Sci Fi Conventions in Alabama and the South

Now that I live in Birmingham, Alabama, I’m doing some research on Sci Fi conventions near me. I’d love to perform at more cons.

Cats.  Sci Fi.  Renaissance Festivals.  Irish drinking songs.  Nowhere else but from the bizarre imagination of Marc Gunn would those four elements be so neatly integrated.  Nicknamed “The Celtfather”, Marc Gunn is a champion of the Celtic MP3.  He has given away over 10,000,000 MP3s since he began his Celtic music career in 1999.  He allows fans to download and share his most-popular songs straight from his website for FREE! Find out more at www.marcgunn.com.

Book Marc Gunn, The Celtfather at Your Science Fiction convention.
