TRAVEL WITH CELTIC INVASION VACATIONS 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.

Brad Thompson emailed photos: "Good evening, Mark! My wife and I listen to your podcast all the time, whether it’s driving to visit family, or just to chill in the living room. I’ve taken up home brewing, specifically mead, and naturally listen while working on it. Unfortunately, shipping alcohol is a nightmare, but if you can get to North Texas, I promise to leave you a bottle on our porch (because distancing, sorry). Thanks for all your hard work."


W. Ed Harris emailed: "Hey Marc! I just signed up to become a Podcast Patron.

I think it’s wonderful what you are doing and I am going to make every effort to be more engaged/supportive! I am a Celtic multi-instrumentalist and do everything myself throughout the recording/release process. I will be releasing my 8th album within the next few weeks and I have 100+ YouTube videos out. I believe you may have featured me in the past in that we follow on FB Page as well. I also had a tune aired on Celtic Roots Podcast very recently and wanted to take this opportunity in sending you the video link on the tune as well.

Again, Thanks so much for all you do and I look forward in getting more immersed in this wonderful culture (my heritage as well)! Sláinte my friend!"

Charlie Hunt emailed a photo: "Hi Marc, I absolutely love the show and am so proud to be a Patreon. Every week, your show brings me and my very good dog Rhody so much joy and contentment. Just look how relaxed he is! Your show is one of the best parts of our week, and I’m so thankful we have someone carrying on these positive, welcoming and inclusive Celtic traditions. PS - as much Runa as possible, please! Best, Charlie (and Rhody)"

Eric emailed some videos from his home: "Hi Marc. From time to time I listen to your podcast, which i think is really awesome - bringing the finest Irish and Celtic music to us and the world. A few episodes ago you asked about a possible location to go for. For quite some time I thought the region I live in could be a place you would like, but I always threw this thought away - not this time.

It is a very historical and very interesting place, but not as famous as Ireland or Scotland. Although the country looks a little similar and the music is also not far off. We even have our own dialect "Plattdeutsch" which is recognized as its own language.

I'm sure, now you are excited. I live in the northern part of Germany ca. 4km from the danish border, where I travel each day to work. In the past, this region often changed between Germany and Denmark. Originally it is the home of the Vikings with its trading center Haithabu (Hedeby in English), located at the end of the "Schlei", which is a fjord.

Haithabu is still a location, but nowadays it is a museum including a historical village and it belongs to the city of Schleswig.

Here, you can make yourself a picture of my home region, the Schlei: Video, Hedeby, World Heritage page.

There are some clubs in this region that keep the old way of living alive like in the village of Haithabu or in Wallsbüll (Valsbøl in danish) where each year the battle of Wallsbüll is shown.

There are some bands that play music in our dialect, but they are hard to find e.g. on YouTube. The local radio station may help to find them. Three times a week, in the evening this radio station broadcasts in our local dialect including such bands.

Hope you find my notes interesting. If you have questions, just let me know.

Slainte and have a great weekend!"
