In 2018, you can join me on a Celtic Invasion of the Isle of Skye in Scotland. Sign up to the mailing list at http://celticinvasion.com

* CELTIC PODCAST NEWS

The Screaming Orphans new album is now on sale. It's called Taproom.

I made some changes to the Permission form on the website at 4celts.com. It turns out I never received several forms from bands who submitted. So now I've moved it all to a Google Form. If you're a band who submitted in the past month, feel free to resubmit. And if you're a new band or band with a new album, please use the form as well. I do ask that artists resubmit their permission with each new album. The form is a lot simpler to complete. Go check it out at http://4celts.com/

Nikitas Thlimmenos emailed: "hey there! I'm Nikitas, an Italian/Greek pharmacist. I just found out about the podcast and I'm listening to all the episodes starting from the last one and going backward, which is weird but awesome nonetheless. While I listen to the music I'm always making capsules. It's the kind of long, mindless work that needs some good music :) Keep up the good work!'"

Daniel Faigin emailed about the Woodsongs podcast at woodsongs.com. They are about to release a Celtic and Country episode. He wrote: "By my count, this should be show 902 or something like that. You can alert the listeners to your podcast to check the archives for more Celtic music."

You can find other Celtic podcasts on my podcast website at http://magenetwork.com/ 

Erin Nix emailed: "Hi Marc! As always, I adore each episode. I keep forgetting to send in a picture of what I'm doing, mostly because all I'm doing is just whatever I have going on that day. I used to listen while riding the bus and walking to my job. I listened on the weekends doing yard work. Now I listen while doing artwork. This podcast is the soundtrack of my life. :) So here are all the pictures, plus one from Ireland I took. After going to Ireland, I searched and found your podcast to keep Celtic music in my life. I can't believe that was 9.5 years ago already. Looking forward to the next 10+ years of the podcast. ;)"

Notes

* Helping you celebrate Celtic culture through music. My name is Marc Gunn. I am a Celtic and Geek musician and podcaster. This podcast is dedicated to indie Celtic music. These are the bands who are usually trying to make it without a record label. I have a caveat about that today. I'll tell you about it in a moment. I want to ask for your help to bring these artists the attention they deserve by sharing the show with your friends. You can find more episodes at celticmusicpodcast.com. And you can support for this show on Patreon.

There are a lot of small record labels who are doing great things for Celtic musicians. One of those is Temple Records. That's the label of Battlefield Band. In addition to releasing music by Battlefield Band, the label also helps small artists who are doing great things for Scottish music. Like Christine Primrose.

About the time I was finishing up the 2-hour Scottish Music show, episode #317, Temple Records sent me music from Christine Primrose. She sings in Scots Gaelic I thought she'd be a great addition to the show. I asked if they had any other music. But I didn't receive anything until the day after I published the show.

So today, I'm gonna highlight several artists from Temple Records, including the first band.

* CELTIC PODCAST NEWS

I want start by thanking everyone who picked up the 2017 Sainted Song Henger Special and collected the 10 bonus CDs from my Celtic music arhive. I really appreciate your support of this show. The collection is still on sale along with podcast t-shirts, but of course, you'll have to do without the bonus CDs. You can find all of our swag and compilation CDs in our store at http://bestcelticmusic.net/shop/ 

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.

Finally, check out http://AmeriCeltic.net. Tony Becket setup this website "to restore awareness, celebrate and preserve the culture and history of Celtic Americans by promoting live Celtic music, festivals, history & ancestry." He's working primarily with Northern California Celtic performers. And he has a YouTube channel which could use your love. 

Celtic music and culture is a relatively small community. I mean, if all of the Scottish, Irish, and Welsh ancestry people united, we'd have one heck of a cultural impact. Instead, it's limited mostly to St. Patrick's Day. That's a shame. So I'd like to ask your help of spreading the word about AmeriCeltic. And I'd also encourage you to start your own local Celtic community. Help get the word out about your musicians and cultural organizations. Let's keep Celtic culture growing!

