* Helping you celebrate Celtic culture through music. I am Marc Gunn.

This podcast comes out four times per month. But every three months, there’s technically an off week. That’s what this week’s show is all about.

But it is also part of a fundraising campaign for our 2024 Kickstarter.  We’re funding 100 Celtic Pins, 100 Celtic CDs, and 100 Celtic Shirts for the new year. The campaign closes on Friday. I wanted to send you one bonus episode to remind you to make a pledge to the Kickstarter to support it. This is how you can promote the podcast without filling your Facebook feed full of “Listen to this Podcast” messages.

In addition to the regular campaign rewards, I added a couple Add Ons that are only available with any other physical pledge. The one I’m excited about is the “Kiss Me I’m Sci F’Irish” album pin. If you're a geek like me, then I hope that appeals to you.

Alright on to the show.

Today’s show is an all - instrumental, upbeat exercise show. It lasts just over 40 minutes. And it is just the music.

You can find a link to all of the artists in the shownotes, along with show times, when you visit our website at celticmusicpodcast.com.


You are amazing. It is because of your generosity that you get to hear so much great Celtic music each and every week.

Your kindness pays for our engineer, graphic designer, Celtic Music Magazine editor, promotion of the podcast, and allows me to buy the music I play here. It also pays for my time creating the show each and every week.

As a patron, you get music - only episodes before regular listeners, vote in the Celtic Top 20, stand - alone stories, and you get a private feed to listen to the show.  All that for as little as $1 per episode.


  1. Go to our Patreon page.
  2. Decide how much you want to pledge every week, $1, $5, $25. Make sure to cap how much you want to spend per month.
  3. Keep listening to the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast to celebrate Celtic culture through music.

You can become a generous Patron of the Podcast on Patreon at SongHenge.com.


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.
