9:17 - CHRISTMAS WELCOME - Welcome to the Celtic Christmas Podcast. My name is Marc Gunn. I am a Celtic musician and host also of the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast. My goal is to introduce you to Celtic musicians who are making and sharing Christmas music.
If you are one such artist, or you know of one, please submit your music to the podcast. It’s very easy to do. Just complete the permission form at 4celts.com. If the music is podsafe, I will purchase it and add it to one of our upcoming shows. The sooner you submit music, the more likely you’ll be included this year.
Now the Podcast is supported by listeners like you. So today, I bring you a teaser episode, I will share a little bit of music. But I also want to let you know how you can get four more great, full-length Celtic Christmas episodes for 2020 through your generous patronage.
I’ll tell you more about it after we play some music…
