* CELTIC PODCAST NEWS: You can now listen to the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast in our very own app available for Android AND iOS devices. This was a part of one of our big milestones last month. So this app is now FREE! It was developed by Libsyn and has some nice features which will allow you to easily share the show on social media and contact me as well.

Of course, if you’re on Android, you may also have the Marc Gunn Celtic Music app. Mine lacks the sharing features but you can also listen to my other podcasts including the Pub Songs Podcast, Renaissance Festival Podcast and The Celtfather.

* I want to send out a big thanks to the patrons of the podcast. Your generous pledge of as little as $1 per episode pays for the production of this podcast as well as my time in producing the show. You will enjoy a personal podcast feed where you can listen to the show before regular subscribers, occasional extended editions of the show, and my deepest thanks. When we hit a milestone, you get a 2-hour special. We are just $25 away from 2-hours of Scottish music. And of course, next week, we have a 2-hour retrospective coming your way. Thanks to our newest patron: Tony. Become a patron today!

Sytze Kamphuis posted in the shownotes: “Hey Marc, there is one Celtic Christmas song that I always play in the winter. It is not just one of the best Celtic Christmas songs I’ve ever heard, it’s one of the most beautiful songs I’ve ever heard, period. Seacht Suailci Na Maighdine Muire by Aoife ni Farragh from her album ‘Aoife’. Hope you get a chance to listen to it and I wish you and your family all the best for 2017.”

Jeffrey Evans emailed a picture: “On the Celtic postcast, you’re always asking what were doing when we’re listening. Normally, that is difficult for me since I’m either listen to new episodes at work and there is a strict rule about taking pictures inside the plant fence or I’m listening to some favorite episodes that I have permanently downloaded as I’m falling asleep. Not today. It’s probably the last decent day of the year for the Ohio Valley. I left work early and just sitting outside, cross stitching a celtic cross as a wedding gift for a friend as episode 154 plays.”

Alex Marling emailed: “Hello Marc I would like to say that I really enjoyed your Irish and Celtic pub songs from your #114th podcast it was great I live in Canada Ontario in a small town called innisfill. We are mostly farming but I am a high school student and whenever I have a bad day I just go and listen to your amazing podcast I also like to say that on YouTube you look like a wooky with long hair and your star wars song makes me laugh every time. Have a good day and keep it up your podcast is incredibly amazing.”

Allan Marcotte emailed a Christmas picture: “I enclose a picture of the star for the top of my tree and it is special. This is the same star that topped the Christmas trees that I grew up with back in the 60’s and 70’s. For years my younger sister had it but did not use it. A few years back I asked for it. Well this year for Christmas, I found that she had sent it to me. Talk about a wonderful surprise and a flood of memories. I want to wish you and your family a most Merry Christmas and joyous New Year”

Keep up the great work, sir!”
