Michael Conners emailed: "Hi Marc; What a surprise, I just signed up with Patreon and the first email I get from you announces the podcast "Celtic in Connemara". We just returned from a ten day tour of the Midlands and Connemara in July. Before we left I investigated learning Gaelic but gave up when I could’t find a good source online. Duolingo sounds good and having a “club” to stay motivated seems a good idea as well. I just signed up. I really enjoy your podcasts. I’ve been listening for a few months, what’s best is that it’s all new music generally. Today I found Jim Sharkey… wonderful all the best. Michael in Lincoln, RI"

Rex Edwards emailed: "Was promoting the podcast at Northern Virginia CCE Festival (sorry for bad pic). This group punches well above weight led by Billy McComiskey, Aoife Scott and Open the Door for Three with Liz Knowles. Billy's son (one of many) has a new group Cover the Buckle that was also great. Keep up the great sounds."
