    I'm very pleased to bring you an extra interesting show today. I have some big news for the week, but to some degree it feels like repetition of news I've already shared. Yes, it is a progress report, and I made a lot of progress, but I need something different. So this week, I decided to step back a couple hundred years to live like a bard of old and share with you the news of the week, like bards might've done. Since I winged the entire recording, it's far from perfect, but at least you're getting the info. I'd love your thought on it too.   News Scottish Songs of Drinking & Rebellion CD is done.

    It was another busy week. I'm still at work on two CDs: Scottish Songs of Drinking & Rebellion and A Celtic Christmas. Both are nearing completion. I have one more song to finish mixing for the Scottish CD and I'm getting ready to send the Christmas album to the printers. It was fully funded on Kickstarter as of yesterday. This is a huge triumph for me. My compilation CDs are incredible tools for promoting indie Celtic bands. And I am SO happy to be able to help these bands receive greater attention. If we raise enough money, I plan to hire a publicist to give the album even more attention. The other great thing about this compilation is that it will also be used to raise money for both the podcast and Celtic non-profits. I've given away over $15K to Celtic non-profits since I started producing compilation CDs. I'm extremely excited to have such a fine compilation that will raise even more money every Christmas.

    We are just two days away from the big Invasion of DragonCon 2013. This year, I will be performing with the Brobdingnagian Bards for a weekend of Celtic Renaissance insanity. You never what's gonna happen. In preparation, I decided to record another Pub Songs Podcast live on Google Hangouts. I am thrilled to report that the sounds issues that haunted the last two podcasts are resolved. I used my Edirol digital recorder to capture his podcast recording while my computer managed the video recording to YouTube. This meant, I had good sound and as good video as I can get. The next show won't be released on Google Hangouts, I don't think... But it will be coming live from DragonCon as I perform the last concert of the convention at 2:30pm in the Podcast Track. I hope to see you there!   News Watch this podcast on YouTube Memories of Middle Earth (remixed and remastered) goes on sale on September 22, pre-release on iTunes on Sept 3rd DragonCon Schedule Why My Own Blog Is Better Than Facebook Or Twitter Vote for you
