"If you enjoy The Corries, Robert Burns, Ewan MacColl, Christy Moore, The Clancy Brothers's Celtic folk music, you'll love this..."
Do you want some free Celtic songs and folk music downloads? My name is Marc Gunn. I'm an multi-award-winning, rhythm and folk musician who combines Celtic music with sci fi and fantasy themes. Just imagine a jam session with The Clancy Brothers, The Corries, and Weird Al Yankovic, and you'll have the gist. It's Celtic music, the traditional and the twisted.

Free MP3s changed my life in 2000. That's when I started using them to promote my music. My former band, Brobdingnagian Bards, was on MP3.com. We gave away over a million MP3s before they were shut down by the major record labels.
I learned that people want to sample music before they buy it. So I make my music easily available. You can listen to most of my music for free here. I also give away an entire album of songs from my many albums. I even give you permission to use my music via a Creative Commons license.
Do I expect you to buy it? Nope. But I do hope you take the time to listen and sample it to see if it's right for you.
If you love Irish or Scottish songs, if you love Renaissance festivals, if you love sci fi conventions or all things geeky, then you might enjoy my music. You'll hear music ranging from traditional Irish and Scottish folk songs to Celtic-style songs about Firefly, Star Wars, Star Trek, Lord of the Rings, Red Dwarf, Doctor Who and cats.
I want to invite you to subscribe to my mailing list (above). I send out a fun newsletter every couple o'weeks with info about my music and life. I also give away a full album of Celtic and Geek songs.
I am a firm believer that free music downloads help to sell CDs. The record industry disagrees. You can help me prove it true. I have over a dozen free Celtic and folk mp3s that I want you to download right now... for FREE!
Download them. Listen. Enjoy. Smile. Laugh.
Then, if you like some of the music, buy a CD and help stick it to the industry.
In the meantime... Vote for Marc Gunn in the Celtic Top 100
