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 its culture, history, and legends. You can join us with an auditory and visual adventure through podcasts and videos.

In 2024, we’re going on a Celtic Invasion of Northern Ireland and the Isle of Man. Learn more about the invasion at #celticmusic #irishmusic #celticmusicpodcast

Metta RavenHeart replied: "Thanks for the offer. Generally, I listen to your amazing podcasts when I am making my morning brew; or I am jeeping to my next hike here in the mountains of southwestern New Mexico.

I will spend St. Patrick’s Day celebrating the coming of Spring and the sprouting of my clover lawn. Who knows, maybe I will find a four leafer!"

Steve & Jane emailed: "Mostly just listening..and enjoying the music and wishing I could play like that.

Cooking bangers and mash. St Paddy parade March 10 and St Augustine Celtic Festival March 10&11, and St Paddy celebration in Ponte Vedra FL on Sunday March 19, watching TV to see Chicago River and Hillsborough River in Tampa died green"

Steve Marlow emailed: "Hi Marc , While I'm listening I am sitting on my narrowboat (my home) and perhaps doing little jobs? On St Patrick's day I will be in my local drinking a Guinness and listening to an Irish band ( local guys)"

Nannette Billings replied: "I  usually do house cleaning.  For St Pats day I'm making traditional Corned beef and cabbage and doing what I do any other day .🍀"

zachary gunter messaged me on Patreon: "Hey Marc, I was introduced to irish music through an album done by the 97th regimental string band. They focus on american civil war music. But on one of their albums, Irish chanty, if i remember right. I gained an appreciation for the irish/celtic genre.

Not sure if its possible, but if there was an episode based off of irish music focused on war songs sung in battle that would be an awesome episode.

Thank you for everything you do, ive been listening for years now off and on, and it never fails to make my day brighter."
