    WELCOME TO CELTIC MUSIC

    * Helping you celebrate Celtic culture through music. My name is Marc Gunn. I am a Celtic musician and podcaster. This show is dedicated to the indie Celtic musicians. Please support these artists. Share the show with your friends. And find more episodes at celticmusicpodcast.com. You can also support this podcast on Patreon.

    I have a very special request. In order to play bands on this podcast, I have to have their permission. In the past, I needed their permission for each individual album that they released.

    That’s rather confusing for most artists. So, I recently updated my permission form. When an artist submits their music now, That permission form is good until 2025. So all new music they submit can be played on the podcast.

    I am slowly reaching out to past artists on this show who have new music. But of course, there are hundreds of artists who were played on this podcast.

    If one of your favorite musicians has released a new album in the past five years, can you do us all a favor and ask them to submit their permission to the podcast. After you email them, drop me an email and tell me the name of the band. I will reach out to them and see if I can get their new music on the show.

    ATTN Celtic Musicians. I’m looking for some good stories to share. You see, I also host the Pub Songs Podcast. I started sharing stories from musicians about their songs. I’d like to do more of those. So if you have a story that you’d like to share about a song, from a gig, or maybe even just a piece of Celtic history that you love. Drop me an email at marc@marcgunn.com. Put “Pub Story” in the show subject. Tell me about your story. Maybe I’ll ask you to record your story for the show.

    THANK YOU PATRONS OF THE PODCAST!

    Because of Your kind and generous support, this show comes out every week. Your generosity funds the creation, promotion and production of the show. It allows us to attract new listeners and to help our community grow.

    As a patron, you get to hear episodes before regular listeners. When we hit a milestone, you get an extra-long episode. You can pledge a dollar or more per episode and cap how much you want to spend each month over on Patreon. And starting in August, Song Hengers will get talk-free episodes.

    Martin here, found out about this show from listening to your Songs from the Verse Firefly podcast! Remember? Supposed to have you guys on my show SiberCast to talk Firefly sometime!

    Thought I'd share this with ya...just bought an electric bike to commute to work to save on gas money and mileage on my Jeep. It's about 40km and an hour ride, so I bought a bike helmet with speakers built in and Bluetooth connectivity, so I can listen to stuff during the journey...well your show is perfect listening for the Alberta countryside as I ride and it's about the same length too! Thanks for coming along with me! :)"

    THANK YOU PATRONS OF THE PODCAST!

    It is because of you that I release this show almost every week. But I want to let you know about a big change this coming to the Song Hengers on Patreon.

    I started Song Henge in 2006. It was a way to support the podcast when amazing services like Patreon were not available. I sent Song Hengers an album per month of free MP3s from some of the artists on the show. I released 168 of those albums over the past 15 years thanks to the generosity of the musicians on this show.

    When I started the Patreon page, I continued that feature for everyone who pledged $5 or more per episode. There are over 60 albums currently available for Patrons.

    However, the world seems to be moving away from MP3s. So I decided to discontinue that service at the end of this year. It’s time for a change.

    I still want something special for Song Hengers. That has finally come. Starting in August, Song Hengers will get a talk-free episode, much like the Sleepytime episode that was released in May. I’ll introduce the show, you can listen to the music straight through for about an hour, then I’ll remind listeners to look up the artists.

    Each episode will also include complete shownotes and chapters so you can easily skip around to the artists you enjoy, just like regular episodes. Because I DO want you to keep visiting these artists. But it’ll be much more music focused.

    You can become a generous Patron of the Podcast on Patreon at SongHenge.com.

    Peter Bengtson emailed: "Hi Marc,

    Thanks for the personal message welcoming me to the magazine & Podcast.  I only bumped into the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast a couple of weeks ago.  I'm retired and listen to music quite a lot. I started out listening to folk & bluegrass music.  Sometime in the 90s I sort of switched to classical music and opera.

    The Covid restrictions have pushed me into taking long walks every day.  I live in Tucson AZ, so these days I have to start walking at sunrise (5:30) these days.  I usually walk for about 2 hours.  Yesterday I listened to your Celtic Women #503 on the first half of the walk.  The second half to Aria Code (opera).  On the drive home I listened to Symphony Hall on SeriusXM.  I enjoyed all three.

    I really don't like "recurring donations"  If you are a tax deductible organization with a Tax identification number, I can make a donation from my charitable account.  If you are not a tax deductible organization, I can send you a check.

    I'm looking forward to reading the Celtic Music Magazine and listening to your podcast."

    Juan Manuel Herrera emailed: "¡Hola, Marc!

    I'm listening to the #509 while trying to organize the rest of my year activities, in a cold night here in Tandil, Argentina. I always loved celtic sounds. When I listened to your podcast for the first time last year I immediately liked it. It's wonderful!

