Bill Crews emailed on Facebook: "I've now listened to every one of your podcasts. Around September I started playing them, in reverse sequence, at work to drown out the din of the "open office" environment. Last week I finished the last of them. Now I'm ready for the encore season."

Dave Cooper emailed on Facebook: "Marc - wanted to say a big thank you for putting us (Flowers of Edinburgh)  in the podcast a couple of weeks ago.  We were thrilled to have made the cut."

Alexander Randall 5th emailed a photo: "Im sitting in my home on water island in the us virgin islands watching the Queen Mary 2 sailing into the sunset. I just found your podcast, im listening to #371 and loving it.

I love rollicking instrumental celtic music and you are spot on. This is great. I will begin exploring all the others.
I already subscribed and in the morning ill figure out how to send money.

Here is a picture of what i am doing while listening.

Many years ago i was producing concerts, Boys of the Louch, Aly Bain.. In that era i was listening to Fairport Convention and Sandy Denny, dave Swarbrick.. a couple of years back i made trip to Cropredy for Fairport festival and treked to Shetlands for a dose of their music...

Celtic Stone is a favorite, especially “ an old man came in and sat down.” Fabulous piece.

Thank you for making this music available to people who are far removed from the isles and cant get it locally.  Wonderful of you.

Last week, I released my new single, "When She Held Me In Her Arms". I told you if you liked the song to go Add it to your playlist on Spotify. But I messed up the release day. It was officially released today, February 7.

I also host the Pub Songs Podcast. It’s not totally Celtic. It often features non-Celtic music I love. But the latest episode features some of my favorite Celtic bands of 2018. Many were featured in an article I published last month. But not all. The episode (#175) is called “Celtic Music and the Dark Side of the Pub”.

Cassidy Owen emailed a photo: "Hi Marc, Just wanted to say thank you for including Warbelow Range in the last couple of episodes. As a fellow Alaskan it is so wonderful to hear Caitlin Warbelow and the rest of Warbelow Range. I usually end up listening to the podcast while I walk too and from work at the Talkeenta Public Library in Talkeetna, Alaska. On a clear day I get a wonderful view of Denali while I walk. Thanks for the podcast, keep up the good work!"

Michael Garries emailed a photo: "Hey Marc! I love listening to your podcast while I study! I'm taking calculus right now (my least favorite subject by far) and your perfect blend of the various Celtic subgenres really helps to keep me focused from distractions. Keep up the good work and thank you for broadcasting the beauty of Irish and Celtic culture every month, we all appreciate it!"

Lily F Bentley replied to a Celtic Music Magazine newsletter: "Hello, and thank you for getting in touch! Thanks also for the MP3s, which all successfully downloaded. I’m still working through them, but so far Burning Bridget Cleary is standing out as a favourite. And more generally, I must say that as a UK-based listener, I’m really enjoying discovering Celtic musicians from further afield. It’s just amazing how much is out there that you’ll never hear on the British touring circuit. If I may return the favour with just a couple of recommendations of my own...

Gerry O’Reilly has done some beautiful covers of traditional Irish songs, which can be found here.

And chances are you’ll know this one already, but Talitha MacKenzie’s live performance of ‘Fear a Bhata’ is magical.

Really looking forward to hearing more from the podcast, and thanks for all the time you put into to curating the playlists - it really is appreciated, and I will be spreading the word!"

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/
