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

It’s a gruelling route flying solo and unsupported for hundreds of miles around the south west of the UK. You’re coming on the adventure too, I’m saving up one or two shows to listen to via Bluetooth helmet en route to keep me company.

Thanks to you and all of your artists and helpers."
