We're less than a week away from Irish Music Month. I thought I'd share a bunch of new indie Celtic music from Heidi-Jane Schwabe, Athas, Abby Green, Jonathan Milton, Myddle Earth, Dearest Home, Avourneen, Nessa, Saby O', La Unica, Stephen Kern, The Tomfooligans, Niteworks, and Lady Moon that was recently submitted before we jump full force into lots of St. Patrick's Day music specials. I have some incredible shows planned. So tell a friend!

Brian wrote in the shownotes: "I grew up on Harry Lauder and played the door of my bedroom with my socks pretending they were drumsticks as my brother played the pipes. Your show is a gift, It feeds my Celtic Soul and I Draw and paint as I listen. Again, Thank you!!"
Luke emailed a picture and wrote: "Hey Mark, I'm Luke From Melbourne Australia, I just recently found your podcast and love it. Great for writing articles while burning the midnight oil. But on this occasion I was waiting for a train at a station at 1am. Keep up the incredible work you do."
Ben in Seattle emailed: "Dear Marc, Your podcast has been one of the few that I've been listening to for almost 6 years now. What was initially supposed to be a way to harvest Celtic mp3s and chop them up into song sized bits has turned into one of my favorite podcasts. Whenever I get down, Celtic music is one of my surefire ways to drag myself out of it and get back in the saddle. Thank you for all the work you have done for indie Celtic music and all the help you've unknowingly give me. I've recently found myself with a few extra dollars and have been more than happy to throw them at you and the Patreon. It isn't much, but I know that every little bit helps."
