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.

If you're new to this podcast, I want you to think first if you enjoyed that first song. Because if you don't like my music, you won't like this show. So stop listening now.

I have released over 20 studio albums since 2004. I thought it would be nice to make playlists of my music, when I realized, I have been publishing this podcast since 2005. This is the perfect place to create a Marc Gunn playlist. So over the next two hours, you will enjoy lots of my music, intermixed with a small sampling of my favorite bands from the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast.

I say small, because there's a lot of great music, and I also am aiming for a drinking songs feel to this show. Because that's kinda what I do. Sci Fi and Irish drinking songs, merged together in harmony.

But don't worry. There's a bunch of trad tunes in the mix as well...
