Listened to it while baking my annual loaf of Barm Brack, the traditional Irish bread of Halloween, although without the bits and bobs inside, as no one eats it but me. I also found a Barm Brack drink recipe that I tried. Irish whiskey, egg, all-spice and more. Interesting! Not sure if I'll make it again. Keep up the great work!" I got an anonymous text: "Good morning Marc from aboard the MV Coho as I head over to Victoria BC listening to the great pre-Halloween episode. Thanks for the great music and adding to the beauty of the trip." Patty Bolan emailed a picture: "Hey! My name is Patty, and I've been playing traditional Irish music for most of my life. For the past three and a half months, I've been on the Pacific Crest Trail hiking from Canada to Mexico. I have under 500 miles, or about two weeks, left now. I've started listening to the Irish and Celtic music podcast, and it's so amazing finding new music while hiking and hearing familiar names and people I'm friends with.

Email a voicemail message to celticpodcast@gmail.com Mario Montoya emailed a photo: "I'm not Celtic or Irish in any way. I play the Trumpet and I wish I could figure out how to play Celtic/Irish Trumpet (does any music exist?) Anyway, I discovered the podcast last week and I listen to it while I align optics and it really gets me focused and motivated. Thank you!! When I get the dough (currently in a slump) I'll gladly send some your way. Thank you!! I have yet to hear all the episodes, but has there been one dedicated to how Irish and Celtic music has influenced music around the world? For example some of the Mariachi Music I used to play has a sort of Irish Jig underlining rhythm... just curious" First Mario, I would LOVE to hear some Celtic trumpet playing. If anyone knows some out there, please let me know. I published a CD called How America Saved Irish Music. Listen to show #169. That's where I propose the opposite idea, the American influence on Irish music, but my partner on that album, Jamie Haeuser, has a hypothesis that New Orleans jazz jam sessions were influenced by the Irish sessions from immigrants to New Orleans in the 1800s. She hasn't done any more research on that, but it's an interesting idea. As is the influence of Celtic music on music around the world. It would be fascinating project to research. I know you can find Celtic music in every part of the globe thanks to the Irish diaspora. If you find anything, or if anyone listening knows of something on that line, I'd love to hear from you.

Email a voicemail message to celticpodcast@gmail.com Gary Neal emailed a photo: "This is what I'm doing while listening to Episode 327 Irish Jig Heroes." It's a bunch of paperwork that I don't envy. Paul Vosteen emailed from West Virginia: "Marc - ok, that's a little informal, Mr. Gunn, My wife and I volunteer at a local community radio station here in Pocahontas County (WV). We're three shows in to a Celtic radio show that we call "Celtic Highways and Byways" and I'm writing to ask your sage advice on obtaining new music. We're operating on pretty much a zero budget (volunteer DJs, public/community radio, etc.) and the current library of Celtic music at the station is rather old - there was a show that ended about 6 yrs back, so the 'newest' stuff in the collection is circa 2009. We do have a few CDs of our own that we tap into, but finding new music is our goal. One of the areas we are trying to focus on is reinforcing the connections between the music of the Celts and music in the Appalachias. We've made some inroads into this, but we're kinda newbies (although I have played Celtic music for a number of years - whistle and flute). ANY insights you may have are appreciated. We subscribe to your podcast, and enjoy it greatly - I generally listen while I am at work, while my wife plays it loud all about the house. :-)" Thank you Paul. First, Marc is fine. If you're looking for quick access to a bunch of Celtic music, become a patron at the Song Henge level, and you'll get a ton of albums with MP3s from the past couple o'years. That might be a great starting place. If there are any Celtic musicians out there listening, I will be happy to tell them right now to submit music to Paul. There's a link in the shownotes to the station where you can find them.

I especially love Celtic rock and you have a special hour just on that with bands I’m mostly unfamiliar with! Ed Miller used to host a Celtic segment on Austin’s NPR station, but he NEVER played anything with bagpipes. I have a theory that Ed Miller doesn’t like the bagpipes. But you, Marc, you aren’t afraid of anything!" You're very welcome Robert. That's one of the many things I love about this podcast. The diversity. That is what truly makes America great. A few years ago, I published my CD How America Saved Irish Music (listen to show #169). The main part of the story is that the Irish diaspora preserved traditional Irish music, which made it's way back to Ireland. But the other aspect is that we are melting pot of different cultures. And all of those influences end up in contemporary Irish & Celtic music, whether you're talking about rock'n'roll, R&B, jazz, country, bluegrass, hip hop, electronica. And it's brilliant. The traditional culture is important but so are the changes that affect the music every day. Without it, I would be playing the same 12 bands over and over again. As for Ed Miller, I love that theory. And I have a few vague memories of him cracking jokes about bagpipes which may confirm your hypothesis. If you're like Ed Miller or just like Ed Miller's music, he has a radio program called Across the Pond. It comes out on Sundays from 6-8 PM on Sunradio in Austin.

If you need help choosing the artists I can aid you and I'm sure a lot of people could help. Um abraço do Brasil!" Miranda Nelson emailed: "Hi Marc! I just wanted to let you know I have been listening to the podcast since St. Patrick's Day when I found it through my favorite local band The Selkie Girls. I fell in love with it and I had to hear more. I decided to listen to every one, all the way back to #1. I can now say I've listened to every one of the Irish & Celtic Music Podcasts.

