Today's show is brought to you by Celtic Invasion Vacations

Every year, I take Celtic music fans on an adventure of a lifetime. This is not your typical wham-bam-thank you m'aam tour. We travel in small groups. We explore the Celtic history of different regions. We don't need to see everything, because this is a vacation. Instead, our invasion brings out the relaxation and magic of our adventure. In 2018, you can join me on a Celtic Invasion of the Isle of Skye in Scotland. Sign up to the mailing list at

Edward Montgomery posted on Facebook: "I found your podcast a couple of days ago and LOVE IT! The song "Moron with the Bodhran" is now my inspiration; I have the first part taken care of and I'm learning to play the bodhran. I have been listening while commuting (60 miles round trip) to my teaching job. Once I figure out how, I want to become a patron. My wife and I will be in Dublin and Dingle in two months."
