3-Hours of Rockin' Celtic Instrumentals

Celtic Music Magazine


It was a challenge to come up with three hours of rockin' Celtic instrumental music. But I did it... all for you. Thank you for your continued faith and sponsorship of the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast. We may not have one in this year's Podcast Awards (sadly), but we are changing your world with Celtic music. Happy #CelticThursday!

Yes, the Podcast Awards winners were announced last night. A big congrats to Coverville who won Best Podsafe Music again. It's a great show, but I'm confident that we will win next year. In fact, I setup a mailing list for next year's Podcast Awards. Subscribe and I will send you a notification when the nominations open up, and then I will send you daily notifications to vote, because you can vote once per day, every day. The list won't be used for any other purpose than to help us WIN in the Podcast Awards. So please subscribe.

I have one more small request from you. It's a survey I put up on the website where I ask the simple question: Where do you buy Celtic music online? You don't need an email address or anything. You just need to click one small button. It will help me a lot to know how I can serve you better.

Thanks for supporting independent Celtic music. Enjoy this week's show. And let me know if there's anything I can do for you.

Marc Gunn, The Celtfather

A giant welcome to Skip. He's our newest Patron of the Podcast. We now have 76 patrons contributing $207 per episode. This was the first month that all of the base expenses for the podcast were met. Thank you all for making that happen.

It's just the start of my plans for your donation. $250 is the next Milestone. When we reach that goal, I will donate 10% of the money to Celtic non-profits. At the end of 2013, I had donated over $20,000 to help our fellow Celts in their missions. We can do more.

Best of all, you will get another 2-hour show of Celtic music. So make a pledge right now. And for all you Song Hengers, I'll be sending out the latest edition next week.