Enjoy music from Blarney Castle, Runa, and Keltricity. http://louisvilleirishfest.com.   Notes * Helping you celebrate Celtic culture through music. My name is Marc Gunn. I am a Celtic and Geek musician and podcaster. This podcast is dedicated to indie Celtic music. These are the bands who are usually trying to make it without a record label. I have a caveat about that today. I'll tell you about it in a moment. I want to ask for your help to bring these artists the attention they deserve by sharing the show with your friends. You can find more episodes at celticmusicpodcast.com. And you can support for this show on Patreon. There are a lot of small record labels who are doing great things for Celtic musicians. One of those is Temple Records. That's the label of Battlefield Band. In addition to releasing music by Battlefield Band, the label also helps small artists who are doing great things for Scottish music. Like Christine Primrose. About the time I was finishing up the 2-hour Scottish Music show, episode #317, Temple Records sent me music from Christine Primrose. She sings in Scots Gaelic I thought she'd be a great addition to the show. I asked if they had any other music. But I didn't receive anything until the day after I published the show. So today, I'm gonna highlight several artists from Temple Records, including the first band. * CELTIC PODCAST NEWS I want start by thanking everyone who picked up the 2017 Sainted Song Henger Special and collected the 10 bonus CDs from my Celtic music arhive. I really appreciate your support of this show. The collection is still on sale along with podcast t-shirts, but of course, you'll have to do without the bonus CDs. You can find all of our swag and compilation CDs in our store at http://bestcelticmusic.net/shop/  The Irish & Celtic Music Podcast exists on the generosity of our Patrons of the Podcast.

Tony Becket setup this website "to restore awareness, celebrate and preserve the culture and history of Celtic Americans by promoting live Celtic music, festivals, history & ancestry." He's working primarily with Northern California Celtic performers. And he has a YouTube channel which could use your love.  Celtic music and culture is a relatively small community. I mean, if all of the Scottish, Irish, and Welsh ancestry people united, we'd have one heck of a cultural impact. Instead, it's limited mostly to St. Patrick's Day. That's a shame. So I'd like to ask your help of spreading the word about AmeriCeltic. And I'd also encourage you to start your own local Celtic community. Help get the word out about your musicians and cultural organizations. Let's keep Celtic culture growing! And if you have a local organization, let me know. I'd be happy to either mention it here, or better yet, list it in our Celtic Music Magazine. * I WANT YOUR FEEDBACK: What are you doing today while listening to the podcast?

I came from Paris to support Ben for a historical fencing competition followed by walking across the west coast of Ireland. Sadly I just lost my personal phone so I had no music to listen to and no Internet outside of our B&B. So I was looking for some podcasts. I discovered yours! It was a pleasure to listen to your playlist all week, during the competition and then on the wonderful cliffs of Black Head walking to Moher, in the bus to Dublin, in the plane back to Paris and finally, in my tub with a little tear thinking about this incredible trip and awesome people. Thank you for being a part of this. I'll continue to listen to your podcast until the next time ! Best, Charlie" Zak Kennedy emailed: "I listened to Episode 319 while mowing my yard and a few other chores around the house. I have also played other episodes while driving for my local transit agency. Had a few people ask what I was listening to and said they enjoyed it.

I've been listening to your podcast for a few years now, and have always loved discovering new bands and artists every week. Last night, I had the wonderful opportunity to go see a show by a band called the Recollective, a fairly new Celtic group. I wasn't sure if you'd heard of them, but if not, you should definitely check them out!! They played an outstanding concert, and they were all very lovely people. Thanks so much for all your hard work in creating your awesome show! Cheers" Hank Woodward emailed: "Hi Marc, Just want to pass along another huge thank you for all you do in bringing us wonderful music through the Irish & Celtic Music podcast. Also wanted to relate a great musical experience I got to share with my son Jackson (rising 9th grade violist) about a month ago. We got to see Mithril perform with the local Johnson City (TN) Symphony Orchestra. I got to talk a bit with the fiddler, Tom Morely, and let him know that I first heard their music on the Irish & Celtic Music podcast. The performance was doubly special to us, as three of the performers in the orchestra we know personally through the music school (Suzuki Talent Education of Appalachia), where my son and I take our viola lessons. Thanks again for continuing to bring us all the fantastic music on the Irish & Celtic Music podcast.

One of the coolest things about the trip for me was learning more about the Celts before they settled in seven Celtic nations. I emailed my Celtic Invasion Vacations subscribers telling them I was considering adding another Invasion to Venice. One person responded saying it made no sense. Because what does Venice have to do with the Celts. The answer is a lot more than you would think. In fact, we learned in Brittany that one of the main Celtic tribes to settle the area near Vannes were the Veneti. If you follow the place names of where the Celts settled, one area was the Veneto. My step-dad is from Padova in the Veneto. Ever since I started playing Celtic music, he's experienced the Celtic influence in the Veneto which settled the region in the 9th and 10th century B.C. By the 3rd century b.c. they had migrated to Brittany in France. There's even a Po River in Carnac. The Po River is one of the main rivers in the Veneto. The list goes on and on. I'll try and do an episode of The Celtfather podcast with more details. Needless to say, it was a fascinating glimpse of history. It's amazing to realize Celtic culture can be found throughout Europe. If you want to experience more of the trip, I recorded a bunch of videos and set them to my music. There's a playlist on YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLW2ZqJYHA7BDmERZdMQz-HBtz4I-zn5SV * I WANT YOUR FEEDBACK: What are you doing today while listening to the podcast?
