About This Episode
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.”
