Jarrod Reynolds emailed: "Hey Marc, Congrats on the 500th episode. I highly enjoy the podcast. One of my ancestral lines is Irish so Irish music has a special place in my heart, and the fact I've been to scotland, makes it that much more special. I was wondering if you had any suggestions for instrumental irish harp artists that specializes in jigs and reels. Slainte"

Huw Kinsella emaield: "Hello Marc, hope you are well. I would just like to let you know that i have been listening to your podcast for over 10 years! I lived in Qatar in the middle east from 2008 and recently returned home to Wales. I listen to your podcast while running and absolutely love it. Keeps me calm, as running can be quite tough in the hills of wales! I particularly love the Andrew Mcmanus song searching for the sun on elisode 493, but cant seem to find it anywhere to download. Anyway, thank you so much for your music, you will never realise just how much it means to me and i look forward to every thursday when i can download and listen! Have a great day, sending lots of love from Wales."

David Scovel emailed a photo: "Hi Marc, I thoroughly enjoy the Podcast. I love Celtic Music. I listen to it while I split wood, walk our Boxer, or up on a ladder while washing windows.  Today I was Cross Country Skiing down by the CT River with my favorite girl (who has lots of English, Irish and Scot in her bloodline). Actually she’s more than a girl, she’s been by me side as a bride for 33 years! She’s starting to like the podcast more and more."

WELCOME TO CELTIC MUSIC

* Helping you celebrate Celtic culture through music. My name is Marc Gunn. 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. You can also support this podcast on Patreon.

We have a bit of a different show today. 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!

Anne Smith emailed a St Patrick's Day photo last year: "Dear Marc, Responding to your request for St. Patrick’s Day photos in the newsletter! My husband and I live in Deep East Texas, but on St. Patrick’s Day Eve, we had the rare and wonderful opportunity to see the Chieftains perform in the nearby town of Tyler, Texas! We wore our Celtic finery (photo attached) and enjoyed a splendid show. We also loved the opening act, an Irish/Americana/folk fusion group called Switchback. Thank you for all you do to promote Celtic music!"

Steve Cahill sent a St Patrick's Day photo: "Having a great time holding onto a beautiful night St. Patrick’s Day 2019! Slainte!"

Jan Czenkusch sent some St Patrick's Day photos from 2019: "After church we went to our son's soccer game.  Interestingly it was the green team (Celtic Cowboys) against the orange team (don't know their name)."

* Helping you celebrate Celtic culture through music. My name is Marc Gunn. 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.

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.

Luz Leitner emailed: "Hello, Marc

My name is Luz. 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. "Alles gute""

Hank Woodward emailed: "Hi Marc,

Hope the new year finds you and your family safe and healthy. 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!

Again, So much thanks for bringing us all the podcast. Slainte’"

James Martin emailed: "Hey Marc, not sure if you’re helping to share musicians streaming or not, but there’s a guy up in Seattle who streams music for 2 hours on Saturday evenings (7:30 to 9:30 pst) if anyone is looking for an Irish Music Fix on the weekends. 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.

James Slaven emailed photos: "Hey, Marc! Hope things are going well!  Still immensely enjoying the podcast.  It's been quite helpful as I hike around state parks to get some socially distanced exercise and keep sane during my ten months (so far) of working from home.  A few pictures are attached of various hikes that I was taking while listening to your various shows.  There's nothing like having the bagpipes come on as you crest a hill and see a beautiful lake!

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!!"

Carson Sprenger emailed a photo: "So glad I found your podcast on this day. I live on a small island in the Pacific Northwest. Years ago in college I studied irish history and literature.  I spent six months traveling in your dear county, hitching and working on farms in the year of 1995.  My goodness, in these times and in the dark of winter it's such a good thing to discover good music and hear of the good people dedicated to supporting independent music and thought.  Hats off to you.  You made my day.”

Iris Pea M. Tyczynska emailed from Bournemouth, England: "Hey there, Thanks a lot for the podcast :3. I like Irish and Celtic music a lot, so it's a treat. While listening, I dance with my hula hoop ??. I can send you a video next time if you like. When I'm not dancing, I drink local apple juice from a green wine glass while chilling on the sofa ?????"

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. Cheers"

Aaron Adair commented on Patreon: "That was much-needed salve, Mark. Thank you for sharing your love with us all. Be well."

