Celtic Christmas Music for 2015


Greetings my friends

I am happy to announce that the Celtic Christmas Podcast officially launched for 2015. This podcast features 30 minutes of Celtic Christmas music by many of the musicians you love in the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast. If our Celtic artists have Christmas music, I ask them to submit.

I have two more shows planned for 2015. PLUS, I have a Celtic Christmas Music Special planned for next week that's part of our regular Irish & Celtic Music Podcast. That's about 2 1/2 hours of Celtic Christmas music for you to enjoy this holiday season.

Oh! And if you want to help the show get launched up the charts on iTunes, then post a short review. Let others know you love Celtic Christmas music.

Marc Gunn, The Celtfather

I WANT YOUR FEEDBACK -- Call 678-235-8763 or record an MP3 on your phone and email it to me at music@celticmusicpodcast.com. And please post a review on iTunes or Stitcher.

1. Feliz Navidad in Irish Gaelic of Celtic Christmas Podcast. A new season of Celtic Christmas music begins with new episodes of the podcast featuring Celtic Christmas songs and tunes from Ashley Davis, Liz Madden, Rathkeltair, Bonnie Rideout, John Munelly, Ken O’Malley, Marc Gunn, An Taisdeal. www.celticchristmaspodcast.com/40

2. Have you listened to my Celtic Christmas Greetings podcast? I'd love your feedback. Subcribe on iTunes or using the feed. There are some great stories and music in the show. You can get the corresponding CD here.

3. Did you download the Marc Gunn Celtic Music app (for Android only) last week? I'm trying to improve it for the next upgrade. Send me your feedback. And if you like the app, I'd love a review on Amazon.

4. "Fairytale of New York" by The Pogues is still one of my all time favorite Celtic Christmas songs. I just saw the video for the first time this week.

5. I think I forget to share this album review of Archie Fisher's new album, A Silent Song by Lahri Bond. Fisher is one of those Scottish singer/songwriter's you should know.

6. Found this great article about the wild and wonderful County Donegal that brought back some lovely memories from my Celtic Invasion of Donegal this past summer.

7. Big congrats to The Chieftains. Their Christmas album "Bells of Dublin" was #1 on the World iTunes Charts. Well worth owning as you'll see in this Best Celtic Christmas albums list on Amazon.

8. I posted a video of the Kilted Kings on YouTube. It's an original song. Hope you like!

9. What are you favorite Christmas songs?


Today’s show is brought to you by Celtic Invasion Vacations

Every year, I take a small group of Celtic music fans to exotic locations around the world. We don’t travel in big tour buses and see everything. Instead, we stay in one area. We get to Know the region through its culture, history, and legends. Plus, I bring you some great Celtic music by me and other Celtic artists. We’re going to Cornwall in 2016. Subscribe to the mailing list to join the invasion at celticinvasion.com




The Irish & Celtic Music Podcast exists due to the generosity of our Patrons. Special thanks to our newest Patrons: Parker and Steven.

When you donate as little as $1 per episode, you help pay for the production of the podcast and help me make a partial living as a professional podcaster. Because of our Patrons' generosity, I'm planning a 2-Hour Celtic Harp Music Special. Want to help plan the next two-hour special? Become a Patron of the Podcast today! celticmusicpodcast.com/patreon.

Patreon made a big change this week. When you check out the donations per episode, you will see the exact amount that is earned with each new episode of the podcast.

Oh! And thanks also to our Patrons, we have raised $367 for Celtic Non-Profits since we hit that Milestone a few months back. I plan to donate the money at the end of the year. You can see some of the recipients here (big update coming soon). Yes. I donate 10% of all the money earned on Patreon to Celtic non-profits.



Every week, I release my full list of New Celtic CDs that are out this week. You can find the complete list on our website at http://celticmusicpodcast.com/NewCelticCDs. Take a moment and listen to my Top 4 Picks.

Sweet Anne's Road

I wrote the original songs for the CD starting in January 2015. I thought I might record just a few songs to have something to sell or promote my live gigs but by the time we had recorded those I figured it was as well to do a full CD. I hope you like it.
