I want to help the artists who don’t have a record label or a giant production company behind them. They are doing everything themselves. Your support of this podcast helps with that mission. 

This show is listener supported. Instead of trying to find advertisers, I've decided to let your generosity fund the creation, production, and promotion of the show.

Ian Shaw emailed from Shanghai: "Hi Marc, Start by saying you make a fantastic Podcast giving the lesser known bands good air time.

I am a Ships Captain and come from Scourie (pronounced SCOWRIE) just up the coast from the Isle of Skye. I presently supervise the shipbuilding of the world’s largest stainless steel chemical tankers in Shanghai China.   Just small enough to squeeze through the “old” Panama canal. ( 600 foot long and 106 foot wide)

I could not help but smile when I listened to your discussions regarding the Skye midges which you encountered last summer. They are at their worst when peat cutting in the highlands.

I discovered your podcast last March when I decided to try and change my lifestyle after my best friend died from a heart attack.  Thanks to your great selection of music which I listen to every morning/night as I speed walk the 40 minutes from my Chinese home to the shipyard.  I have now lost 20Kg ( 20% of my original body weight) and got my general health in order.  I am now completing marathons instead of lying on the sofa drinking beer.   Hope your daughter is recovering after her operation

Thank you Marc....keep up the great work, I have found many new bands to listen to by purchasing their music.

Christian Conein emailed from Germany: Hey Marc, a surprising fact is, that the Irish & Celtic music podcast is even good for your health. In February this year I had to quit smoking. Every time I think about tobacco, I take my bicycle instead, doing some sports and listening to the  Irish & Celtic music podcast. Thank you so much for hours of motivation and musical explorations like Daimh. A warm Kölle Alaaf from Cologne / Germany

Pádraig Donworth emailed: Hi Marc, I wanted to thank you for this wonderful podcast, which has become a staple in my weekly music consumption and has introduced me to many great musicians.

I've listened to the show while rock climbing with friends, giving massages, and baking bread. Currently living in New Jersey but I travel a lot and will inevitably share this resource with people wherever I go. I also wanted to specifically thank you for your words of solidarity with the Jewish community in Pittsburgh.

It's heartening to hear Irish people and people of Irish ancestry take a stand against antisemitism and other forms of oppression operating in the world today. We Irish and Celtic people should look at our own history, as a people exploited in our homeland and scapegoated abroad because of bigotry and anti-immigrant sentiment, as a basis for compassion and empathy with vulnerable groups today. Here's to a world free of hatred and full of music.

Sincerely, Pádraig Donworth"

Funny story- I actually found your podcast while doing research for a Werewolf character.  She was a Ceilican (that’s a werecat in the game.  The line is from England, based on a faerie cat that was hunted to extinction some decades before the time period we played in J ).  She was Irish-born, and a Celtic punk rocker, and your podcast turned up when I was looking for music for her to play.  This was nearly 5 years ago, and I’ve been a fan ever since.

Thanks for all the fantastic music.  I’ve had a great time listening over the years. Slàinte (mhath)"

My boyfriend and I are going to Ireland soon with his brother and sister-in-law. They haven’t decided when yet. I am so excited!

My grandmother is a Mulligan from County Cork, but never shared information about her family with us. My uncle did some research before he died, so I am going to find that to get caught up and maybe do some more of my own.

Glad we found you. Please let me know if you are playing in Birmingham. Thanks!"

CELTIC PODCAST NEWS

* Helping you celebrate Celtic culture through music. My name is Marc Gunn. I am a Celtic musician and podcaster. This show is dedicated to the indie Celtic musicians. I want to ask you to support these artists. Share the show with your friends. And find more episodes at celticmusicpodcast.com. You can also support this podcast on Patreon.

Before get started with the news, I wanted to let you know that next week will be a rough time for me. My oldest daughter is having a very big surgery. I'm hoping I will have shows completed for you. But I feel like the world is turned upside down right now. I hope you will bare with me through the next couple months.

I host two other podcasts. The Pub Songs Podcast which is currently replaying all of my albums. The other is Celtfather Music & Travel. It's a spoken word podcast where I share things from my adventures and thoughts that occur. Every now and then, it's highly Celtic-related. I did a recent episode on my Celtic Invasion of Oban Scotland in 2010. And most recently, I published a thought-provoking response to a recent episode by Seth Godin on "Anthems, Pledges and Change". I feel like it was a really interesting podcast and it is related to the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast as well as my music. Give it a listen.

Christmas is just around the corner. I am pleased to announce the first Celtic Christmas Podcast episode of the year is now online. You can subscribe at CelticChristmasPodcast.com/about/

To celebrate the holiday, I have a new Christmas Music Special that is now available. You'll get 2 Celtic Christmas CDs, Celtic Heartstring Christmas ornament and a podcast shirt for one incredibly low price. Follow the link in the shownotes at BestCelticMusic.net/shop for details.

While you're there, you can also check out our free podcast app available on iTunes and Amazon.

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 it's culture, history, and legends. You can join us with an auditory and visual adventure through podcasts and videos.

2019 is the Celtic Invasion of Star Wars. 2020 is the Origins of Celtic Invasions. You can find out more about these two exciting trips. Join the invasion at http://celticinvasion.com/

THANK YOU PATRONS OF THE PODCAST!

Another podcaster told me recently that they had some great advertisers on their show. I was very happy for them.

But the truth is, I am happier that this podcast is not influenced by record labels or publicists. The show exists first and foremost to help independent artists get heard. It's here to introduce you to the artists who are not under the thumb of some corporation. They don't have a big budget to promote themselves. They're just making great music. That's what I want to share.

