Greetings my friends. I'm traveling right now. So today starts four weeks of Guest Hosts on the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast. Each of these shows will be different from my usual format. And I think you're gonna love the different styles.

John Wilmott is the host of this week's podcast. I first met John on MP3.com in 2000. He was doing an amazing job promoting Celtic music. In 2008, he was the tour guide for the Brobdingnagian Bards 2nd Tour of Ireland.

John Wilmott is a fantastic storyteller with a love of Irish spirituality. He now runs Carrowcrory Cottage & Labyrinth in Ballinafad, Co. Sligo where he leads a variety of spiritual retreats in Ireland.

Most of the tracks in this week's show are not mentioned during the broadcast. So if you want to find out who was played, please visit the shownotes at CelticMusicPodcast.com. All of the songs are time stamped to make it easy for you to find out who was played.

And of course, I will also compile your favorite music into the Celtic Top 20, featuring the most-popular songs of 2018. Check out the playlist.

We kicked off the show with Jed Marum's tune "Calla's Waltz". That tune inspired the CD of the same name. The last CD, in fact, of Jed Marum. I was saddened last week when I learned that Jed passed away on May 2. He was 66 years old.

Jed's music has been a big part of this podcast. He first showed up in show #13. But he quickly became an essential part of the show. He even allowed me to share some of his CDs, in their entirety, on the podcast. #42 featured Lonestar Stout. #91 featured Soul of a Wanderer.

My first big experience with Jed Marum was at the Texas Scottish Festival in 2011. I shared a stage with him and Hugh Morrison other musicians. I'm not a super outgoing guy. But Jed approached me and made me feel like he did with everyone, like one of the family.

He was kind and generous person. So today, I'm gonna highlight his music. I'll share of the music of others as well. But it's mostly about Jed. His passing is a great loss to the Celtic community. I want to celebrate his life with music.

If you don't yet have the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast app, you're missing out. This is probably the easiest way to to  listen to the show. Well, unless you're Patron of the Podcast. Download your free podcast app from our website.

Robert McMahon posted on Patreon: "Years ago Jed played at my home for family and friends.  Even though my children were quite young, they never forgot that visit.  His music was so heartfelt.  I'm terribly saddened by this news."

Randy Tredway posted on Facebook: "We probably have his last recordings from his January show here in the music room"

Wade Weiler posted on Facebook: "I'm still in shock and disbelief after reading the news yesterday, but also most thankful for knowing Jed. He and I were in the band, Eammon's Kitchen several years back, along with Caerynn Riccarde and Edward Riccardi I think my favorite song of Jed's is his "Uncle Joe"."

Allan Marcotte emailed me: "Marc, I just saw that Jed Marum died suddenly yesterday.  I became a fan of his when I heard "Prayer from Little Round Top" on the podcast a few years back."

Trudy Scales sent a voice recording. She shared a whole bunch of memories. I decided to share just one of them.

Cynthia Naughton posted a photo on Facebook "Jed was also an actor! Here he is in character for his role in Road to Valhalla from Lone Chimney Films"

Melissa Tatum emailed a voice recording: "I heard you were soliciting memories of Jed Marum for a show. Jed and I wrote several songs together, the first of which was called Witches Well and which appears on his Calla's Waltz CD.  I recorded a brief snippet on how that song came to be."

  Posted: May 10th, 2018     60.5 MBytes

It's tough to find women in Celtic music. That's what I learned when searching my library for music performed by women for Mother's Day. But I found some great Celtic music from The Gothard Sisters, FIMM, Bonnie Rideout, Dublin Harpers, Eilis Crean, Good Foot, Dearest Home, Sarah Copus, Burning Bridget Cleary, Solasta, Fromseier Rose, Beth Patterson, Searson, Emish, Plaidgrass.
