If you love adventure, then you will find your heart pumping with an interview I did with Vince Conaway. He plays hammered dulcimer, is an incredible busker, and every year, he goes to exotic locations in abroad to play music in the streets and to become a part of the culture of the region. Having had years of Celtic Invasion Vacations where we sort of do the same, his story is dear to my heart.

From Florence to Machu Pichu, Austria to Croatia, plus the Renaissance festivals he does the rest of the year, Vince has been all over. He even can explain what the dulcimer is in those various languages, which is just too cool.

Vince will share his favorite memories and best travel tips. You can find him and his travel blog and photos at and he's also on Patreon.


I'll be at Sherwood Forest Faire this weekend. Once again, I have four shows daily. I'm also launching the fundraiser for my next CD Irish Adventures on Higgins' Moon. You can get a copy of that album when you join the Gunn Runners Club on Patreon.
