Honey Bunnies emailed a photo: "Working on my Christmas wreath."

Jessica Mulhollem replied to the Celtic Music Magazine: "Hi Marc, My favorite celtic bands include several people I am lucky to be friends with.  Dave Pedrick, who was on your last episode, the Kilmaine Saints, Hold Fast, and the Reel Sisters.  I also love Tim Cummings, a Scottish smallpiper whose current project is called Triton, and a fiddler called Sean Heely.

I love the podcast so far!  Can't wait to hear more."

Cindy Stiene emailed from Madison, AL: "So I bit the bullet and became a regular Patreon supporter today, instead of doing an annual contribution.  I’ve been a longtime subscriber to your Podcast via iTunes (maybe 10 years???? Or longer).  I’ve always enjoyed the mix you put together every week of new and old tune, new and favorite musicians and just your overall approach to this wonderful world of Celtic music. Keep up the good work!"

Forrest Iwanik emailed: "Hi Marc, I’ve been listening to your pod for a good while now and it’s helped me pass many a day of work here in a drinking water quality lab up in Massachusetts. I listen to a lot of Celtic music and I always find new stuff on your show, I really appreciate you giving voice to the new and lesser known artists. Listening to episode 481 today, I loved that track by NUA. Hoping to hear more by them! I am, as I’m sure we as a community are, badly missing the experience of live music so I’m especially grateful for shows like yours, Celtic Sojourn on WGBH, and Celtic Twilight on WUMB (both Boston stations) introducing fresh, high quality audio produce. Keep up the great work and know you’re helping keep some beauty in a lot of our lives in these dreary times."
