Gaelic Storm is back with the #1 Billboard World Album The Boathouse, a seafaring album of traditional songs of the ocean, recorded in one whiskey fueled week in a converted boathouse on The Chesapeake Bay. The Boathouse is the first release from Gaelic Storm’s “Small Batch Sessions,” a new series that will offer truly exclusive releases only available for purchase on the band’s website and at their live shows.
With catalog sales of more than 1 million, the group has now had four consecutive 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, 2012’s Chicken Boxer, and 2013’s The Boathouse.
The Boathouse is the sixth 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 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 bring you twelve tales of plight and plunder, whiskey-drenched pirates, flying cannon balls and the ladies of ill repute. Ready your sea legs; you'll need them for The Boathouse!
