Spotify Celtic Playlist Updated...
I finally did it. I updated our Top Irish & Celtic Music playlist on Spotify. It now features songs and tunes that were voted on by you in the Celitc Top 20. It has over 100 tracks from shows from 2012-2018. I'm still updating it.
I started the playlist this time last year. We now have over 280 subscribers. It's still a small group compared to the thousands of some playlist. But it's growing. Follow the playlist now.
What's the Celtic Legacy in the English language?
I found the History of English podcast this week. This episode talks about the Celts of Britain by following the language. Listen.

A castle, a Manor House and Wool...
Thatched cottages are a draw to the village of Adare, and once you’re there….”Adare ya” to tour the Adare Manor House. It’s at the end of the town, it’s really a treat to see and it has an amazing history. Listen on Erin's Isle.
New Celtic Music...
New Celtic CDs from Shannon Quinn, Ailsa Villegas - Singer, and Liam O'Hara. Find links here.
Sponsoring Savannah Irish Festival...
The Irish & Celtic Music Podcast is a proud sponsor of the Savannah Irish Festival. 10% of all the profits made by the podcast goes toward supporting Celtic non-profits. Usually I look for small Celtic festivals where we can do the most good and who also feature some of the artists who are featured in this podcast. I'm happy to see that Seamus Kennedy and Syr are both performing at the Savannah Irish Festival. If you'd like to win some free tickets to the festival. Please subscribe to our Celtic Music Magazine. And make sure you check out the festival website.
If you have know of a smaller Celtic festival who could use our support, please contact me.
