Awesome Scottish music is pretty easy to find. There's a lot of brilliant traditional songs as well as modern songs and songwriters coming out of Scotland. This show touches on a teeny, tiny portion of the Scottish music I have in my catalog. You can expect a lot more when we hit our $500 milestone on Patreon. In the meantime, enjoy music from The Rogues, Bonnie Rideout, Battlefield Band, Vicki Swan & Jonny Dyer, Ed Miller, Andrew McKee, Wicked Tinkers, Don Grieve, Brobdingnagian Bards, Caledonia Swing, Lady Moon, The Freestylers of Piping, Jasper Coal, Hugh Morrison, Jiggernaut, Kilted Kings.

Standing stones are pretty awesome and inspiring to see. But imagine 3000 of them, together… and you, able to make a daily sojourn among the stones. This June, you can see the Carnac Stones up close and personal, just a 20 minute walk from where we are staying in the coastal village of Carnac in Northwest France. You have until February 15, 2017 to reserve your spot on the next Celtic Invasion Vacation. Enjoy the culture, history and legends on a timeless adventure with a small group of 6-8 invaders.

I discovered your podcast through the celtic roots podcast with raymond in belfast northern ireland. It all started back 2011 when I was working in the desert, with lots of my irish workmates. I was inspired and got addicted to listening to celtic music. Best of luck to your program, I'm lookin forward to be one of your patron. Cheers”

Ma-Ho-Ney posted on iTunes: “Great music, love the themes! I am making my own top music playlist based off of the songs I hear on the podcasts. I used the detailed podcast descriptions to identify the artist and songs and then get them from iTunes! A lot of great music, artists and free stuff! Worth subscribing, and not just around Saint Patrick's Day!

Martha Meyers emailed a picture: “Boo for just making apps for the robot and the fruit. Your developer should look into resources for easily porting iOS apps as Universal Windows Apps. Now that’s done, attached is a pic of the blanket I mentioned in the comments for show 291.”
