    40:36 - CELTIC STORIES  -  ATLANTA IRISH DANCE

    My daughter started Irish dancing last year. She did her first Feis this month as a beginner and came in third place for Light Jig among 11 other kids. We were pretty excited.

    Before the Feis, I had a LOT of questions. I was not raised on Irish dance. I really know nothing about it. So last month, I contacted Emma Burke of Atlanta Irish Dance to find out more.

    Emma Burke was born in Dublin, Ireland and grew up in Atlanta. She is a former litigation attorney in the area and a classically trained flautist. Now she is co - founder of Atlanta Irish dance and is a certified Irish dance teacher and internationally certified Irish dance adjudicator, which allows her to judge Irish dance competitions world wide. During her Irish dancing career, Emma competed all over the world, winning titles throughout. Emma is also a four time Southern Region Champion, consistently placed top 5 in the North American Nationals, and competed in the World Championships of Irish dance many times where her highest placement was 13th, earning her a coveted World Medal.

    I asked her to tell me more about Irish dance.

    41:52 - WHAT IS IRISH DANCE?

    Since I also wanted to know what to expect at a Feis, I asked Emma what a Feis is and what happens at a Burke Connolly Feis. I’ll let her tell you more about it.

    45:51 - MORE ABOUT BURKE CONNOLLY FEIS

    If you want to learn more about Irish dance, the instruments they play and the types of dances they do, make sure you join us on Patreon. I will release an extended version of our interview in a week or so for Song Hengers.

    48:34 - Clover's Revenge "Raggle Taggle Gypsy" from Gotta Get O'Raggednized

    52:29 - Sons of Malarkey "Tripping Father" from Presenting Sons of Malarkey

    55:53 - Hugh Morrison "Down the Dunes" from Lift Your Head Up

    59:51 - Highlander Celtic Rock Band Australia "The Craic Fiddle" from North of the Wall

    1:04:19 - CLOSING

    1:06:00 - Clann An Drumma "Lion Tyrant" from Order of the Stag

My dads side of the family is predominantly Scottish and my moms side is all Irish so the Celtic blood runs deep in me. I love so much variety it’s hard to mail it down to five favorites but I’ll do my best and in no particular order. Cherish The Ladies, Across The Pond, The Pogues, The Cheiftains, and The Dubliners.

    I also help a friend of mine with his entertainment company, Shenanigator Entertainment. It gives me a chance to be behind the scenes to promote Celtic music and help out at festivals and concerts."

    WHAT’S NEW IN IRISH & CELTIC MUSIC: BEST OF 2022

    BUY SELCOUTH BY MARC GUNN

    My latest CD features Sci F’Irish music. That means it is original songs fusing pop culture themes with Irish drinking songs. There are some traditional music on the album. But mostly, it features songwriting by Marc Gunn with guests including: Screeched Inn, The Muckers, Jamie Haeuser, Sam Gillogly, Nathan Deese, and Mikey Mason.

    Selcouth means, “when everything is strange and different, yet you find it marvelous anyway.”

    The album is not completely Celtic and it’s not just science fiction and fantasy. It’s a fusion of the two. It’s heartfelt and a lot of fun.

    It’s now on sale in my Bandcamp store. Check out Selcouth now.

    Dawn Sayne Wilke posted on Facebook: "Excellent podcast, as always" for show #554.

    I asked a question about song requests on Facebook. The band Beltaine replied: "We love song requests because it is the songs that people love and have a special place in their hearts if we know it, we will play it....if not we will fake it to do our best for our fans that we want to make them happy!

    Finally I asked a question on Facebook: What does Celtic culture make you think of?

    Wolf Lüerßen responded: "Whisky and great music 🎶 Languages that sound magical even though I don't understand them, and brilliant literature. Did I say Whisky..."

    Andrei Dashko replied: "Music that you fall in love with right away. Dance with tied hands. Beautiful songs with female voices. Redheads."

    Rey Glunt commented on Facebook: "I was just listening to this one walking the dog tonight!! Good stuff!!"

    Eugene McDonnell emailed: "Hi Marc, how is Patreon connected to your Celtic Music Magazine?"

    Peter Bengtson sent a photo: "On my morning walk, this is only about 1/2 of the painted rocks at this house. Zoom in for detail"

    And another: "My morning walk close to the Catalina mountains. Beautiful sunny (but cold), listening to episode 548  -  very nice"

    Michael R. Gorman emailed: "Marc,

    I hope this email does not come across as too strange, but before about 45 minutes ago, I had never heard of you. I was searching Pandora for some traditional Celtic music to play as a background to a personal spring/renewal ritual I felt compelled to do on this cool California night. When I happened upon your Podcast #196, I immediately knew I had my background music. I thought your talking would be a distraction, but it was not at all, like an extension of the music of the ancestors.

    I won't go into detail about my ritual tonight, other than to say this ritual marks the end of a very long period of trial and pain in one of my life's dark valleys, but the thing about valleys is that there are always the hills beyond to climb if you can just keep walking. I did, and tonight is like a new birth from the cauldron of the Cailleach. I have not cut my hair in ten years until tonight (by no means short, but shorter), a show of faith in renewed growth, and to offer a red - blonde lock as tribute to the ancestors. I don't know much about you or what your spirituality may be, but I felt the need to thank you for being with me on this small milestone in my journey. I look forward to getting to know you better through your work. And thank you. Blessings of the Tuatha de,”
