About Gaelic Storm
Since forming in 1997, acclaimed Celtic group Gaelic Storm have risen from local pub sessions in their hometown of Santa Monica, California to an internationally known touring and recording act. Led by founding members Patrick Murphy and Steve Twigger, the band’s first major exposure arrived before they had even recorded their first album. Appearing as the “steerage band” entertaining passengers in James Cameron’s massive 1997 blockbuster, Titanic, Gaelic Storm were widely embraced by the time they released their self-titled debut a year later. This laid the groundwork for a career that would eventually find them topping the Billboard World Chart seven times, making appearances at mainstream music festivals, and regularly headlining the largest Irish festivals across the country, all the while gaining a reputation as a genre-bending Irish rock band, whose songs mix Celtic traditions with something uniquely creative. The group’s lineup varied over the course of its first decade, but eventually settled on piper Peter Purvis, percussionist Ryan Lacey, and fiddler Katie Grennen complementing Murphy and Twigger’s multi-instrumentalism and shared vocal duties.  With their energetic mix of Irish and Scottish traditional fare, drinking songs, and playful original material, they proved to be a popular touring act with a dedicated, loyal fan base of nearly one million social media followers and 250 million streams across all streaming platforms.
