I close out Dragon Con every year with the Pub Songs Podcast Live as part of the Digital Media Track. I keep that tradition alive with this virtual show.

Welcome to the Pub Songs Podcast, the Virtual Public House for Celtic Geek culture. I am your Guide. My name is Marc Gunn. Today’s show is brought to you by my Gunn Runners on Patreon. Subscribe to the podcast and download free music when you sign up at



-- Lots of new singles are coming. I created a Single and Album release schedule. It has me releasing new singles every 1-2 weeks through January with the official release of St Patrick’s Day. There’ll be traditional Irish songs, hobbit dance tunes, and songs from my next CD, Selcouth. Follow me on the streaming sites so you don’t miss these releases.

-- THURS: Coffee with The Celtfather on YouTube @ 12:00 PM EDT

Timothy Thrush emailed: "I just listened to the most recent Pub Songs podcast, and I really enjoyed 'Bright Side Of Everything'. I realize it's a live version & not a final mix so when is Selcouth slated to be released?

(BTW, the 'Buy CDs' link on that website still goes to the defunct CDBaby store.)"

I don’t have an official release date for Selcouth yet. I prefer having an album completed before I announce that date. However, I am tentatively aiming to release the album to my Kickstarter supporters by October or November at the latest. The album will be released everywhere else in the spring of next year.