And if you have a local organization, let me know. I'd be happy to either mention it here, or better yet, list it in our Celtic Music Magazine.

KToo posted on iTunes: "Excellent variety of Celtic music, from trad to Celtic influence. I look forward to each new episode"

Charline Grilhé emailed: "Hi Marc ! I discovered your podcast last Saturday. I just arrived in Dublin for the first time of my life for a crazy trip. I came from Paris to support Ben for a historical fencing competition followed by walking across the west coast of Ireland. Sadly I just lost my personal phone so I had no music to listen to and no Internet outside of our B&B. So I was looking for some podcasts. I discovered yours!

It was a pleasure to listen to your playlist all week, during the competition and then on the wonderful cliffs of Black Head walking to Moher, in the bus to Dublin, in the plane back to Paris and finally, in my tub with a little tear thinking about this incredible trip and awesome people. Thank you for being a part of this. I'll continue to listen to your podcast until the next time ! Best, Charlie"

Zak Kennedy emailed: "I listened to Episode 319 while mowing my yard and a few other chores around the house. I have also played other episodes while driving for my local transit agency. Had a few people ask what I was listening to and said they enjoyed it. I've downloaded a couple of older episodes that I missed to listen to in the run up to this year's Dublin Irish Festival. Have you been to it as a presenter or performer? Keep up the great work!"

Back in May, I knew my time would be tight this summer. So I decided to ask some of the Patrons of the Podcast if they had a Top 20 list of artists featured in the podcast. Annie Lorkowski was one of the first to respond with 20 songs. So today, I'm gonna share with you her top 20 list, in no particular order. As she said on Patreon, many are older songs because she was binge-listening from the beginning. And I found at least one that I actually don't have the music for. So we'll make do.

Erin Holman emailed: "Just wanted to say—I’m a freelance copyeditor and discovered your podcast just about a month ago (what took me so long? I have been listening to podcasts for about as long as they’ve been around!) Anyway, I think you are almost singlehandedly responsible for my recent uptick in productivity. I spent a study-abroad semester in County Galway (lived in vacation cottages just outside of Spiddal, with Galway Bay in my sightline) lo these many years ago (1991, to be exactk ;) ) and have enjoyed Celtic music well before that. Anyway, the upbeat tempo of so many Celtic songs is crucial for my focus and transports me back to ceili nights at the Hughes in Spiddal at the same time. Lucky for me, I’m just now listening to your early 2012 episodes—I’ve still got a wonderfully huge backlog to work through, and then I’ll start again. Thank you so much!"

We explore the Celtic history of different regions. We don't need to see everything, because this is a vacation. Instead, our invasion brings out the relaxation and magic of our adventure. In 2018, you can join me on a Celtic Invasion of the Isle of Skye in Scotland. Sign up to the mailing list at celticinvasion.com.

Lukas Zmuidzinas emailed: "Hello! I've been listening to your podcast for a few years now, and have always loved discovering new bands and artists every week. Last night, I had the wonderful opportunity to go see a show by a band called the Recollective, a fairly new Celtic group. I wasn't sure if you'd heard of them, but if not, you should definitely check them out!! They played an outstanding concert, and they were all very lovely people. Thanks so much for all your hard work in creating your awesome show! Cheers"

Hank Woodward emailed: "Hi Marc, Just want to pass along another huge thank you for all you do in bringing us wonderful music through the Irish & Celtic Music podcast. Also wanted to relate a great musical experience I got to share with my son Jackson (rising 9th grade violist) about a month ago. We got to see Mithril perform with the local Johnson City (TN) Symphony Orchestra. I got to talk a bit with the fiddler, Tom Morely, and let him know that I first heard their music on the Irish & Celtic Music podcast. The performance was doubly special to us, as three of the performers in the orchestra we know personally through the music school (Suzuki Talent Education of Appalachia), where my son and I take our viola lessons. Thanks again for continuing to bring us all the fantastic music on the Irish & Celtic Music podcast. Slainte"
