ABOUT THE NEW ADS IN THE PUBLIC FEED If you’ve been listening to the show over the last couple of weeks, you will have noticed something new to the show. Ads placed at the beginning and ending of each episode. The show has been published regularly for almost 19 years with very few ads, outside of those for my Celtic Invasion Vacations and Patreon. I’ll be honest. I’m not a huge fan of advertising…or corporations in general. And I’m still deciding whether I’m gonna continue having ads in the show. The fact is that this podcast costs a decent amount to produce as I’ll tell you about later. We’ve built something incredible here. We have a large number of Patrons of the Podcast who support this show each and every week. It’s mind - blowing the amount of support this show gets. But it doesn’t cover all of my expenses. And there’s so much more I’d like to do to reach more Celtic music fans, which requires money. This would be one way to help us grow our podcast. So if you don’t like those ads, please become a Patron of the Podcast, because they are not included in any of the Patreon shows. THANK YOU PATRONS OF THE PODCAST! You are amazing. It is because of your generosity that you get to hear so much great Celtic music each and every week. Your kindness pays for our engineer, graphic designer, Celtic Music Magazine editor, promotion of the podcast, and allows me to buy the music I play here.

It is such a fun weekend." Ryan Weyls emailed some photos: "Hi Marc, I've attached photos from a pair of shows I went to this weekend: Dàimh at the Town Crier in Beacon, NY and Derek Warfield and the Young Wolfe Tones at the Rambling House in the Bronx. The lighting at Rambling House was a bit harsh and didn't agree with my phone, so I've only included two photos. Both bands sounded excellent. I might be checking out the other version of the Wolfe Tones (the one led by Derek's brother) later this week and will send photos if I make it. Thanks for your wonderful podcast.

Ben Doran messaged on Facebook: “When I received the "music only version" of the "The Gaelic Blessing" podcast, I was immediately reminded of one of the most moving arrangements of The Irish Blessing that I have heard  -  - by Bill O'Connor and Larry Theiss on their – "Traditional And Original" recording. I am getting ready to have a day off tomorrow and will  get to chores and baking for the "Wild Hog in the Woods" usual Friday night concert that we host at a neighborhood center here in Madison. While I am mixing and baking, I'll surely/certainly listen to that "Gaelic Blessing" program in its entirety. Thanks!” Ryan S. emailed some photos: "Hi Marc. I love the Celtic Women episodes!! I am currently building trails outside of austin while I listen to the cast.the spring flowers are already out!" Shel O'Toole emailed a photo: "Hi Marc, As I'm listening today I'm promoting the International Women's Day event I organised for the Ballarat and District Irish Association. The all women trio I play with, Skedaddle is performing on the day.   I'm also looking at ways to promote my newly released poetry book Wildsong. I'll be officially launching it at the IWD lunch. I'm loving the Celtic Women special. There's so many fabulous Irish women singers and musicians. Noirin Ni Rian, the sean - ós singer and chanter, Sandra Joyce singer and bodhran player are two amazing teachers I met at the Irish World Music Summer School  - Blas, many years ago.  Niamh Parsons & Delores Keane are firm favourites & I love discovering new  female artists. I'll probably go to a session on St Patrick's day and there's a band playing at one of the Irish pubs in the evening I want to see. Sliánte"

I'm celebrating the early part of St. Patrick's month by volunteering in the Iditarod race in Alaska. I'll be singing Celtic tunes while taking care of the huskies running for 1,049 frozen miles from Anchorage to Nome. I have dual citizenship with the Republic, as my grandparents immigrated from Roscommon, Dublin, and Limerick. Perhaps I can start a sled - dog team representing the Republic somewhere in the future. Best wishes," Ben Doran replied to my feedback request: "Hello Marc; The weather here in Wisconsin today definitely inspires kilt wear. And weather/whether or not it is nearly this nice on St. Patrick's Day weekend, I'll be kilting it up. And singing with the band Ar Ais Aris (a - rash a - reesh)("Back Again") on Saturday in Berwyn, Il; then Sunday, to Galena, Il; then finish up with our two usual gigs for retirement communities in Rockton, Il and Beloit, WI on Monday. I will (yep) probably color my beard in orange and green for Monday. I think among the many new sounds/new music that I've heard from your podcasts, it would be the band, Larkin, that has my fancy (this week, anyway). No, I don't consider myself fickle, just distracted.  Slainte, Marc!!" woodland folk emailed a photo: "heading to the wood for a fire and a practice,can listen then my friend...

