I consider myself very fortunate. I have a wonderful family, great friends, and awesome folks like you listening and sharing my show and music with the world. I am truly blessed.
But I often think about our Scottish and the Irish ancestors. They didn't have it so well. They were persecuted, hunted, and hurt. Life was much different for the Celts, even 100 years ago as the Irish fought for independence.
For that reason, I consider it important to help out, not just my fellow Celts, but all those who are struggling and persecuted for being different. I believe it's imperative to help the little guy. That's what this podcast is about.
There are so many bands that have money or the support of big record labels. They don't need this tiny podcast. That's why I prefer promoting the indie Celtic bands, the ones who need a helping hand to make an impact. This show is dedicated to the less-fortunate with the hope that together we can improve their fortunes.
Enjoy great Irish and Celtic music from Culann's Hounds, Poitin,Season's Melody (Melanie Gruben), The Irish Experience, Sligo Rags, Cormorant's Fancy, Ken O'Malley, Merry Wives of Windsor, Flook, 3 Pints Gone, West of Mabou, O'Hanlons Horsebox, Beatnik Turtles, Blaggards, Celtica Pipes Rock. Listen, like, and share it with your friends.Find their websites in the shownotes.
Have a great week. Slainte!
