Celtic Music Magazine: Halloween/Samhain

Celtic Music Magazine

Greetings my friends

I can't believe it's already November. This year has just flown by. And I think I only missed one week of the podcast. *knock on wood* Though, the big challenge starts this week. I am performing for the next six weekends at the Louisiana Renaissance Festival. I always find it toughest to keep podcasts running when I'm on the road. So here's hoping I can stay on top of the show.

I'm excited about the festival because I'll be a part of new band called Kilted Kings. It's me and Randy Wothke of The Rogues. We're gonna do our own take on Celtic music. It's the power and energy of The Rogues with my fun drinking songs. How can it go wrong? You can hear more about it in The Celtfather podcast right here. Or click here to listen to it on iTunes.

Incidentally, The Celtfather is now a straight-forward audio blog. That means, there's less news about what's happening in my life and more about a specific topic covering everything from Celtic music to geek music to parenting, and even marketing tips for indie authors and musicians. I touch on many of the things that I know and love all in one blog. Subscribe and listen at www.celtfather.com.

Last week's episode of the podcast was a feature on Celtic Halloween. We had a great time for Halloween. My family was all dressed up as super heroes. You can see the pic on Facebook.

I also released a Celtic Halloween Music Special of my own on YouTube. It's a 30-minute live performance you can enjoy when you've got a moment.

Finally, I think I fixed the RSS feed problem that has been plaguing the podcast. Check your feed today to see if you received the last few shows in your podcatcher. And please let me know!

Thank you once again for supporting the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast and enjoy the latest show.

Marc Gunn, The Celtfather
