Multi-national Celtic juggernaut, Gaelic Storm, returns to Taft Theatre for a performance on February 28.
With over 3,000 shows in the past 20 years under their belt, Gaelic Storm is a force to be reckoned with. The band attributes their continued success to their fanatic audience, and it’s a well-diversified crowd for sure. The country-music folks adore the storytelling, the bluegrass-heads love the instrumentals, Celtic fans love their devotion to tradition, and the rockers simply relish the passion they play their instruments with. Each band member, in their own way, expresses a deep gratitude for their fans, but it’s best summed up in the words of Patrick Murphy: “The fans are the ones that have given us this life. We’re here for them.”
Gaelic Storm takes a true blue-collar, hard-nose approach to touring, consistently traveling the US and internationally over 200 days a year, forging a unique path in the Celtic music world. “You have to see us live. We are the true working-man’s band,” says Ryan Lacey, who joined the lineup in 2003. “We still, and most likely always will, tour most of the year, and that’s how we constantly hone our craft.”
Gaelic Storm has 7 #1 Billboard World Music Chart Albums along with 250 million streams worldwide. They were also featured in the blockbuster smash Titanic, performing their song Irish Party in Third Class.
