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.




Dec 12, 2018

I'm picky about Christmas music. I prefer upbeat, fun Christmas songs. Good sing alongs. It's a challenge to find those with the Irish and Celtic Christmas music albums. But I have a few favorites to share with you in the pub today. 

You'll also hear some Blue Sun Holiday Spectacular Tour news, thoughts about kids music, the future of this podcast, and news about Coffee with The Celtfather.

Speaking of which, the last Coffee with the Celtfather show of 2018 is today at noon.

Enjoy Irish Christmas music from Kilted Kings, The Selkie Girls, The Irish Rovers, Brobdingnagian Bards, The Gothard Sisters, Vicki Swan & Jonny Dyer, Marc Gunn, and Mikey Mason.
