Every year I host Celtic Invasion Vacations. These are relaxing adventure with a small group of Celtic music travelers, just like you. We don't see everything. Instead, we stay in one area. We get to know the region through it's culture, history, and legends.

That's the normal pitch I make each and every week. Sometimes that description seems a bit incomplete. There's not enough information. So I want to get your questions. What would you like to know about joining one of my Celtic Invasion Vacations. You can email me with any questions you have and I will create a podcast episode with more details
