Listen to the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast


Today's the day. I have a few hours til my flight leaves. So I thought I'd wish you a lovely couple o'weeks. I have TWO guest hosts lined up for the coming weeks: Steve Behrens of 67 Music and the Celtic Music Journal, like I mentioned last week, and Phil Duckworth, the Grinning Beggar of Paddy Rock Radio. Yup. After Steve's show, Phil will share with you some Celtic Punk! I'm excited to share both of these shows. So get ready for something different from your regularly scheduled podcasting. :)

In the meantime, enjoy Irish and Celtic music from Poor Man's Fortune, An Triur, Castlebay, Pipedance, Karan Casey, Burning Bridget Cleary, Abby Green, The Changing Room, Bridgid's Cross, John Byrne Band, Damanta, Paddy's Pig, Seagulls Are Drunk, Flook. Read the Shownotes.

Don't for get to get your 2017 Irish & Celtic Music Podcast t-shirts.

Liam of Crikwater let me know that all of the old banners that were linking to the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast are now dead thanks to the server change a couple months back. My apologies. You can get newly updated graphics and links here.

Before I head out I want to invite you to follow my Celtic Invasion of Brittany. Subscribe to YouTubeInstagramFacebook, and  Celtfather Music & Travel podcast.

Thank you as always for supporting the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast. Slainte!

I WANT YOUR FEEDBACK -- What are you doing today while listening to the podcast? You can send a written comment along with a picture of what you’re doing while listening, or from one of your trips to one of the Celtic nations. You can also post a comment on iTunes.

PS. The Irish & Celtic Music Podcast comes out each and every week due to the generosity of people like you. Your kind pledge of as little as $1 per episode pays for the production of this podcast, as well as my time in producing the show. You get shows before regular listeners and my deepest thanks. When we hit a milestone, you get a 2-hour special. We are just $20 away from the next 2-hour special. I want to thank to our newest patrons:Rick Hantz, Ed Powel, Patrick Downey! Thank you all so much for your generosity! Become a patron today!

PPS. I know I keep going back and forth, but I decided it's just more work than it's worth to have TWO different YouTube accounts. So I decided to leave all of the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast shows on my personal YouTube channel. It's all about Music & Travel after all. So this should work great. Head to YouTube now to see if you are subscribed yet.
