* The 2-Hour Harp Music Special is still in the works. I apologize for the delay, but the holidays and family commitments took precedence. If it's any consolation, I'm two months behind on releasing my album Dragons vs. Pirates, which I successfully funded on Kickstarter earlier this year. But weekly gigs in November, sick children and the holidays, I'm doing the best I can.

* The 2015 Celtic Christmas Podcast show was a hit. And many of you got the show directly in the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast feed due to a small technical error on my part. But it turned out for the best. Because of that error, we climbed up to #7 on the iTunes Music Podcast charts. I hope you enjoy the show.
