I really enjoyed being able to take along a varied selection of fresh Irish and Celtic music to enjoy far from civilization or along a cobblestone street after a pint! Last summer solstice I began bicycling alone from CT towards Yellowstone planning to winter in Arizona. 16 months later I returned to CT after 17,000 miles and about 40 episodes of the Celtic and Irish music podcast. I picked up a couple tin whistles along the way to dive a little deeper into the spirit. with love kaelwhale"

Patrick Rieger emailed some photos: "Hi Marc, I wanted to thank you for choosing my message from a few months back to read on the air and share the photo in the show notes in episode 615 of the Irish and Celtic Music Podcast. You are very right, it is wonderful to be more involved in the community and help spread the fun and the joy of Celtic music and other aspects of the culture. And to think it all started 17 years ago when a friend told me about something called renaissance festivals. Celtic Pittsburgh is growing. My wife and son have joined in, as well as a friend. We had tables at the Pittsburgh Irish Festival, and the Ligonier Highland Games.Thanks to those events we have many more subscribers on our Facebook page, and I have learned about other events and other musicians and bands I had not heard of before. I have attached a few photos. The Irish festival was held on the site of an old steel mill in Rankin, Pa, just outside of Pittsburgh. In one photo, Sue Borowski's group, RichPatrick, can be seen performing at the Ligonier Highland Games. On Labor Day weekend, Sue and I were interviewed on the radio! It was an "I can't believe I am doing this" moment. If you care to have a listen, here is the link. Again, thank you! Woodland Folk sent some photos in September

John Mahony replied to the Celtic Music Magazine: "Hey Marc, Thanks for everything you do to promote Irish and Celtic culture! I usually listen while working on technical stuff. It relaxes me and helps me keep up with newer bands. For St. Patrick’s Day, I will be going to a lower - key party rather than hitting the bars, though I might stop at one or two. I help produce live Irish and Celtic music shows year - round, so I guess the answer is that I’m just doing more of the same!" Edward Birdsall emailed: "Greetings; What am I doing while listening  -  out for daily walk if it is not raining or snowing here in Georgia (1 - 2hours long)  also I listen while donating platelets at the Red Cross which I do on average every 6 weeks which means 2.5 - 3hrs of show for that " Chris Raisin replied to the question, 'What are you doing while listening?': Usually lying in bed with my eyes closed (but not asleep). And for Patrick's Day? "Probably the same as I do for any other day (being 73 years old, single and living alone having lost contact with all my friends due to those infernal lockdowns we had in Melbourne." He's celebrating "By just listening to your great podcasts each time they are issued and remembering back to my days as an energetic Scottish (yes, not Irish) Country Dancer and Highland dancer (not so good at the Highland stuff…LOL). I still have a kilt in my closet (a bit moth eaten now) which I ceased fitting into about 30 years ago. Keep up your great sessions, and I look forward to (I hope) a bonus session. Slainte!"

Mike Coombs messaged me: "Hi Marc, I’m listening to your brilliant podcast for the first time in ages, recovering from an awful week of covid  -  it’s still with us and very real. I’ve been vaccinated and had the booster shots and I’m pretty fit but it was still awful, so goodness knows what it would have been like if hadn’t been vaccinated! Anyway I just wanted to say how uplifting and healing it is to listen to such great music. Thank you so much for producing this. I can afford to subscribe only a small amount each month but it is worth very much more. As a musician myself I appreciate how much a show like this can help what is not the most popular music in the world  -  even though it should be  -  to come to the attention of more people. It is great to hear so many great musicians and tunes that I have never heard before. You just mentioned Heather Dale whose album  Fairytale I bought after hearing her on your show  so I shall make sure to check out your next podcast! When I am better I shall probably send you an old recorded track of mine that you may want to play. I am hoping to get an album mastered as soon as I can afford it, but this track I think fits the Celtic criteria so it would be interesting to see what you and your listeners if you decide to play it think. All the best and keep producing these great podcasts " W Danny Studstill sent some photos on Facebook: "We build shillelaghs while we listen ☘️"

