I walk early in the morning and this day, the moon was still up and walked with me. My Scottish roots are very deep and we came to North America via Ireland. My mother's maiden name is McCamus which would equate to McKeamish or McHamish probably in Scottish. Be that as it may, we are part of Clan Gunn. One of my bucket list items is to visit the Clan Gunn Museum & Heritage Centre in Latheron, Scotland. Unfortunately, they are not open and I can't travel at the moment anyway. I'm enjoying your podcast. I've been sending the podcast link and some band links to my son in the Navy in Guam. We share an interest in all things Celtic or Gaelic. My favorite band is Gaelic Storm (they play the KC Irish Fest every Labor Day Weekend), but I recently fell in love with Niamh Parsons' voice. I first heard her and her partner on your podcast.?? Have a great day." So many people post on Facebook to say thanks and comment on our Facebook page. I thought I'd share some of those comments. Many from musicians.

We are recording new material set to be released in March. Can't wait to share it with you guys!"

I am listening to this episode of the podcast right now." Scott Sterling: "Many thanks for putting it out there !" Jesse Ferguson (The Bard of Cornwall): "Awesome!

Now, do not get me wrong, I am going to ask a stupid question.  How do you make your money to support the undertaking you have embarked upon since (2008??). Second, do you go on podcast sponsored trips to listen to this music; or do you rely on bands sending in demo's.  I am not a musician at all.  I just love music.  Have taken a fancy to Celtic music as I like the heritage.  Will plan on visiting the Emerald Isle some time before I pass.  Can listen to Celtic Music just as much as Country music, New Wave, Classical, etc.  All depending upon the mood. Thank you for your time and Take care of yourself"

I'm back to doing my early morning walks (have to start walking about sunrise for the cooler weather).  The photo was taken looking north to Safford peak with a hot air balloon moving to the right to pass Safford to the east side.  Back in my peak climbing days I climbed Safford a number of times.  It's a great trip with wonderful views from the top. I learned how to connect 3 of your podcasts, so I could listen to your podcasts for the whole time.  Thanks for the work you do to distribute this music."

The second and third messages are information signs about the Mexican Free Tail bats living under bridges.  I couldn't figure out how to get all 3 photo into the same message."

I walk early in the morning in Kansas City, Missouri and this day, the moon was still up and walked with me. My Scottish roots are very deep and we came to North America via Ireland. My mother's maiden name is McCamus which would equate to McKeamish or McHamish probably in Scottish. Be that as it may, we are part of Clan Gunn. One of my bucket list items is to visit the Clan Gunn Museum & Heritage Centre in Latheron, Scotland. Unfortunately, they are not open and I can't travel at the moment anyway. I'm enjoying your podcast. I've been sending the podcast link and some band links to my son in the U.S. Navy in Guam. We share an interest in all things Celtic or Gaelic. My favorite band is Gaelic Storm (they play the KC Irish Fest every Labor Day Weekend), but I recently fell in love with Niamh Parsons' voice. I first heard her and her partner on your podcast. Have a great day." Rich Windsor replied to the Celtic Music Magazine: "Amazing!!! Thank you so much Marc! Working like crazy to sell a house that my wife and I owned. Married for 35 years and she passed away from complications of MS. Its frightening how much stuff people accumulate when they stay in one place, and now I am moving to a nice small apartment for one person.

