "Don't Go Drinking with Hobbits" last week, and I get through a couple episodes per day, mixed in with other podcasts, mostly historical. I enjoy your show and have recommended it to many people, including some musicians at the MN Renaissance Festival. Keep the music coming. Slainte" Mark L emailed. I'm not actually gonna read it. Because it was a very disgraceful, hate-filled message attacking me for supporting diversity with the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast. I confess it upset me. In part because Mark attempted to use God to spread...hate. Which is the complete opposite from the message Jesus taught. Our society has grown. We are better than that. The Celts suffered hate-filled crimes. We should learn from those crimes. We should lift all people up, not just you and me, but all people. We ARE better than that. Or at least we should be. I don't care what your political beliefs are. This podcast supports all humans as individuals. As all people deserve a chance to be heard. If you don't like that, once again, I implore you to stop listening. Take your HATE elsewhere. So as the holiday season approaches. I hope you will give thanks to those who celebrate our enduring love for the diversity of Celtic culture through music. I wish you many all holiday blessings.

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 Beth Hlabse emailed photos: "Hi, Marc, I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for another wonderful podcast (412). Thanks to you, I discovered Heather Dale and I was very happy to hear her once again on you ‘cast. I’ve attached some photos of what I do while listening to the Irish and Celtic Music Podcast. I’ve been cross-stitching since I was 12 (more years ago than I want to say) and I’ve found that listening to your podcast has kept me going on my more difficult projects. Keep up the good work and much joy, peace and happiness in your new home!" Wing L Mui emailed: "Hi Marc,I first started listening to your podcast in... 2006? 2007? A very long time ago, that's for sure. I drifted away when I left school and life got busy. But a week ago I realized that Spotify carries your podcast and began listening again. Now I have several hundred back episodes to go back to and I am very much looking forward to it! That's not why I'm writing though. I just heard you address the complaint in your latest episode. Well, I'm a trans woman of East Asian descend and honestly not only do I not see very many folks like me performing Irish and Celtic music, it's hard for me to find other folks like me in the audience too. I'm thinking back to the last time Solas was in town for a bluegrass festival: the room was packed but pretty much every person was white. Except for me and the guy selling drinks in the back, I guess. So I really want to thank you not only for introducing me to a wide variety of amazing music by a whole bunch of wonderful people around the world, but for standing up and making a safe space for folks who don't necessarily resemble what some people think fans of Irish and Celtic music should be. Thank you so much for your work, and your wonderful podcast!" Matthew Means emailed: "Hi Marc, I've been a supporter for a number of years, first as a listener and then pledging to your Patreon, but never taken the time to let you know why I make that decision every month. Why now? Well, I suppose the world has been getting a little darker by the hour since I first found the podcast, but I've always been able to rely on your efforts to add a touch of something that's just purely positive and emotionally rewarding to my life on a regular basis. Especially as nearly every media channel turns into a profit-driven minefield of negativity, I can say without reservation that I want to live in a world where the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast exists, a forum where great music and equality are the only things that you'll find when you dig deeper. Does that sound overly dramatic? Well, maybe it is, but there are so few things I can say that about these days -- which is perhaps the far more dramatic conclusion. Anyway, thanks for your hard work and hope to catch you on the road someday. Also, the Don't Go Drinking With Hobbits album is a masterpiece." Will emailed: "Marc thanks such an outstanding podaost that raises the bar with each episode... after years and years of just listening to your podcast, I just turned around and made some purchases all thanks to your podcast. I purchased every album of Wicket Tinkers, Stubby shillelaghs, and album from the bedlam bards and of course your firefly drinking songs album. keep up the outstanding work, and keep raising that bar... wishing you the best from Japan, thanks," Marti Meyers emailed a photo from Gainsville, FL: "Catching up on episodes and listening to #407. I'm sitting before my neuroanatomy class and color coding spinal tracts. Grad student life! I hope your move went smoothly. The only thing harder than moving is house hunting!" Amber from Buffalo emailed on Facebook: "I found your podcast by chance sometime last year. I love the energy of your show, your support of the diverse culture of celtic music, and the acknowledgment of all of the lesser known artists out there. Very recently, i have lost a friend to a terrible accident. he was a lovely human being who I can only describe as 'Wholesome'- he quite literally helped build much of my community, and had a very gentle hand with creatures. He introduced me to a plethora of celtic drinking songs/ sailing songs, something he quite enjoyed as he spent much of his time in Alaska working for fishing boats and various wildlife organizations. I don't know if he ever got around to hearing your podcast, but i am sure he would have enjoyed you very much. Would it be possible to request a cover of 'Mingulay' to be played on one of your upcoming shows? It is my favorite and very much reminds me of him." #celticmusic #irishmusic #irishcelticmusic #celticmusicnews #equality #drinkingsongs

