Today’s show is brought to you by Celtic Invasion Vacations
Every year, I take Celtic music fans on an adventure of a lifetime. This is not your typical wham-bam-thank you m’aam tour. We travel in small groups. We explore the Celtic history of different regions. We don’t need to see everything, because this is a vacation. Instead, our invasion brings out the relaxation and magic of our adventure. In 2018, you can join me on a Celtic Invasion of the Isle of Skye in Scotland. Sign up to the mailing list at celticinvasion.com.
