The performance in this episode marks Gaelic Storm's 11th return to Big Top. Regularly playing more than 120 shows a year, Gaelic Storm has built one of the most diverse fan bases in modern music from bluegrass fans and country cowboys to Deadheads, rock & rollers and Celtic fanatics.
After nearly two decades and more than 3,000 live shows the chart-topping, multi-national Celtic band is looking sharper than ever. Their TWELFTH studio album "Matching Sweaters" delivers the foot-stomping, eclectic mix of tunes that has established the band as one of world music’s premier live acts. Says the Pittsburgh Tribune, “Gaelic Storm is rock-flavored… music as Irish as Guinness and Harp.”
