* Helping you celebrate Celtic culture through music. I am Marc Gunn. I’m a musician and podcaster. Four times a month, I share my love of Irish and Celtic music from around the globe with you. I hope you find a new favorite Celtic band or musician or fall back in love with one.

But I’m also here for the artists. 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 for each song when you visit our website at You can also support this podcast on Patreon.


Celtic Christmas Podcast is back starting this Sunday, Nov 19. The first episode is actually the Christmas episode of this podcast from last year. But more than anything, it’s a restructuring of podcast.

You’ll need to become a patron if you want the music-edition of the podcast. Instead, I plan to promote Celtic Christmas music playlists through the new podcast, while also sharing special features of Celtic musicians with Christmas music. I hope you will check it out and also subscribe and listen to the new playlists.


Because of Your kind and generous support, this show comes out at least four times a month. Your generosity funds the creation, promotion, and production of the show. It allows us to attract new listeners and to help our community grow.

As a patron, you get to hear episodes before regular listeners. When we hit a milestone, you get an extra-long episode. You can pledge a dollar or more per episode and cap how much you want to spend each month over on Patreon. Song Hengers who pledge $5 or more per episode, also get the all new music-only episodes. Plus, you’ll get access to hundreds of free MP3 downloads. Sign up in November or raise your pledge and I’ll send you a free podcast sticker!

A super special thanks to our Celtic Legends who pledge $25 or more per month on Patreon: Dan mcDade, Paul Crowley, Patricia Conner, Carol Baril, Miranda Nelson, Nancie Barnett, Kevin Long, Lynda MacNeil, robert michael kane, Tiffany Knight, Rian P Kegerreis, Annie Lorkowski, Travis Senzaki, Hank Woodward, Shawn Cali

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 can join us with an auditory and visual adventure through podcasts and videos. Learn more about the invasion at

Santiago Alba emailed a photo: "Hi there, I've followed your podcast for years.  And what a better moment to listen while on a rainy day on a commuter train between Glasgow  and Edinburgh. I am part of the Climate Summit Canadian observers here at COP26,  and today you helped me by moving my eyes from the laptop to the window of the train."
