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.

I was putting together this week’s show when I realized the show was very instrumental heavy. Until very recently, the Celtic supergroup, Lúnasa, played entirely instrumental music. So I figured why not just make this episode another fully instrumental episode of great Celtic music.

Lúnasa is also performing at IrishFest Atlanta next weekend. The Irish & Celtic Music Podcast is a proud sponsor of this year’s 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.

Request for more Audio Intros.

    Fletch emailed: "Hi Marc, I have no idea if you're ever played anything by CastleBay but they're a friend of a friend so I figured I should let you know. Thanks!"

    Shel O'Toole emailed: "Hi Marc, As I was listening to the Jigs and Reels of Ireland #576 I was inspired to share the episode with the session I attend at the Munster Arms Hotel in Ballarat.   The session plays some great tunes and some of today’s tunes would certainly be embraced.  I only got to write down the name of one tune that I loved: Hector the Hero by Celtic Grass.

    I have a 15 minute floorpspot at a Folk night at Creswick tonight.  I find listening to your show helps calm my nerves and focus on my musicality.  It’s off to rehearse a few songs for me now.  Enjoy your weekend. Sliantè"

    Kinnfolk replied to the Celtic Music Magazine request for more bands: "Hi Marc! I got some bands for ya, here they are:

    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?
