If you hear music you love, please email artists to let them know you heard them on the Irish and Celtic Music Podcast.
I was putting together this week’s show when I realized the show was very instrumental heavy. Until very recently, the Celtic supergroup, Lúnasa, played entirely instrumental music. So I figured why not just make this episode another fully instrumental episode of great Celtic music.
Lúnasa is also performing at IrishFest Atlanta next weekend. The Irish & Celtic Music Podcast is a proud sponsor of this year’s festival.
Tickets are now on sale for the festival. You can see a list of performance times and workshops on the festival website at IrishFestAtlanta.org.

Fletch emailed: "Hi Marc, I have no idea if you're ever played anything by CastleBay but they're a friend of a friend so I figured I should let you know. Thanks!"
Shel O'Toole emailed: "Hi Marc, As I was listening to the Jigs and Reels of Ireland #576 I was inspired to share the episode with the session I attend at the Munster Arms Hotel in Ballarat. The session plays some great tunes and some of today’s tunes would certainly be embraced. I only got to write down the name of one tune that I loved: Hector the Hero by Celtic Grass.
I have a 15 minute floorpspot at a Folk night at Creswick tonight. I find listening to your show helps calm my nerves and focus on my musicality. It’s off to rehearse a few songs for me now. Enjoy your weekend. Sliantè"
Kinnfolk replied to the Celtic Music Magazine request for more bands: "Hi Marc! I got some bands for ya, here they are:
