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.

This month, the Pub Songs Podcast is dedicated to the dragons who deserve protection. You'll hear some music from my new CD, Pirates vs. Dragons, plus some dragons songs from Brobdingnagian Bards, Boogie Knights, Gallamor The Bard, TheLoneGunman, Tania Opland and Mike Freeman's collaboration with Anne McCaffrety, and Dan the Bard.

Pirates vs. Dragons topped the charts, climbing as high as #9 on the Top Now charts where it stayed for most of August. The album is still on sale at

Join me on Concert Window on Hobbit Day, that's Thursday, September 22, 2016. I'm doing a free internet concert.

The Louisiana Renaissance Festival is my home faire. They endured two devastating floods this year. The first was called hundred year flood, happening the spring. The latest is being called a 500 year flood, because it's a near impossibility that this would happen. Nevertheless, the festival was covered in 27 feet of water. Much of the faire was submerged. There's just over two months before the festival will open. They need your support to make that happen. There are three ways you can help:

1. DONATE at
3. LIKE my Facebook VIDEO and SHARE it with all of your friends. And ask for their help.

Kilted Kings are launching a Kickstarter for our debut album "Name On My Soul". It closes on Sept 27, 2016. The music is already recorded. But we need your help to pay for duplication of the CD. Go to to support us.