I'm now at the year 2016 and I've loved every episode. There is just one problem. When I look up the bands that I loved and that I want to purchase their music, they're gone. There's no website, no Spotify, no YouTube, sometimes I can't even find their CD's used! And it's a shame, because they're good songs and sometimes, take Young Hunting by Serious Kitchen (Which was in your best of the year podcasts more than once) it's the only Celtic rendition of the song on the internet. I managed to buy the last Tig! Album off the internet, but it's looking bad for some of my other favorites. We're losing years of Celtic music, and it's a shame, especially since I know that the members of Serious Kitchen and others are still around. I don't suppose I'm missing a way t

Ben Q emailed: "Hi Marc, I don't think I've ever been asked a direct question on a podcast before! To answer your question about what episode and when it was that Niamh told this story, it was is in show #552: Reel Fairies, and her story starts around the 47:53 mark. It's totally worth a re - listen; she is so funny. Also wow, yep, that episode was almost two years ago. Time flies!" Patrick Rieger sent Some More Irish Pictures: "Hello Marc, A few more photos to share. First up, a few of Terry Griffith, the last few times he was on a stage with an in - person audience at Mullaney's Harp and Fiddle. One is from the 2020 fundraiser for the Pittsburgh Saint Patrick's Day Parade on February 13, 2020, and another is from his gig on February 28, 2020. Within a few weeks, the words Covid and Coronavirus quickly became part of our daily vocabulary, and the shows came to an end for a couple of years. On June 4, 2022, we had a retirement party for Terry. The best part of the night is when he strapped on a guitar and led the packed pub in A Health to the Company. There were tears and cheers for him throughout the evening, but most came during that special song. The last photo is from tonight, January 27, 2024. John McCann on acoustic guitar and Hamish on percussion packed the Harp & Fiddle. Lots of great music and an interactive audience.”

So now I even enjoy it more knowing that it is my history." Aimee Greenfield sent a picture: "Hi Mark, I love to weave and listen to Celtic music. This music has inspired me for the last 30 years while creating! The music is definitely woven into my current project of Turkish Beach Towels. Thanks for the entertainment!"

It took me a moment, but I came up with one that makes me very happy–an exclusive compilation album. Here’s how it works. If we can raise $6000, then I will put together a bonus compilation album. Everyone who supports the campaign at $25+ will get a copy. I’ll also print 100 physical copies of the album on CD. The album will feature 12+ songs and tunes from our Highlight Reels. Basically, I’m gonna contact bands and see if I can license enough tracks for a bonus album. I’ll start with the Celtic Top 20. If I can get enough tracks, I’ll stop there. If I can’t then I will dig into our next most - popular Highlight Reels. Go check out our Kickstarter right now. THANK YOU PATRONS OF THE PODCAST! You are amazing.

Appreciate everything that you do, thanks for continuing to bring us this great music" Ben Q emailed: "Hi Marc, Huge fan with a fun story for you from today: I was changing my daughter’s diaper and singing a little song, in this case "The Parting Glass," to keep us both entertained. A lot of the time she will say “Daddy, stop singing!” which hurts a little but is totally fine, ha ha. But today she said “Dad I want you to sing ‘Down by yon green bushes!’” That’s the first line of a song that I actually learned maybe two years ago from Niamh Parsons’s appearance on your podcast, “Bonnie Woodhall,” and Niamh told a great story to go with it as well, about trying over multiple late - night sessions with her fellow musicians to remember the whole thing. I loved that song as well as her story, and I sing that a lot around my house, but  -  me not sounding much like Niamh when I sing  -  I don’t get a lot of requests around here exactly, and it really tickled me that my kid requested that one. Anyway, please keep up the good work Marc, and if it’s not too late to say so, a very happy New Year to you." Patrick Rieger sent a picture and asked about photo sizes for the podcast: "Thank you. I can set the width at 1200 pixels. The photos are already at 72dpi. Here is a photo of The Craic Show on September 3, 2023, during the opening gate act of the Pittsburgh Renaissance Festival. The Donegal Doggs can be seen seated on the left waiting their turn. I'll keep the photos coming. We'll be attending Great Lakes, Pittsburgh, and Ohio again this year. We planned the dates to attend Ohio in 2024 during Pub SIng this last year."

