Rob emailed Greetings from the Snowy North: "Good day Celt Father, I just to want to say thank you for the amazing musical offerings, it makes shoveling the winter snow a much more pleasant experience, and to ask for a favor. After replacing my phone some apps did not make the transfer successfully. Since than I have a song stuck in my head that I cannot track down and I swear that it was from an episode of the podcast. I did some digging and matched up the lyrics to "The Barroom Girls" by Gillian Welch but I can not find the version that played on the podcast. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you again for a wonderful podcast and thank you again for the motivational snow shoveling music." Daphne Arthur of the Homespun Ceilidh Band sent holiday greetings last month: "I’ve been saving up all the Christmas - themed episodes of music podcasts until the actual start of Christmastide, so I’ll have them to listen to during the twelve days, so on the first day of Christmas, I was listening to #586 while waiting for my after - Christmas - dinner tea to steep, and making sure Guillaume didn’t accidentally burn his tail on my teeny tiny, improvised Advent wreath.  Enjoying the music, as always! Merry Christmas to you and yours!" Leti and Rodolfo emailed: "The best time to listen to Celtic music is ...during breakfast! Hi Marc, This is Leti and Rodolfo from Madrid, Spain. We always listen to your podcasts while we have our banana and oats pancake breakfast on weekends. It has become a kind of a ritual and we really enjoy the music and the food before going out for a walk in the country. Keep up the good work. Thanks a million!"

I haven’t checked out either of them but they both seem to be widely used. I was listening to show 581 and someone asked about books for Celtic Guitar.   I’m having a catch up day, this is the third podcast for the day (I’m up to date again). I also remembered to email one of the bands We Banjo 3 and tell them how I first heard them here and now I follow them on Soundcloud.  I love their sound.  The song Hummingbird is superb. Thanks as always for your fabulous show.  Is there any way I can make a one off contribution?  I went to patreon but I don’t want to make a weekly subscription.  I’d rather just make a one - off contribution each year.  Is that possible? Cheers Marc, have an awesome weekend."

Thanks for an awesome way to connect. I'm in the west Texas desert but recently found out that a fair portion of my genes come from the greater Dublin and greater London areas. Also a smattering of lower Saxony . My first knowing about Celtic music was when a highschool girlfriend and her mom took me to the Gasoline Alley pub here in town to listen to Linda Grubb's St Paddy's day show. Let me bring the storyteller to heel, and get to my point. My proposal for the name for the instrumental segment or instrumental only shows would be. "Celtic Reconnect" I'm not a patron yet, but those episodes are the second reason I want to make that happen. I have a small group of co - workers and family with whom I share individual episodes. It been a great way to keep communication open when there is nothing that "needs" to be said. Thanks."

Sadly, I have no pictures to show but some good news to share I've been researching my family history and can proudly say that I've been finding lots of Irish, Scottish and even Welsh ancestry. I have no problem sharing the names -  - Moon, Dunseath, Lowrie, Thomson, Dunn, etc. So your show helps me connect, in a way, to family long lost physically but coming to me in a spiritual and emotional way. Thanks and keep up the great work! " John Thompson wrote about episode #581: "Hey Marc, Just listened to the Irish & Celtic Music podcast episode 581 and I had a question. One of the last tracks was by Bren Holmes  -  -  a song called SOS. This is a cover song originally written and performed by the Swedish pop group ABBA around 1975 (yeah, I'm that old). I thought you had a policy about not playing covers as they're not "pod safe". It's a great song and I've heard MANY great covers performed at various festivals by various bands. It would be fantastic if you could play more but don't want you to get into any kind of trouble. I'm not quite sure how that works. If you could explain it briefly for your listeners maybe it would clear up the confusion." George Mears emailed: "Marc, I've been a listener since the early days and a patron for several years. The podcast has been my companion for road trips, yard work, construction projects, and career changes; also raising two sons and all the changes 17 years brings. I've written a few times, including in 2018 when my sister and I had our own Celtic Invasion of Scotland after the death of our parents, which you shared with my fellow listeners, thank you. I took a deep stroll through the podcast archive recently, going back to selected episodes through the years. While the music has always been wonderful, it was insightful to hear the difference in your voice, energy, and personal topics from those days. Your podcast has been a shared experience for we, the listeners. Thank you for the virtual weekly meet - up that has brought so much joy. I'll be among your patrons for the next 17 years. Slainte!"

