Greetings bards! Welcome to the home of the Brobdingnagian Bards. My name is Marc Gunn. I play autoharp and sing for our group. Andrew McKee is my fellow bard. He plays the recorder and mandolin.
We play Celtic music unlike anything you've heard before. It's like a romantic musical comedy. Since 1999, we've played hundreds of performances and get over 1000 people listening to our music daily. We are also one of the most prolific bands online.
We play mostly Celtic songs, on very unique instruments: the autoharp, recorder and mandolin, and we play every chance we get.You'll see us at Renaissance Faires, on street corners, at Universities, in coffee houses, at weddings, Celtic festivals, and in front of concert halls. You name it, we'll be there. Sheesh! You'll even find us in an office fixing your computer.
Despite our unique sound, we've been compared to such remarkable Celtic groups as The Dubliners, The Clancy Brothers, Incredible Strings Band, Phil Coulter, Martin Carthy, Dervish, The Fureys, Ewan MacColl, and the Wolf Tones. But our frequent performances at Renaissance festivals earned us the title "a Renaissance version of They Might Be Giants". But in our opinion, our musical sound is far different all the above.
When you listen to our music, you will hear the traditional ballads of Ireland and Scotland, but you will also hear some incredible Celtic and Renaissance-inspired instrumentals like in our mp3.com hit song "Tolkien (The Hobbit & Lord of the Rings)". This song peaked at #14 on all MP3.com and is still our most popular song. But just when you think you have our music pegged, we throw a playful comedy your way, and your back to square one. Our music is so successful that we've recorded four studio albums, plus, compilations, EPs, live albums and singles to meet the enormous demand for our music.
We've made it our duty to offer dozens of Free MP3s to you, so you can enjoy Celtic music 24/7. You can help us to continue to offer free music. All you have to do is buy a CD, or donate a few bucks to our cause.
Last, if you have
a few moments, please drop us a line. We'd love to hear from you. Slainte!
