THE MUSIC OF GAELIC STORM


image


While Celtic music is often associated with the mournful sounds of tragic loss, Gaelic Storm has added a completely new dimension with energetic music that encourages people to get off their pub stools and dance. This element of their music caught the attention of the directors of the blockbuster Hollywood movie Titanic, leading to their appearance as the steerage band in the film. Gaelic Storm has been going strong ever since.
On St. Patrick's Day in 1996, Patrick Murphy officially formed a band with Steve Wehmeyer and Steve Twigger. Murphy became the lead singer for the group and also played the harmonica, accordion, and the spoons. Wehmeyer, a New Yorker in love with Irish music, played the bodhran, the digeridoo, and provided vocals. Wehmeyer earned a doctoral degree in folklore and mythology from the University of California at Los Angeles, where he has also taught and lectured. He has appeared on the Learning Channel's Unnatural History and has published materials in New York Folklore, Western Folklore, and African Arts. Twigger, a self-taught guitar player from Coventry, England, played the mandolin, the bouzouki, and provided vocals. Twigger completed an art degree and worked as an art director, graphic designer, and illustrator in England for three years before moving to Los Angeles, where he worked designing movie posters for Hollywood studios.






BRING YOUR WELLIES BY GAELIC STORM

BRING YOUR WELLIES BY GAELIC STORM graphic Prepare to raise your glass, Gaelic Storm's in the house and this pub band knows how to rouse a crowd. Over the years, their hard drinking, anecdote-laden sound has subtly transformed from straight up Irish jigs and reels to their own unique blend of high-energy dance/folk music with a fair share of humor, storytelling and fiddle-playing. On BRING YOUR WELLIES (a British term for rainboots), the band offers another lively set of tunes that certainly is diverse. The opener "Skalliwag" is an energetic romp that is pure Gaelic Storm. "Me and the Moon" is a toe-tapping crowd-pleaser with a catchy chorus, "Kiss Me I'm Irish" turns the popular saying into a charming little ditty and "Bare in the Basin" proves that the group can still rock an instrumental tune. Another fine and fun album from this popular party band.
