Paul & Judith wrote shared a picture in the shownotes: "Hey Marc, We listened to this fantastic podcast whilst driving back to the ferry port at Ouistreham, Normandie, in northern France from La Loire to catch the ferry back home to Southern England. It made the drive go so much quicker! Thank you so much for putting it together – we really appreciate all your efforts!"

Tess Walsh shared a picture on Facebook and wrote. "Enjoying your podcast while drinking my nana's tea and doing homework. Thank you for keeping me focused, keep up the good work."

In last week's Celtic Music Magazine, I asked what people were doing for Halfway to St. Patrick's Day.

Dan Diviney wrote: "Hi there Marc, I’ll be celebrating Halfway to St. Paddy’s Day with Across the Pond again this year. We’re at The Garryowen Irish Pub in Gettysburg, PA."

Johnston Davidson wrote: "Our band, 33 1/3rd, will be celebrating Halfway to St Patrick's Day at Molly Malone's in Townsville, North Queensland, Australia, supporting traditional and contemporary Celtic music in the Southern Hemisphere. Warm work! Have a great day!"

Elaine Christian wrote: "The Southwest Celtic Music Association is producing a halfway to St. Pat's show but we're doing it on Friday Sept. 16"

Luiz Armando Capra Filho wrote: "Hello Marc! I love your show! And living in Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul. The southernmost state of Brazil. I found your podcast during the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela in 2014. Since then, I follow weekly. I am a teacher and I listen to your show as I travel to the next town where I teach. Thank you, all the groups and Celtic fans. It lights up my days. Buen camino ! Viva Santiago! (Amazing show 275)"

Lynda Noble MacNeil wrote: "I love that you are playing such wonderful and off the beaten track music. I always hear a tune that I just have to learn! I will be celebrating “halfway to St. Patrick’s Day” on the 18th, making music with my band Gaelic Muses at Lily Mac’s Irish Pub and Restaurant in Sunnyvale, CA. We will be mixing it up with piratey tunes, to link in to “talk like a pirate day”. We are 3 chicks in corsets playing Celtic music, both rock and traditional. I know we’ll have a blast! We don’t have a cd yet, maybe this year, but when it happens, I’ll be absolutely thrilled to hear one of our tunes on your podcast. Meanwhile, you give me constant inspiration. Thank you SO much!"

* My band, Kilted Kings, plays heroic, Celtic world music in kilts. We have a new Kickstarter with just two weeks to go.

The Wee Heavies are also crowfunding their second album on Indiegogo.

* I want to thank my Celtic Superstars: Derek Lineberry, Lynda MacNeil, Peter Tilghman, Steven, Bryan Brake, John Sharkey White, II, Theresa Sullivan, John Bilderback, Rian P Kegerreis, Johnny Berry, Shawn Cali. They all pledge $10 or more per episode. Your generosity is just amazing. I was looking at your past donations, and, wow! You are all too kind. Thank you so much!

I also want to thank our newest patron, JJmollpus, who signed up this week and brought us a wee bit closer to our next Milestone. We're now $46 away from a goal that will bring you two-hours of Celtic Women in your earbuds. We've had that goal sitting there for a while. It's time to up the ante. If we can raise that $46 per episode before the end of September, to hit that next milestone, then I will extend the next three shows in October by 30 minutes. Yes. There will be a lot of music. You'll get a 2-hour special on Celtic Women. And you'll get three hour and half shows.

And remember that your generosity will also go back into our Celtic community because I donate 10% of your pledges to Celtic non-profits. Go sign up right now and become a Patron of the Podcast today, because we are helping you celebrate Celtic culture through music.

Craig Winterburn shared a picture and wrote on Facebook: "Been missing this show so bad. Been living in fields for some weeks in my yurt and with a new phone and terrible reception couldn't hook up properly. Love it. Thanks Mark."

Jan Czenkusch emailed a picture: "This time we are on I 72 heading to Weston, Missouri. We are going to catch a Tullamore show at O'Malleys."

Ryan Russell sent a picture of some chainmail he's working on while listening.

WhiskeyAndJesus writes on iTunes: "I love this podcast. I've been listening for a few years now, and it keeps getting better. Marc Gunn is devoted to Celtic music and even gives back some of his Patreon donations to nonprofits. I enjoy hearing sound bites and comments from other listeners, and I think the balance between talk and music is just right. I feel like I have gotten to know Marc through my time as a listener. Keep it up!"

They are a pretty fun and funny band that is perfect if you do another pub songs episode, they are also the main band that got me into this type of music. Well, I have a lot of catching up to do with your series, Thank you"

Summer Cruiser posted on iTunes: "Upbeat and happy music! Great podcast, well-spoken host, fun/good music. All around excellent podcast"

Mark Hughes wrote on iTunes: "Fantastic resource for Celtic music. I am a long-time subscriber and supporter on Patreon. Please give this podcast a listen. You will not be disappointed."

Anthony Becker posted on Facebook: "Listening to The Irish and Celtic Music Podcast on the way from my hotel to the Broadcast Center in Rio De Janiero, Brazil for the Olympics. Here I am passing the Velodrome where the indoor cycle events went on. Nothing better than a bit of great Celtic music to make the walk, and day go faster — thinking about going home at Rio 2016 Olympic Park.

Katherine Thompson emailed a photo and wrote: "I've been listening to your show since its second year running, back when I was in high school, and I just wanted to let you know how grateful I am to have a running constant in my life from high school to college to serving in the Peace Corps in Zambia. When I'm not teaching 8th grade English at a rural school or writing my own music, I'm often in my mud hut listening to the Irish and Celtic Music Podcast, cheerfully blaring it for my entire village to hear! It's helped me combat homesickness over the past two years, but I only have two weeks left before I finish this life-changing assignment and I wanted to let you know that you played a huge part in it."

Hi Marc, I've been meaning to email you for awhile now, but have been remiss in getting it out. It's actually my birthday today and the latest Irish & Celtic Music podcast was a great present! My son is also performing tonight, as he plays Viola in the 7th grade orchestra at his middle school. Just a couple of weeks ago we both we're in recital at our local Suzuki school (my piece was Loch Lommond). Sorry I'm rambling here, but just want to say how great the podcast continues to be and thank you for all the work you put into it. I usually listen while I'm walking and here are a couple of pictures of springtime in East Tennessee. Thanks again for you do on the podcast. Slainte! Hank Woodward

Hey Marc, thanks for enriching my life with your wonderful podcast. I’m a 27-year-old violinist in Melbourne, Australia. I’m battling chronic illness which means I can’t move far from bed lately, so it’s wonderful to have such dependably brilliant music to soothe me, lift my spirits and help keep me warm as our winter sets in! Thanks Carl