Finally, Allie Ryan asks: "Hi Marc, do you know any “district 2” Irish music bands? “District 2” being the City Council East Village, Gramercy Park, Kips Bay, Lower East Side of Manhattan ? Our family, including our 9 & 11 yr old daughters listen to the podcast on Sundays when going to music lessons ( and to practice Irish dance lessons  ) I am running to represent the district in City Council and would love to represent/ promote a local band(s)/artist on the campaign trail. My husband is clipping together video clips and always needs a good song. We plan to have a meet and greet at our local Paddy Reillys bar ( lot of history there !)  -  so who knows, maybe we’ll at some point have a venue / gig for them -   hopefully a victory party. Thanks for any response. Election coming up Tuesday so we will be in full campaign mode non stop til then  -  things will happen fast. Hope this gives you some inspiration / ideas and hope to hear from you or artists soon ( feel free to pass on this email / address ). "

Marjie Kennedy replied to the Celtic Music Magazine feedback request: "I wanted to let you know that on March 17th I will be at the Hibernian parade in the Dogtown neighborhood of St. Louis Missouri.  St. Louis has two parades each year because the Dogtown one is on March 17 every year, and the downtown St. Louis one is always the Saturday before St. Patrick's Day (unless the 17th falls on a Saturday, in which case I think they end up both being the same day). I will listen to your podcasts either before or after those festivities. And this past Sunday, March 12, I celebrated by including some Celtic music and other Irish tunes on the radio program that I host on KDHX.org called Lotsa A Cappella. Thanks for all you do for Celtic music!" Tera Bochik replied: "I'm usually driving around doing my patrol rounds as a security guard. Unfortunately I have to work on St. Patrick's day. (Missing the First Annual 20th World's Shortest St. Patrick's Day parade in Hot Springs, AR.) I celebrate by listening and sharing about the podcast to anyone who asks what I'm listening to." Von Rothenberger replied from Lucas, Kansas: "Happy Birthday! Erin Go Braugh! Thank you for all that you do." Rick Cunningham of Boxing Robin replied: "Hello Marc, Many thanks for including Boxing Robin on Vol 2 of the St. Patrick's Day podcast! Have fun at the gig tonight -  we're playing 80 miles away but at least it's a fairly early gig! All the best. Tom McHugh sent a photo: "Hello Marc, One of the things I like to do while listening is make pens. The first picture is a Celtic - themed ballpoint pen I recently completed. The second picture is what two pens I recently made looked like while they were still on the lathe at our local makerspace. Thanks for making the podcast! I’ve very must enjoyed listening to all the new music!"

On St. Patrick's Day I am cooking a meal for my wife's family  -  a tradition since we first started dating. We will also listen to the Dropkick Murphys concerts from years past, if they don't have one live on YouTube. We will be singing along  -  my wife's Irish born grandmother can't make it this year, but we WILL be making a phone call to far off Minnesota." Stacia Ahlfeld replied: "We'll probably be doing school while listening. My kids like Irish and Celtic music as much as me. I am hoping to go to a nearby town's St. Patrick's Day parade. The town's name is Ireland, so they kind of blow it up. We'll probably continue to listen to music, and I might tell some stories."

Ethan Sellers of Logical Fleadh emailed: "Hey Marc - Just wanted to send a belated thank - you for the Mother’s Day spin.  Such a nice thing to highlight the women in Celtic music.  The strong presence of women  -  especially instrumentalists  -  in traditional music is one of the things I really appreciate about the field. Cheers," Ann Peck McBride emailed: "I first heard the podcast about 13 years ago! And it's taken me all this time to become a Patreon member. Sorry, Marc! I'm embarrassed to say I listen to your podcast while I'm doing housework. (It's a treat I give myself so that I'll actually do the housework) I am always surprised at the wonderful new Celtic artists you play. I first listened to you because I needed to hear all the Celtic music I could. I listen now, partly for that reason, and partly because for the last few years, I have co - hosted a Celtic Music Hour program in Salem Oregon, on KMUZ. As my friend (and I think yours) Steve Behrens said, "We've fallen down the rabbit hole of Celtic music!" And here in the Pacific Northwest, we have a LOT of Celtic musicians... Thanks" Debra Roche emailed a photo: "Hello, Mark, I recently played your St Patrick's Day 2023 podcast from SiriusXM and loved it! Many years ago (1985 - 1991)I had opened The Celtic Cottage & Roche's of Ireland in Davenport, & Bettendorf, IA which brought me to do an Irish show at St Ambrose University for their college radio show. How much fun that time in my life was! Whenever you give back to your community it is just the best when your family roots are connected! As my father's parents where from County Limerick Ireland. Glin & New Castle West. Hope you're well and thank you for your music podcast!” Melissa Helman emailed a photo of her dirty dishes: "So exciting, I know. Keep up the great work with the podcast." Christopher Patrick of Salem, MA emailed a couple photos: "Hello Mark! I can’t tell you how happy I am to have discovered the ‘Irish & Celtic Music Podcast!’ But I’m gonna try, all the same! You see, in my childhood, my 5 siblings and I would get loaded up into our family station wagon every Saturday morning by our mother. She would then proceed to drive us all into Boston for our weekly Irish Step Dancing lessons. Our rides both in and back were spent listening to Boston’s AM’s radio show, ‘The Irish Hour,' and later, ‘The Irish Hit Parade,’ (still on the air to this day!) So, those jigs and reels were ingrained in us in our step dancing, and the other traditional music was from our rides there and home. My mother soon landed us an agent, and we, the six kids, danced all around the Greater Boston area. So, it is no real big surprise that these days, I play in an Irish Music Band with my family. Comprised of myself, my brother, two sisters, and brother - in - law, we perform under the name of ‘FitzBlarney,’ based in Salem, Massachusetts. I’ve attached a coupla’ photos for you, too  -  one of the six of us in our 1970s step - dancing attire, and one from this past St. Patrick’s Day, where FitzBlarney played out at The Witches Brew pub in Salem. The music you play means a lot to me, so, I recently became a patron. Just out of appreciation! Thanks again, and ‘Sláinte!’ P.S. I would love to one day get on your podcast! That’d be so cool!"

