With catalog sales of more than 1 million, the group has now had three albums debut at #1 on the Billboard World Albums Chart–2008’s What’s the Rumpus?, 2010’s Cabbage, which remained parked in the top slot for three consecutive weeks, and 2012’s Chicken Boxer. Chicken Boxer is the fifth album to be released on the band’s own label, Lost Again Records, and showcases the incomparable songwriting and accomplished musicianship of a band that has made their mark bringing fans to their feet two hundred days per year.

The group’s ability to deftly incorporate a rock sensibility into their sound affords them rare crossover appeal. In recent years, they’ve performed on the same bill with acts ranging from the Zac Brown Band and the Goo Goo Dolls to Emmylou Harris and Lyle Lovett, at events as varied as the Telluride Bluegrass Festival and Milwaukee’s Summerfest.

With their signature acoustic production, Gaelic Storm blends indie-folk and world grooves with Celtic tradition to serve up a ringside seat for fifteen rounds of pugilistic poultry pounding sound. In other words, Chicken Boxer will knock you out!

They will play at the Wilma on November 3. They are a high energy band, so bring your dancing shoes and make sure you have plenty of fodder on board before you go. For information and tickets, go to www.celticfestivalmissoula.com.