We met a gal Bartender from Boston who went over there and hasn't left. I have your CD that has the resterant on it. Irish Dring Songs? Brodignagian Bards I think. I just love it. My daughter loves it too. She had seen a gentleman who told the story of "an Irish Christmas". You make it. I think your family might too. it's wonderful. Slainte," Ken Katen sent you a message on Patreon: "Hi, Marc - Listening to your Love of Planet Earth (#491- I'm catching up on my music podcasts), I thought it was well past time that I thank you for so many years of WONDERFUL Irish & Celtic music. I've been listening to your podcast since very nearly the beginning, sometimes more religiously than others. Sure, it's been grand to hear - and now to get to see a bit of - you, how you and your family have grown and, even tho we've never met face to face, I feel like I know you, just a bit. I remember when you moved (from Texas?) to New Orleans, when you met your LadyLove, and when your wee daughter needed such a grievous surgery (I believe I lit a candle). I hope you all are doing fine, and I'm glad I can help you here at Patreon. I wish I could do more, but I'm supporting a few artists here and [buying] music when I can. One of my favoritest memories, from many years ago now, is of bombing along the dirt ‘backcountry' roads of Joshua Tree National Park, in my then-new 2006 Ford Escape Hybrid AWD, windows up to keep the dust out, a/c on and your podcast playing LOUD. That show was one when you played a pub-ish song (I think one of yours) that was a paen to Joss Whedon, over whom you also rhapsodized before & after the song. I'd tried “Firefly,” it hadn't resonated, but you convinced me to give it another try. By the second episode I was intrigued, by the third I'd fallen hopelessly in love, both with Serenity and her crew (WHAT? only 14 episodes??!!) and with all things Whedon. I had my own grievous surgery/recovery awhile after that, and I loaded up my Netlix CD queue with Angel, based on its description of a troubled vampire trying to navigate his way through the modern world, and when I realized it was a Buffy spinoff, I went back and started watching Buffy until Angel spun off, then watched them in airing order (compulsive engineer here) until they both wrapped up. And since then, Dollhouse, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (well, a lot of it, anyway) - he's so darn [prolific]. I'm not sure whether to say “Thank you” or “Curse ye.” ;) And along the way, I've learned so much about Celtic history and culture from listening to your show - Italian Celts - who knew?? Your taste and selections have grown more and more discerning, and the old favorites come around again too, and I'm always a sucker for a beautiful ballad or a stirring dance instrumental. And your commitment to showcasing diversity in the Celtic music world is outstanding - not only your women only shows, but now your commitment putting together a Pride show of LGBT+ artists. As a gay man myself, who went to the first ever Northern California Renaissance Pleasure Faire - in my defense, I WAS still in high school - and spent some time in my 20's hanging out with the SCA, I know we fae folk have always been a big, but more-or-less closeted part of the re-creationist/Celtic music and cultural world, which [can] present as overtly misogynistic and heterocentric. Just like in real life, sometimes, I guess. But closets are for kilts. And your hand made chain mail, if you've got it. So a big rainbow THANK YOU! .?? for all you're doing to bring out its beautiful diversity. All this has been a longwinded way (I'm Sicilian and Greek, so...) of saying “Thank you” for all the pleasure you've given me. Now that I'm retired, and locked down here in San Francisco, I plan to mark my calendar for the next Celtfather show. Once we're past this dratted Crown Virus thingy, p'raps I'll be able to join you on a Celtic Invasion Vacation, if you're still doing them. Bliadhna Mhath Ùr”

And this is where your expertise is required. I want to publish it to YouTube, and use some Welsh music as background. Can you suggest me tunes/artists to use? Either safe tracks or from artists who agree to be used. Proper credit will be acknowledge, of course. The video should probably be around 7 minutes; no more than 10 minutes. What you think?

Your lovely music is so beautiful that I am transported to Ireland instantly, the home of my gorgeous husband. Keep up the good work. You are loved!" Peter Bengtson emailed: "Enjoyed listening to 6 hours of your podcasts Saturday. I spent that time flying from Phoenix to Honolulu. I could listen to your podcasts stored on my phone. The SiriusXM symphony hall concerts I listened to don't stay on the phone. I'll be on a commercial birding tour for 12 days. I'll be too busy to listen to music then. I'll catch up when I'm back home."

Maybe after Gen Con in Indianapolis, which is where I am currently performing. I was barely able to get this episode done in time.

Where can we send a wedding invite?" Katherine McMillan emailed a photo: "Hi Marc, Thanks so much for all you do, I've found many great Irish/Celtic bands through listening to your podcast. I usually listen to it while I'm in the lab at work but we are currently in lockdown here in Victoria, Australia so my work is closed. Instead, I'm listening to the podcast while sorting out all the sheet music for my flute quartet, hoping it will inspire me to arrange more Celtic music for four flutes as it's definitely our favourite type of music to play. At the moment I've got the Rainy Days episode playing; it seemed appropriate given the very cold and wintery days. Thanks again and keep up the great work!"