For St Patrick's Day?  "Hanging at two of our favorite Irish pubs, drinking Guinness and Jameson, and listening to some great Irish bands. We constantly have Celtic music on in our house and we are planning a trip to Ireland this summer.  Our trip three years ago got squashed due to the pandemic." Travis Senzaki replied: "Hi Marc, thank you for continuing to put out this podcast year after year! This St. Patrick's Day, the podcast is really my only connection to Celtic culture, so I'll be spending the evening listening with my kids. Over the years of listening, I have moved from the US to rural Japan, where there is no other access to my Irish roots. I have to travel to even find Guinness on tap. But thanks to you, my kids have picked up on Celtic music (or "Daddy's car music", as they call it) and even recognize it when some of the common themes find their way into movie or game music. I hope to continue sharing this music and culture with them as they grow older, and your podcast remains my best resource to do so. Thank you! Thanks again for all you do! I'm looking forward to listening to the St. Patrick's Day episode(s) over a glass, even if I have to pour it from a can. Slainte!" Sarah Shorter replied: "Good morning Marc. We are enjoying some autumn sunshine down in new zealand. I'm listening with my son (18 months old) and he loves the show. St Patrick's for us will be attending play centre (a parent run education centre) where we will be making shamrock fairy bread.( green sprinkles on buttered bread cut out with a cookie cutter) quite a conglomeration of celtic and new zealand cultures. We will also be bringing in a play list to share with the kids ( aged 0 to5 ) I'm just putting it together now starting from the best of 2022 and 2023 Playlist.. Kia Ora"

They focus on american civil war music. But on one of their albums, Irish chanty, if i remember right. I gained an appreciation for the irish/celtic genre. Not sure if its possible, but if there was an episode based off of irish music focused on war songs sung in battle that would be an awesome episode. Thank you for everything you do, ive been listening for years now off and on, and it never fails to make my day brighter."

What a talented artist with a beautiful voice. I may have to get me one of these cards." David Van Horn replied to a picture and funny song request: "Marc: One of my most favorites funny songs from you is “Beer, Beer, Beer.” I neglected to take a photo of the brisket.  It was devoured quickly so no proof remains." Andrew Kruspe of Black Market Haggis replied: "Marc, Hello! First, I hope y’all are doing well, and that you had a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day season. We did here, and we thought we would share some photos from a special event that we did at Lowe Mill in Huntsville. We had a “hands - on concert.” We played a 45 minute set, and then we passed out about 35 bodhráns and taught the audience how to play a reel. They then joined us for a tune! You can find photos here: https://www.facebook.com/100064734638890/posts/pfbid02PEteGt8yjyeavAz4BY57cW9dYBRFaA6ry139e9MsNDeVSC666aGmigBor1brm1pql/ Take care, thank you for your work, and have a wonderful week!" Maureen R replied: "St. Patrick's Day is a family day, starting with donuts, then Mass at St. Colman, one of the oldest churches in Cleveland, that for decades had supported a largely Irish immigrant neighborhood. This Mass is the start of the day for the West Side Irish American Club. The dignitaries and club marching units from pipes and drums to tiny pom pom "Bridgies" march into the church with all the regalia of the annual St. Patrick's Day parade. Parts of Mass are read in Irish Gaelic, and familiar Irish songs and readings are shared. The lighting in the church is changed to green uplights and the hall is filled wall to wall with families in Irish sweaters and Irish pride. After Mass and the marching units parade out of the church, everyone heads to downtown Cleveland for the annual St. Patrick's Day parade, one of the largest of its kind in the U.S. and one of the only St. Patrick's Day parades that is always held ON the day. After the parade, families disperse to the many parties all around town. After marching in the parade, I will head off to entertain the crowds with my band, Ballinloch for the last performance of a two week non - stop Irish adventure."

