    Happy Thanksgiving! And welcome to the final regular episode of the year. There are, of course, more episodes coming in December. But I needed a place to stop all of the voting for the Celtic Top 20. So I want to spend time with my family and work on the Celtic Christmas Podcast.

    Are you looking to start a podcast? You will need a solid, reliable podcast host. I use Libsyn and have done so since I started podcasting 17 years ago. And yes, I tried other hosts. But I ended up losing thousands of listeners because they couldn’t keep up with the largest podcast of Celtic music in the world. That was 12 years ago, but Libsyn continues to prove themselves as the oldest and best podcast host in the world. They offer detailed and accurate stats. Incredible customer service. And they even have their own top notch podcast about the podcast industry. We need more Celtic podcasts. So why not start your own. Use the coupon code CELTIC to let them know I sent you.

    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.

Always a joy to listen too!

Marc,

I discovered your podcast about a year after you started it and have enjoyed each and every episode. I come from Irish, English and Scottish stock so Celtic music speaks to my soul. I listen to it everywhere I go and with everything I do, out loud. When people ask me what I'm listening too I happily tell them all about your many podcasts.

You have made my life better with the Irish and Celtic Music podcast and I am forever grateful.

Thank you,
Thurman Burnley

Great Music

Many thanks to Marc Gunn for this terrific podcast! I listened to the entire back catalog (a little over 520 episodes as of this review) over the past year, and have enjoyed so many great songs, including original pieces and covers of old classics. The ICM Podcast has introduced me to many bands and individual musicians I probably would never have discovered otherwise, and some are definite new favorites.

I also appreciate that the podcast is released with chapter markers and time stamps within the notes. This makes identifying (and replaying) songs very easy.