You asked in this most recent episode (the first I listened to when it was actually released; I really did just catch up) whether we listen with others or alone.  I share podcasts and individual episodes I like, but no one I know listens to podcasts as much as I do.  So, I have taken to sharing individual songs with people, and noting that I discovered them through this podcast.  As for what I do while listening (another question of yours), this is usually working on art for a comic page or going for a walk. Anyway, thank you so much for your podcasts and for the music they introduce to listeners like myself!  :-)" Mathew Solomon emailed some photos: "A Bostonian expat cooking in Istanbul while listening to your podcast. Hey Marc! I've been listening to your podcast for about a year now. I am not Irish by any means, but traditional Irish music has always held a special place in my heart. Its warmth, human spirit, and general optimism despite hardship is a source of comfort and inspiration. My hometown of Boston has a rich history of Irish music, and one of my favorite local haunts is the Burren in Somerville, a traditional Irish pub with regular Irish music featuring local and international artists. Currently I am making a new home for myself abroad, in Istanbul, and your podcast has been a reliable way to help me feel grounded and at home in this new, exhilarating city. I am an avid home cook, and I always look forward to a new episode to give me more wonderful music to listen to while cooking. Below are pictures of some traditional Turkish meals I have cooked while listening to your podcast, and the view from my balcony from which Irish music can be heard emanating. I am also a musician, but not one who would fit naturally into the traditional Irish folk band. Anyone who wants to help me find a way to fit trombone into an Irish folk sound, give me a call! Thank you for spreading such excellent music; I just finished the latest episode (#520) and I am already looking forward to the next one. Cheers, sláinte, and serefe!"

You have been, for a while now, asking what we are doing while we listen. I don't have a photo for you, but I am usually grading physics homework. Although they are unaware of it, I am quite sure the students appreciate that my mood is jaunty while I grade their work. Speaking of students, which is my actual reason for writing, during the pandemic, I have been recording and posting my lectures so that students who are in quarantine, are caring for others who are sick, or are simply cautious about bringing the virus home to others can keep up with my class. Inspired by my gratitude to you for diligently maintaining the practice of including timestamps in all of your show notes (I can't tell you how helpful that has been), I started time-stamping my 50-minute lectures. Many students have expressed to me their gratitude for my effort in that regard and I wanted to share that gratitude with you. Your patience and attention to detail has benefits not just for those of us who listen and buy music we hear, but also has secondary benefits to those your listeners also interact with. You are positively impacting in many ways. Speaking of that, I am also grateful whenever you stand up for the women of Irish music, the LGBT community, and your broader support of a variety of people and cultures. Thank you! Happy holidays. I hope you and your family are safe and healthy.”

Thanks for making it, and I am so pumped there are over 500 episodes to go back to as a new listener!

It is because of you that I release this show almost every week. But I want to let you know about a big change this coming to the Song Hengers on Patreon. I started Song Henge in 2006. It was a way to support the podcast when amazing services like Patreon were not available. I sent Song Hengers an album per month of free MP3s from some of the artists on the show. I released 168 of those albums over the past 15 years thanks to the generosity of the musicians on this show. When I started the Patreon page, I continued that feature for everyone who pledged $5 or more per episode. There are over 60 albums currently available for Patrons. However, the world seems to be moving away from MP3s. So I decided to discontinue that service at the end of this year. It's time for a change. I still want something special for Song Hengers. That has finally come. Starting in August, Song Hengers will get a talk-free episode, much like the Sleepytime episode that was released in May. I'll introduce the show, you can listen to the music straight through for about an hour, then I'll remind listeners to look up the artists. Each episode will also include complete shownotes and chapters so you can easily skip around to the artists you enjoy, just like regular episodes. Because I DO want you to keep visiting these artists. But it'll be much more music focused. You can become a generous Patron of the Podcast on Patreon at SongHenge.com.