As part of my now, nearly 50 year journey of recovery, I have recorded a CD of folk music from Cornwall and around the UK, alongside a number of other Newlyn and Penzance-based folk musicians. The CD is called "The Long and the Short of It" and every penny from the CD sales is being donated to the amazing Aurora Foundation for People Abused in Childhood. I am wondering whether you would be interested in featuring the CD and supporting this really important cause." Murphy emailed photos: "Good evening! (Or at least where I am right now) Was just finishing up #427 and I gotta say I absolutely adored it. Been a year I think since I last wrote to the podcast. Either way, thought you might be interested on what I'm doing while listening to your podcast. It's not that good so far but I've been working on carving a spoon in my Native Art Studio class. It's very much a work in progress right now because I've never done this before. I'm kinda proud of it though! (Sorry 'bout the camera angles, they came out funny ) Thank you so much for keeping this show alive and thriving with beautiful music!!" Margaret Zavala emailed on Facebook: "Hi finally I can listen to my favorite music,any where I go. Just one question are you doing music for tartan week in NEW YORK. The Parade is April 6?" Michael Finaly emailed on Facebook: "Hi Marc, so I've been trying to plan a trip to the UK and Ireland for my daughter and I, but I'm a bit worried about how Brexit is going to work out over there. But this show helps to keep my hopes up that I'll be able to show my little girl where her grandfather grew up, and get to really understand the centuries long story of her family. But in the mean time, come to Memphis, we have great food, music, and it is the home of The King, just saying... Keep up the good work." William Carter emailed photos: "Listening while taking down drape out of a ceiling after a wedding. The song “An Buachillin Ban” by Bellow Bridge moved me to tears. Thank you for this podcast!" Barry emailed on Facebook: "Marc, You asked for feedback, so here's some - Please, keep your SJW views out of the music podcast. Make it a sacred place just for the music. It's about Celtic music and the culture. NOTHING else. PLEASE!" Thanks Barry. But my quick response is no. First off, if someone attacks my friend, as well as a guest host of this podcast, I will defend them. That's all there is to it. But it seems you did not listen to my SJW rant. That's what this podcast is about. If we do not defend our Celtic culture in ALL of its diversity, we will lose it. I will defend the women of Celtic music. I will defend the different shapes and colors of Celtic music. I might not spend all my time talking about it. But it will be here. And again. If you don't like that, if that's not for you, that's fine. I respectfully suggest you not listen. Because THIS is a part of what Celtic culture is all about. You can take it or leave it. I will not compromise my defense of Celtic music and culture when it comes to diversity. So again, if you don't support the social justice of the Celts, then I wish you all the best.

I’ve discovered so many new songs and artists, and I look forward to each new episode. Your podcast has now become the soundtrack to my sewing. It’s a lovely addition to my hobby, and makes my weekend afternoons drafting patterns, pinning fabrics, and sewing seams even more enjoyable. I also listen to your instrumental episodes while doing my physics homework. Thanks so much for creating this podcast!" Debra VanTuyll emailed: "Hi Mark --I was just listening to your podcast while I work on a research grant. Pictures would be way too dull to share. However, I heard you mention not knowing of any Irish bands in Atlanta. I'm sure you know John Maschinot. He has a group that plays some. Then, there's the Atlanta Junior Irish Ceili Band that Katherine Irwin Thomas runs. Over in Augusta, you've got de Ceádaoin, which is also more of a ceili band. We do sessions twice a month, once at each of the two breweries here (come join us if you're in this area. We're at Riverwatch Brewery the last Friday of the month and Savannah River the middle Wednesday of the month) and occasional gigs. We're presently working on a Christmas CD that will feature some little-known Christmas jigs and reels as well as some better known carols. We'll send you a copy when it's out. Also, Lillie Morris has a number of children violin students, and they play occasionally in Harlem. At any rate, my main reason for writing was to let you know that the Irish music scene may be nano-sized in Georgia, but there are a few of us fighting the good fight out here in the hinterlands! Best wishes from east Georgia!" Ed Stoffer responded to a Celtic Music Magazine email: "Hey Marc, Yes I did get all the music downloads. Thanks so much, I've listened to most of them and they are great. I've been listening for a while now, but sure which episode I started on but for at least a couple of years. Thank you for taking the time to produce the podcast. I'm still relatively new to Irish and celtic music, but for the past 6/7 years my wife and I have been regulars at the Iowa Irish fest here in Waterloo Iowa. Some of our favorite artist are Scythian, The Screaming Orphans, Seo Linn, The Gothard Sisters, Gaelic Storm, The Langers Ball, Realta, and JigJam. Thanks again for all the work you do to put the program together."

