CELTIC PODCAST NEWS

The Irish & Celtic Music Podcast is sponsoring the Middle Tennessee Highland Games this year. Right now, this festival is going. They won’t make a decision whether to stay open or not until June. So I did a Skype interview with Richard to talk about the festival.

TRAVEL WITH CELTIC INVASION VACATIONS
Every year, I take a small group of Celtic music fans on the relaxing adventure of a lifetime. We don't see everything. Instead, we stay in one area. We get to know the region through its culture, history, and legends. You can join us with an auditory and visual adventure through podcasts and videos. Learn more about the invasion at http://celticinvasion.com/

I WANT YOUR FEEDBACK

Tina Manbeck emailed: "Marc, I host a music radio show and found your podcast while searching for holiday song ideas for my show.  Appreciated the downloads and have played them, including you, on several of my shows.  Thank you.

I also am a board member of the Celtic Music Association, which has been bringing four or five concerts to Des Moines per year since 1992. Our current season includes Doolin’, Old Blind Dogs, Calan, High Time, and just this last weekend, La Vent du Nord.

I listen to your podcasts, Andy Donnelly on CKUA, and Thistle Radio.  Any other suggestions?"

Patrick van dr Moezel emailed audio feedback.

Alied Pérez Martínez emailed some videos: "Cheers Marc: I'm a frequent listener of your podcast and just want to share with you a live session I recorded last January in Inverness, Scotland[1]. I was there for Christmas and New Year visiting my brother and we went to Liverpool, Belfast, Glasgow and Inverness. You might say this was my own Celtic Invasion :-).

We were in a Hootananny at Inverness for dinner when the musicians began to arrive, and then we couldn't leave until it closed. There I also upped my English to "Drunken Glaswegian" Level :-D (English is not my mother language)

Feel free to use any of the videos; it's all public. The musicians names are in the video descriptions. And if you could give me a hand with the tune titles, I would be much appreciated. Slàinte"

Deanna Garrison emailed: "Hi! My sister and I love listening to the podcast. We're both American and while I'm still here, she's over in Norway working on her PhD. She likes to listen to the podcast while working or studying.

I've been listening to the show when I'm at work. Right now I'm working on inventory data entry (transferring products from the store to the website and logging all that)

I listen to at least one episode whenever I'm at work and it always makes my day better. Love the show, love the music,  and I appreciate getting able to find out about so many great bands! I'll support you all once my next paycheck comes in. Best, Deanna (and Laura the Norwegian)"
