Today's show is brought to you by Celtic Invasion Vacations
Every year, I take a small group of Celtic music fans to exotic locations around the world. We don’t travel in big tour buses and see everything. Instead, we stay in one area. We get to Know the region through its culture, history, and legends. Plus, I bring you some great Celtic music by me and other Celtic artists. You can help me decide where we are going in 2017.

* Each week, 148 people pledge $1 or more per episode to help pay for the production of the podcast. Whenever we hit a Milestone, you get an extra-long episode of Celtic music. You can Become a Patrons of the Podcast and help us hit the next Milestone which will feature 2-hours of Celtic Women.
* So far the two Facetime Live shows are going great. Though I changed the date of the Celtic Music News show. It is now on Fridays. The New Celtic CDs show is on Monday. These are short 3-5 minute videos where I share what's new. If you want to watch subscribe on our Facebook page.
* I thought of another great way to help promote indie Celtic bands. I want to start sharing links to the albums of bands in the latest episode. Unfortunately, I really someone's help to make this work. It should only take about 30 minutes a week of your time. If you would like to help me promote indie Celtic music, drop me an email.
