TRAVEL WITH CELTIC INVASION VACATIONS
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 http://celticinvasion.com/

Jocie Hoch emailed a photo from Big Sur, California: "Hi Marc! I listen to your podcasts at various times while doing ranch work, but always while milking goats; the girls seem to love the Celtic music as well! Thanks for all the great music!"

Cameron morgan emailed photos from 45,000 feet: "Marc, Greetings from 45,000’ feet! I’m currently listening to your most recent episode while flying over these great United States (don’t worry the music cuts out when we have to speak to ATC) I have been a fan since almost the beginning of the show and listen to every one. I just wanted to thank you so much for all the amazing music over the years and I have collected quite a few wonderful albums from artists because of this show.
Recently I hiked the grand Tetons with my family while listening to “life is too short” and it was the perfect backdrop for the beautiful mountains and fun hikes. I can’t wait for my little ones to grow up a bit more so we can join you on one of your Celtic invasion vacations! God bless you and your family and thanks so much again!"
Shel O'Toole, Singer of Songs, Teller of Tales, Weaver of Webs emailed: "Hi Marc, Thanks for your company today as I was trying to work. I love that you honour women’s voices, their storytelling, the stories, the melodies and harmonies.
Thank you to each of the women I listened to today. I felt myself embraced by the divine creative feminine. Then came a connection to culture and in the last song by Amelia Hogan “Cornish Lads” the recognition my music is influenced by Celtic heritage.
Here’s a song of mine I’d love too share with you. Click here to listen.
Have a great week Marc, Sliantè"
