New CDs of 2018
Years ago, I hosted the Renaissance Festival Podcast. I no longer run the show, but it's still going strong. It's now in its 15th season too. Just incredible! The latest episode features new CDs released by Renaissance festival artists. And as you may know, there's a LOT of Celtic music performed at Ren faires. So I highly recommend this podcast, especially if you've ever been to Ren faire.
Music from Van Morrison & The Chieftains, Danu, Ralph McTell, Brendan McAuley, The Gloaming, Niamh de Buca, Eamon Friel, Gnoss and more! Listen now.
Middle Tennessee Highland Games...
My apologies to Rich of MTHG. He's been emailing me so I could let musicians know they are looking for bands. Alas... they might be booked up.
Rich emailed: "Hey Marc, Enjoying the podcasts and emails. I’d like to post a call out for band submissions. On your email and podcasts for www.midtenngames.com. I think your followers may have suggestions. Of great performance bands for our two day festival Sept 7&8 and we may still have two paid slots available."
If this sounds interesting, please contact them. And don't miss the games in September! Visit the site.
New Celtic Music...
New Celtic CDs from Paddyman, Keith Murray, Dustin Cooper Music, and Brennan McLaughlin. Find links here.
