Glimpse of Galician Celtic Music

Celtic Music Magazine


Welcome to all the new subscribers of the podcast and magazine, and thanks also to those of you who've been with me for so many years. Can you believe I've been publishing this newsletter since 2000? It's hard for me to imagine, but I wouldn't do it if you weren't such a regular reader. So thank you!

May is a big month for me. I'm calling it the Baby Watch Month, because my second daughter, Inara, is due on May 15th. I will spend most of the month at home, aside from one gig in Georgia. In fact, I have two Concert Window performances planned. The first is this Sunday at 7:30 PM. The second one I hope to introduce my daughter to the world. It's all extremely exciting. I'd love to have you join me on our journey. You can read updates in my blog at

I want to ask one more small thing before we get on with the news this week. Would you do me a favor and answer this one question survey? It will only take a moment and will help me to serve you better.

Thanks a million for all your support of indie Celtic music.

Marc Gunn, The Celtfather

If you missed last week's show...

It was an Earth Day special celebrating our planet with some great indie Celtic music from Bruce Boyd, Naomi’s Fancy, Karan Casey, NightinGael, Jed Marum, Dene Foye, Anne Roos, Bedlam, Michael Black, The Indulgers, Emerald Rose, Mater Dea, Lexington Field, Trip McCool, Runa.

You can leave a voicemail comment when you call 678-235-8763 or record an MP3 on your phone and email it to me at And of course you can always post a review on iTunes or Stitcher.

Remember. Cast your vote for your favorite songs in February, March, and April.




Right now, there 80 people donating over $229 per episode of thie show. I want to send out a big thanks to our latest patrons John Bilderback, Tifini, Amanda, and Bryan. You're the reason I dedicated myself to recording a weekly show with lots of cool specials. You rock!

We're not far away from the next Milestone. When we reach $250, 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.

Plus, you'll get another great 2-hour show. Do you love Celtic music? Show your support.
