TRAVEL WITH CELTIC INVASION VACATIONS
Every year, I take a small group of Celtic music fans on the relaxing adventure of a lifetime. We don't see everything. Instead, we stay in one area. We get to know the region through its culture, history, and legends. You can join us with an auditory and visual adventure through podcasts and videos. Learn more about the invasion at http://celticinvasion.com/

Huw Kinsella emaield: "Hello Marc, hope you are well. I would just like to let you know that i have been listening to your podcast for over 10 years! I lived in Qatar in the middle east from 2008 and recently returned home to Wales. I listen to your podcast while running and absolutely love it. Keeps me calm, as running can be quite tough in the hills of wales! I particularly love the Andrew Mcmanus song searching for the sun on elisode 493, but cant seem to find it anywhere to download. Anyway, thank you so much for your music, you will never realise just how much it means to me and i look forward to every thursday when i can download and listen! Have a great day, sending lots of love from Wales."

David Scovel emailed a photo: "Hi Marc, I thoroughly enjoy the Podcast. I love Celtic Music. I listen to it while I split wood, walk our Boxer, or up on a ladder while washing windows.  Today I was Cross Country Skiing down by the CT River with my favorite girl (who has lots of English, Irish and Scot in her bloodline). Actually she’s more than a girl, she’s been by me side as a bride for 33 years! She’s starting to like the podcast more and more."