I started out listening to folk & bluegrass music.  Sometime in the 90s I sort of switched to classical music and opera. The Covid restrictions have pushed me into taking long walks every day.  I live in Tucson AZ, so these days I have to start walking at sunrise (5:30) these days.  I usually walk for about 2 hours.  Yesterday I listened to your Celtic Women #503 on the first half of the walk.  The second half to Aria Code (opera).  On the drive home I listened to Symphony Hall on SeriusXM.  I enjoyed all three. I really don't like "recurring donations"  If you are a tax deductible organization with a Tax identification number, I can make a donation from my charitable account.  If you are not a tax deductible organization, I can send you a check. I'm looking forward to reading the Celtic Music Magazine and listening to your podcast." He emailed a photo: "Guard Chickens during this morning's hike listening and enjoying episode 510" Make a donation. Juan Manuel Herrera emailed: "¡Hola, Marc! I'm listening to the #509 while trying to organize the rest of my year activities, in a cold night here in Tandil, Argentina. I always loved celtic sounds. When I listened to your podcast for the first time last year I immediately liked it. It's wonderful! Thank you! ¡Muchas gracias! ¡Saludos!" Shel O'Toole emailed: "I thoroughly enjoyed today's show. From the opening tune to the beautiful song that you left us with. As I soaked up the sun through my front window the sounds of my culture brought my soul alive and my whole being smiles. Thank you. Warmly, Shel"

I am a musician and have played drums with our local pipes and drums bands and always appreciate the great independent artists that play at our local Celtic festival which has unfortunately been canceled last year and looks like this year as well.

I often listen to the Irish and Celtic Music podcast when I work on my genealogy research. My father's roots are deep in Cape Breton and the west coast of Scotland before that. I often think about what my ancestors' lives were like when I listen to the music on your podcast. In my research I came across a great photo on the Isle of Rum in the Inner Hebrides. It shows a woman touching a large rock called the "Emigrants Stone." I thought that would be a great title for one of your podcasts dedicated to those Irish and Scots who were forced from their homes and scattered to the many corners of the world.

We invite you to visit us perhaps in our Irish Fleadh in Cáceres every October and of course, to know Cordoba and its impressive celtic culture fans. Thanks a lot for your music (which I use with my pupils) and your podcast. We also wanted to encourage you to speak at some point about Spanish celtic music and Spanish independent bands such as Ambulancia Irlandesa, Carrion Folk or Rivendell.Just dig a bit and you will find many surprises in Spain as well.

Keenan Joseph Roznowski emailed on Facebook: "Hi, Marc, I just wanted to let you know your podcast has been a cornerstone of my childhood, and it’s just as superb as I remember it now that I’m coming back to it. You’ve been such a wonderful guide through this world of music, and I’ll always have a heart full of love for this show and your hard work. I was homeschooled from 4th grade through the end of high school (I’m 24, soon to be 25 now), and your podcast was a constant companion through countless hours spent in my studies. I have the fondest memories of listening to the music you curated (as well as the Brobdingnagian Bards!) as I gazed out at our garden with countless dreams of warriors, wizards, pixies, and pirates dancing through my head. It’s only been recently I realized how criminally underrated you and the show have been, and I just want to say I supremely appreciate all your hard work in spite of this! In my opinion you deserve millions of fans, but the quality of the ones you have more than make up for it. I hope to show my future children this show one day. Take care, and I wish you and yours the absolute best. Sláinte" Jenni Trail emailed a photo on Facebook: "Hi Marc, I have been listening to this podcast for the past few years. I stopped listening for awhile when I was hooked on audiobooks but now I’m back! This summer I am staying with my grandparents in Idaho as I have an internship at a history museum. I’ve been listening to the podcast as I do work around the museum. I’ve attached a photo on some artifacts from the 1930s I cataloged for the museum. I’ve been obsessed with Celtic culture and history for the past few years, I’m a history major and have taken many classes on British history and Scottish history.  I’ve never been to Scotland, but I hope to go to Fife, the area my family is from. Thank you so much for this podcast! I love listening to this music.  Would you be willing to do a Celtic Punk episode? One of my favorite bands is a Celtic punk group called Flatfoot 56."

