TRAVEL WITH CELTIC INVASION VACATIONS 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.

Alied Pérez Martínez emailed: "Hi Marc, Since my last mail I've moved to England, but due to the "Cerveza" issue I haven't been able to visit the Celtic lands nearby. Until last weekend when, to take advantage of the bank holiday, I went to Manchester to visit my brother.

From there we went to Colwyn Beach and hiked to Llandudno, with a short stop at Angel Bay, North Wales. There I took some footage and photos of the beautiful Welsh coastline and landscape.

And this is where your expertise is required. I want to publish it to YouTube, and use some Welsh music as background. Can you suggest me tunes/artists to use? Either safe tracks or from artists who agree to be used. Proper credit will be acknowledge, of course. The video should probably be around 7 minutes; no more than 10 minutes.

What you think? Whom should I ask but the Celt Father?"

Episode #183 is the Music of Wales. Additional artists: Robin Huw Bowen, No Murder No Moustache, Allan Yn Y Fan

Brian McReynolds emailed a photo from episode 516: "Listening to the latest episode while relaxing on Cannon Beach, OR."

John Spencer II emailed: "Love Celtic music and your podcasts. Hi Mark.  I really enjoy your work and the music on all of the Celtic music podcast. I'm currently enjoying it with a cup of strong coffee and playing Lord of the Rings Online."
