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.

Who was the original Braveheart and how Tuatha Dea is reclaiming that title from William Wallace? Plus, we sing a tribute to Robert the Bruce with one of Robert Burns’ most-famous songs.
