Michael Conners emailed: "Hi Marc; What a surprise, I just signed up with Patreon and the first email I get from you announces the podcast "Celtic in Connemara". We just returned from a ten day tour of the Midlands and Connemara in July. Before we left I investigated learning Gaelic but gave up when I could’t find a good source online. Duolingo sounds good and having a “club” to stay motivated seems a good idea as well. I just signed up. I really enjoy your podcasts. I’ve been listening for a few months, what’s best is that it’s all new music generally. Today I found Jim Sharkey… wonderful all the best. Michael in Lincoln, RI"

Rex Edwards emailed: "Was promoting the podcast at Northern Virginia CCE Festival (sorry for bad pic). This group punches well above weight led by Billy McComiskey, Aoife Scott and Open the Door for Three with Liz Knowles. Billy's son (one of many) has a new group Cover the Buckle that was also great. Keep up the great sounds."

This week, I'm gonna highlight the favorite music of one of my patrons of the podcast. In the spring, I asked Patrons of the Podcast to share some of their favorite songs that were featured in the show. Stephen Bernhardt was one of two who listed a complete 20+ songs that he loved. So I decided to give his songs a special feature like I did with Annie Lorkowski back in episode #319. Some of Annie's songs were on his original list, so he was kind enough to revise it for me. Let's get started.

I shared the rough itinerary for the Celtic Invasion of the Isle of Skye this week. One of my subscribers responded with comments about their own visit there. So I thought I'd ask you. Have you been to the Isle of Skye? What did you love and not love about it? Please share in the comments.

In the meantime, I should have the itinerary online next week.

Robert Eby emailed: "Thanks for your great work on the podcast, Marc! I love how much diversity of Celtic music you put into it. I especially love Celtic rock and you have a special hour just on that with bands I’m mostly unfamiliar with! Ed Miller used to host a Celtic segment on Austin’s NPR station, but he NEVER played anything with bagpipes. I have a theory that Ed Miller doesn’t like the bagpipes. But you, Marc, you aren’t afraid of anything!"

You're very welcome Robert. That's one of the many things I love about this podcast. The diversity. That is what truly makes America great. A few years ago, I published my CD How America Saved Irish Music (listen to show #169). The main part of the story is that the Irish diaspora preserved traditional Irish music, which made it's way back to Ireland. But the other aspect is that we are melting pot of different cultures. And all of those influences end up in contemporary Irish & Celtic music, whether you're talking about rock'n'roll, R&B, jazz, country, bluegrass, hip hop, electronica. And it's brilliant. The traditional culture is important but so are the changes that affect the music every day. Without it, I would be playing the same 12 bands over and over again.

As for Ed Miller, I love that theory. And I have a few vague memories of him cracking jokes about bagpipes which may confirm your hypothesis. If you're like Ed Miller or just like Ed Miller's music, he has a radio program called Across the Pond. It comes out on Sundays from 6-8 PM on Sunradio in Austin. And I *think* you can listen to it online.

The Irish & Celtic Music Podcast exists on the generosity of our Patrons of the Podcast. You can pledge as little as $1 per episode to pay for the production of this podcast, as well as my time in producing the show. You'll even get shows before regular listeners and my deepest thanks.

Tune in and eavesdrop as she talks to professional writers of all types, from graphic novelists to poets to literary novelists, about their particular, daily processes. https://rachaelherron.com/write/

* CELTIC PODCAST NEWS

I also host Celtfather Music & Travel podcast. I just released a new show where I interviewed Breton musician Dom Duff. He was one of the early contributors to the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast. I was thrilled to talk with him in Brittany. And we also got a concert from him. You can hear a little of my interview and the entire concert over at http://celtfather.com. You don't want to miss this.

If you're a long-time listener, you probably know that I don't speak Gaelic. My friend Rudiger Reinhardt frequently sends me audio files with how to pronounce the names of some of the songs I play in the show. Last week, I relaunched my Duolingo app to try and learn Gaelic. Apparently, there's now a Club that you can join on the app to learn. If you'd like to join the club, you'll find a code on Facebook with details. I'll also post it in the newsletter. Only a limited number of people can be in the club and if you're not trying to learn, you won't get to stay in. So we're gonna push each other and hopefully, we can learn together. Go download the app, then come join me! https://www.duolingo.com/

Corpus Christi Irish Sessions emailed: "You ask us to tell you what we are doing while listening to your podcasts. Well right now we are cleaning up after Hurricane Harvey. When we get caught up we plan on sending in some audio of our session get togethers. Love the show."

Nick emailed: "Hey Marc! I'm so excited I found this podcast through a friend in the Merry Wives of Windsor (who you just covered). I'm a huge Irish / Celtic music fan and play a lot of it. I wanted to go out on a limb and see if you'd be interested in featuring or including my band Forkroot in one of your shows. We do a mix of Irish, Folk and Bluegrass. I'll be listening in regardless and am excited to discover more about all the musics out there. Thanks for doing this podcast. Cheers, Nick"

Stuart Jervis emailed from Belgium: "Hi Marc, I'm listening to the 2-hours of Scottish Music episode while preparing the next trip in our Pipers Remembering WWI-project. A fellow piper and I are visiting all WWI Military Cemeteries in Belgium, a list of about 530 places. Keep up the good work as I always enjoy listening to your podcasts. In attachement a picture of the dram I just poured myself. Slainthe."
