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 podcast was founded not just on pub songs but Irish pub songs. I haven't played any in a while. So while searching for popular Irish pub songs, I found a nice list on Irish Central. I have recorded versions of many of these songs. So I thought I would share them in this episode along with a couple awesome song surprises from Brobdingnagian Bards, Socks in the Frying Pan and Van Morrison!