Email a voicemail message to celticpodcast@gmail.com Antje Wilke wrote from Germany last year: "this is now the test of whether you really answer personally (even to a weird German who is nothing but an advanced English learner who stumbled across and fell in love with the Irish language and music while searching for English listening fodder on the internet). In the middle of 2019, I got an Irish neighbor who didn't speak a single word of German and asked me for assistance all the time. Luckily, I came across the right online English teacher on Instagram who brought me out of my shell...  I soon realized that I love the English from the south of Ireland the most. It was only a matter of time that I also got in touch with Irish culture and tradition (including the language and music). I even started learning Irish and playing the bodhrán. I'm still a beginner in both (maybe my Irish is already a little better than the drumming, but I only started in November). And since I wanted to find music other than my teacher's to play along with, I googled around. And that's how I stumbled across your podcast. Long story short, I've been fascinated by Celtic music, but even more so since I started learning Irish. I wish one day I could sing some traditional songs in Irish. The Sean Nós singing is so beautiful, too. Wish you a wonderful Christmas wherever you are and keep on making music and all the stuff around it. Nollaig Shona agus slán go fóill!”

Celtic Music Stories #585

2022-12-1502:07:02

Listen to the audio liner notes from several musicians on the Irish & Celtic music Podcast #585. Willowgreen, Poitin, Amelia Hogan, Kinnfolk, Boston Blackthorne, Téada, Barrenhart, Altan, Brad Tuck, Lúnasa, Sue Spencer, Marc Gunn, Enda Reilly, The Chivalrous Crickets GET CELTIC MUSIC NEWS IN YOUR INBOX The Celtic Music Magazine is a quick and easy way to plug yourself into more great Celtic culture. Subscribe and get 34 Celtic MP3s for Free. THIS WEEK IN CELTIC MUSIC 0:06 - WELCOME 1:16 - WILLOWGREEN - A PIRATE HIDEOUT Willowgreen performs traditional, contemporary and original music from Ireland, Newfoundland, Scotland, Canada, U.S.A. and the rest of the Celtic music world. Their signature vocal style combined with instrumentation including harp, hammered dulcimer, bodhrán, guitars, button accordion, whistles and mandolin appeals to audiences of all ages. Jim Ofsthun bio: Jim is an original member of Willowgreen, and a talented vocalist and instrumentalist with international performances on Irish bodhrán, guitar, button accordion, and whistles. He is also a member of McInnis' Kitchen, and of Eira. He has family connections to the music through Ireland and Newfoundland, and is considered one of the top producers in Irish music in the Midwest. 4:37 - Willowgreen “Crocker’s Cove Reel” from Willowgreen 7:34 - POITIN Poitín are an award-winning traditional Celtic band from Pilsen in the Czech Republic. They explore all forms of Celtic music but are firmly grounded in the pub session tradition and like nothing better than sitting round a table in the corner of a cosy pub playing old favourites about tarry sailors, merry maids and drunken nights. Poitín have performed at festivals across Europe in Italy, France, Poland, Denmark, Germany and the Czech Republic. As the album says, it's 'one for the road', to go with you and keep you company in your car or on your bike, and this Celtic world music will take you from Ireland to Argentina, from England to Egypt, from Brittany to the Czech Republic and beyond. 