With school back in session, I thought the students listening might enjoy some instrumental Celtic music for studying. Less talk, more music from The Here & Now, The Fretless, The Rowan Tree, Moonrakers, Spencer & Beane, Across the Pond, David Pedrick, Tom Eure, Atlantic Wave, The Gothard Sisters, Wicked Tinkers, Heavy Blarney, Serious Kitchen, Susan Toman, Poitin, West of Eden.

One of the things I love about the Celts is our generosity. We give with kindness and without expectation to the people and causes we believe in. Remember to support the artists who support this podcast: buy their albums, shirts, and songbooks, follow them on Spotify, see their shows, and drop them an email to let them know you heard them on the Irish and Celtic Music Podcast.

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.

2019 is the Celtic Invasion of Star Wars. 2020 is the Origins of Celtic Invasions. You can find out more about these two exciting trips. Join the invasion at http://celticinvasion.com/