For St. Patrick's Day we love to listen to Irish/Celtic music all day so if it's in a podcast, we'll add that for our listening pleasure. And we ALWAYS have corned beef dinner!" Darin Wallace of the Stout Pounders wrote: "For St. Patrick's Day I am celebrating by playing music all day in pubs in Seattle, WA with my band Stout Pounders. We would love it if you featured one of our upbeat newer tracks from our Pour Decisions album.  :) Enjoy the big day and happy birthday in advance!! " Gordon Webb replied to the Celtic Music Magazine: "While listening I relax back in a recliner with my feet up. For your St. Patrics show, the more the better. Thanks for all of your years of shows." Catherine Koehler replied the Celtic Music Magazine: "I know I only need to answer one of the questions but I'm an overachiever so I will do all three.  What I always do while listening is something school related  -  I'm either grading papers or looking up or creating new assignments. I used to be quite low on St. Pat's but I have finally realized that there are many ways to be happy on this day of Irish celebration.  I live in a very "unusual" area that has no Irish culture at all.  I am a Celtic performer who must travel quite a distance in order to perform at festivals and events but that is impossible during the week since I work a regular job. I used to be sad to see all of my friends on Facebook singing and playing all week long!  I wanted so much to be with them and enjoying the festivities.  Then I realized that I was blessed to spend that time with my family...making an authentic Irish meal (NOT cornbeef and cabbage) and listening to those same friends on a mountain of CD's.  There are, of course, Irish libations involved. : - ) Now I look forward to the day as it was originally meant to be; a chance to share our faith and our heritage with others."

Will be starting the feast day with a Mass then full Irish breakfast!!" Adam Young replied: "Hi Marc -  - I'm usually working while listening, doing graphic design work or something similar...or just sitting and concentrating on the music itself. I've got two gigs on St. Patrick's Day, so I'll be out in the pubs (2 - 5 pm and 8 - 10 pm) in Sydney, NS, and joining a fellow artist (who you've featured recently), Mary Beth Carty, at her session in the morning. That's also how I'm celebrating the culture through music this St. Patrick's Day!  Our focus is more Scottish music, but we'll be throwing as much Irish into the mix as we possibly can...and staying away from green beer and pots of gold and leprechauns... Best of luck on the show(s)! Thanks" Roger replied: "Greetings Marc from Kendal UK  its snowing. been making a Shepherds Pie for tea while listening to the last episode with the odd stop to practise my bodhran against a song... i need lots of practice... keep up your good work. your podcast is essential listening especially if you have a ceiling to wall paper. best regards"

You’ll not only get a Celtic Earth Album Pin and The Secret World of Celtic Rock, but you can also get a shirt, a tote bag, and you can make a dedication on an end-of-the-year show. In fact, $100 Collection gets you all of that stuff and makes this show stronger than ever! And you can then wear your Irish & Celtic Music Podcast swag to start conversations with others about your love of Celtic culture through music. THANK YOU PATRONS OF THE PODCAST! Because of Your kind and generous support, this show comes out at least four times a month. Your generosity funds the creation, promotion and production of the show.

If we can reach $5000, then you will get a 2 - hour Celtic Rock special on August 31. I was not planning an episode that day. So you'll have an extra episode in August.

