From the St. Johns County CulturalÂ EventsÂ Division
Celtic rock group Gaelic Storm returns to perform Jan. 21, 2015Â at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall, 1050 A1A North, in Ponte Vedra Beach.Â Gaelic Storm performed previously to a packed house at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall inÂ January 2014.
Over the course of 10 albums and nearly 3,000 live shows, Gaelic Storm, the chart-topping, multi-national Celtic band, is dishing up a hearty serving of Full Irish â€“ â€˜The Best of Gaelic Storm.” The greatest-hits album spans the bulk of the bandâ€™s career, mixing crowd favorites and concert staples with three previously unreleased recordings, including â€œWhiskey in the Jarâ€ and â€œIrish Party in Third Classâ€ from Titanic. The album features sea shanties and drinking songs, traditional tunes and Gaelic Storm originals, instrumental workouts and vocal showcases.
Regularly playing more than 120 shows a year, Gaelic Storm has built a loyal following as diverse as the bandâ€™s own music. Fans of traditional Irish music have championed the group for years, as have fans of harder-edged Celtic rock. On tour, Gaelic Storm is just as likely to play a large rock club as a plush theater.
The band makes regular appearances on cruises, too, joining artists like the Barenaked Ladies and Michael Franti. Gaelic Storm has straddled the line between tradition and innovation for nearly two decades, infusing traditional Celtic music with modern influences, and updating the genre for a new generation of fans raised on rock, country and folk. Along the way, the group has topped the Billboard World Chart four times and earned a reputation as a hard-touring, genre-bending band.
