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.



Aug 30, 2010

I had a wee eye-opening this week as I realized I downplayed some of my success with Kilted For H er Pleasure in the last show. I aim bigger than most Celtic bands online. So I expect more. But in all fairness, the release of Kilted was a huge success, topping a variety of charts. AND the album is also climbing in popularity on iTunes... Already! Totally cool.

The second half of the show delves into a Celtic music idea I have for my Celtic MP3s Music Magazine. Can it be accomplished? Will it? And do you want to see it happen?

Post your comments in the shownotes below.