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. In 2023, we’re going on a Celtic Invasion of County Mayo in Ireland. We’re gonna explore the area and get to know Grace O’Malley, the Pirate Queen. Learn more about the invasion at http://celticinvasion.com/ #celticmusic #irishmusic #celticmusicpodcast I WANT YOUR FEEDBACK What are you doing today while listening to the podcast? You can send a written comment along with a picture of what you're doing while listening. Or send a picture you took of a band that you saw. Email me at celticpodcast@gmail, message me on Facebook, or contact me through Mastodon @celtfather@c.im. Phil Hartline replied to the Celtic Music Magazine: “I listen in my shop, where I make musical instruments and general wood projects.   I am celebrating Celtic Culture through music by learning to play the fiddle! I have a wonderful opportunity to learn true Co. Clare style from a man who spent a lot of time there. Beginner that I am, I will still be playing tunes on my fiddle to celebrate!" Paul replied: "Marc, I was sitting at my computer writing code ... as one does .. "For St Patrick's Day?" I will be participating in an Irish Road Bowling event with my co - workers at the Green Bank Observatory in Green Bank, West Virginia We started back in October, listening to music for Samhain, then continued into November and December with Celtic Christmas ... and really we listen to Celtic music year - round  -  but I will be celebrating Celtic culture by wearing the green on Friday while I'm busy at Ból an bhóthair, then hoisting a proper stout afterwards. Going to a fife and drum reunion in July (in Williamsburg, VA), where I will be playing a heck - ton of good Irish, Scots, and Welsh music (as well as a smattering of German and English marches, because, well, 18th C. Military music was all over the place) We always enjoy your shows!!!" PENNIERICH replied: "During the show we usually take a break and just relax and listen.” Jesse Ferguson emailed: "I'll be listening to the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast at work that day, then practicing my favourite Irish songs at home on my guitar. Finally, I'll be activating a new Irish song on my YouTube channel, to share with my subscribers, a tradition I've kept going for over 12 years." Michael Maccarone emailed: "Marc Gunn, I usually download episodes and stockpile them. I listen to them on (my rare) vacations, after I have broken them down into 20 - 25 minute chunks (my mp3 player won't rewind within a track, so I split each episode into 3 - 5 mini episodes, which makes it easier if I missed something and want to go back). As a result, I'm only up to episode #430 so far. I don't have any specific Celtic culture plans [for St Patrick’s Day] for this week, other than I just watched the Oscar - winning short, An Irish Goodbye yesterday, and hope to get to the Banshees of Inisheerin in the next couple of weeks. Keep up the good work!"

CLOSING I hope you enjoyed the show. In the last episode, I mentioned the Album Pins. Well, there will also be physical CDs funded by this campaign. I’m only printing 100 copies. The album hasn’t been available in probably 10 - 12 years. So this is your chance to own the limited - edition album. And if you’re concerned about Climate Change, like I am, then I’d like to recommend that you also get a Celtic Earth Tote Bag as well. I’m gonna bet that single - use plastic bags will no longer be allowed at grocery stores in the next 10 years. California is already doing that as are many countries around the world. It’s great for the environment. So you can get ahead of the curve and do something great for our planet. There are lots of other rewards to check out.

One of the main things I’m funding with this campaign is an Album Pin. Album pins are lapel pins. But each album pin is themed to a specific CD. So when you own the album pin, you’ll also get the associated album, so you can wear your album on your sleeve. This year’s design reminded me of my compilation, The Secret World of Celtic Rock, that I released at the start of 2005. So I decided to use that as an excuse to re-release the physical CD as well. So you’re gonna get the album and the enamel pin if you choose that reward.  There are lots of other rewards to check out. Follow my link at celticmusic.org/celticrock to make a pledge.

My wife and I listen to your podcast every time we're in the car. And I listen at work. On St. Patty's Day we usually go to a good Irish bar for some Guinness and shepherd's pie and sometimes Bangers and Mash, depending on when we get there. A few years ago we were lucky enough to go to Great Britain, Ireland and Scotland; a great 10 day vacation. Last week (Saturday) was our Dublin, Ohio's St. Patricks Day parade and we always go to the Dublin Irish Festival in August. Our favorite bands are Gaelic Storm, We Banjo 3 and Eileen Ivers. It was a thrill to be there and listen to these amazing musicians. The Dublin Irish Festival is ALWAYS a great time! Thanks again for sharing your musical talent, and creating such a wonderful listening experience! Slainte to you too, Marc!" William Fisher emailed: "Usually I'm working on the computer listening to your podcast but I download to a portable player so I can listen in the car or whenever... For St Padraig's Day, The Irish social group I belong to is part of a day - long celebration in William's Park, St Petersburg FL. with music, food and games : - )" Rebekah Hedstrom replied to the Celtic Music Magazine: "Usually driving while listening.  We are going to have a quiet St Paddy's day this year.  Corned beef and staying at home.  :0)" Brian McReynolds sent you a message on Patreon: "Just got the shirt I ordered and the bonus shirt. Thank you. I love them both. I think I will wear the new one tomorrow and the 2016 shirt Friday. Oh, and an early happy birthday to you. 😁" Dennis McCarthy emailed some St Patrick's Day photos. He wrote: "Hope that you like these."

