I’m looking for some good stories to share on our companion podcast. Pub Songs & Stories is a Virtual Public House for musicians to share the stories and inspiration behind their music.

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. Learn more about the invasion at

Peter Bengtson emailed a photo: "I was on one of my neighborhood walks this morning, listening to episode #518 - An irish cottage.  I enjoyed the music and the weather was pretty cool to start.  This is the most impressive mail box I have ever seen.  Be sure and zoom to get a good view of the face."

Margreta Silverstone emailed a photo: "Thanks Marc, I’ve enjoyed listening to your podcast for the past six months or so - not really sure how I found you but glad I did. Two things:

-I would love if you’d include Jennifer Cutting’s work (ocean orchestra/ocean quartet) in an upcoming podcast

-here’s a photo of something I am often doing while listening (I love to make celtic inspired purses, wallets and bags for my Etsy shop - MargretaMadeIt)"
