Today's show is brought to you by Celtic Invasion Vacations

Every year, I take a small group of Celtic music fans to exotic locations around the world. We don't travel in big tour buses and see everything. Instead, we stay in one area. We get to Know the region through its culture, history, and legends. Plus, I bring you some great Celtic music by me and other Celtic artists. In June, 2015, we're going to County Donegal and the Giant's Causeway. I want to invite you on a magical experience that will bring your love of Ireland deep into your soul.
