I'm sure you will enjoy the music and the people here at Celtic Radio! The people here are really nice. They become your family. It will be great hearing from you both. Seana, wow you are doing wonderful with the English.
Hullo.... I hope that I've not been guilty of some sort of breach of etiquette by posting in other areas here before formally introducing myself. My name is Kevin and I'm an artist and writer- which means I work another job in order to get a steady paycheck... You can see some of my stuff on my web site (www.kevinbuntin.com) Most of the work I do- written and sculptural- is influenced by and deals with fantasy. Celtic mythology is among the many sources of inspiration and material for my work.
I also have a passion for celtic music- and not just because of my own ancestry. I was turned on to this site by a good friend and fellow artist who did so via Live 365. I then discovered this site. Or was it the other way round....? Anyway, I'm afraid I've been here for a bit, but only recently had a peek into this section of the rather vast Celtic Radio web site.
I was so happy to find this wonderful place and new source for one of my fav music genres. We had a great Celtic music show on a local Public radio station, but it got dumped....
So...I don't know how often I'll have time to be here in the postings area, but I'd like to play now and again. But, working a second shift post and writing and doing my sculpts while keeping up with a web site AND being a husband and father.... well... anyway. HELLO!!!!
I first just want to say what a lovely site this is! I am really enjoying the music in the background as I type this. I first fell in love with this type of music while listening to "The Thistle and Shamrock" on my local public radio station, but soon found that the one hour of celtic music a week just isn't enough! So I went looking online to see what I could find and I fortunately ran into this site. I had a chance to visit Scotland while I was in college and I never wanted to leave. My friends really had to keep an eye on me so that I didn't turn up "accidently" missing when our plane took off and headed back to the US. It was an experience I will never forget!
I hope to be able to get to know some of you, till then I will just keep listening!
Thank you for your warm welcome. This forum reflects the kindness of the most people who are interested in Celtic music. Maybe I wouldn't feel so comfortable, if I talked to people who write about Punk Rock.
I'll try to communicate a lot, so my English should improve with time. (At least I hope so.)
@WizardofOwls @Rindy1202 Thank you for the encouragement! You know how to soothe a newbie.
@emerald-eyedwanderer "You're English sounds better than mine!" Believe me - without a dictionary it wouldn't sound at all.
@Monarch's Own Ah, an emigrant with enviable casualness. I'll take you as an example and worry less.
It's really great that a place like this exists on the internet.
I am so glad you guys found us here! I don't think you'll find a nicer bunch of people anywhere on the net! And the music is wonderful too! When joined us here, you became part of our large and growing family! So kick off your shoes, make yourself comfortable, turn up the music and visit with us for a spell! And come back often!
Welcome home my friends!

Thanks Mary, thanks Allen for you warm and kind welcome. I've been here for a while just listening to the great music, so finally I figured I'd best come play in the "lists" with everyone else. Such a diverse and varied crowd, of all ages and perspectives and beliefs! I love it! Because here we all meet on common ground, and I think that says more than anything else about music, about this kind of music and the people who are drawn to it.
Thank you and hello, Iago! Everyone seems quit nice- that is those with whom I've been fortunate enough to chat with so far. I'm having quit a bit of fun! And looking forward to meeting more people from this community.
