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. We’re going to Scotland in 2021.

Howard Fisher emailed: "Marc, Greetings!  I first heard the wonders of Irish and Celtic music through my love of the Chieftains and the Pogues; but finding your podcasts was a revelation in more than one way.

Even though I had love for the music, I had no idea that I would also find a love for the autoharp.  Almost instantly I bought one and began online zoom lessons and although the first month or so has been difficult, my autoharp and I are now in the honeymoon phase and we are both falling in love with each other daily.  Thank you for inspiring me to take this on.  Your tune "Don't Go Drinking with Hobbits" is one of the first real songs that I am working on and I love singing and playing it.  Being a Tolkien fan, I can't wait to hear your new Hobbit songs.  Thanks for all the work that you do.  Take care.  Howard"
