    Huw Kinsella emaield: "Hello Marc, hope you are well. I would just like to let you know that i have been listening to your podcast for over 10 years! I lived in Qatar in the middle east from 2008 and recently returned home to Wales. I listen to your podcast while running and absolutely love it. Keeps me calm, as running can be quite tough in the hills of wales! I particularly love the Andrew Mcmanus song searching for the sun on elisode 493, but cant seem to find it anywhere to download. Anyway, thank you so much for your music, you will never realise just how much it means to me and i look forward to every thursday when i can download and listen! Have a great day, sending lots of love from Wales."

    David Scovel emailed a photo: "Hi Marc, I thoroughly enjoy the Podcast. I love Celtic Music. I listen to it while I split wood, walk our Boxer, or up on a ladder while washing windows.  Today I was Cross Country Skiing down by the CT River with my favorite girl (who has lots of English, Irish and Scot in her bloodline). Actually she’s more than a girl, she’s been by me side as a bride for 33 years! She’s starting to like the podcast more and more."

    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.

    We have a bit of a different show today. I told my graphic designer, Miranda Nelson, that the St Patrick’s Day show would be the 500th episode of the podcast. She thought about it and came back and asked, “would you mind if I collected some audio feedback from some of the artists on the show.”

    I said,” sure! That sounds great!” I’ll be honest, I didn’t expect much of a response.

    But I remembered that she suggested this when I started compiling this 500th episode. She forwarded me some feedback via email. I looked through them and didn’t see any audio. “Oh well,” I thought. “Less than I expected, but that’s fine.”

    Then I noticed one band mentioned something about including audio in their email. But I never got that. So I emailed and asked Miranda where that audio was. Her response, “it’s in the folder you set up on Google Drive.”

    Oh yeah! I did do that, didn’t I?

    I opened up the folder and was floored to find over 60 recordings by Celtic bands wishing me a  happy 500th episode. Wow!

    Ye know a couple pieces are easy to pop into an episode. But I didn’t think about how to include ALL OF THESE pieces? So what should I do for this show?

    Instead of me introducing bands and songs, I’m gonna let the artists do it themselves. I will play their congratulations as a way of introducing their music.

    Course that means if you want to find out the name of the song or tune, you will need to visit the shownotes at CelticMusicPodcast.com or just check your podcatcher. Because each track has a time stamp so you can easily look it up.

    That said, I’ll have a few moments to break up the music and say hi. But for the most part this is just music and congratulations. I want to thank Miranda Nelson Designs for all of her hard work in making this happen. Miranda has a whole bunch of Celtic shirt designs you should check out at mirandanelsondesigns.com.

    And I want to thank everyone who has supported this podcast over the past 16 years.

    And without further adieu, let’s meet the bands.

    THANK YOU PATRONS OF THE PODCAST!

    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.

    Anne Smith emailed a St Patrick's Day photo last year: "Dear Marc, Responding to your request for St. Patrick’s Day photos in the newsletter! My husband and I live in Deep East Texas, but on St. Patrick’s Day Eve, we had the rare and wonderful opportunity to see the Chieftains perform in the nearby town of Tyler, Texas! We wore our Celtic finery (photo attached) and enjoyed a splendid show. We also loved the opening act, an Irish/Americana/folk fusion group called Switchback. Thank you for all you do to promote Celtic music!"

    Steve Cahill sent a St Patrick's Day photo: "Having a great time holding onto a beautiful night St. Patrick’s Day 2019! Slainte!"

    Jan Czenkusch sent some St Patrick's Day photos from 2019: "After church we went to our son's soccer game.  Interestingly it was the green team (Celtic Cowboys) against the orange team (don't know their name)."
