WELCOME CELTOPHILE TO CELTIC MUSIC

* Helping you celebrate Celtic culture through music. I am Marc Gunn. I’m an Atlanta  -  based musician and podcaster. You can find a link to all of the artists in the shownotes, along with show times and chapters for each song when you visit our website at celticmusicpodcast.com. If you hear music you love, please email artists to let them know you heard them on the Irish and Celtic Music Podcast.

When you buy one of our compilation CDs, listen to it on streaming, or if you become a Patron of the Podcast, I donate 10% of the money earned to Celtic non - profits, typically Celtic festivals. We’ve donated over over $45,000 since I started this podcast.

This year, I picked IrishFest Atlanta to be the recipient of our donation. The Irish & Celtic Music Podcast is a proud sponsor of IrishFest Atlanta.

IrishFest Atlanta was launched November 2013 to promote the culture of Ireland through the country’s traditional music, song, dance, and language. The vision of IrishFest Atlanta’s original founders was to create a weekend of cultural performances, lectures, and workshops in a festive environment appealing to community members of all ages and varying familiarity of all things Irish.

So each week from now until the festival takes place November 4 - 5, 2022, I’m gonna play music from an artist performing at the festival.

Tickets are now on sale for the festival. You can see a list of performance times and workshops on the festival website at IrishFestAtlanta.org.

    The Piketon Massacre

    The Piketon Massacre

    The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County. Four crime scenes, thirty-two gunshot wounds, eight members of the Rhoden family left dead in their homes. Two years later a local family of four, the Wagners, are arrested and charged with the crimes. As the Wagners await four back-to-back capital murder trials, the KT Studios team revisits Pike County to examine: crime-scene forensics, upcoming legal proceedings, and the ties that bind the victims and the accused. As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?
