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.

You can join us with an auditory and visual adventure through podcasts and videos. In episode #191, I talk the itinerary of the 2020 Origins of Celtic Invasions. We will explore Venice, Vicenza, and Padova. We will see castles, sail rivers, explore hills and mountains, and eat amazing Italian food.
