* Helping you celebrate Celtic culture through music. My name is Marc Gunn. I am a Celtic musician and podcaster. This show is dedicated to the indie Celtic musicians. I want to ask you to support these artists. Share the show with your friends. And find more episodes at You can also support this podcast on Patreon.

Since it's now Thanksgiving, I can officially invite you to listen listen to the Celtic Christmas Podcast. You can subscribe at

To celebrate the holiday, I have a new Christmas Music Special that is now available. You'll get 2 Celtic Christmas CDs, Celtic Heartstring Christmas ornament and a podcast shirt for one incredibly low price. Follow the link in the shownotes at for details.


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 it's culture, history, and legends. You can join us with an auditory and visual adventure through podcasts and videos.

2019 is the Celtic Invasion of Star Wars. 2020 is the Origins of Celtic Invasions. You can find out more about these two exciting trips. Join the invasion at


I don’t know about you. But I am not a fan of corporate influence. Certainly not in politics, but also not in the music I create and share. That’s one of the reasons that the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast supports independent Celtic musicians. I want to help the artists who don’t have a record label or a giant production company behind them. They are doing everything themselves. Your support of this podcast helps with that mission.

This show is listener supported. Instead of trying to find advertisers, I've decided to let your generosity fund the creation, production, and promotion of the show. You'll get episodes before regular listeners, discounts on merch, and when we hit a milestone, you get extra special episodes, including a bonus episode of the Celtic Christmas Podcast that will come out next month.

I want to thank our newest patron of the podcast: Mark K.

Joanna K Fedewa emailed: "I love your podcast! I’ve been listening on and off and then recently rediscovered! I’m in Alaska in the Anchorage area! and I love listening to the podcast as I practice my Irish Dancing at the sports center! I get a lot of weird looks but hey I don’t care lol! It’s also fun to drive my clients nuts with the Irish music! I work as a direct care provider which means I take people who have disabilities out into the community to do fun things like walk around the sports center or movies and such. One of them in particular always says Really Joanna again? When I have it on it! ?? thanks for the great music!"

Jerrie Adkins commented on patreon: "We're planning to wear our new podcast t-shirts to a concert by a band called Caledonia Swing this week."

Fran Herlihy emailed: "Hi , I’m having one of my insomniac nights , and while trawling for some Celtic music came upon your amazing podcasts. Wow, that was at 3am, now it’s 9.45 am and I’m still listening! I’m living in the Southern Highlands of NSW  Australia. and I’m hoping to educate the Kangaroos to Celtic music as they visit me most days! Carry on your great work."

Jane Haines emailed: "Hi Marc, I found you through Jil Chambless. I taught her son, Jack, in Tuscaloosa and we have kept in touch through Facebook.

My boyfriend and I are going to Ireland soon with his brother and sister-in-law. They haven’t decided when yet. I am so excited!

My grandmother is a Mulligan from County Cork, but never shared information about her family with us. My uncle did some research before he died, so I am going to find that to get caught up and maybe do some more of my own.

Glad we found you. Please let me know if you are playing in Birmingham. Thanks!"
