* Helping you celebrate Celtic culture through music. My name is Marc Gunn. I am a Celtic and Geek musician and podcaster. This podcast is dedicated to the indie Celtic musicians. I want to ask you to support these artists. Share the show with your friends. And find more episodes at You can also support this podcast on Patreon.

Thanks to Spencer Crawford, Kevin McDonald our newest amazing patrons.


I did an interview this summer with Samual of Visite Bretagne in the town of Auray in Brittany. From him, you can learn more about the history of the Celts of Brittany in this week's Celtfather Music & Travel at

If you want to see Auray, Brittany, I posted another vlog over on YouTube.

I'm happy to let you know that my Celtic CD Grab Bags are all gone. I put the last of those CDs in the mail yesterday. I can't believe how quickly they went. I really expected them to be around for a lot longer. But alas no.

This podcast exists due to your generosity. Every week, generous listeners pledge $1 or more per episode to keep this show in production and to pay for my time in producing it. Once again, I want to thank everyone who gives, especially right now. I usually experience I drop in patronage at this time of year, and that's with the increased production of shows that often come for free during the Christmas holidays.

I would greatly appreciate it if you would become a patron of the podcast. Whenever we hit a milestone, I bring you a two-hour special. We are $31 away from the next milestone. If we reach that goal before the end of October, you will not only get a 2-hour Celtic Rock special, but you'll also get a second 2-hour special of music that will get you as well as newbies hooked on Celtic music. Will you help us reach that goal? Please sign up today at

Dan & Rosa Hulse emailed: "Hi Marc, Two weeks ago to the day my wife and I were just returning from a week long vacation in Ireland when my wife fell and fractured her ankle in two places. So I am waiting for her in the surgical waiting room at this moment. It had been a great vacation up until then. I really appreciate the podcast and your support of independent Celtic artists. May the Craic be with you!"

Patrick Clark sent a few pictures from Anchorage, Alaska: "Hey Marc, Loving the show, I’ve been listening it to it for a number of years. I ironically listen to it while lifting, which is mainly training for the Highland games. Keep up the good work!"
