Today's show is brought to you by Celtic Invasion Vacations
Travel will change your life. It opens your eyes to the mysterious and makes historical events come alive. In 2017, you can experience the culture, history and legends of Brittany with the next Celtic Invasion Vacation. You'll join a small group of 8-10 invaders who love Celtic music and culture like you, and who love to travel. Brittany is one of the seven Celtic nations and is located in Northwest France. The Breton language is related closely to Welsh and Cornish. Subscribe to the mailing list to join a Free Webinar in November on “Breaking Down the Celtic Travel Barrier”.

Kelly Rogers emailed: “Marc, I listened to your latest podcast about Irish music albums for kids and my first thought was to the band Scythian. Several years ago Alec and Dan the founding brothers of Scythian, released a kids album for their 25 nieces and nephews called Cake For Dinner. It's a nice mix of traditional Irish songs like South Australia and The Littlest Jig, as well as folk and campfire songs from the U.S., French Canadian, Italian, and Ukrainian. Check it out at http://cakefordinnermusic.com. Plus their newest album Old Tin Can, is a return to their folk roots. A great band for all ages. At last Friday's show in Philadelphia there was a 3yr old girl rocking out with her family. Thanks for the great podcasts and have a Happy St. Patrick's Day.”
Ashley Taylor sent a picture: “I actually just found this station about an hour ago searching for coyote run. I met them almost 10 years ago. I am from Greeneville, Tennessee and currently work on my 3 year olds costume. She is gonna be a viking and I'm painstakingly working on making a fur halfskirt from yarn. Have come to really like this station and will defanetly listen more. Attached is what yarn I have converted”
Annie Lorkowski wrote on Facebook: “I was listening to the podcast as my flight touched down in Dublin today. Sorry no picture. I'm too embarrassed to show what I look like after a 10 hour overnight flight. Slainte!”