Simon Dillon emailed a photo: "Hello Marc. Although over month ago, this photo shows me driving back from Canberra to my home town Bendigo (700km) while listening to your podcast.   Myself and my friend, and fellow musician, Keven McCarthy had just spent the Easter long weekend at the Australian National Folk Festival presenting “Songs From The Australian Tradition” session on each day of the festival.  Australia has many traditional songs. Many of these songs use traditional Irish melodies or are even parodies of traditional Irish songs. The Nation Folk Festival was one of 3 festivals the Kevin and I attended in South Eastern Australia over 17 days around Easter.  We started at the Lake Cullulleraine Music Festival, then the National Folk Festival and ended up at the Koroit Irish Festival. By the time I arrived back home, we had covered 2800 km and listened to many Irish and Celtic Music Podcasts, the quintessential road trip podcast.

Conor Coll emailed: "Hey Marc, Just replying to let you know I received the music you sent and I am currently listening to them, still trying to decide between my favourite! As an Irish man I have been hearing Celtic music all my life and it takes me back to a lovely atmosphere when I listen to these tracks. Recently, I have been following a band which I had done a little camera work with in the past, The Ronan Gallagher Band. They are very talented and are from the region I come from, so I am a big fan of their music. They are what inspired me to look for more traditional music which lead me to this newsletter."

You moved to New Orleans just as I moved from there to the Mississippi gulf coast. And now you are in my old stomping grounds of Atlanta. My family is moving from the Mississippi gulf coast to the eastern most  city in North America (St John's NL) so my wife can get her PhD in analytical chemistry. (I know you understand about moving to support your wife) We will be driving there mid December (all 54 hours of it).  Apart from episode 421 the long drive - that's an understatement - we would like to have a few  CDs to pass the time on the road. I know there is a large Celtic music scene up there. Do you know of any St John's or Newfoundland Celtic artists that we could buy to support and listen to on the way there? Thanks muchly, P.S. I am an aspiring writer and your podcasts have inspired several stories (now if I could just get published) Txs again. Keep the Celtic light burning, in all its colors" Marshall Blosser emailed: "Marc, I have enjoyed your podcast for over 12 years. The variety of music you bring to this show never fails to inspire and amaze me. The fact that you follow the roots of the music and the tendrils of its influence show just how connected the world is and how music is one of those things that can unite everyone. You understand and respect that musically there is no one Celtic musical voice. But rather that it is a rich and varied chorus of voices that make up that sound. I applaud the fact that you are seeking musicians and tunes for a Celtic LGBTQIA+ Pride special next year. The fact that you stand for the diversity that makes this music so touching and valuable is wonderful and so needed everywhere. Peace and may you never lose your laughter, your joy or your autoharp Marshall Blosser" 38:08 - "Keys to the Castle" by Kellswater Bridge from The Proof Is in the Pudding 42:32 - "Hail to the Autumn" by Captain John Stout from Love Abides 46:35 - James Cope emailed: "Hi Marc,Your ebook is a wonderful gift, thank you. I see the changes in the music business, some beneficial, some not so much. Your ideas and knowledge help me as a long time, and older generation musician “unpaid Professional” (mostly) to find where I can land and have the best impact on the art form. Being upbeat in these changing times is a choice and you are an inspiration. As a friend of mine once said, “Damn! Jim you have made something from nothing!” So…. Damn Marc!! you have made something from nothing. Thanks again." Melinda emailed: "Marc, I have subscribed to the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast - I am still listening to shows from years ago, which was where you played the Joss song, and the "Don't Drink with Hobbits" song, which I LOVE!  Shared it with my son who just cracked up with me. We are in El Paso - as far West as you can get!  Have not been to any of the festivals in Texas, but go to Phoenix each year to enjoy the Ren Fest there.  Have been to the Ren Fest in Bonner Springs, KS, in MD (think they shut that one down, but it was huge and wonderful!), and AZ.  Actually, I am still listening to your podcasts when you still lived in Austin, so didn't know that's not where you lived now :) Would love to see you live.  Will have to make sure to listen to the more up to date podcasts to get your latest events - or check your website. Keep up the great work!