College homework! 😁  I am a Digital Design student, and I am doing hand drawing homework. Thank you again for this wonderful Podcast! Lots of blessings!" Jeremiah Dønier emailed from Langly, WA: "Hello Marc, I tried signing up for your mailing list but got an error message saying the mailing list is not active. My family and I live on the windswept isle of Whidbey upon the Salish Sea. I stumbled across your app in May after canceling my iTunes subscription and we are loving the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast. A few weeks ago, we enjoyed a couple of hours of the music as we pickled some pints of cucumbers (see attached photo). My love of Celtic music goes back to my family's roots. My dad's kin are mostly from the Swiss Alps and Scandinavia, but my mom's family came from Scotland and Ireland to settle in the Pacific Northwest in the late 1800s. So, I grew up listening to Celtic folk tunes played by my parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles. Then I began listening to a range of Celtic music as a teenager in the mid - 1990s. Of course, I enjoyed the explosion of modern Celtic music during this time with crossovers into New Age and Rock. Many purists deride this as faux Celtic but it didn't matter to me. I like the flitting of flutes, braggadocio of bagpipes, and harmony of harps. One of my favorite memories from back then, was going to an oversold a Colcannon show in Ellensburg, Washington and I was seated on the stage! Since then, I accumulated an eclectic collection of Celtic tunes. During the pandemic I began looking through my older CDs and found "Celtic Legacy A Global Celtic Journey" by the Narada. It features are a number of groups from Ireland, Breton, Wales, and Scotland and the American Celtic diaspora. Then I noticed there a group stands out as bit different and it has become one of my favorites: Milladoiro. They come from northwest Spain which I learned is a region rich but often overlooked in Celtic history. Indeed, research shows many cultural and genetic links between Ireland, Galicia, and the Basques. Anyway, I wanted to say hello, share a bit about me and my love of Celtic music. Throughout the week the podcast is my way to relax. With over 500 episodes it is going to take me awhile to get through them all. I love how you feature so many different types of Celtic music with differrent themes. So, all this leads me to I wonder if you've ever done a show on global Celtic music? Perhaps you could feature some of those groups like Milladoiro that add a bit a different flavor to the Celtic tunes we love. Go raibh míle maith agat! (May you have a thousand good things!)"

I have just finished listening to your Celtic - Christmas episode, and was very impressed with the tunes  -  especially the creative arrangements. These gave me so many ideas for future arrangements with my Celtic Music band, FitzBlarney. We actually began as an ‘Acoustic - Celtic Christmas’ trio, (comprised of myself and my two sisters.) Since then, we have taken on my brother and brother - in - law, and also play non - Christmas, Irish/Celtic music. In fact, this past December, we were asked to play at the Historic Salem ‘House Tour.” In essence, people with historic houses open them up to the public to walk through and see their Christmas displays. Musicians, ( like ourselves, ) set - up and create some Christmassy background music. This year, we were playing in the chapel of St. Peter’s Church, (founded in 1733!) We also did our “Acoustic Brunch,” at O’Neill’s Pub, also in Salem, MA. (I have attached a couple’ pictures for you!) Thank you again for all you do! My commutes sound great now!"

Regarding the proposed whiskey tour, it's one of my bucket list items to go on an Invasion...but teaching makes it difficult. For this proposal, I start back up August 9, 2024.

He wrote a separate post regarding the Celtic Top 20 episode: "I jotted down a couple songs to vote for; but only to find out the songs were from 2012 podcast and not on the list. That’s when I got this epiphany. Why don’t you reopen the best of (prior year). You can call it  -  Best if 2012: For Real This Time. Gwênlyn Glusman emailed a photo: "Hi Marc, I think I first enjoyed the Irish & Celtic Music podcast in late 2005, but I wasn't much into podcasts then and lost track of it... Then on December 26th, 2022 (exactly one year ago) I did some google images search and a logo caught my eye among the results... and I rediscovered your podcast! Been avidly listening since then, and became a patron in January 2023. I typically listen to the podcast while walking in the neighborhood or while commuting (which I do by bus). It always lifts my mood! Also very much enjoying the Celtic Christmas podcast! Here's a photo from Dervish at the Triple Door in Seattle, November 7th. I heard from you they were touring, and very much enjoyed the show, with friends!" Annelise Laughlin emailed: "Hi Marc, I’m enjoying some quiet time and listening to your Celtic Christmas 2023 episode while brainstorming

