Spotlight on Celtic Christmas: The Gleasons

The Gleasons

A Milwaukee band, The Gleasons provide a sound where Celtic and Pop music meet. With influences ranging from Johnny Cash to Flogging Molly they create a soulful, pop sound that is inspired by the passion of the Celts.  Their rich harmonies, coupled with fiddles, flutes, whistles, guitars and percussion, will have you stomping your feet and raising your pints.

I love Christmas because…

of what it truly means. The 3 Fs! Faith, family, and friends,

Favorite Christmas album is…

Anything by Bing Crosby

Best Christmas vacation was…

Building Snowmen in our yards and getting so cold the only relief was a fire in the fireplace and hot cider…. and of course a visit from Santa.

For me, “Celtic Christmas” is…

The sound of harps and bells, angels, snow, and Guinness.

My holiday charity is…

Food Pantries.

Guilty pleasures…

Christmas Cookies of course.

Cats. Kilts. Science Fiction. Irish drinking songs. Nowhere else but from the bizarre imagination of Marc Gunn would those four elements be so riotously integrated. He is the Chief Editor of the Celtic Music Magazine and host of the award-winning Irish & Celtic Music Podcast and the Celtic Christmas Podcast.
