TODAY'S SHOW IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY...
THE CELTIC INVASION OF THE ISLE OF SKYE

You can join me in Scotland in June 2018. Imagine joining a small group of eight Celtic music fans, driving in a van as we explore the  Isle of Skye. Some call it one of the most-beautiful islands in the world, with spectacular vistas, gorgeous castles and towns, fairy pools, and magic. We won't see everything. Instead, we will stay in one area, and get to know the region through its history, culture, and legends. Subscribe to the mailing list to join the invasion at http://celticinvasion.com/

Hannah McGuire emailed: “Hey Marc! When listening I am usually on my way to work, I drive 45 minutes up to Park City from Salt Lake. I grew up in West Clare with my family and moved to Boston when I was very young. Fetus young. I usually think about my days as an Irish step dancer, or the days when I used to bring the cows in to get milked. I still go back home about 3 times a year. This podcast keeps me alive! Thanks for all you do!”
