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/

Richard Boyce emailed: "What I'm doing while listening? GRADING! I’ve a college professor, and I’ve been plying the red pen madly all week. But grades are soon due, and I will be free to play as well as listen to Celtic music—I’m an Irish flute player. Slainte,"

Mark Haynes emailed: "Hi Marc! I'm actually driving home from a day of errands in Gallup New Mexico to my home on the Navajo Nation. That's what I'm doing while I'm listening to a show in my car. Actually, my truck. I'm not Navajo, but I've lived on the reservation for 25 years and I love being there among the people. Have a great day!"

Kinnfolk emailed a photo: "Hi Marc, We’re listening to episode #503 as we drive back from our honeymoon! We tied the knot last Saturday and spent a couple of quiet days relaxing in rural southwest Virginia. Your podcast is the perfect soundtrack for our return trip through the Appalachian countryside! With gratitude, Kinnfolk "
