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. The 2015 trip is now full. You can help us decide where we will invade in 2016. Subscribe to the mailing list to join the invasion at
