Listen to the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast


I flew to Texas with my youngest daughter last week. My shows at Sherwood Forest Faire were a little rough though. The pollen left me with barely a voice as you heard in last week's show. I am mostly recovered now.

A new episode is here. There's a lot of new music. You'll enjoy music from Spirited Lads, Poitin, David Pedrick, New Shilling, Spencer Murray & Pipeslinger, Moonrakers, Old-Time Pharmaceuticals, Jil Chambless, Ed Miller, Scooter Muse, Gaelic Fury, Mandala Folk, The Kilt Lifters, Jimi McRae, Marys Lane, Dun Aengus.

Listen. Download. And please share the show!

I am planning an special podcast episode of one of my other podcasts, Celtfather Music & Travel. This one will be all about my annual Celtic Invasion Vacations. I want to break down what a trip is like and answer your questions. But to do that, I need your questions.

What would you like to know about traveling on a Celtic Invasion Vacation?
