Jeffrey Adelsberger emailed: "Marc, Thanks for the great music. I’ve made working through your archive part of my morning routine and thought I should add a little more support."

Matt Norton emailed: "Hey Marc, I love the show! I was using it as a commute companion and now I listen as I tinker while staying home.

I know it is not the primary focus of your show but I was wondering if you could point me in the direction of more Celtic Electronic fusion groups, especially those that may be more rare. For Example, ....Going out on a limb here... do you know of any bands similar to Niteworks and Sketch? Both of these groups have captivated me, especially with their use of Gaelic. I am really just looking for any groups that sing in Irish or Scots Gaelic with a Celtic soul and an electronic touch.

No worries if no others come to mind. I am sure that I will eventually hear them on the show.  Thank you so much in advance for any reply. Keep up the great work! Stay healthy!"

James Martin emailed: "Hey Marc, just listening to the last podcast while I’m camping. Sent a message to Facebook but got the auto-reply you don’t check it often. ??

A long while back, I emailed [Loreena McKennit] address on her site and asked how she classified her music. I got a response back that said she considered it “Eclectic Celtic”. I always thought that sounded neat and thought I’d pass it along!"
