My latest CD features Sci F’Irish music. That means it is original songs fusing pop culture themes with Irish drinking songs. There are some traditional music on the album. But mostly, it features songwriting by Marc Gunn with guests including: Screeched Inn, The Muckers, Jamie Haeuser, Sam Gillogly, Nathan Deese, and Mikey Mason.

Selcouth means, “when everything is strange and different, yet you find it marvelous anyway.”

The album is not completely Celtic and it’s not just science fiction and fantasy. It’s a fusion of the two. It’s heartfelt and a lot of fun.

It’s now on sale in my Bandcamp store. Check out Selcouth now.

    Kennedy Johnson emailed: "Marc, I haven't dropped a message in awhile, just wanted to say that the St Patrick's Day Podcast was wonderful !!! I love the music/podcast.

    I hope you and your family are well.   My Daughter and I went down to the KC SPD parade.

    Sounded like the Atlanta SPD parade was a cold one - Kansas City had wonderful weather, Sunny 74 that day.

    Estimated over 400,000 attended the parade that day. I made a wonderful corned beef and cabbage dinner that night - so good.

    I am hoping to catch a live show one day, probably in Texas as it's closer to KC.

    Also hoping you'll be a performer at the Kansas City Irish Fest Labor Day weekend (Sept.) Slainte”