For ages my wife and I aspired to visit Australia and New Zealand. Being two unabashed geeks, we could not make a trip Down Under without dropping in for a tour of Hobbiton. What an amazing day it was conjuring up the feeling that, at any moment, Sam, Frodo or Bilbo might emerge to challenge all of us interlopers in The Shire. While that particular encounter didn’t happen, I did get to talk up the podcast to fellow tourists plus our guide in response to their questions regarding my catchy and quite fetching t-shirt. Hopefully, you’ll pick up a few new worldly fans as a result. I’ve been a devoted listener to the podcast for many years and credit multiple episodes for enriching and expanding my collection of Celtic music. At last count, some 15 artists have joined my growing mix, which all came about only because you featured them in an episode after they submitted their hopes, ambitions and livelihood for consideration. Thanks to you and all the incredible indie Celtic artists for providing us a way to connect and support what we love. In closing, here’s an idea to ponder. What about a future Celtic Invasion Vacation to New Zealand? After all, Dunedin in the South Island has a mighty strong Scottish heritage and the Celtic spirit is alive and well I hear. Not to mention Hobbiton beckoning away on the North Island. A bit ambitious perhaps but it would be up there in the Trip of a Lifetime category, which I can definitely vouch for. My best to you, your family and all the fans in the 2019 new year. Sláinte!

This time of year, I especially appreciate holiday music that is different (and better) than what I'm forced to hear in public. Today, I am cleaning the house ahead of company, and enjoying the music and a very thematic beer, pic attached. I wish I could mail you some... maybe it's available in your area? I highly recommend this beer. I try to wear my podcast shirt so I can spread the word!

Regarding voting, although all your featured musicians are wonderful, when asked to vote for a specific episode's featured musician, perhaps asking to vote for that particular/featured song would be more appropriate? By that I mean, I have gone back & searched the bands featured but found 2 or 3 songs as my personal favourites. Absolutely no offence to the great bands but I wouldn't go as far as voting them as my favourite bands, rather songs :) Also, what do you think about either as the final episode of the year or the first episode of the year, featuring the top rated songs of the year, voted by the listeners?

Thank you so much!  I use them on my running playlist. I have your podcast to thank for where I am today. My wife’s family is Scottish and Irish. I am of German heritage. After attending several St. Patrick’s Day celebrations with them, I really started to listen to the music. I stumbled upon your podcast shortly thereafter. I was a casual listener for a number of years. After the economic collapse of 2008, I found myself without a job. I went back to school to become a nurse and found that I needed to learn how to speed read in order to keep up with the assignments. I used the jigs and reels in your podcast to help keep me on tempo and keep my speed up. Fast forward several years later.... My daughter wanted to take dance lessons. My mother in law told her that if we enrolled her in Irish or Highland Dance she would pay for lessons. My daughter settled on Highland Dance and we found a group that offered lessons. It was a pipe and drum band with a dance troop. They also offered bagpipe lessons for free. After listening to your podcast for several years, my love for the music had grown so much that I jumped on the opportunity to learn the bagpipes. I now have become an active member of the band, performing for gigs and the competition team, but I also have branched out on my own as a solo piper. I look forward to your podcast every week. Please keep up the great work and we’ll keep listening!” 1:25:14 - "Love Is Ever the Strongest Spell" by The Round Table from Tales from the Turning Leaf 1:29:44 - "Jiggy Biddy's Slur Horn" by Tartanic from Uncharted 1:32:46 - Gerry Corr emailed a video: "Marc, Had a great evening listening to your Podcasts…….sitting on the deck on a cool, late summer evening enjoying sweet Uisce Beatha" GERRY CORR VIDEO Mike Coombs emailed a photo: "Dear Marc, I really love your podcasts!

I also play in a barn dance band and compose mostly acoustic guitar based instrumental music.

I'm a brasilian biologist, musician and flute player. I love your Podcasts, and I always listen to you, mainly while working/studying. I've started with the Celtic music because of a brasilian band called Tuatha de Danann. I'd like to indicate them for you. I just listened to the "Summer Road Trip #361", and I heard a Brasilian band, Braia! They have almost the same musicians of the band I mentioned. Here follows some other names I remembered, mainly with flute or Whistles on their songs: Kernunna (BR), Tuatha de Danann (BR) , Braia (BR) , Flook, Luar na Lubre, MuteFish, Thanks for your very nice mood, always, and for  your inspiration!

