* Helping you celebrate Celtic culture through music. My name is Marc Gunn. I am a Celtic and Geek musician and podcaster. This show is dedicated to the indie Celtic musicians. I want to ask you to support these artists. Share the show with your friends. And find more episodes at celticmusicpodcast.com. You can also support this podcast on Patreon.

The Irish & Celtic Music Podcast is here due to the generosity to not only our kind Patrons of the Podcast, but also to the generosity of Celtic musicians. Artists give us permission to play their music on our show. If you know of a Celtic artist that you think should be featured on the podcast, there's two things you can do. First, email the artist. Ask them to submit at 4celts.com. The form is quick and easy. They'll find out how to send music directly to the podcast. Second, drop me an email. Tell me you emailed the artist. And I can check in with them in a couple weeks.

Is Celtic Travel a priority in your life? It should be. I have an episode of Celtfather Music & Travel that talks a little about making it an important part of your life. Find the link in the shownotes. Starts at 4:57


Every year, I take a small group of Celtic music fans on the relaxing adventure of a lifetime. We don't see everything. Instead, we stay in one area. We get to know the region through it's culture, history, and legends. You can join us with an auditory and visual adventure through podcasts and videos. Join the invasion at http://celticinvasion.com/


The Irish & Celtic Music Podcast is supported by listeners like you. Your generous pledge helps pay for the production and promotion of the podcast and its artists, as well as my time in producing it. Patrons get episodes before regular listeners, discounts on merch, and when we hit a milestone, you get a two-hour special.

Jeffree St.John emailed: "Thank You! Love the show, I’m a stay at home dad and usually listen to it while I’m cooking or cleaning, dancing with my three year old or just wishing I could take a break. Lived in N Ireland as a young lad back in the early 80’s, and listening to the show reminds me of that part of my childhood. Plan on supporting the show. More later. Gotta run now the youngest is waking up. Keep up the great work."

James commented on the website: "I am cruising thru Cavan, Ireland on Google Earth while sitting at work doing anything but work. My mother discovered that our family is from that area and were flax farmers back in the day. I have been listening to your podcast for over a year, but now it calls me home even more! Thank you for all the work you do to bring the podcast to us daydreamers."
