This is the last regular episode of the show, one where you can vote for your favorite songs and tunes in the Celtic Top 20. I’ll tell you more about that at the end of the show. We still have shows next month. One is gonna highlight Celtic bands with Official Music Videos. Another is a Song Request episode for folks who supported our Kickstarter back in the summer. Then we have a Christmas episode and we will finish off the year with the Best of 2023 episode based on your favorite songs and tunes from throughout the year. I’m excited to see who the winners are. So keep following the show for details.

Kael Wiersch emailed photos and wrote, "Thank you for the show! I really enjoyed being able to take along a varied selection of fresh Irish and Celtic music to enjoy far from civilization or along a cobblestone street after a pint! Last summer solstice I began bicycling alone from CT towards Yellowstone planning to winter in Arizona. 16 months later I returned to CT after 17,000 miles and about 40 episodes of the Celtic and Irish music podcast. I picked up a couple tin whistles along the way to dive a little deeper into the spirit. with love kaelwhale"
