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.

0:34 - “Breathing” by Marc Gunn from Selcouth
I struggle daily to be present in my relationship with my wife, family, and friends. I’m not good at being present. My mind is moving and wandering too much. It’s during those times, I feel it’s necessary to take a breath. Breathe deeply and focus on what’s truly important.

TRAVEL WITH CELTIC INVASION VACATIONS. Every year, I take a small group of Celtic music fans on the relaxing adventure of a lifetime. We don't see everything. Instead, we stay in one area. We get to know the region through its culture, history, and legends.

You have just a few more days to save on this year’s. You can find out more about this exciting trip. Join the invasion at

18:41 -- “Tough Times” by Marc Gunn from Selcouth
This is a song about mistakes. When times are tough, we can do dumb and selfish things. The challenge then is to recognize our error, and make a change.
