After a start playing gigs for friends in 1995, Gaelic Storm's popularity skyrocketed when it appeared in James Cameron's Titanic as the Celtic party band in the ship's steerage. The band takes distinct pride in the fact that its music and performances are a celebration of Irish culture as well as amedium of connection for many of the 36 million Irish-Americans who have at least some Irish blood in them. While Gaelic Storm plays Celtic music that hearkens back to the traditional music of Ireland, they are hardly traditionalists, adding modern sounds and drawing influences from American rock and pop as well as music styles from around the world. The band has made countless television and radio appearances, and there are official videos and heaps of fan-posted live YouTube clips (often with the crowd singing as loud as the band).
