Listen to to the Best Irish & Celtic Music Podcast Online!



Jul 30, 2015

Last Thursday, I shared a ten-year retrospective of the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast, featuring 3 hours of great Celtic music by some of the best indie bands online. It was three hours long because fans of the show got behind it through my Celtic Music Challenge. You made pledges to the podcast on Patreon, and you also left voicemails. So many voicemails!

The voicemails are the reason I decided to create a bonus episode. By calling in, you were saying you wanted a three hour show. That's great, but to clog the show entirely with over 70 voicemails. That just didn't seem fair. So instead, I'm gonna fill this bonus show with voicemail. PLUS, I'm also gonna add in some of the other awesome songs and tunes from my Best Of episodes

Today's show is brought to you by My Irish Jeweler

My Irish Jeweler is a great website out of Dublin, Ireland. They make Celtic Rings & Jewelry for Men & Women and ship for Free all over the world. My wife and I ordered our own Celtic Wedding Rings from My Irish Jeweler. We chose the embossed trinity knot wedding ring. The trinity knot is a symbol that is used throughout celtic art & literature. It can represent faith or eternity, a beautiful symbol for our love.

But it's not just about wedding rings. My Irish Jeweler has a great range of Celtic Cross Pendants, Claddagh Jewelry and other super gift ideas. Always made in Ireland. Always free shipping. They are offering a 10% discount to listeners of this podcast. If you have any trouble with your discount, or any questions about Celtic Jewelry, just drop Peter an email. That's what I did.