15:44 - Poitin “Claudy Banks” from One For the Road 17:58 - AMELIA HOGAN - TAKING FLIGHT Amelia Hogan is an impeccably authentic singer of Celtic music and her heart comes through in honeyed tones on Irish, Scottish, British, and American styled vocals. She sings in the Irish music tradition of Sean-Nós, or “old style” as well as accompanied. Amelia also plays bodhran and a small 22 string Welsh lap harp, and tours internationally to global acclaim. Amelia Hogan sings both traditional and contemporary folk music with lilting graces and subtlety. She’ll weave a mysterious old magic that takes the listener out of time and place. She transports audiences with haunting melodies, holding them close, and stirs ancient spirits with an evocative storytelling presence. 24:07 -  Amelia Hogan “Taking Flight” from Taking Flight 26:19 - FEEDBACK 28:24 - KINNFOLK Josh and Julie Kinn weave bouzouki, bodhran, and smooth vocal harmonies in their Celtic folk music from the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Kinnfolk have played at festivals and listening rooms throughout Virginia and beyond. In 2021, Kinnfolk was one of 10 bands--representing 10 countries from across the globe--selected to be part of the inaugural Robinson Emerging Artist Showcase hosted by the Goderich Celtic Roots Festival. As their notoriety has expanded worldwide, their music has been featured on podcasts and radio programs across the globe. 39:51 - Kinnfolk “The Hat Song” from The Knotted Circle 45:15 - BOSTON BLACKTHORNE - FISHING Boston Blackthorne has been performing with the same core members for over 25 years. Their sound is a unique blend of traditional Celtic and Americana in a driving format - more rock than the Clancy Brothers, more folk than the Dropkick Murphys - while sharing some of the traditional repertoires of both. They are proud of their deep songwriting bench - the original songs of Boston Blackthorne have won several national and international songwriting competitions including first place in the International Narrative Songwriting competition and honorable mention in the International Songwriting Competition. The band’s sound is centered around powerful vocal harmonies and lead vocals shared by several of the members.  Between the 5 core members instrumentation includes fiddle, 4&5 string banjo, harmonica, 6&12 string guitars, mandolin, bouzouki, bass and drums 50:26 - Boston Blackthorne “Fishing over the Lusi” from Single 54:40 - ALTAN - FAVORITE SONG OF MAIRÉAD NÍ MHAONAIGH You can hear more stories by the Mairead Ni Mhaonaigh on show #580. Altan are an Irish folk music band formed in County Donegal in 1987 by lead vocalist Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh and her husband Frankie Kennedy. The group were primarily influenced by traditional Irish language songs from Donegal and have sold over a million records. The group were the first traditional Irish group to be signed to a major label when they signed with Virgin Records in 1994. The group has collaborated with Dolly Parton, Enya, The Chieftains, Bonnie Raitt, Alison Krauss, and many others. 57:29 - Altan “An Mhaighdean Mhara” from Island Angel 1:00:17 - ARE YOU FOLLOWING THE IRISH & CELTIC MUSIC: BEST OF 2022 PLAYLIST? ATLANTA IRISH DANCE BY BURKE AND CONNOLLY Earlier this year, I wanted to learn more about Irish dance. I contacted one of the co-founders of Atlanta Irish Dance by Burke and Connolly. Emma Burke is a certified Irish dance teacher and internationally certified Irish dance adjudicator, which allows her to judge Irish dance competitions world wide. During her Irish dancing career, she competed all over the world, winning titles throughout.