My name is Kat, I’m an Aussie and I was travelling through Peru for the month of July. You mentioned in a recent episode to send in travel pictures, so here are a few happy snaps from my recent wanderings. I’ve played the flute for many years, with my favourite type of music to play being anything Celtic. However, while in the city of Cusco, I met a Peruvian flute maker and fell in love with the sound of the low Andean meditation flute. I’m already thinking of creative ways I can blend the Andean flute with a Celtic sound. I’d be open to any suggestions! I’ve attached a photo of me playing the Andean flute at Laguna Churup, it was quite a hike to get there but well worth the view. Aside from that, I get very badly motion sick on buses and unfortunately this is the main mode of transport to get around Peru. I found that zoning out by listening to the Irish and Celtic Music Podcast was incredibly helpful on long haul bus rides, so thank you for helping me to prevent motion sickness while travelling! I can’t wait to hear where your next Celtic Invasion takes you. Happy travels,"   Patrick Rieger emailed photos: "Hello Marc, My family and I went to three faires this year, and I wanted to share some photos of the musicians. First up are photos from the Great Lakes Medieval Faire. Then the Pittsburgh Renaissance Festival. And finally, the Ohio Renaissance festival. I'll need to spread them out over two or three emails because of attachment size limits." \   WOODLAND FOLK sent some Fair Winter Morning photos:

I look forward to each episode. My wife and play it in the car and at home. This is John McCann, on stage at Mullaney's Harp & Fiddle Irish Pub in Pittsburgh, on July 15. John is a regular there, and my family, friends and I always enjoy his shows. John is helping to teach our 11 year old son how to properly clap along to what our late friend, Terry Griffith, described, in jest, as annoying Irish audience participation songs. Our son doesn't have the timing down yet but he is getting better. His favorite is Whiskey in the Jar. Casey Deely joined John on stage for a couple of songs that night. There are plenty more shows to go to before Summer ends, so if you want more photos just let me know. And if you ever find yourself in Pittsburgh, my wife and I will gladly introduce you to our favorite irish pub." Sophie Wildman - Gurung emailed: "Dear Marc, I thought I'd write as I've been listening to your podcast this afternoon as I tie up the first plants in my new garden in Somerset (UK) in holes kindly dug by my magical friend Bangles (Woodland Folk). It was Bangles who first introduced me to your podcast shortly after we first met last November. We met when I was then living in Wells and he was busking 'Troika' by Sergei Prokofiev which was the peice of music I had been looking for, to fit in with 'I believe in Father Christmas' by Greg Lake, that I had been working on. Since then we have been jamming together regularly (mainly folk), often at his spot in the woods, sometimes around the folk nights nearby, with him on his fiddle and me on folk harp (22 strings) and singing. You recently played a recording he'd sent in of some crows so I thought I'd send in one he did of me playing a verse from 'Longlife and Sucess to the Farmer' (quite appropriate for this time of year and my afternoons activities although as an advocate of 'no - dig gardening' I'm not a fan of ploughs,) accompanied by probably the same crows  -  warning us if there are walkers nearby. Maybe with a bit more practise we'll get 'I believed in Father Christmas' together to send you, fingers crossed in time for Christmas! Really enjoying your podcasts, thank you. I've been a fan of Celtic music as long as I can remember. My family is originally from Cornwall which may have something to do with it and obviously lots of music for lever harp (which I've been playing since I was 10) is Celtic. So long may the podcast continue, play on! Kind regards" Woodland Folk sent some pictures and wrote: "Heard bout Ur scifirish on band camp.... inspired... One of the first videos I saw online when I had a skylark(not a violin or fiddle but I respect it greatly for teaching me the tentative mechanics),an Irish man with a fiddle on his knee, looking into the camera said "it's love".... Wisdom many could learn from..." woodland folk sent another photo: "I feel I have been out of the loop, looking forward to making up for this by listening back to a few old faithful episodes (man of the house/2 hour fiddle episode and all...) and a few new ones on a 9 hour coach trip to moffat in Scotland,to see my son who is now a strapping, baritone 17 yrs..... Time is an odd thing.... I tentatively tryed a little Fahey in wells yesterday, though simple with few embellishments....in a way the simplest tunes are the hardest to play,Irish washerwoman or silver spear are deceptive and pretty...... I find Music the grandest analogy for life..."

Blah blah blah, another podcast with the obligatory "Patreon this, Patreon that" garbo. I like the music, so I just skip over those parts.

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
