About the Performance

Gaelic Storm and The High Kings are back on tour together as both groups make their Ravinia debuts. Gaelic Storm was formed in California and has toured and recorded for over 20 years, attributing their great success to a notably dedicated fan base. They combine traditional folk music from Ireland and Scotland with Celtic rock. Tunes like "Blarney Pilgrim," "John Ryan's Polka," "Kesh Jig," and "Drowsy Maggie" charmed audiences around the world as the group appeared as the steerage band in the blockbuster film Titanic.

The High Kings, founded in Dublin in 2007, is an Irish folk group with five studio albums and four live recordings to their name. They have performed extensively in their native Ireland and across Europe and the USA. Following a performance in front of President Barack Obama, they were invited to feature at the White House's 2012 St. Patrick's Day celebration.
