I picked up my first Gaelic Storm CD from the library on the way home from work! I heard about Gaelic Storm from Stacy. She talks about them occasionally- like here, here, here and here (this was before I was a Stacy's Random Thoughts and Opinions reader I think!)
Since I'm a person "who enjoys" Stacy (by the way, I like the fact that the tagline of Stacy's blog is "A journal of random observations, reviews, and opinions I want to catalog for me and people who enjoy me." Because Planet Dan's tagline is "A site for people who love dan". Must we love you Dan? Can't we be friends first?) I thought I might enjoy Gaelic Storm. And I DO! In fact by the 13th track (Cab Ride to Kingston) I was improvising an Irish jig for Isaac's amusement. Well, he looked more annoyed than amused, but I was amused. Until I realized I was jumping up and down in clogs on the foot I broke last summer, and then it kind of hurt. But this is some really fun music. I also realized that I could have heard samples at gaelicstorm.com which is printed in huge letters on their CD. Guess I forgot how to do a google search there.
Anyway, thanks for recommending this band Stacy - they are coming to Long Island while I'm in China, but I see that they are playing in Annapolis next month too, I will have to tip off my sisters.
