“We honestly can’t think of a better way to celebrate St. Patty’s Day than having a nationally known band that specializes in Irish music come play for our fans”, said President Todd Frederickson. “We are always looking for ways to make the experience of going to an Iowa Wild game better for all fans. We had some great feedback from last year’s Cam concert. Our fans wanted more shows and we plan on announcing a country concert this season.”
Gaelic Storm is a Celtic band that has been touring for more than two decades and performed over 3,000 live shows. The bands musical output includes pieces from traditional Irish music, Scottish music, and original tunes in both the Celtic and Celtic Rock genres.
