The Ponte Vedra Concert Hall proudly announces the return of genre-bending Irish band Gaelic Storm. It’s hard to imagine a band just coming into their own after 20 years of success, but that’s exactly what makes a true anomaly. his multi-national, Celtic juggernaut grows stronger with each live performance, and as you can imagine, after two decades and over 2000 shows, Gaelic Storm is a true force to be reckoned with. With their latest release, “Go Climb a Tree”, their music has never sounded more representative of themselves as musicians and as live performers.
On “Go Climb a Tree”, co-founders of Gaelic Storm, Steve Twigger and Patrick Murphy, along with longtime friend and co-writer Steve Wehmever, are again at the helm of song-writing duties. The album has everything; party drinking songs (“The Beer Song”), patriotic anthems (“Green, White and Orange”), beautiful folk songs (“Monday Morning Girl”), spritely instrumentals (“The Night of Tomfoolery”), perfectly poppy songs (“Shine On”), and even a raucous pirate song (“Shanghai Kelly”). When speaking of the overall concept of the album, Patrick Murphy gives some insight: “With all the craziness and division in the world, we wanted to make an album about ‘contemplative escapism.’ “Go Climb a Tree” certainly isn’t about dropping out of the conversation. It’s just about taking a short hiatus to recharge the batteries before you take on the world again”.
Doors 7:00pm / Show 8:00pm