I told my graphic designer, Miranda Nelson, that the St Patrick’s Day show would be the 500th episode of the podcast. She thought about it and came back and asked, “would you mind if I collected some audio feedback from some of the artists on the show.” I said,” sure! That sounds great!” I’ll be honest, I didn’t expect much of a response. But I remembered that she suggested this when I started compiling this 500th episode. She forwarded me some feedback via email. I looked through them and didn’t see any audio. “Oh well,” I thought. “Less than I expected, but that’s fine.” Then I noticed one band mentioned something about including audio in their email. But I never got that. So I emailed and asked Miranda where that audio was. Her response, “it’s in the folder you set up on Google Drive.” Oh yeah! I did do that, didn’t I? I opened up the folder and was floored to find over 60 recordings by Celtic bands wishing me a  happy 500th episode. Wow! Ye know a couple pieces are easy to pop into an episode. But I didn’t think about how to include ALL OF THESE pieces? So what should I do for this show? Instead of me introducing bands and songs, I’m gonna let the artists do it themselves. I will play their congratulations as a way of introducing their music. Course that means if you want to find out the name of the song or tune, you will need to visit the shownotes at CelticMusicPodcast.com or just check your podcatcher. Because each track has a time stamp so you can easily look it up. That said, I’ll have a few moments to break up the music and say hi. But for the most part this is just music and congratulations. I want to thank Miranda Nelson Designs for all of her hard work in making this happen. Miranda has a whole bunch of Celtic shirt designs you should check out at mirandanelsondesigns.com. And I want to thank everyone who has supported this podcast over the past 16 years. And without further adieu, let’s meet the bands. THANK YOU PATRONS OF THE PODCAST!

I am a Celtic musician and podcaster. This show is dedicated to the indie Celtic musicians. Please support these artists. Share the show with your friends. And find more episodes at celticmusicpodcast.com. I have a very special show to share with you today. It’s a tradition that I’ve been doing longer than this podcast. Every St Patrick’s Day since before the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast even existed, I published a blog where I shared 17 Celtic MP3s that you could download for free for St Patrick’s Day. You see, I interact with a LOT of Celtic bands and musicians. They gave me permission to give away some of their music. All they ask is that I tell you where to find out more about them so that perhaps you might buy their music and support them. Today, you will hear ALL of the songs that you will be able download for free on St Patrick’s Day. So if there’s a song or tune that you absolutely love in today’s show. You can either visit their website by following the link in the shownotes, or you can wait until March 14, when I will email you a link where you can download all of the music for free. If you want to jump the gun, the downloads are actually now available to all of our Song Hengers. These folks pledge $5 per episode or more per month to support this podcast on Patreon. I’ll tell you more about that later. 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.

If you want to find out Celtic musicians on Patreon, I have a blog article about that. FREEBIES We will publish our 500th episode of the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast next week. This show started in 2005, a year after podcasting became a phenomena. But even before that my goal was to change the way you hear Celtic music, both as a marketing term and how you listen. I started giving away free music like the 17 for St Patrick’s Day. Then I gave away free podcasts like this and other podcasts I host. In fact, I’d like you to check out 11 St Patrick’s Day Facts in the Pub Songs Podcast. I created that episode with some fun facts about St Patrick’s Day and combined it with music from bands in this podcast. I also launched some St Patrick’s Day stories in that podcast. So subscribe and check it out. I have a free eBook for Celtic musicians. It’s called Celtic Musicians Guide to Digital Music. If you want some internet marketing tips, you will want to get that book. And I realized after compiling this list, that that’s a lot of things to share. So if you send an email to gift@bestcelticmusic.net , then you will get links to all of these freebies. Plus there’s a few exclusive podcast episodes that are not in the public feed. And I’ll show you how to get a free CD of mine while they last. #celticmusic #irishmusic #celticpodcast I WANT YOUR FEEDBACK What are you doing today while listening to the podcast?

I came from Brasil but I've  live in Austria since 2015. When I arrived here, everything was so different that I was very sad at the beginning. So I wanted to hear something that could make me feel better. I looked for Radio that Irish and/or Scottish music played, because I love such music. And "voila" - I found your podcast and since then it is being my company specially during my walkout with my dog. I am your fan and I love the music selections. I always try to write those I like more to find out more about the artists. Thanks for your amazing work.

As rough as 2020 was , the Irish and Celtic Music podcast remained a bright spot and ongoing inspiration to me. And the podcast is beginning 2021 just as outstanding as ever. In other news: you may recall that my older son Jackson, high school orchestra violist, got to perform in Carnegie Hall with Irish tenor Eric Cahill in march in NYC St. Patrick’s Day parade in 2018. Well, my younger son Michael plays trumpet in the high school band, and they have been invited to participate in the St. Patrick’s Day parade in 2022 in......wait for it....DUBLIN!

