* 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.

You may not realize. I host two other podcasts. Celtfather Music & Travel is sort of a behind the scenes look at my music and travel adventures. I just recently posted an interview I did with Samantha Gillogly. She's a Celtic fiddler and violinist who will be up next. We chatted about how she fell in love with Lord of the Rings in that episode. Listen and subscribe at

I also rebranded my Pub Songs Podcast. It's now called Geek Pub Songs. The content is still pretty much the same. You'll get a lot of Celtic music plus there will be a bit more geek music. So if you've ever wondered what I meant by Geek musician, this is a good way to find out about it. Find out more at

Finally, I don't think I've mentioned it, but my next album comes out on March 6, 2018. It's called As Long As I'm Flyin' features music inspired by Joss Whedon's cancelled cult classic TV show Firefly. Go to for details.



It's easier than ever to do. Just list the show number, and the name of one or two bands. That's it. You can vote once for each episode help me create next year's Best Celtic music of 2018 episode.