They have an exciting performance based program run through their 501c3, in which they produce lively crowd-pleasing performances for crowds across Atlanta.  Their dancers and teams are ranked 1st in the Region, 2nd in North America, and among the top 10 in the World. We talked a little about their Feis they do each year and Irish dance costumes. I’ll break that up with some dance tunes. Feis vs Feisana from Atlanta Irish Dance 1:04:11 - Téada “Jigs - The Women of Monaghan / Nancy Hynes’ / Tap the Barrel” from Coiscéim Coiligh / As the Days Brighten 1:08:13 - COSTUMING WITH IRISH DANCE 1:14:31 - Barrenhart “Haste To The Wedding/Drowsy Maggie/Harvest Home” from Celtic Grass 1:16:10 - THANK YOU PATRONS OF THE PODCAST 1:17:10 - BRAD TUCK - THE RED VIOLIN Born in Hant's Harbour, Newfoundland, Brad developed a love for music early in his life.

Brad was nominated for Traditional Artist of the Year at the 2018 & 2022 MusicNL Awards, and has released three full length albums, one EP and two Christmas singles. 1:20:14 - Brad Tuck “The Red Violin” from Stages Colin Farrell of Lunasa told a story back in show #579. 1:25:15 - LUNASA - THREE REELS Lúnasa is a traditional Irish music group, named after Lughnasadh, an ancient harvest festival. They tour and perform internationally, and have recorded a number of albums of both traditional and contemporary Irish instrumental music. 1:27:06 - Lúnasa “Morning Nightcap = McLeod's Farewell/Morning Nightcap/The Malbay Shuffle” from The Story So Far 1:31:17 - SUE SPENCER - MUSIC UNDER THE STARS Sue grew up singing Newfoundland and Irish folk songs with her family, and comes by her Irish roots through Newfoundland.  Her driving guitar style and signature smile will lift your spirits.  Sue has been nominated multiple times for the Newfoundland and Labrador Arts Council Hall of Honour Award.  She also performs internationally as part of Willowgreen and McInnis' Kitchen. 1:34:43 - Sue Spencer “Tickle Cove Pond” from North Shore 1:38:59 - CELTIC INVASION VACATIONS 1:39:32 - MARC GUNN John Sharkey White II requested my version of “Peggy Gordon” in the last episode of the podcast. Obviously, I am the host of this podcast. But I’m gonna read my current bio on my website like I’ve done with others. Marc Gunn is a Rhythm & Folk songwriter who fuses Irish and Scottish folk songs with pop culture. One brewery called it Sci F’Irish music. His musical weapon of choice is the autoharp. He breathes acoustic Rock and Roll into this folk instrument and adds a bellowing taste of rhythm & blues. Gunn found musical inspiration performing Irish drinking songs. He learned the art of performing at Renaissance faires and from his childhood idol, Elvis Presley, who said, “You've got to put on a show to draw a crowd.” His concerts are fun filled with sing along songs that get the audience's feet tapping. And now for my song… I first heard the song “Peggy Gordon” from a cassette of Irish Drinking Songs I found at Half-Price Books in Austin, Texas. I learned most of my early Irish song repertoire from that album, songs like “Whiskey in the Jar”, “Big Strong Man, “Wild Rover”, “Bog Down in the Valley” and lots more. Their version of “Peggy Gordon” was short, but memorable. I played it on and off for many years. I remember singing it at a pub in Switzerland when I met Heidi and Stef of the Celtic band Bow Triplets. In July 2009, I met my future wife, Gwen, while touring in Virginia. We had this whirlwind romance and began talking on the phone every day and went to see each other as much as possible even while I was out on tour. I was completely mesmerized by her. A few weeks later, I was back in Austin. I was scheduled to record my next studio album with Rich Brotherton. He’s an incredible engineer and had done some brilliant work for Ed Miller and lots of top-notch artists in Texas. I was having trouble singing the song. I was pitchy and my voice lacked any real emotion. The lyrics have this great feeling of love and longin

The ICM Podcast has introduced me to many bands and individual musicians I probably would never have discovered otherwise, and some are definite new favorites. I also appreciate that the podcast is released with chapter markers and time stamps within the notes. This makes identifying (and replaying) songs very easy."

I have a 15 minute floorpspot at a Folk night at Creswick tonight.  I find listening to your show helps calm my nerves and focus on my musicality.  It’s off to rehearse a few songs for me now.  Enjoy your weekend.

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 Alexander Randall 5th emailed: “Marc: I was delighted to hear the Achendoun set by Chivalrous Crickets. Their handling of the Bonnie Prince Charlie March is the best I have ever heard. It is so energetic that I began to think, "If I were on my death bed, I'd want to hear this. If my hand taps my thigh, then I am still alive, but if not, then I am dead." This got me to thinking what would my "deathbed playlist" include? If I am in hospice and on the verge of death and a band were to come into my room to play music, what would I want on that list? The Chivalrous Crickets playing this Auchendoun set would top the list. St. Anne's Reel would be next. Capricalle playing Argyle Ladies is third... Miller's Maggot All from your podcast!!! I wish I could get a read on the third part of this attached tune. It starts as the humoresque and ends with one of the coolest riffs ever... The liner notes say "An Old Man Comes in and Sits Down" I wish I knew where to find other versions of this... Thank you for reading what your listeners say.” He followed that up with another email: “The Old Man Walks Into The Room And Sits Down’ I found one recording of this by Celtic stone. DId anyone else record this?” Woodland Folk sent pictures of what he described as Eden. See those pictures in the shownotes.

I appreciate you sharing those beautiful photos. And I hope you stay safe in this terrible period of history. Rex Edwards emailed: “Marc. Long time fan and podcast subscriber. You provide the modern and I’m a long time supporter of Alan OLeary and his trad podcast on liveIreland.com which I think has hit hard times.  He has great connections to the old timers.  Don’t know if you’ve heard of him but any visibility you could give him would be great.  He’s always asking to share with friends but that would require me making friends. Your show is a great delight and many thanks.  Rex” Find more about Copperplate.
