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.

Before you fill up a jug with whiskey, make sure you clean it out first. That’s the lesson from Band O’Brothers. Or is it? And curiosity just might kill you when you are out in the Black of space.

0:56 - “There's a Bug in Cabin Six” from As Long As I’m Flyin’

3:19 - NEWS

  • I have a great story about a spider from Band o’Brothers today. I like the idea of playing a song that could pair with my guest. But I could only think of one bug type song. This is a song with lyrics by Rie Sheridan Rose. The lyrics were shortened to make it run smoother.
  • Today’s show is brought to you by my Gunn Runners on Patreon. There’s a new MP3 of Finnegan’s Wake up on Patreon.
  • I am performing at Dragon Con this weekend. I have a show of Firefly Drinking Songs and Cat songs on Friday if you’re at the convention. You can find all of my Dragon Con shows on the Bards website.

4:25 - There are at least two sides to every story. The Band O’Brothers share both for their song “Whiskey Spider”.

8:32 - “Whiskey Spider” by Band O’Brothers from Band O’Brothers
