Bring Yer Welliesby Gaelic Storm
Want to experience drinking a pint in an Irish pub, in the comfort of your living room? Then Gaelic Storm's Bring Yer Wellies ("wellies" is slang for rubber rain boots from Europe) is certainly recommended. Despite the rough edges being mostly smoothed over, the band still delivers an uptempo, carefree, feel-good time. Interestingly, although the group's sound is unmistakably Irish, there is only one member who actually hails from Ireland -- singer Patrick Murphy (the others hail from either England, Canada, or the U.S.). Regardless, Gaelic Storm sound like a well-honed version of the real thing, as evidenced by such tracks as "Never Drink 'Em Dry (Johnny Tarr's Funeral)" "The Devil Down Below," and "The Salt Lick." The band's hard work (they recorded this 14-track set in a month's time, and play over 125 shows per year) is certainly paying off, as heard throughout Bring Yer Wellies.

I went to IrishFest in Chicago last night and saw them live. They covered some songs from "Bring Yer Wellies". They sounded fantastic! This is Gaelic Storm's best cd yet!!!!
I love the music on all their CDs.
Gaelic Storm is AWESOME both in concert and on CD/DVD. They know how to get the crowd off their butts on and onto their feet. Original arrangements and compostions that leave you with tears of both laughter and Irish heart and soul. They are the BEST, and this CD is one of their best! Go GS!
First recording of Gaelic Storm I've bought. Great music and lyrics. I will definitely be buying more.
This is the third album I've gotten from Galic Storm and it's songs are some of my favorites. Definetly NOT DANNY BOY style of Irish music.
