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

It's funny how when I come up with an episode title I like, the whole show seems to take on a mood that seems just like the title. That's certainly the case for the Wild Geese in a Summer Storm. Just wait til you get to the bagpipes. If that doesn't bring it home, nothing will. Great indie Celtic music from Hearthfire Duo, Andy Lamy, An Triur, Battlefield Band, Rebecca Gilbert and Kellswater Bridge, Jed Marum, Black Market Haggis, McGinty, Scottish Octopus, Mickey Coleman, The Freestylers of Piping, Niteworks, Murder the Stout, Leaping Lulu.
