Not Very Celtic, but... Marc Gunn in Indianapolis, Cincinnati and Muncie
I am currently on the Blue Sun Holiday Spectacular Tour. My friend Mikey Mason and I are singing Firefly songs mashed up with geeky Christmas music. There are just three dates left on the tour.
Join me tonight in Indianapolis! Get details.
Thanks for fixing my screw up...
Last week, I announced my screw up. You can click to find details here.
I want to thank everyone who donated a few bucks and more to help me fix my error. I'm almost all the way caught up. I'm about $50 in the hole instead of $500. So wow! You are amazing!
I deeply appreciate your kindness. May it come back to you tenfold!

Need a Christmas Ornament?
Okay. No one NEEDS an ornament. But what is cooler than a Celtic Heartstring Christmas Cross ornament?! Each one is handmade from the broken strings of my heart... I mean autoharp! Give 'em a look, please!
