* Helping you celebrate Celtic culture through music. I am Marc Gunn. I’m a Celtic musician and podcaster. This show is dedicated to the independent Celtic musicians. Please support these artists. Share the show with your friends. And find more episodes at celticmusicpodcast.com. You can also support this podcast on Patreon.

I’m looking for some good stories to share on our companion podcast. Pub Songs & Stories is a Virtual Public House for musicians to share the stories and inspiration behind their music. If you have a story that you’d like to share about a song, from a gig, or maybe even just a piece of Celtic history that you love. Drop me an email. Put “Pub Story” in the show subject. Tell me about your story. Maybe I’ll ask you to record your story for the show.


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. And if you pledge $5 or more per episode, you’ll also get the all new music-only episodes. I introduce the show, play non-stop music for nearly an hour, and then close the show. Plus, you’ll get access to hundreds of free MP3 downloads.

A super special thanks to our newest patrons: Larry Jones, Kevin Scorzafava, Kriskorn Chindaprasert

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 http://celticinvasion.com/

Eilene Ording emailed a photo: "Marc, Here's a photo of what I do while listening to your podcast. I walk early in the morning in Kansas City, Missouri and this day, the moon was still up and walked with me.

My Scottish roots are very deep and we came to North America via Ireland. My mother's maiden name is McCamus which would equate to McKeamish or McHamish probably in Scottish. Be that as it may, we are part of Clan Gunn. One of my bucket list items is to visit the Clan Gunn Museum & Heritage Centre in Latheron, Scotland. Unfortunately, they are not open and I can't travel at the moment anyway.

I'm enjoying your podcast. I've been sending the podcast link and some band links to my son in the U.S. Navy in Guam. We share an interest in all things Celtic or Gaelic. My favorite band is Gaelic Storm (they play the KC Irish Fest every Labor Day Weekend), but I recently fell in love with Niamh Parsons' voice. I first heard her and her partner on your podcast.

Have a great day."

Rich Windsor replied to the Celtic Music Magazine: "Amazing!!! Thank you so much Marc!

Working like crazy to sell a house that my wife and I owned. Married for 35 years and she passed away from complications of MS. Its frightening how much stuff people accumulate when they stay in one place, and now I am moving to a nice small apartment for one person. As soon as I move and get my internet hooked up, will go through all of these even though it will probably be too late!  (emailing you from work!) Thanks again!

One of your favorite fans from Shoreline Washington, (just north of Seattle)."
