* CELTIC PODCAST NEWS:

"Slainte Mhaith" is the first music video from Kilted Kings album Name On My Soul. Go give it a listen on YouTube. Then share it with a friend.

* Finally, I had a wild idea to build the Celtic podcast community. I've been hearing about Podcast Listening Groups. And I wondered if any of you would be interested in me setting up a weekly listening time where you can chat live with other podcast listeners. Imagine a session, say on Tuesday evening at 7:30pm. Everyone would start playing the latest show. Then you you could go to the Irish & Celtic Music Club on Facebook and chat with other Celtophiles. You can share which songs you like and which you don't. Does this sound like something you'd be interested in? That's the question I will pose in the next Celtic Music Magazine. So think about it, and then email me if you're interested. If I can get a couple dozen or so people interested, I will organize such an event. If you have a preferred day or time, please share that as well.

* I WANT YOUR FEEDBACK: What are you doing today while listening to the podcast? You can send a written comment along with a picture of what you're doing while listening. Call 678-CELT-POD to leave a voicemail message. That's 678-235-8763.

Nicole Theresa posted on Facebook: "Just wanted to drop a note - - I'm listening to past podcast episodes while I grade music finals (I work for a virtual school in California; I'm a high school music appreciation teacher). The wonderful music is making the painful student submissions a bit more bearable! Cheers!"

Shira Gaudet posted on Facebook: "Thank you for your podcast! Yours is what I listen to when I need a mental break. Love the music. Stone Soup is my favorite episode so far! Still working through all of the old episodes."

Kevin Long emailed: "I was so happy to find your podcast while searching for Celtic music on iTunes. Where has this been all my life? Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for this! I cannot begin to describe to you, the memories of my childhood that this podcast brings back. My Grand Father and Great Grand Father used to sit and play this very same music on the fiddle and guitar when I was young boy growing up in Sarasota Florida back in the late sixties and early seventies.

Within the past two months, two events have drawn me ever closer to your broadcast. First, at my surprise birthday party to celebrate my 50th birthday, my amazing wife Vicky surprised me with a planned trip to Cork (my ancestral homeland)and Limerick for May. Second was the unfortunate passing of my beloved Grand Father James Russell Huff. He gave me many things in life, one of them is my love of music. My Mother found a recording of him and my Great Grand Father playing Celtic music recently and my family sat around and listened. This is when I knew that I was not only destined to find your podcast but, support it as well. Mark, I hope to happen upon you on the emerald isle one day and buy you a pint. Slainte!"

I got a text that wrote: "Thanks for your podcast! I love listening to Celtic music and it helps me relax as I work on my grad school presentations"

Kevin Lavery emailed: "I'm a recent college grad from central Pennsylvania and your podcast has kept me company on many solo road trips and whenever my Pandora station just lacks the variety I seek. I know you're often looking for new bands to play, and I wanted to suggest Down by the Glenside. I've seen them perform twice, in Gettysburg and at a Celtic festival in Harrisburg hosted by the Kilmaine Saints. Both bands put on a great show at the festival, but DbtG was closer to my own tastes in music. I'd love to see their work get some love with a wider audience. Thanks for doing what you do."

Today's show is brought to you by Celtic Invasion of Brittany

Standing stones are pretty awesome and inspiring to see. But imagine 3000 of them, together... and you, able to make a daily sojourn among the stones. This June, you can see the Carnac Stones up close and personal, just a 20 minute walk from where we are staying in the coastal village of Carnac in Northwest France. You have until February 15, 2017 to reserve your spot on the next Celtic Invasion Vacation. Enjoy the culture, history and legends on a timeless adventure with a small group of 6-8 invaders. Join the invasion at celticinvasion.com

 

Notes:

* Helping you celebrate Celtic culture through music. My name is Marc Gunn. I am a musician and podcaster. You can share this show and find more episodes at celticmusicpodcast.com. And you can support this show on Patreon.

* CELTIC PODCAST NEWS: You can now listen to the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast in our very own app available for Android AND iOS devices. This was a part of one of our big milestones last month. So this app is now FREE! It was developed by Libsyn and has some nice features which will allow you to easily share the show on social media and contact me as well.

Of course, if you're on Android, you may also have the Marc Gunn Celtic Music app. Mine lacks the sharing features but you can also listen to my other podcasts including the Pub Songs Podcast, Renaissance Festival Podcast and The Celtfather.

* I want to send out a big thanks to the patrons of the podcast. Your generous pledge of as little as $1 per episode pays for the production of this podcast as well as my time in producing the show. You will enjoy a personal podcast feed where you can listen to the show before regular subscribers, occasional extended editions of the show, and my deepest thanks. When we hit a milestone, you get a 2-hour special. We are just $25 away from 2-hours of Scottish music. And of course, next week, we have a 2-hour retrospective coming your way. Thanks to our newest patron: Tony. Become a patron today!

Sytze Kamphuis posted in the shownotes: "Hey Marc, there is one Celtic Christmas song that I always play in the winter. It is not just one of the best Celtic Christmas songs I've ever heard, it's one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard, period. Seacht Suailci Na Maighdine Muire by Aoife ni Farragh from her album 'Aoife'. Hope you get a chance to listen to it and I wish you and your family all the best for 2017."

Jeffrey Evans emailed a picture: "On the Celtic postcast, you're always asking what were doing when we're listening. Normally, that is difficult for me since I'm either listen to new episodes at work and there is a strict rule about taking pictures inside the plant fence or I'm listening to some favorite episodes that I have permanently downloaded as I'm falling asleep. Not today. It's probably the last decent day of the year for the Ohio Valley. I left work early and just sitting outside, cross stitching a celtic cross as a wedding gift for a friend as episode 154 plays."

Alex Marling emailed: "Hello Marc I would like to say that I really enjoyed your Irish and Celtic pub songs from your #114th podcast it was great I live in Canada Ontario in a small town called innisfill. We are mostly farming but I am a high school student and whenever I have a bad day I just go and listen to your amazing podcast I also like to say that on YouTube you look like a wooky with long hair and your star wars song makes me laugh every time. Have a good day and keep it up your podcast is incredibly amazing."
