As an added bonus, you'll get Celtic Heartstring Christmas ornament. These beautifully designed ornaments are handmade by Marc Gunn, your podcast host. Each is 100% unique and made from the broken strings of my heart... I mean autoharp.
If you order in November 2018, I will also toss in three Celtic CDs from my archive. These albums were ripped to my computer. I no longer need them. But I'm certain that you will love them.

Jigs in the Key of P...
Irish Music Stories is back with an all new episode. This month, Shannon talks to John Williams and Matt Heaton to uncover the secret formula for parent-performers. Hint: it works for non-parents, too. Learn two unique approaches to keeping the music (and the insight factory) going strong, while still tucking in to family—and while still being home to tuck kids in at night. Listen.
New Celtic Music...
New Celtic CDs from Lissa~Käthe, Ted Mcgraw, Colm Keane, Christel, Early Spirit. The Stubby Shillelaghs, James Linden Hogg, Matt Creer, Ed Miller's Folksong Tours of Scotland, Drunken Irish Bastards, @Rakish, Penny Opry, and BlueBeard & C. R. Bryan. Find links here.
Farewell to Nova Scotia...
Another live performance by Kilted Kings of this awesome song. It was performed live at the Mid-South Renaissance Festival. Watch.
