* Helping you celebrate Celtic culture through music. I am Marc Gunn. I’m an Atlanta  -  based musician and podcaster. You can find a link to all of the artists in the shownotes, along with show times and chapters for each song when you visit our website at celticmusicpodcast.com. If you hear music you love, please email artists to let them know you heard them on the Irish and Celtic Music Podcast.

Happy Thanksgiving! And welcome to the final regular episode of the year. There are, of course, more episodes coming in December. But I needed a place to stop all of the voting for the Celtic Top 20. So I want to spend time with my family and work on the Celtic Christmas Podcast.

And so…  I’m putting together one All - Request episode for December. So a quick shout out to all of our amazing Patrons on Patreon. If there’s a song or tune you’d like to request for that special thank you episode, please drop me a line.

I’d also love to share some dedications. Maybe there’s a song that means a lot to someone special in your life? Make a dedication. Email me.

I’m also looking for more Celtic Stories by musicians or about musicians' songs. If you want to be featured or you know someone, email me.

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.

In 2023, we’re going on a Celtic Invasion of County Mayo in Ireland. We’re gonna explore the area and get to know Grace O’Malley, the Pirate Queen. Learn more about the invasion at http://celticinvasion.com/

John Sharkey White II emailed: “Is there a place I can download episodes going back to # 1?”

Snarkclaw posted on Apple Podcasts: "Great Music. Many thanks to Marc Gunn for this terrific podcast! I listened to the entire back catalog (a little over 520 episodes as of this review) over the past year, and have enjoyed so many great songs, including original pieces and covers of old classics. The ICM Podcast has introduced me to many bands and individual musicians I probably would never have discovered otherwise, and some are definite new favorites.

I also appreciate that the podcast is released with chapter markers and time stamps within the notes. This makes identifying (and replaying) songs very easy."

Kinnfolk replied to a Facebook post: "Pleased as always to be included in the podcast!! (By the way - we're making mac 'n' cheese sandwiches while listening.)"

Kelly emailed a photo from the Sail On episode: "Hi Marc, Here are some pictures of sailing south between Bodie Island (Kitty Hawk) and Roanoke Island while listening to the Sail On episode.

I have been a long time listener, since the very early days of your Podcast, and Proud Patreon member.  Your hard work to keep these coming is deeply appreciated. Many thanks."
