Biography


Marc Gunn is a rhythm and folk musician inspired by Celtic culture, science fiction, fantasy, and cats. He breathes new life into the autoharp, which continues to surprise musical veterans and fans a like for it’s unique sound and spirited energy. It’s like a satirical jam session between The Clancy Brothers and Weird Al Yankovic. It’s Celtic music, the traditional and the twisted. In 2014, his recording of “Rising of the Moon” won Best Roots Traditional in Celtic Radio Music Awards.

Gunn was there at the beginning of the 90s indie music revolution. While other bands fought to sign to a record label, Gunn started Mage Records to promote his music in the DIY fashion. Mage Records focues on fun indie Celtic and folk music. He has released over fifty albums on his Mage Records label since its inception in 1997. He continues to release between two to four new albums each year.

Using the mantra “changing your world with Celtic music”, Marc Gunn is a champion of indie Celtic music. His quest to guide the hearts and minds of Celtic music lovers earned him the nickname “The Celtfather.” His musical success led him to become a full-time musician in 2005. It’s then that he started podcasting with the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast. It was voted the #1 Best Podsafe Music Podcast in the People’s Choice Podcast Awards in 2009 and 2010 and is regularly featured on iTunes. His Celtic Music Magazine is published twice monthly and goes out to over 21,000 subscribers. He has given away over 10,000,000 MP3s since 1999. He allows fans to download and share his most-popular songs straight from his website for FREE!

Gunn began his Celtic journey in 1999 with Austin’s three-time award-winning duo, the Brobdingnagian Bards. He performed at some of the largest Celtic festivals, highland games, Renaissance faires, science fiction conventions in the country, including: South By Southwest, Stone Mountain Highland Games, DragonCon, Texas Renaissance Festival, and even a “Lord of the Rings” Oscar Party.

Marc Gunn combines his love of travel with his love a music. Every year, he hosts Celtic Invasion Vacations which are different from standard vacation tours. Gunn believes that it is the people around you who ultimately make a vacation great. He finds one location abroad and gathers like-minded vacationers to experience his travel motto, “Good food, good drink, good company”.
