CELTIC PODCAST NEWS

* 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 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.

You may not realize. I host two other podcasts. Celtfather Music & Travel is sort of a behind the scenes look at my music and travel adventures. I just recently posted an interview I did with Samantha Gillogly. She's a Celtic fiddler and violinist who will be up next. We chatted about how she fell in love with Lord of the Rings in that episode. Listen and subscribe at celtfather.com.

I also rebranded my Pub Songs Podcast. It's now called Geek Pub Songs. The content is still pretty much the same. You'll get a lot of Celtic music plus there will be a bit more geek music. So if you've ever wondered what I meant by Geek musician, this is a good way to find out about it. Find out more at pubsong.net.

Finally, I don't think I've mentioned it, but my next album comes out on March 6, 2018. It's called As Long As I'm Flyin' features music inspired by Joss Whedon's cancelled cult classic TV show Firefly. Go to FireflyDrinkingSongs.com for details.

Steve emailed: "Hi Marc, Today i was coming home from a really hard day of work, sat down in my room full of stuff to and thought about how i will be able to do all these things and go to work tomorrow again. Then i thought, well, i might as well listen to some awesome music to calm down. I clicked on the celticmusicpodcast bookmark. What i found was the newest episode 'working hard'. It fitted so perfectly for this day, thanks a lot. Especially because it featured one of my favourite tunes, the Morrisons, which i am trying to learn on the bouzouki at the moment. I remember when i first found your podcast. I was walking through the elfish woods of the alps with a friend, drinking a good irish uisce and listening to episode #151, which i randomly found on youtube. Being there with this music was very magic, and it made us fall in love with irish music (which we never heard before) and we formed a band afterwards. Thanks for inspiring us! Slainte!"

Someone made an angry comment on Facebook the other day. He asked if I was paying royalties to the artists whose music I was using. One of the tragedies of creating this podcast is that I cannot afford to pay artists for play in the show. I calculated that it would cost over $20,000 per episode if I was to pay the standard royalty rate.

Instead, I ask artists to permit me to use their music royalty-free. But I feel bad about just doing that. So years ago, I started donating a portion of the income I earn from compilation CDs and from Patreon to Celtic non-profits, to help support our Celtic community.

I just compiled the list of 2017 donations. We donated a total of $3885.57 that went to Celtic non-profits last year. That means we have donated a grand total of over $31,000 to Celtic non-profits since I started donating money in 2004. You can see a breakdown of the Celtic non-profit donations on the website.

You can support this podcast by becoming a Patron of the Podcast on Patreon. Your generous pledge of $1 per episode or more keeps this show running and helps Celtic non-profits keep sharing Celtic music and culture. Plus, you'll get episodes before regular listeners. It's a great to support Celtic music.

I want to thank our newest Patron: Dawn O Davis

As the hours of 2017, happily slip into our past, may you all be cheered, dancing singing merrily,! For no matter the circumstances flowing in and out our lives, music, friendship and staying positive bolsters our strengths and warms our hearts!"

Kelly Garrod emailed: "Hi Marc, While standing in a long line at the post office today (Christmas is next week) and wearing my NEW Irish & Celtic Music Podcast t-shirt, the lady in front of me asked about your podcast.  I told her it was wonderful, and have been a listener for a number of years. While standing in line, she downloaded your podcast and planned to be a new listener on her drive home. I didn’t know it would be this easy to spread the word about your good work."

James, Savannah & Mikayla Allen emailed a picture: "Hey Marc! Just wanted to share a picture of what we did while listening to the latest episode! This is the 1st 5 of the eventual 8 dozen cowboy cookies we made tonight.

I got an email from Iona last week. They said they are about to release final CD. The band is not breaking up, but the changing music industry is forcing them to change how they release music, or in their case, stop releasing it.

This is a good time to point out that if you enjoy the music of bands in this podcast, there are several important things you can to do. If you still buy CDs, buy one from one of these bands. If not, buy downloads or band merchandise. Or if you're streaming music (outside of this podcast, of course), then follow the bands on Spotify or whatever streaming website they prefer.

Finally, I'm planning to do more Spotify promotions. So if you have any Celtic music playlists on Spotify, I'd love to hear from you. Drop me an email.

George Mears emailed: "Marc, I've been a lurker for years as I've stumbled through adulthood, fatherhood, husbandhood, and school. I've become a patron but I didn't see any opportunity to make a one time donation, which i'd like to do for all the ... years I've been mooching. Any easy answer or should I just mail you cash?"

TODAY'S SHOW IS BROUGHT TO YOU
BY CELTIC INVASION VACATIONS

Don't just see the world. Go on a relaxing adventure with a small group of Celtic music fans, just like you. We won't see everything. Instead, we will stay in one area. We will get to know the region through it's culture, history, and legends. You can help me decide where we should go into 2019. Subscribe to the mailing list to join the invasion at http://celticinvasion.com/

Cary Glenn emailed a picture: "I enjoyed the latest show today. I was working at my forge and on came a tune with hammering on an anvil as I was doing the same thing. Coincidence? I think not! One on the things I was making today was treble clef bottle openers. Thanks for making the show."
