With catalog sales of more than 1 million, Gaelic Storm boasts four consecutive album debuts at #1 on the Billboard World Albums Chart. The group’s ability to deftly incorporate a rock sensibility into their sound affords them rare crossover appeal; sharing the same bill with acts ranging from Zac Brown Band and the Goo Goo Dolls to Emmylou Harris and Lyle Lovett. With their signature acoustic production, Gaelic Storm blends indie-folk and world grooves with Celtic tradition to bring you twelve tales of plight and plunder, whiskey-drenched pirates, flying cannon balls and the ladies of ill repute.