Your comments in episode 422, on diversity and “reaching out” and all that, were absolutely spot-on, sir.  Beautifully said. To anyone (like your emailer Mark R.) who says 'Well, we’re of differing politics—you believe in diversity and full access, I believe otherwise—and each of our views are equally valid'—I want to scream.  But you handled it with much more aplomb.  I just want to yell about slavery and women’s suffrage and flat-earthers, and about how not all views are equal, especially those that side with the past and 'old ways' and cultural voodoo and not with the future and science and love.  Thank you for your well-handled and elegant words, Marc.

Email a voicemail message to celticpodcast@gmail.com Jacob Kenner emailed a photo: "Marc, I was listening to #427 while cleaning up the donkey pen when you asked us to share what we do while listening. I realized I almost always save the podcast for when I have a farm chore or a building project. I think it helps me relax and keep going. This is Violet (left) and Franklin (right), rescued donkeys we have in north central Washington State in the Okanogan highlands. Thanks for letting me share Celtic music with my donkey friends." Bryan MacAvoy emailed: "I was teleworking, recovering from ACL surgery, and listening to the pod (from 9/12), and practically dropped my laptop on the floor and re-injured myself jumping to see what that sound was: BassPipes, Orchestral Pipestep, that’s what. LOVE IT. I quickly went over to Amazon music to find what they had there (a few more), and am listening. I would not have thought myself a fan of Celtic Trad/ Dubstep Fusion, but here we are! Would love an episode dedicated to Gaelic Trad sounds in modern dance/ hip hop/ pop. I know that’s a tight niche, but if anyone is up to it, it’s you!" Beth Hlabse emailed photos: “Hi, Marc,I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for another wonderful podcast (412). Thanks to you, I discovered Heather Dale and I was very happy to hear her once again on you ‘cast. I’ve attached some photos of what I do while listening to the Irish and Celtic Music Podcast. I’ve been cross-stitching since I was 12 (more years ago than I want to say) and I’ve found that listening to your podcast has kept me going on my more difficult projects. Keep up the good work and much joy, peace and happiness in your new home!"    Aaron Adair emailed: "Hi, Marc--I've been a LONG time listener and recent supporter through Patreon and have loved the music you've played over the years. It has made me yearn for my home country although until now I've never been. Thanks to you and your terrific podcast, I'm currently waiting to take off for Dublin, Adare, Galway, and points in between for my very first trip home. Listening to the Ramblin' Irishman episode is the perfect episode to prepare me for my adventure. Thanks for all you do to encourage, educate, and support artists and listeners about the greatness of Celtic music. Blessings to you and your family. " Robyn emailed: "Hi Marc, I, of course, love your podcast. Recently the love of my life, my husband, died. And I wanted to share with you how we listened to your podcast. I would come home from work and my dogs (3) and my husband would jump in the car and we'd go for a ride. It was a time with no phone, no distractions, just connecting with each other and see how each other's day went. Often we'd be listening to your podcast, singing along or just enjoying the music. Okay so not so unusual - one of our favorites is Loch Lomand. And now that he's gone ughhh brings me to tears each time I hear it but I can't stop playing it. I had missed some podcasts due to his illness, but when I listened to #407 oh my. Sobbing in my car, and remembering loving, great times. Thank-you for adding to the connection to life and love you have brought me. And now I have become a patron in honor of my husband, John. Slainte."   #celticwomen #irishmusic #celticmusic

The album has, of course, been getting play already thanks to the digital version. In traditional Bards style, it's such a fun album.  So good to have you and Andrew working together again. While I'm here, I wanted to express how much I appreciate your support of women in Celtic music.  I'd meant to chime in earlier. Better late than never. In any case, I heard some feedback from one listener saying they were buying albums from everyone on the podcast to do their part.  I've been doing the same, and I'm sure others have been as well. I admire your willingness to double down on this across all of your platforms. There's more than enough room for any Celtic musician on the stage without unnecessary divisions.  It's the sort of thing that makes me proud to back your efforts, musical and otherwise." Jamie Annear-Feyrer emailed a photo: "Listened to episodes 422 and 421 on the way to Irish Fest in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It definitely got me in the spirit! Thanks for all the work you do- I’ve been listening for many years and love the diversity of all the great Celtic music the show has exposed me to.

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