He’s on Facebook under “That Irish Guy”. I can across him randomly and thought I’d share!" Daniel Flowerdew emailed a question: "Hello ?? first I wanted to say I have been listening to your podcast since the early 2000’s. I have always enjoyed it and have found a ton of great music through it! One of which I am trying to find! I wanted to contact you to see if you could help. It was maaaaaaany years ago. I believe it was something like “Wandering Mary” ? It was about a woman that waited by the shore for her William, eventually joined a ship crew, found him cheating on her so she shot him and then became a pirate. Maybe “Dreaded Mary” ? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you for all of the great tunes and humor throughout the years." I don't really have time to help people find songs. But I threw out a few suggestions and eventually figured out he was looking for "Devilish Mary" by The Whiskey Bards. That was in episode #40 from 2007. If there is a song you're looking for, you should definitely check out the Irish & Celtic Music Club on Facebook. It's a great resource for finding more Celtic music. And there are a lot of listeners who are a part of the group.

Also, I'm enjoying the variety in the shows.  Bagpipe and Irish pub tunes are my two favorites, but being exposed to other fusion genres and having a nice mixture of genders and of cultures is awesome.   Keep up the good work!" Mike Nichols emailed: "I think you have played a track from Sea Star on one of your programs I have heard.  I believe Faye was part of a duo that performed under the moniker of Syren. I have one track of theirs from the old "noise trade " or downloads,com days. Red is the Rose: I love this track to a degree that is not reasonable. Wondering if you have any information about where that music catalog might be available. Would love to hear Great Selkie or Moon Jubilee, I'm sure your cast experience could weave either of those into a fantastic episode of one of creatures and the other of celebration songs. Just Mike's opinion. Thanks for a terrific show. Your great work helps me with long drives at my work. I've been busily sharing the show with a few select friends. Thanks again" David Black emailed: "Hi, Further to your episode #483 about being poor but happy I would suggest an Irish song immediately suited to this subject called Cad É Sin Don Té Sin (a rather strange expression in the Irish Language meaning, what's it to you if it doesn't bother you). Altan have done a great version with a different melody." KIM KNEBEL emailed: "Hi Marc. Just listened to the recent podcast featuring women in Celtic music. Suggestion for the new version: The Holman sisters of Tuatha Dea (Rebecca Mullikin) and their violinist, Laura Smith. The song Alienn Dun is haunting and their voices just amazing. While they've gone a bit more to the rock side, their older music has a Celtic/Gypsy flair. Laura is a newer addition and is pretty amazing. Thank you for all you do!!"

Eric Guarin emailed: "Well, I guess I skipped New Year's, but am just finishing listening to the Celtic Christmas Women episode. Really nice! I especially thought the closer (Sharon Shannon's "Christmas Time Again") totally fabulous-if it could ever get mainstream play it could become a new classic. I did notice that in Apple CarPlay, the name of the song and artist pops up. Cool! Has anyone else mentioned that? But at the same time, I'd suggest putting the artist name first. The reason is that display space even on an 8" screen cuts off the artist name. And last or alas, I had really really hoped to join a Celtic Invasion, but you will be roaming during my last week of the school year.*  :-(   Well, another time, I hope.

Carol E replied to the Celtic Music Magazine: "Got the music. I just listen so I can’t tell you who my favorites are. I did like the running podcast you did even though I don’t run.  Appreciate your podcast. Thanks much for all the music." Terry E. asked by email: "Hi Marc ... Will Celtic Music Mag be featuring anything on Leahy and also the band Cécilia (Erin Leahy is also a member of this band as well) ... as they both have new CD’s out and Leahy has a Christmas song out too ... it would be great to see/ hear them on your podcasts or magazine.  Thank you for taking time to read my rant for the day..." Trevor N. Teuscher emailed: "Hey Marc, I have something of a request for a song to play on a future podcast, if it is possible. I don't recall if you have ever played any songs by the band Touchstone or not. I wouldn't be surprised if you haven't since they were only active in the early 1980's. However it was lead by the still active and highly influential Tríona Ní Dhomhnaill. On their album, The New Land, is a song titled Susannah Martin. This song brings together two seemingly very different interests of mine: Irish and Celtic Music and the history of the Salem Witch Trials. I have recently been studying a lot about the history of the Salem Witch Trials, since I recently discovered various familial connections to many of the people involved in those historical events. Susannah Martin, the subject of the song, is especially important to me personally, since she is my 10th great grandmother. The song tells her story in a hauntingly beautiful way. Anyway, I don't know how easy it would be to get permission to play songs from a band that hasn't been together for several decades, but if you can, I would be grateful. Slainte, Trevor"