Susie Brown replied: "When listening to the podcast I'm usually trying to unwind after a labor intensive day of cleaning." Sarah Fletcher replied: "Hi Marc, I am currently working while listening to the latest Celtic music podcast.  It helps me get through the day.  Thanks" Daniel Faigin emailed: "Well, first, I'd like to encourage you to go back to putting the show number in the show title. It helps with how I organize things in iTunes. What are you doing while listening? Generally, it is on in the background while I work, after I play off that day's playlist (not listened to in 3 years). If a song particularly captures my ear, I look up the artist and either purchase an album from them, or add it to my Amazon wish list. Found a number of great groups that way, through not only this podcast, but Mostly Folks and the Woodsongs podcast." Go to MageNetwork.com for more podcasts. PNiceberg emailed: "Hi Marc, Thanks for all your hard work and efforts. What are you doing while listening? Either working or out walking my dog and enjoying the fresh sounds of your show! I am listening to more Celtic music as well as trying my hand again at learning to play bagpipes!!!" Patrick Rieger emailed a photo and wrote: "Hi Marc, I have been listening to your podcast for years, having learned about it back in 2006 when you mentioned it on the Renaissance Festival podcast. Today I was listening to the Irish and Celtic Music podcast while airbrushing a small model of the starship Enterprise - D, and enjoying the early renaissance festival weather we were having here in Pittsburgh. I help promote Irish and Celtic culture by being an admin on the Facebook page, Celtic Pittsburgh, created by my friend and Irish musician, Susan Borowski, to spread the word about any events regarding Irish and Celtic culture in western Pennsylvania. Before that, I made the Facebook event for the late Terry Griffith, for his monthly show at Mullaney's Harp & Fiddle Irish Pub in Pittsburgh. Thank you for the many years of music and I look forward to many more."

I'm a newbie, discovered your program this past summer." Shel O'Toole emailed: "Dear Marc, Thanks for sending out this song on ANZAC day.  The words of the returned soldier M Edgerley would be powerful enough on their own but when presented by the wonderful voices of Jonny Dyer and Vicki Swan and their musical accompaniment they are deeply felt.  I was moved to tears. I tend to avoid ANZAC Day as it seems to have become a promotion of war rather than a remembrance of the horrors and loss.  This song took me back to when I was a child and the purpose of ANZAC day was to acknowledge the futility and ongoing impact of war. This Aussie thanks you. Regards" Brian McReynolds sent a picture: "So on my (local) travels, I wore my podcast shirt with my kilt while touring the B Reactor on the Hanford Nuclear Site in Washington State. It was well received by a tour guide and one of the people on the tour. Love your podcast and everything you do for the artists. ''

