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.



Nov 2, 2016

Which is scarier: Halloween or the U.S. Presidential Elections? I think the later. To make Election Day easier, I present to you an Election Day Drinking Game. This episode will get you warm and toasty drunk enough for more drinking on Election Day, thanks to Spoon University. Music from Marc Gunn, Syr, Andrew McKee, Merry Wives of Windsor.
