    TRAVEL WITH CELTIC INVASION VACATIONS

    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.

    June 3 - 10, 2023, I am leading a Celtic Invasion of County Mayo, Ireland. We’re gonna visit Westport and Clare Island. We’re gonna discover some of the roots of Grace O’Malley, the famous, or infamous, Pirate Queen.

    That’s all the details I currently have for the invasion. If you want to find out more, subscribe to the mailing list at http://celticinvasion.com/

    And do so soon, because the trip is already nearly full.

    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

    Alexander Randall 5th emailed: “Marc: I was delighted to hear the Achendoun set by Chivalrous Crickets. Their handling of the Bonnie Prince Charlie March is the best I have ever heard. It is so energetic that I began to think, "If I were on my death bed, I'd want to hear this. If my hand taps my thigh, then I am still alive, but if not, then I am dead."

    This got me to thinking what would my "deathbed playlist" include? If I am in hospice and on the verge of death and a band were to come into my room to play music, what would I want on that list?

    The Chivalrous Crickets playing this Auchendoun set would top the list.

    St. Anne's Reel would be next.

    Capricalle playing Argyle Ladies is third...

    Miller's Maggot

    All from your podcast!!!

    I wish I could get a read on the third part of this attached tune. It starts as the humoresque and ends with one of the coolest riffs ever... The liner notes say "An Old Man Comes in and Sits Down" I wish I knew where to find other versions of this...

    Thank you for reading what your listeners say.”

    He followed that up with another email: “The Old Man Walks Into The Room And Sits Down’

    I found one recording of this by Celtic stone.

    DId anyone else record this?”

    Woodland Folk sent pictures of what he described as Eden. See those pictures in the shownotes.

    Margaret Zavala messaged on Facebook: "I enjoy your podcast very much. I’m busy cleaning my house or working in the garden when I listen to your music either on my Bluetooth speaker or headphones the neighbors enjoy the music to when I have it on the Bluetooth. I hear you’re making a new album about the hobbits. Did you know Leonard Nimoy did a song about Bilbo Baggins? I know it’s not in a Celtic tune but it’s still a hobbit"

    woodland folk sent several pictures and emailed: "have any of ur artists versions of "paddy Fahey's" reels or jigs... a curious beginner, thank u, obvi a bit cheeky but had to ask..."

    I’m recording this Saturday night after visiting and performing at the Middle Tennessee Highland Games and Celtic Festival. I had an amazing time. It’s been a while since I’ve been to some highland games. They did a brilliant job organizing it.

    I got to hang out with Kris Colt, The Secret Commonwealth, Clare Cunningham, Colin Grand - Adams, and Flatfoot 56. Everyone was just spectacular. I also got to meet several listeners, including one of our Celtic Legends, Shawn Cali. Congrats on your upcoming marriage!

    I captured a little bit of audio from the event that I hope to share. But for now, I’m winding down and heading back to my home in Atlanta, Georgia. Hopefully, I can do this again sometime.

    Elizaveta Lapteva sent photos: "Hi, Marc!

    My name is Liza and I am from Russia (unfortunately), I have recently discovered your podcast and I would like to say thank you for what you are doing. I love Celtic music, songs and dances, also picked up some piano notes when visiting Scotland. Utterly magnificent sounds and composition. I enjoy listening to your podcast while I am walking through the woods near my country house or collect berries there. It helps me to escape from the harsh reality and just meditate in the great outdoors.

    I sent you some photos of our my favourite places"

    Thank you for emailing Liza. I appreciate you sharing those beautiful photos. And I hope you stay safe in this terrible period of history.

    Rex Edwards emailed: “Marc. Long time fan and podcast subscriber. You provide the modern and I’m a long time supporter of Alan OLeary and his trad podcast on liveIreland.com which I think has hit hard times.  He has great connections to the old timers.  Don’t know if you’ve heard of him but any visibility you could give him would be great.  He’s always asking to share with friends but that would require me making friends. Your show is a great delight and many thanks.  Rex”

    WELCOME CELTOPHILE TO CELTIC MUSIC

    * Helping you celebrate Celtic culture through music. I am Marc Gunn. I’m a musician and podcaster. You can support the artists in this show, please buy the music you enjoy. You will find a link to all of the artists, along with show times and chapters for each song when you visit our website at celticmusicpodcast.com. You can also support this podcast on Patreon.

    We are enjoying the music of the women of Celtic music this week on the podcast. There are some who continue to devalue women and strip them of their rights. But this podcast believes strongly that women too need representation. That’s why I play at least one podcast a quarter highlighting the women of Celtic music. And I’ll be honest. That’s not nearly enough.

    FairPle is an organization based in Ireland that seeks to achieve gender balance in the production, performance, promotion, and development of Irish traditional and folk music. They advocate for equal opportunity and balanced representation for all. A recent look at the top festivals in Ireland revealed that less than a quarter of all musicians featured at festivals were women. Headliners are even less.

    And I get it. Again, I do this feature on women in Celtic music every quarter. That’s not a lot. I hope to increase the number of these shows and to continue to highlight Celtic women. But it’s a tough process with my time constraints. If you have ideas or suggestions or want to help, make something happen, please drop me a line.

    And make sure you sign up for the FairPle.com website for more details about the work they are doing.
