You can join me in Scotland in June 2018. Imagine joining a small group of eight Celtic music fans, driving in a van as we explore the  Isle of Skye. Some call it one of the most-beautiful islands in the world, with spectacular vistas, gorgeous castles and towns, fairy pools, and magic. We won't see everything. Instead, we will stay in one area, and get to know the region through its history, culture, and legends. Subscribe to the mailing list to join the invasion at

Imagine a world with no Celtic music. Pretty crappy, right? All you have is boring pop music being shoved down your throats by big record labels. You wouldn't get to experience the incredible music shared each and every week in the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast.

I want to thank the amazing generosity of all of our patrons. But I want to send an extra special thanks to our Celtic Legends: Bryan Brake, Nancie, Hunter Melville, John Bilderback, Kevin Long, Annie Lorkowski, Derek Lineberry, Lynda MacNeil, John Sharkey White II, Theresa Sullivan, Shawn Cali.

These incredibly generous people bring you hours of great Celtic music. You can help celebrate Celtic music and culture and keep this show running every week. Become a Patron of the Podcast a

Samantha Humphreys emailed: “Hello, Hello! I’ve just gotten back from India where I was studying Kundalini yoga and used to being up at about 4 am listening to Indian music.  It’s now 7:30 am and I’m sitting down to this delicious nutritious plant based meal to do some lovely reading - I switch to some lovely jams for the background and the vibe. And your podcast is my immediate go to!

Thank you for sharing such lovely music, I’m loving Celtic music more and more as it feels so at home to me (I have Celtic roots on my mother’s side). I recently found here in Old Town Alexandria VA a LEGIT Irish pub called O’Connells and it’s my favorite go to spot for live traditional Irish music. They play in this little nook up front where there are thankfully no distracting TVs. The space in sum is large, 5 rooms, two floors. But the one up front when you first enter is where the live music is. It’s small, cozy, warm, intimate. A real Irishman working the bar! My friend and I went one evening without knowing there would be live music and there were only two people at the bar, her and I, and some lovely Irish musicians. It’s as if the place was reserved for just her and I. Such a beautiful time her and I shared in silence and in aw of the sounds and energy coming from the little nook! I will definitelyyy be going back there for some lunch and Celtic Music feels an in the mean time I’ll be into this podcast regularly- also just downloaded the app (: Thank you, thank you!
Namaste and Blessed Be. Samantha.

Thank you Samantha. Wow! It is beautiful to hear all the different types of people find and fall in love with our music. From India to Ireland and around the globe. Brilliant.

I hope you enjoy the app too. It definitely makes it easier to listen.
