Overview

Inspired by the music that drives their loyal fan base, "What’s the Rumpus?" is a wild party of an album, full of colorful characters and outrageous stories, flavored with Gaelic Storm’s signature acoustic sound that gets you dancing and never lets you go....From the upbeat opening title track to the final cut, “The Night I Punched Russell Crowe” (a true story involving singer Patrick Murphy), the music captures the contagious energy of the band’s carefree attitude and infectious live performances. With instruments ranging from African drums, Irish bagpipes and Celtic fiddle to trombones and Cajun-style accordions, WTR is a three-ring circus of acrobatic songs, swirling tunes and galloping rhythms. Steve Twigger produced the project with co-production by drummer Ryan Lacey and Pat Manske, and additional production by Patrick Murphy. Returning to The Zone studio in Austin TX where the band recorded their previous release Bring Yer Wellies, Gaelic Storm also enlisted the help of a few select Austin locals including Lloyd Maines and 1960’s psychedelic performer, Arthur Brown, to round out their eclectic Celtic sound.
