Dan McClain emailed a photo while Listening to Black Tower #635 on a Northbound Train: "Hello, Today I’m listening to episode #635 while I travel on AmTrak’s Texas Eagle from Taylor TX to Bloomington IL. Attached picture is the train station at Temple TX.  Thank you for all you do to celebrate and promote Celtic music."

Patrick Rieger emailed some photos: "Hi Marc, I wanted to thank you for choosing my message from a few months back to read on the air and share the photo in the show notes in episode 615 of the Irish and Celtic Music Podcast.

You are very right, it is wonderful to be more involved in the community and help spread the fun and the joy of Celtic music and other aspects of the culture. And to think it all started 17 years ago when a friend told me about something called renaissance festivals.

Celtic Pittsburgh is growing. My wife and son have joined in, as well as a friend. We had tables at the Pittsburgh Irish Festival, and the Ligonier Highland Games.Thanks to those events we have many more subscribers on our Facebook page, and I have learned about other events and other musicians and bands I had not heard of before.

I have attached a few photos. The Irish festival was held on the site of an old steel mill in Rankin, Pa, just outside of Pittsburgh. In one photo, Sue Borowski's group, RichPatrick, can be seen performing at the Ligonier Highland Games.

On Labor Day weekend, Sue and I were interviewed on the radio! It was an "I can't believe I am doing this" moment. If you care to have a listen, here is the link.

Again, thank you!

Woodland Folk sent some photos in September
