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 its culture, history, and legends. You can join us with an auditory and visual adventure through podcasts and videos.

Jolena posted on Mastodon: "Hi Marc. This is Jolena, the blind woman who has commented on some of your shows. I'm still listening and loving the music as usual. I'm listening to Episode 626 of your show while sitting on the back porch. The weather has finally cooled off for a little while, so I'm taking advantage of it while I can. Take care and have a blessed day."

jendefer also posted on Mastodon: "Just listened to the new #Jiggy single of Willie Taylor, and wow, is it intense! Thanks @celtfather for another great Irish & Celtic Music Podcast episode"

Rachel Red commented on Patreon: "I saw Old Blind Dogs a few weeks ago and they performed Highland Lassies Parts 1 & 2. It was the bees knees! Glad to see it was featured this week."

Finally, Allie Ryan asks: "Hi Marc, do you know any “district 2” Irish music bands?

“District 2” being the City Council East Village, Gramercy Park, Kips Bay, Lower East Side of Manhattan ?

Our family, including our 9 & 11 yr old daughters listen to the podcast on Sundays when going to music lessons ( and to practice Irish dance lessons  )

I am running to represent the district in City Council and would love to represent/ promote a local band(s)/artist on the campaign trail. My husband is clipping together video clips and always needs a good song.

We plan to have a meet and greet at our local Paddy Reillys bar ( lot of history there !)  -  so who knows, maybe we’ll at some point have a venue / gig for them -   hopefully a victory party.

Thanks for any response. Election coming up Tuesday so we will be in full campaign mode non stop til then  -  things will happen fast.

Hope this gives you some inspiration / ideas and hope to hear from you or artists soon ( feel free to pass on this email / address ). "
