The Ponte Vedra Concert Hall proudly announces the return of genre-bending Irish band Gaelic Storm in concert on Tuesday, February 5, 2019. 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.
This 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. 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 its 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.”
With their latest release, “Go Climb a Tree”, their music has never sounded more representative of themselves as musicians and as live performers. 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”).
Doors 7:00pm / Show 8:00pm
