Combine Cats and Celts and you have Irish Drinking Songs for Cat Lovers, a CD for the wonderfully demented kitty cat fantastic. Listen to music you've heard on St. Patrick's Day or by The Dubliners, The Clancy Brothers, The Wolfe Tones, and The Irish Rovers. Then laugh as all your favorite Irish Drinking Songs are rewritten with lyrics about cats. Your love of Celtic music will never be the same!


"Live at the Cactus Cafe: Celtic Music and Cat Songs" is a live CD recorded for the CD release of The Dubliners' Tabby Cats second CD of cat parodies, "Whiskers in the Jar". It features Marc Gunn performing some of his favorite cat songs with Cedric the Fiddler and Michelle Hedden.

But that's not all. You will also hear Marc embrace his Celtic roots with a nice mix of Celtic and folk songs. Plus, Cedric of the Bedlam Bards takes the lead on a couple songs turning it into an all out live musical experience unlike anything you've heard before.


released April 30, 2009

He breathes new life into the autoharp, which continues to surprise musical veterans and fans alike for its unique sound and spirited energy. It’s like a satirical jam session between The Clancy Brothers and Weird Al Yankovic.