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"

One of my big hopes for this year is to get back overseas for my Celtic Invasion of Loch Lomond. But to make that happen, we have to beat the pandemic, mask up, and get vaccinated.

In the spirit of travel, my graphic designer, Miranda Nelson, suggested this theme--The Road to Anywhere. I picked songs and tunes with a travel theme. Let’s hit the road...

Pete from The Bookends emailed: "Hi Marc - thanks so much for featuring us off the top of your podcast this week and for supporting Irish & Celtic music.  We're thrilled you bought the record and went on to play it on your show"

Maddy Churchhouse emailed some photos: "Hi Marc, Love the podcast. 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!"

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. Email a voicemail message to celticpodcast@gmail.com

Nan Griffin emailed: "Hi, I see your other podcasts on there and your music too and was wondering if your podcast, Irish and Celtic Music Podcast, will show up on Spotify anytime soon? Please advise and thanks"

Georgy Grigoryev asked the same question. I told him the same answer I told Nan. He replied: "oh dang! it's a terrible decision from their side! Thanks for the podacst anyway! My favourite one and not like "oh I don't know they are all great" but truly honestly the most loved podcast!"

Teddy Zeitlin emailed: "I just found your podcast. 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."

  1. (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."

It was a rollercoaster of a week here in the States. So I just want you to know, I love you for listening and for supporting the diversity in our Celtic community. It’s important to remember kindness in these tough times. So I hope I can bring a smile to your face with more great Celtic music.

You may already know that I include timestamps in each episode. This makes it easier for you to find out who is playing and what the awesome track is.

A few months ago, we started using an app called Forecast which creates chapters to make it even more easy.

I can’t find the email. But a month or so ago, someone emailed and suggested that I put the artist name first, instead of listing the song first. I just did that. So now when you look at the show notes, it should be even easier to find out who is playing what track so you can vote for them in the Celtic Top 20.

Brandon Carl emailed a couple photos: "Hello Mark it is nice to meet you. This is my first time messaging you. I have been a long time listener of your podcast and am always a fan of Irish and Celtic music. I am actually in a bagpipe band in Virginia and play the snare drum. What I normally do while listening to your podcasts is play my truck simulator on my PC. Euro Truck Simulator 2. It can be a pretty addicting game. Hope you have a great New Years and talk to you soon! Cheers! *Note:: Band photo was when I used to play the bass drum."

Kristina Arroyo emailed a photo: "I’m working on this piece while listening to your beautiful show, started this on winter solstice."

Scott Selhorst emailed from Dayton, Ohio: “Hello Marc, I have been a fan, a listener, and a supporter for a long time.  Listening to episode 491 got me thinking about this.  Episode 18 (April 2006) is still one I listen to every so often.

My kids, much younger then, thought 4:15-4:20 was pretty cool.  You might think that is a very specific, possibly strange, 5-second range.  Listen to it, and you will understand why 4, 8, and 9 year old kids would think that was pretty cool.  I cannot recall how I initially found your music, but you introduced me to this genre of music, which I enjoy immensely.  Thank you."

I WANT YOUR FEEDBACK

Nova Fortier sent a beautifully satirical question: "Mark, I’ve been listening to your podcast on and off for a couple of years. I enjoy most of your podcasts, your updates on where life finds you. But, when you label something ‘female’ or ‘women’ on your podcasts, I am just extremely confused as to why you included any male voices on your latest podcast? I mean, truly, now, why must I endure male voices on a titled podcast to showcase female voices? Looking at all the musical recordings and references throughout history, surely the male ego has been adequately stroked to allow for women to, truly, be able to showcase their own musical abilities without treading on the chrystalline male ego? Sure, you, as a master musician in your own right, can do better, to research an entirely female show when it is marked as such? Yes, that was stroking your fragile male ego, because, after listening to you for so long, I’ve learned that you need such proddings. Simple male, will you never evolve to meet your female sister, ever?"

Trip McCool emailed: "Marc, I want to thank you for playing "Gravy In The Grave". Both my wife and I had Grandfathers who fought in WWI and suffered poisoning from Mustard Gas. It was tough time for young Irish men who returned to a world with little to no support for the insanities of war. The ravages of the mind, body and soul. My Grandfather Frederick Michael Dougherty, was one of those who "Let the women do the thinking and the men do the drinking." Add four children, the stock market crash, the great depression and 'the old boy' was off for the greener pastures of the mind. When my father said, "You don't know what growing up tough is." he meant it! "You want gravy with your spuds! Sweet Jesus will give ya Gravy in The Grave." Keep your guard up!"

