Ken Brixius wrote in the shownotes: "Been enjoying the podcasts since #1. Usually listen to several hours at a time while traveling to VA appointments. Very interesting blurb about you with #285. I was stationed in Vicenza, IT a bit before your time there, 1976-78. What is extremely interesting is that the post, Ederle, has absolutely no record of my company ever being there. 62nd Engineer Company was the only Atomic Demolition company, ever! 4th building on the left as you pass the main gate."

Johnny Berry commented on Patreon: "Marc....your podcast are always good, but this one is the best that ya have ever done (in my opinion) THANK YOU"

Brian Mcreynolds shared a photo on Facebook: "I'm at work upgrading some temperature controllers. It's a lot nicer work with some Celtic music from your podcast."

Eric Atkinson wrote in the shownotes: "I’m working and living in Pyongyang, North Korea. I don’t get TV or radio and I have very limited internet access. I rely on DVDs and podcasts for home entertainment. While on a breather trip to Beijing, I downloaded a lot of Irish and Celtic music podcasts and I listen to at least one every day. I’m listening to one now. Thanks for providing such great entertainment. It’s really appreciated in this challenging place to live. Keep up the good work.
p.s. I also play Celtic flute and with the lots of time I have to practice, I’m getting quite good. I’ve got my first private concert next Saturday. So, Irish and Celtic music will be played live on the International Compound in Pyongyang, North Korea next weekend.

Liam Smith posted on Facebook: "While listening to your podcast #284, 2-Hours of On Fire Celtic Music, my wife and I were quite taken with Innisfall's song, My Lagan Love. I didn't hesitate to order the MP3s from Amazon.com, and of course, I sent them a note to let them know where I found their music. Then, of course, I had to read all about them on their website. I'm well pleased!"

Thus my love of this music. I found you by accident, but I adhere to the concept that there are no accidents ... there is only some purpose that we haven't yet understood."

Great Celtic Music Hiding at Renaissance Festivals #283  

If you love acoustic Celtic music, you will find no better place to find great Celtic music than at Renaissance Festivals. Yes, I know the Celts had nothing to do with the "Renaissance", but Celtic music is one of the most-popular musical styles found at Ren faires. It's one of the last places where you can find true folk music without electric instruments or drum kits. Today, you'll hear a lot of great Celtic songs and a few tunes from Sarah Marie Mullen, The Poxy Boggards, Kilted Kings, Abby Green, Andrew McKee, The Ravens, 3 Pints Gone, Grey Aengus, Shillelagh!, Celtic Squall, Alabannach, The New Minstrel Revue, Cantiga, Minstrosity, Bounding Main, Lost Boys, Three Quarter Ale.

Donna Holstine Vander Valk posted on Facebook: "Well, I've just happily pledged - I've been considering it a while, but when I saw you were $1 away from your goal.....well, it was just too tempting! Thanks for all your hard work. It is truly appreciated in Calgary, Canada."

Annie Lorkowski posted on Facebook: "Hello Marc! You asked for photos from my recent Ireland trip... We took the ferry from Wales to Dublin, then the train to Galway, and a driving tour of the Connemara. We went pony trekking on the beach outside of Clifden, and visited the stunning Kylemore Abbey (here in the photo). I discovered your podcast after my first trip to Ireland, to keep the Irish inspiration in me until I got a chance to go back. And as I was listening to show #279, "Cead Mille Failte" was playing as my plane home flew over the Emerald Isle, and I must admit I got a little teary-eyed. Thanks for all you do and for inspiring me to go back."

Kelly Rogers emailed: "Marc, I listened to your latest podcast about Irish music albums for kids and my first thought was to the band Scythian. Several years ago Alec and Dan the founding brothers of Scythian, released a kids album for their 25 nieces and nephews called Cake For Dinner. It's a nice mix of traditional Irish songs like South Australia and The Littlest Jig, as well as folk and campfire songs from the U.S., French Canadian, Italian, and Ukrainian. Check it out at http://cakefordinnermusic.com. Plus their newest album Old Tin Can, is a return to their folk roots. A great band for all ages. At last Friday's show in Philadelphia there was a 3yr old girl rocking out with her family. Thanks for the great podcasts and have a Happy St. Patrick's Day."

Ashley Taylor sent a picture: "I actually just found this station about an hour ago searching for coyote run. I met them almost 10 years ago. I am from Greeneville, Tennessee and currently work on my 3 year olds costume. She is gonna be a viking and I'm painstakingly working on making a fur halfskirt from yarn.

Through you and your show I discovered a new depth to a world which I loved, but never knew was so varied. I am, of course, talking about celtic music.

That is 2 1/2 days. I am definitely an addict of Celtic Music and am proud of it. May Hekate light the shadowed paths in your life"

My grandfather introduced me to Celtic music and by the time I was 5 I could sing most of the drinking songs ever written. You asked for feedback so here it is: You should play more songs and less tunes. Don't get me wrong, jigs polkas and reels can be great but 40 minutes of them get boring after a little while. Overall though, it's a great podcast and you're an awesome host! P.S. I always swing while I listen to music.