    Thank you! ¡Muchas gracias! ¡Saludos!"

    Shel O'Toole emailed: "I thoroughly enjoyed today's show. From the opening tune to the beautiful song that you left us with.

    As I soaked up the sun through my front window the sounds of my culture brought my soul alive and my whole being smiles. Thank you. Warmly, Shel"

    I remember when your daughter was first born. You ask what we are doing while listening to the Irish and Celtic Podcast. I listen several times throughout the week, but my favorite time is when I walk my kayak upriver in Fairbanks, Alaska, and paddle back to my neighborhood. This usually takes about three hours total, so I enjoy listening to all the great artists featured in your podcast. Thanks for continuing to introduce me to various groups and keep up the great work.

    PS: You can see my tattoo of the Irish flag in the photo.”

    Dennis McLaughlin emailed from Boise, Idaho: “I just wanted to send a shout out about this week's podcast. I recently became a $5 an episode patron after just being a listener for a while.   As I sat listening to this week's music it was a rainy day here in Boise Idaho and the music was perfect!  I picked up some new artists to follow (Eira, Beth Patterson, and Thomas Patrick Kenny) as well.

    I am a musician and have played drums with our local pipes and drums bands and always appreciate the great independent artists that play at our local Celtic festival which has unfortunately been canceled last year and looks like this year as well.

    I also maintain the website for the Western USA MacLachlan Clan.

    Thanks for all you do concerning things Celtic music, pubs and travel.”

    John Pomeroy emailed: "Hi Mark, greetings from the east coast of Canada. I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your podcast each week. As the music plays and I come across a song that gets into my head I jot down the time and head over to iTunes to download it. I have a pretty good playlist put together!

    I often listen to the Irish and Celtic Music podcast when I work on my genealogy research. My father's roots are deep in Cape Breton and the west coast of Scotland before that. I often think about what my ancestors' lives were like when I listen to the music on your podcast. In my research I came across a great photo on the Isle of Rum in the Inner Hebrides. It shows a woman touching a large rock called the "Emigrants Stone." I thought that would be a great title for one of your podcasts dedicated to those Irish and Scots who were forced from their homes and scattered to the many corners of the world. In any case, thanks for the work that you do and keep it up! Slainte!"

    Chris Streeper emailed a couple a pictures from Medina, OH: "Marc,  My name is Chris Streeper. I make my living as an Over the Road Truck Driver, what they call in Europe & Ireland a "Tramper." I am always in search of good content to help fill my 11-14 hr day on the road. Recently I found your podcast am very grateful to be able to listen to great Irish & Celtic music throughout my day. I began listening at episode #496 and have been working through the back catalog. It has indeed been a much needed catharsis for me. Thank to you and all the artists who make this show possible. Sláinte,

    P.S. Attached are a couple pictures of me enjoying my pipe in my truck while I listen to the podcast."

    ATTN Celtic Musicians. I’m looking for some good stories to share. You see, I also host the Pub Songs Podcast. I started sharing stories from musicians about their songs. I’d like to do more of those. So if you have a story that you’d like to share about a song, from a gig, or maybe even just a piece of Celtic history that you love. Drop me an email. Put “Pub Story” in the show subject. Tell me about your story. Maybe I’ll ask you to record your story for the show.

    I WANT YOUR FEEDBACK

    What are you doing today while listening to the podcast? You can send a written comment along with a picture of what you're doing while listening. Email a voicemail message to celticpodcast@gmail.com

    woodland folk emailed: "Being spooked by various attempts to "move on" caravans is part of life....Ur music is a freind to me, more than i think u realize, the last year was like sailing in a storm... Thank u"

    and also: "Was wondering if any of ur artists would consider publishing any short reels,jigs or solo pieces( own versions )as music scores(abc other) how they may write a score in ur show notes or such,just extracts... Ok if not my friend, just putting it oit there #,-)"

    Juliette Ling emailed: "Hi Mark! I've written before, but I wanted to send another email to thank you again for all of your work with this podcast - it has been a significant source of comfort for my family and me over the last year.

    In addition to the common challenges of the pandemic, my husband and I welcomed a baby boy into our home in December of 2019, and so we've been quarantined in our home for over 15 months now. The music in your podcast, along with your humor, insights, and positive energy have been such a bright light for us. Suffice it to say, there are many days when we are encouraged by your art - we've even begun a tradition of listening to your Don't Go Drinking with Hobbits album during the mornings of our annual Eat Like a Hobbit/Lord of the Rings marathon day!

    And finally, some of your recent episodes have introduced us to the phenomenal work of Brad Tuck; his songs have become some of my son's favorites and are now often playing on repeat. I cannot thank you enough for giving us an opportunity to take a break from The Wheels on the Bus and Baby Shark!

    Thank you again for all that you do! I've been a long time listener and look forward to enjoying your work for years to come! Warmly,"
