* Helping you celebrate Celtic culture through music. My name is Marc Gunn. I am a Celtic and Geek musician and podcaster. This show 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.

I've been running into a problem of recent. A lot tracks I've published in this podcast recently had explicit language. I've tried over the years to keep this show clean, free from foul language. But it's gotten difficult. So I decided to announce a slight change to future procedures.

I will still continue to to try and release a clean show, no explicit language. But I removed the clean content rating on all the feeds except Apple Podcasts. That's because each podcatcher shares music differently. Spotify and Stitcher download a copy and then stores it on their servers. That means, I cannot adjust the file after it goes out.

If you listen via Apple Podcasts, then each file is taken from the Libsyn server individually. So I can edit the file and it will update on Apple Podcasts, Google Play and iHeartRadio for all future downloads.

What this means for you is IF you hear explicit language on one of those podcatchers, first, I apologize if it offends you. Second, I would recommend you email me to let me know. Third, you can delete that file and once it is fixed, you'll be able to listen to the show with clean language after.

I thank you so much for listening


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 it's culture, history, and legends. You can join us with an auditory and visual adventure through podcasts and videos.

2019 is the Celtic Invasion of Star Wars. 2020 is the Origins of Celtic Invasions. You can find out more about these two exciting trips. Join the invasion at