You mentioned you like pictures so I thought I would send some! I listened to your Samhain episode and a few others from the backlog whilst wild camping the James Heriot Way (a 52 mile circular walk through Wensleydale & Swaledale) in the Yorkshire Dales for three days over the Halloween weekend. With the whirling leaves and autumn fellsides the podcast set the perfect magical atmosphere. The inspiring music was exactly what I needed to pick me up when my energy started to lag hiking down from the head of Swaledale as the sun set, and your cheerful commentary really kept my spirits high while I was night hiking under the full moon on Halloween night and looking for an appropriate place to pitch up! Thank you for spreading such awesome music." Sophia MacKay emailed: "Hello Mark! I first found the podcast through my mother, and have been listening for about 6 years now. It’s the soundtrack to my 40 minute walk to and from work, and what usually I listen to while I knit. What prompted me to finally reach out is the latest episode of the podcast. I wanted to make sure you knew Heather Alexander is now Alexander James Adams. He transitioned, and is therefore no longer a “Celtic woman”. I don’t know myself how to handle dead names when it comes to musicians with work still under their old name, but I’m sure you will do so with grace, considering your commitment to equality and diversity with your podcast." I did know that of course. I was a big fan of Heather Alexander’s work, which is why I reached out to Alex. After getting that emailed, I realized I should've asked Alex before adding Heather to the Celtic Woman show. So I did. Alexander James Adams responded: "Thanks for playing the music. No apologies needed. Heather was proud of her femininity. She worked hard at it.?? I tend to refer to her as a separate person, though I show her off vocally when it is needed. (It’s taken years to get a good falsetto??) I like to think that I just have her running around in the background, making commentary like they do for movies on the bonus DVD. It’s a red head thing! I’m fairly open with the fact that I transitioned and leave it up to each individual as to how or what they say. You can go with the “faerie tale” if you like; Heather being a changeling returned home and me being a Stolen Child released, or you can be straight with your audience. I trust your judgement. I’m honoured and happy for you to play the music of the Heatherlands. As the Heir, I keep the magic alive by holding all that has been done equal to all that will be. Honesty is always fulfilling for me. Again, thank you for supporting my music, especially this year. I’m glad you’re getting through this still standing and wish you great advancement in the new year! Happy Holidays!"

I am in the USA. In my 70s. I always loved folk music. I always found the sound of Irish music to be so comforting, so down to earth.  I was in Dublin a couple of years ago, and loved it.  Ireland is one of the places I hope to be able to visit again. COVID-19 go away!!! A couple of years ago while taking my then 8 year old granddaughter to Hebrew school, I put on a local Irish music show in the car. She loved the music. Glad I was able to pass that on to her. She plays violin. Hopefully one day the fiddle." (Gene) Brewer replied to the Celtic Music Magazine: "Yes, I did retrieve the free tracks and have installed them into my library, which continues to grow. Thank you very much. A few of my favorite bands/artists that I know names for are: Slainte (out of Seattle I believe but think they has broke up) Celtic Fiddle Festival (Kevin Burke is tremendous on the fiddle) Chieftains Altman There’s lots of artists I like but I don’t know or recall exactly their names. Right now I am living in a small SoCal desert town and there is no Celtic music scene here to my knowledge. this why I stream a lot of music. I’m retired so my entertainment funds are limited. so I look for the most for the least. Some people call it cheap, I call it frugal. However I’ll be getting the bumper sticker offer to help out the cause. My heritage is Irish (Ussery from County Cork), English, German and Cherokee Indian. My internet is flaky and sometimes real slow (DSL) like last night. Had trouble streaming the podcast. Looking into getting a better ISP."
