Listen to the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast


One of my favorite things about hosting the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast is the emails. Every week, I get a couple emails from people telling me how much they appreciate this show, Celtic music, or the culture. They share something important to them and how the podcast or Celtic music fits in. It's the sense of community that I feel from each of you who contribute your emotion to the show. It's inspirational.

Thank you so much for sharing your comments and pictures with me and our community. We celts are a kind and giving group. And it is important for us to unite together and to help our community and beyond. Thank you for inspiring me.