James Martin emailed a photo: "I am frying up some giblet doggy treats while doing some thanksgiving meal prep. Someone in my house is very excited about these treats."

Michael Carey emailed a photo: "always enjoy listening to your podcast when I am out walking my wife’s sulcatta tortoise.  Here is the pic of Groot the tortoise and Iggy the iguana in West Palm Beach Florida"

In every episode, I ask you to vote for your favorite tracks in that show. Your votes for those beloved songs and tunes are added up at the end of the year so that I can bring you the Celtic Top 20. It is my great pleasure to share with you the Top 20 Celtic Songs and Tunes of 2020. These tracks were voted on BY YOU! Your vote matters, not just in a democratic election that brings President-Elect Joe Biden to the White House next month. It also matters for creating this incredible list from twenty amazing bands.

2020 was a crazy year. The livelihood of thousands of Celtic musicians vanished in a blink of an eye. Streaming music is more popular than ever. But it pays nothing. I can’t help but wonder how many of these incredible artists will continue creating music.

So as you listen to this show, I want you to think about how you can help these amazing artists. In fact, I might throw out a few suggestions during the show.

CELTIC PODCAST NEWS

If you’re a Celtic musician, I still have a free eBook that I want you to read. It’s called Celtic Musicians Guide to Digital Music. It includes a lot of the things I learned over the years promoting Celtic music online. It will be updated in the months to come. Maybe I’ll even finally officially release it. In the meantime, just subscribe to the Celtic Music Magazine and it’s yours.

As a patron, you get to hear episodes before regular listeners. When we hit a milestone, you get an extra-long episode. You can pledge a dollar or more per episode and cap how much you want to spend each month over on Patreon.

A super special thanks to our Celtic Legends: Morgan George, Samir Malak, Patricia Conner, Carol Baril, Miranda Nelson Designs, Nancie Barnett, Kevin Long, Lynda MacNeil, robert michael kane, Tiffany Knight, Annie Lorkowski, Travis Senzaki, Hank Woodward, Shawn Cali

And of course, many Celtic musicians started Patreon pages in 2020. I created a blog that highlights over 70 Celtic musicians and bands with Patreon pages. And it’s still growing. Check out the Celtc Music on Patreon here.

I WANT YOUR FEEDBACK

Ye know. I love getting feedback for the podcast. I love hearing what you think of this show and sharing it here. While feedback is great right here, it’s also super important in a public setting. Like reviews on iTunes or your favorite podcatcher. It’s also hugely important to musicians.

If you enjoy an artist’s music, tell someone. You can do it as a review on iTunes or Amazon. You can post how much you love a song on social media. You can email the artist and say thanks.

In the meantime, 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. Email a voicemail message to celticpodcast@gmail.com

Jason Denen emailed: "Hey Marc, thanks so much for all the celtic Christmas music. This episode had so many wonderful tracks I hadn't heard before. I'm lucky to have a job where I can work from home, but being in the same spot every days gets wearying. It's great to have new music to fill the space. I find most Christmas music that gets played on the radio trends to the same old tracks. I do like the classics, but they get so overplayed during the holidays."

Georgy Grigoryev emailed: "Hi Marc, Is it possible to listen Irish and Celtic music podcast on Spotify? I tried to look for it but there’s no results."

Sadly, no but you can enjoy the Celtic Top 20 on Spotify through our Top Irish & Celtic Music Playlist. This playlist has many of the tracks featured on the Celtic Top 20 for the past 15 years. Sadly, it doesn’t have all. Some are no longer available. But it has most of them.

J Dickerson saw my moniker and asked: "Ok.  What does Celtfather mean?"

Celtfather was a nickname given to me by Les Howard of The Signal Podcast. I was one of the earliest and biggest promoters of independent Celtic music on the internet starting back in 1999. Everyone else was going through the traditional promotional means through radio, magazines and anywhere a publicist would send your material.

I took a different strategy. I created an internet newsletter and website with the Celtic Music Magazine. In 2005, I started the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast. I soon had the #1 most-downloaded podcast for Celtic music in the world. So when I met Les, he came up with The Celtfather moniker. I loved it and started using it to brand myself. Of course, in 2010, it took on new meaning when my first daughter was born.