So this show is listener supported. No advertisers. No record labels. Your generosity funds the creation, production, and promotion of the show. In return, you get episodes before regular listeners, discounts on merch, and when we hit a milestone, you get extra special episodes, including a bonus episode of the Celtic Christmas Podcast that is now online.

I want to thank our incredible Celtic Legends: Annie Lorkowski, Bryan Brake, Carol Baril, Hank Woodward, Hunter Melville, Kevin Long, Lynda MacNeil, Marianne Ludwig, Nancie Barnett, Scott Benson, Shawn Cali, Theresa Sullivan. These generous people pledge $25 or more per month to make this podcast a reality.

Jerry Murphy emailed back in May: "Hello Marc, Yes, I downloaded and have very much enjoyed listening to the lot.  I also have shared it with my executor, named Riley, for his enjoyment.  He is also a professional musician! I wish you well, as I do any of my ancestral countrymen (both Scottish and Northern Irish).  But I am a completely disabled veteran, with very limited means. Slainte!"

Arika Lycan emailed from from Ypsilanti (ips-ill-an-tee) MI: " Good morning! I’m driving back home to visit my parents in Columbus Ohio, To pass the time with my mom while my dad has hip replacement surgery. I’m sure I’ll pop in my earbuds and listen to the rest of this episode which will keep me in good spirits. Maybe I’ll even share an ear bud with my mom :-) Safe travels in Scotland!"

Connor Hibbs emailed: "Hi Mark! Just re-listening to episode 360 while sitting and editing photos (That's what I do for a living) Hoping to get a job out before the day gets too warm so I can also spend some time landscaping my back yard. Just wanted to write to tell you I love your show and give a suggestion! I'm not sure how you edit the show together, but it would be great to have chapters embedded into the feed so I could skip back to the beginning of songs I really love.

I totally realize that my suggestion would create a little more work for you overall in what is already without a doubt a labor intense process, and am definitely not saying that I would ever stop listening even if you choose not to go that route. Just wanted to provide a friendly suggestion for a feature from someone who really adores the show and feels that others might enjoy having something like that included! Sláinte!"

I want to start by sending out my heartfelt condolences to the Jewish community in Pittsburgh. I'm so sick of the  hate that inspires these attacks.

It reminds me of the attacks the Irish suffered when they first came to America. That hate is a plague. So I wanted to send out my Celtic solidarity for that community and all the disenfranchised communities who similarly suffer. We are here for you.

I wanna thank you so much for listening to the Irish and Celtic Music Podcast. There are other podcasts sharing Celtic music. And they are fantastic. In fact, if you know of any Celtic podcast that's worth listening to, drop me an email. I'd love to share it with listeners.

You are here because we're doing something a little bit different. We focus on independent Celtic music. These bands don’t have huge financial backers. They don’t have record labels. Working together, we are helping them live a dream. We are part of something bigger.

So thank you for supporting this podcast and my dream to create an inclusive Celtic community.

THANK YOU PATRONS OF THE PODCAST!

I don’t know about you. But I am not a fan of corporate influence. Certainly not in politics, but also not in the music I create and share. That’s one of the reasons that the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast supports independent Celtic musicians. I want to help the artists who don’t have a record label or a giant production company behind them. They are doing everything themselves. Your support of this podcast helps with that mission.

This show is listener supported. Instead of trying to find advertisers, I've decided to let your generosity fund the creation, production, and promotion of the show. You'll get episodes before regular listeners, discounts on merch, and when we hit a milestone, you get extra special episodes, including a bonus episode of the Celtic Christmas Podcast that will come out this month.

I want to thank our newest patrons of the podcast: Laura, Patricia B., Martin K.

And finally, I want to give a huge thanks to Carol Baril. She is one of the all new Celtic Legends.

Brandon Carl posted a picture on Facebook: "Listening to your Halloween podcast whilst playing Euro Truck Simulator 2 PC game!"

Kerry Fergason posted a picture on Facebook: "On a road trip this weekend I discovered that this little guy, named Squirrel, whines unless I am playing your Irish and Celtic music podcast. Thank you Squirrel whisperer! — in Dallas, Texas."

Mark Albright emailed: "Marc, Last year, when I upgraded my iPhone, I opened the Irish and Celtic Music podcast and noticed it defaulted to the very first episode. I looked through what was played and unplayed, noticed my listening has been sporadic at best, and decided I would start at the very beginning and go up until the most recent podcast. Well, a week and half ago, I got caught up.

I've been listening to your podcast while cooking dinner, while cleaning my apartment, while driving to and from work. I also have it on when I've traveled up north and back, proving the podcast makes a great travel companion. You name it, you and the music has been in the background. Along the way, I've Favorited the Christmas music podcasts which has further proved the best way to listen to Christmas music is to have it played on Celtic instruments. But the biggest story I want to share involves your Celtic Music Workout specials.

I started listening to the first one when, completely by chance, when I went to the gym and worked the elliptical. It was a trip! The podcast got my heart rate up and kept me motivated to keep on going. I shared those two podcasts with my friend Roxanne, my nephew and niece-in-law - all of whom are long distance runners. I also shared them with the managers of the gym that I go to. They got a bang out of listening to them and liked how the music kept the momentum up throughout the podcast. So, if you are ever inspired to create any new Celtic Music Workout podcasts, please do so. They are appreciated! Keep up the great work on the podcast. It's greatly appreciated...well, at least by me. Slainte!"