Tom Morley emailed around St Patrick's Day: "Marc, Our Chattanooga - based band Stringer's Ridge played a concert on St. Patrick's Day at the John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, NC. (I am there on the faculty at the famous folk arts school usually once a year teaching beginning or intermediate Irish Fiddle.) We had a wonderful crowd and it was a great way to spend the best Irish day of the year! I am enclosing several photos of us at the historic Keith House where we put on the concert. (Tom Morley - fiddle, Fran Morley - bodhran, Bryant Haynes - guitar) Thanks for all you do to promote Irish trad music!" Marilyn S. Hansen sent a photo about Easter Rising Band: "14 seminarians got together years ago in St. Louis and developed an Irish band. Most of them are married now. They play at each other’s weddings, but they also have regular gigs. The interesting part is how their kids take part… This is last year‘s celebration. I was out of town this year celebrating my sister’s birthday the day before St. Patrick’s Day. Thought I’d send you last year’s photo. I’ll send you a few that they’ve sent to me for this year. Pete Watson emailed St Pat's photos: "Hi Marc, The Bookends had a fabulous time playing a number of shows throughout Ontario around St. Patrick's Day.Attached is a photo of Miriam (left) and Cait (right) on St. Paddy's Day for our gig at The Rec Room, Toronto, with our regular special guest bodhrán player extraordinaire, Romano Di Nillo.Romano is just back from 4+ years with Come From Away on Broadway and we were so glad to have him with us for these shows.The venue was handing out some "paddywhackery" to attendees and these 3 couldn't resist putting some on!" Bruce Cummings, a Piper emailed a photo: "Hey Marc!Just to say how much I enjoy listening to the Celtic music you provide. You asked for pictures from St. Patrick's Day 2023, so here's a couple. I am part of the Lane Fire Brigade Pipes and Drums in Eugene Ore. We had a great weekend piping in the area.Keep up the good work!" Jim O'Connor of Boston Blackthorne emailed a photo: "Hi Marc -hope you had a fabulous holiday! Boston Blackthorne played 3 nights in Western MA, centered around St Patrick’s Day as well as the big parade (the nation’s oldest) in Holyoke MA.We played to crowded enthusiastic fans in Northampton MA and Holyoke MA.But perhaps the best gig (and story) was the one that arose spontaneously back in the lobby of our hotel after our St Pat’s evening show. The hotel lobby is most frequently empty but this night is was crowded with about 100 boisterous folks from Minnesota, visiting Massachusetts to support a Women’s college Hockey team. We were approached by the unofficial spokesperson who pointed at our guitar and fiddle and asked, “Can you really play those?” I answered of course we can, and this is your lucky night!Not only has your party been invaded by musicians, we are an Irish band and this is St Patrick’s Day! We proceeded to unpack our instruments and did a set of singalongs like Charlie on the MTA for the Boston connection.Halfway through the set our wives came into the lobby -my wife grumbled to Pete’s wife, “This party is going to keep us up all night!”Pete’s wife Maureen looked a little closer and exclaimed, “Hey that’s Jim and Pete in the center of it all!”They joined the fray, we had the best gig of the year playing for this group of strangers from the Midwest, wonderful folks who doubtless went home with a great tale and the definition of the work “Craic!”

You can also find pictures scattered across my different profile pages. If you’re thinking of going, I think my favorite things were the cliffs on Achill Island. There were some stunning views. And my absolute favorite was Downpatrick Head. There were more stunning views, but there was a blowhole that went under the cliffs which made it interesting to see too.

Richard Medaugh emailed photos: Rising A Pint of Guinness at the Gaelic League  -  Irish American Club in Detroit, Michigan on Saint Pádraig Day 2023 – Sláinte Russ Gaudet emailed photos: "Hello there, Yes the Knights of Columbus had a very successful St Patrick's Day dinner and dance at our Church in Middleton, NS Here are a couple of pictures to prove it. Cheers" Ann Peck McBride emailed photos: "My Ceili group, Ceili of the Valley, here in Salem Oregon, has a "walkabout" every St Patrick's Day, complete with the Willamette Valley Pipes and Drums. Everyone wears green and has a good time!" Caz of Crikwater emailed photos: “Marc, Thanks for reaching out…Happy belated St Patrick’s Day!  we have a bunch of pics from last weekend.  Buffalo,NY goes all out for the High Holy days…we have 2 huge parades!!!!(and two irish fests over the summer) ..one parade on Saturday through the Old Irish Neighborhood and one on Sunday through the middle of Downtown…so that results in a BIG Party weekend with LOTS of gig opportunities… We played 16 shows in three weeks in March (all on weekends)..Last weekend alone we played 7 gigs in 72hrs!!! NOBODY in the music biz works harder than Irish musicians in the month of March!!! Hup! I’m attaching a few pics for you.” CRIKWATER Pic 1…We played KeyBank Arena at an NHL game to a crowd of 19,000  -  pregame & between periods of the Sabres v Bruins on Sunday 3/19 CRIKWATER Pic 2…Sportsmens Tavern, Buffalo NY..sold out CRIKWATER Pic 3… Ploughshares Barn, Canandaigua, NY..sold out CRIKWATER Pic 4…Molly Maguires Pub, SouthBuffalo, NY..max capacity(we definitely exceeded Fire code - don’t mention that please😉) CRIKWATER Pic 5…75 Stutson Street with our good friends Dady & Ryan in Rochester,NY..sold out I got a private message from Bob on Patreon which I felt needed addressing in a public format: “Marc: I am going to end my Patreon sponsorship of your podcast. The cursing on your podcasts irritates me and I don't think it syncs up with celebrating Irish culture nor a fun, family oriented atmosphere. One example: the Magic Dragon podcast  -  -  Forkroot "Coyotes at the Dump" from Water & Shade, about 20:16 mark. So rather than me being irritated and you being irritated at my reaction, I'll wish you the best, but I sure don't get where you are going.” I did respond to Bob’s comment, but I thought I’d address it here too. I did catch that explicit word in Forkroot’s song. Unfortunately, I was not listening closely to songs right before I headed out on vacation. They were the type of band that I did not expect to hear foul language from. So yes, I messed up. I am terribly sorry for anyone who had to endure the explicit language. As you should know, I do my best to keep episodes of the podcast family - friendly. And as I told Bob, if you ever hear explicit language on the show, please please email me ASAP so that I can correct that error. I rely on your generosity to help me catch these problems. I caught the language problem a day after the show went live and removed the song from the public version of the show. I left it in the Music - Only episode on Patreon, but that song was removed, also from the Celtic Top 20.

