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/

This is a tremendous endeavor. I am looking forward to Celtic musical and podcast enjoyment. Who knows, I may even send u a Celtic music video sometime during a moment of weakness!! Slainte!!"

John Thompson: "thanks for playing the Derina Harvey band. Now that I've discovered them I've bought their first 2 albums and waiting for the last one, Waves of Home, to be released on BandCamp. And I got to see the Screaming Orphans this summer at the Celtic Fling in Mount Hope, PA playing some of their music from the latest album you've been featuring, Paper Daisies. Great stuff!"

John Paul emailed a photo and wrote: "Hi Marc,  I found your podcast earlier this week and finally got a chance to give it a listen. I love it! Your show will be a regular at the puzzle table."
