Greetings Celtic Music Lovers,
I want to thank everyone who sent gifts and their congratulations for the news of my daughter. Kenzie is due in one week, and I am as excited as can be.
IRISH & CELTIC MUSIC PODCAST UPDATED
As promised, I have several shows scheduled for the podcast while I take a break to raise my daughter.
This week, I have a very special feature of Jed Marum’s CD Soul of a Wander. You can listen to the entire album in podcast form, or on the website.
Once you’re done listening to Jed’s liquid, honey voice, you will want to race over to Jed Marum’s website and buy a copy of Soul of a Wanderer.

CELTIC PODCAST HAS A NEW VOICEMAIL NUMBER
The podcast has a new voicemail number! Call 678-CELT-POD. That’s 678-235-8763 and leave a voicemail comment.
Not sure what to say? Try “Hi, this [your name], you’re listening to the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast!”
CELTIC PODCAST IS NOW ON FACEBOOK
A while back, Jasper setup a Celtic Podcast Facebook group. The problem with groups is that they only allow a limited number of members. So this month, I started an Irish & Celtic Music Podcast Facebook profile. It features the latest shows, but you’ll also find links to articles, CD reviews and Celtic MP3s straight from the Celtic MP3s Music Magazine.
Get it while it happens when you join the podcast page on facebook.
CELTIC WRITERS WANTED
There are several new reviewers now associated with the Celtic MP3s Music Magazine. But I would like to see more people involved. Do you write articles on Celtic culture, news, history, geneology, legends, stories or more? Please consider contributing your content to the magazine. It’s a great way for you to get involved in your Celtic community!
Contact your firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.

INDIE CELTIC BANDS NEED YOUR HELP
Over the past few months, I’ve done a BIG push of the Celtic iMixes on iTunes. I’m not giving those up, but I thought it was time to get you a wee bit more involved.
There are hundreds of indie Celtic bands that have no support of a label or no money to hire a publicist to promote their music (I’m one of them). Many of them also forget to ask their fans for help. This month, I’d like to ask for your help for your favorite Celtic band or artist. Here’s how:
1. Pick your favorite Celtic artists to promote.
2. Ask this same question online: Who is your favorite Celtic musician or band?
3. Then post who your favorite group is and why.
4. Make sure to add a link to the band’s website.
5. Finally, cross-post that link to your various social networks.
And if you want to share it on the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast Facebook page, I’d love to hear your thoughts. Oh! And while you’re there, I’d love you to share the latest news from your favorite Celtic band as well.

NEW CELTIC INVASION VACATIONS
Wouldn’t it be amazing to walk among the roling green hills of Ireland? Picture the texture of standing stones, the sounds of Irish fiddle, and the wet taste of Guinness on your lips and you’re just now beginning to understand how cool it will be next June when you join me on another Celtic Invasion of Ireland.
Marc’s annual trip is scheduled for June 13-20, 2011. Find all the details when you visit the website at www.celticinvasion.com.
