As many tens of thousands of enthusiastic record buyers and festival-goers know, the quintet plays high-energy, foot-stomping, rock-tinged Celtic/World music. Not only does their instrumentation include fiddle, accordion and pipes, but also the bouzouki, mandolin and an array of drums including the Malian djembe, the Middle Eastern doumbek, the Brazilian surdo, and the Cuban caj”n, as well as the Irish bodhr”n. GAELIC STORM newest release ‘Cabbage’, is “a party on a platter” and marks the band’s highest charting album on the Billboard 200, and their second #1 on the Billboard World Music Chart! Their sophisticated storytelling was highlighted by Blurt whom enthused ‘Cabbage’ had “some of the wittiest writing the band has ever put to tape, like the opening track “Raised on Black and Tans” and the goofy, though still cleaver “Space Race.” Their cover of Simon & Garfunkel’s “Cecilia” is surprisingly original considering how many bands have had their way with that song.” GAELIC STROM will perform on the Sailing Southern Ground Cruise with Zac Brown Band this fall. They have previously toured alongside artists including Emmylou Harris, Lyle Lovett, and The Barenaked Ladies.