Pirates vs. Dragons: Jupiter's Fancy  

Day 63: Murphy is champing at the bit. The Lady Jean is finished except for the final touches to the décor. Murphy wants that ship so badly I can taste it.

Murphy has taken to sitting in his cabin with a bottle of rum and a bad mood. I surprised him yesterday when I took him the latest song pages. He hid something in his drawer when he came in, but I caught a glimpse of something glowing green. Murphy has one of the devices too! Whatever the devices are…

Someone must know what the glowing orbs are. Maybe Gus? Of course, Gus is still absent for the most part. He was supposed to be recruiting new sailors, but that was weeks ago. Several sailors have come to Murphy claiming to be Gus’s recruits, so I am pretty sure he’s here in town too. He must have caught a ride on another ship. I think I’ve seen him in the distance around the yard—I am almost positive of it—but never close enough to speak to.

Andrew and I have taken to following Murphy wherever he goes—it’s not like we have a lot else to do to pass the time. Today, he went back to Daltry’s office. Trying one more time to talk the shipwright out of the ship, I suppose.

I stood with my ear to the door as Andrew kept lookout again. I suppose it is unfair of me to make Jenny be the lookout all the time, but people expect to see her around the shipyard. I still stick out like a sore thumb.

Outside the door, I heard a heated argument. I wished I had a glass to hold against the door. Their voices were just beyond the limit of understanding. Heart pounding in my chest, I eased the door open a crack, putting my eye against that instead.

Daltry bellowed at Murphy that he'd only barter the Lady Jean in exchange for...his Jupiter’s Fancy! A Jupiter’s Fancy? What on earth is that?

“I’ve got one of me own,” Daltry murmured, “but ye can never have too many precious things, can you? That’s me price, Murphy. Give me your Jupiter’s Fancy, and you can have the Lady Jean free and clear. It’s a hell of a good bargain.”

“Do you think me daft, Patrick Daltry? I’ll give up me Jupiter’s Fancy when pigs fly! How could I open a portal back t’ me own world if I gave it to ye?”

I almost gasped aloud, clapping my hand in front of my mouth to hold it back. So that is the secret! That’s why the maps don’t make any sense, and there are dragons soaring the skies. We are on another world!

Murphy stepped forward, chest to chest with Daltry. “Ye had yer chance, Paddy—but ye had t’ git greedy.” He pulled his dirk and stabbed the man in the belly. Then, Murphy began rifling through the things on the desk—he held up a sheet of parchment in triumph and shoved it in his coat.

He jerked open all the drawers of the desk until he crowed in victory and picked up a glowing green orb, tucking that into his coat as well—was that this Fancy thing? It reminded me of what I had seen in Murphy’s cabin.

“Thanks, matey,” he growled. “I knew we could come to an arrangement.”

He started toward the door, and I ducked away, my heart slamming against my ribs. As soon as I rounded the corner of the office, I took to my heels, running as fast as I could.

Save the Dragons!

I’ve managed to sneak a bit of pencil stub from the ship’s doctor, and a few scraps of paper from the cook. I’m recording my thoughts with them so I can reveal Black Jack Murphy’s infamy when I finally return to civilization.

There’s a universal truth about pirates. They hunt treasure, and they don’t care who they have to rob to get it.

There’s a universal truth about dragons. They hoard treasure, and they really don’t like for people to try and take it.

I was kidnapped by the infamous air pirate Black Jack Murphy and his crew of the airship The Lady Jean. They wanted me to chronicle their dragon hunts. Little did Murphy know where my sympathies lie! So, this journal — and the resulting CD, coming soon from Mage Records “Pirates vs. Dragons” — tell the true stories of Pirates vs. Dragons. The CD combines rousing sea shanties about pirates being pirates with songs about the majesty of dragons, and the journal details the privations I suffered. There’s a little something for both sides here–and I bet you find a new favorite or two.

Summer Cruiser posted on iTunes: "Upbeat and happy music! Great podcast, well-spoken host, fun/good music. All around excellent podcast"

Mark Hughes wrote on iTunes: "Fantastic resource for Celtic music. I am a long-time subscriber and supporter on Patreon. Please give this podcast a listen. You will not be disappointed."

Anthony Becker posted on Facebook: "Listening to The Irish and Celtic Music Podcast on the way from my hotel to the Broadcast Center in Rio De Janiero, Brazil for the Olympics. Here I am passing the Velodrome where the indoor cycle events went on. Nothing better than a bit of great Celtic music to make the walk, and day go faster — thinking about going home at Rio 2016 Olympic Park.

Katherine Thompson emailed a photo and wrote: "I've been listening to your show since its second year running, back when I was in high school, and I just wanted to let you know how grateful I am to have a running constant in my life from high school to college to serving in the Peace Corps in Zambia. When I'm not teaching 8th grade English at a rural school or writing my own music, I'm often in my mud hut listening to the Irish and Celtic Music Podcast, cheerfully blaring it for my entire village to hear! It's helped me combat homesickness over the past two years, but I only have two weeks left before I finish this life-changing assignment and I wanted to let you know that you played a huge part in it."
