Welcome to Pub Songs & Stories, the virtual Public House for Celtic culture and change through music.

I am Marc Gunn. I play Sci F'Irish music. I want to take you on an adventure. I'll share the stories behind my songs as we explore pop culture media through the lens of Irish & Celtic music. You will have fun and sing along, and maybe get a far too real glimpse of yourself.

Thus begins a series of episodes highlighting some of the best Celtic music online. Today's show is about Celtic Folk Bands which I describe as acoustic Celtic music groups based in the folk tradition. These are the groups that stand out most for me. I'd love to hear your thoughts and band suggestions. Coming soon: Best Celtic Rock, Best Celtic Traditional, Best Celtic Soloists, and then Celtic Music Artists You Should Keep an Ear Open for in 2011.
