* Helping you celebrate Celtic culture through music. I am Marc Gunn. I’m a musician and podcaster. I share my love of Irish and Celtic music from around the globe with you. I want to introduce you to some amazing Celtic bands and musicians.

The artists in this show need your support which you can do by buying their music or telling a friend about the band you found. You can find a link to all of the artists, along with show times and chapters for each song when you visit our website at You can also support this podcast on Patreon.


First let me start with an apology. Last episode, I shared a pet peeve. I said Facebook was my least favorite place to get comments. That’s true. But according to my website, I was wrong. There was some old info that said EXACTLY that. Ugh. I screwed up.


I have two St Patrick’s Day celebrations happening in the Atlanta area this weekend. On Saturday, March 14, I’m at Ironshield Brewing in Lawrenceville, GA. On Sunday, March 15, I’m at Three Taverns Brewery in Decatur, GA. You can come eat some humble pie with me… or at least toast a pint of beer with me. I’d love to meet you.


I’d love to share my love of Celtic culture through music with your podcast. Or we can talk about science fiction, fantasy, podcasting, or even cats. I’d love to chat with you. If you know a podcaster who might be interested, drop me a line.


The next Pub Songs & Stories podcast is a packed extra long episode for St Patrick’s Day. Jon Pilatzke shares some stories about the late Paddy Maloney of The Chieftains. The Muckers wrote a song on a Flogging Molly cruise. Guilty pleasures come in many shapes. What’s mine? I’ll give you a hint. It comes in plaid.

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.

Hanbo WANG emailed: "Hi Marc, I'm Hanbo, a new listener of the podcasts from Beijing, China.  I am a fan of Celtic culture in general. Language, folklore, jewellery, movies  -  -  a list without ending!

Your podcast channel just popped up when I typed 'Celtic' to find anything I might be interested in on GooglePodcasts. I am so happy to discover this channel which brings so many serendipities!

I was reading books about Celtic myths while listening to the podcasts. The modern Irish music and the traditional stories  -  -  what a combination! Thank you so much for presenting the brilliant channel!"

David Gowrylu emailed: "Hi Marc,  I’m an avid listener of your Irish/Celtic music podcast as Celtic has always been a go - to for me in my lifetime.

I was actually in a band, many moons ago, that put out a demo cd, and I think it might actually be something that would fit your podcast.  Let me know how I can send the files to you and you can enjoy them and feel free to put them on the podcast. Always looking for ways to make people smile and this band did just that.  Slainte"
