I am working on next year’s…


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. Learn more about the invasion at


Two weeks after the episode is launched, I compile the latest Celtic Top 20 votes to update a playlist on Spotify, Amazon Music, and YouTube. These are the results of your voting. You can help these artists out by following the playlists and adding tracks you love to your playlists. Subscribe to our newsletter to find out who was added this week.

    Matt LW wrote on Facebook: "Hi Marc! I first listened to the show back in 2006 when I was a teenager mowing lawns for work  -  you introduced me to Irish and Celtic music. 16 years later I'm a stay - at - home dad, and while my 3 - month - old son helps me cook dinner as we listen to show #546, it's truly a pleasure to introduce him to Celtic music the same way. Thanks for your long commitment to the show!"

    Teri Hill emailed from Cedar City, Utah: "Hi Marc, I stumbled onto your podcast not too long ago (within the last 6 - 10 months or so) and fell in love with the music. I started listening to the beginning of the podcast and I'm working my way to the recent shows. I'm currently at episode 201 (2015). I've enjoyed every minute! I'll be caught up to the newer episodes soon! Slainte!"

    alec felinus emailed: "Hi Marc, I'm afraid I've had to stop listening to the show. Don't get me wrong, I love the music, but the Stitcher app stopped working for me and I switched to Spotify. I have searched repeatedly, but can't get The Irish Celtic Music Podcast on the new app. Is there any way you could put it out on the Spotify platform? I would think that it could only increase the listenership."