We are going to spend most of the day at a local Irish Pub that is having live music all day including the band Beltaine which has been on the podcast. That night we are seeing The Gothard Sisters in concert." Bart Creedon emailed: "Hello Marc  -  1. Living the life of Reilly, since I was fortunate enough to be able to retire last July. 2. I'll sport a little green, consume a little Guinness and look to stay out of too much trouble.  3. I've been listening to Delia Murphy's recordings.  My curiosity was piqued having encountered a fictionalized version of her in Joseph O'Connor's "My Father's House", a novel primarily about Hugh O'Flaherty's exploits during WWII in Nazi - occupied Rome.  I also discovered that Joseph O'Connor is brother to Sinead O'Connor, one of my favorite Irish singers. Thanks for asking." DawnMarie Sharit replied: "I listen while I am doing tedious work, because it gets done so much faster, and I typically have a huge smile on my face, if not a wistful tear in my eye!" Kelly Frenette replied to my email: "Let's see.... Of course I'd love a bonus episode! What are you doing while listening? Wood turning, resin casting or driving. I'm keeping my ancestry alive and remembering the celtic history. I always have it playing in the background while I work."

You can join us with an auditory and visual adventure through podcasts and videos. In 2023, we’re going on a Celtic Invasion of County Mayo in Ireland. We’re gonna explore the area and get to know Grace O’Malley, the Pirate Queen.

Nate Morefield emailed some St Patrick's Day pictures: "Hey Marc, pictures are still trickling in, but attached are a few from 3/17 and 3/18. In terms of funny material, maybe our tune Another Drink might qualify?  It's about a guy who's missing his ex, but mostly because he needs her to fix him another drink...  Just a thought." Ben Doran emailed a St Pat's photos: "Hello Marc, thanks for the invite to share photos. Here's a couple from the Friday night Wild Hog in the Woods Folk Collective's St. Patrick's Bash -  -  featuring myself, Lisa Johnson (as Leafy Greens), and friends Casey Day and Greg Matysik. And for funny songs? We there's Makem/Spain  Bros. "Mr. La DeDaDeDum", but a big bully for you if you can find the rare, "The Second Hand Trouser's I bought in Belcoo" written by Martin McConnell, I believe (brother to the excellent columnist/story teller, Cormac McConnell). Slan go foill." Melissa Wade of Wild Blue Yonder emailed some photos: "Great to hear from you, Marc! We did have a good  -  and very busy  -  St. Patrick's Day! We played three shows in three days, traveling through wind, rain and cold to several different towns. Happy belated birthday to you, as well!! Attached are a few pics from our celebrations. The posed shot is at Anakeesta Mountaintop Adventure Park in Gatlinburg, where we played on St. Patrick's Day. Taking our Irish Celtic music high up in the Great Smoky Mountains to entertain for the holiday was most fitting and special. And while the howling wind and blowing rain were less than pleasant, they gave us the sense of actually being in Ireland! Thanks again for writing, and for all you do for Celtic musicians! We love your show." Sean Malloy of Band o'Brothers emailed a photo: "Hey Marc!  Happy Belated Birthday & St. Patrick’s Day!  Hope you had a wonderful time and a wonderful gig with your daughters. Attached is a picture of Band O’Brothers as we prepared to roll through the streets of New Haven in the St. Patrick’s Day parade.  We had a blast playing out songs for the joyful people along the parade route, and after we completed the parade route we even stopped our float outside a neighborhood bar to play a few songs for the revelers.  We had a great day!"
