Rising Gael

Rising Gael is a Irish band that is setting the standard for modern Celtic music. The driving rhythms played on guitar and drum race with the fast fingers and electrifying bowing of the fiddle. This mix is paired with pure, powerful vocals, resulting in a rich and innovative sound.

Since forming in 2004, Rising Gael has entertained audiences in cities across the country and around the world. Rising Gael has performed at many Celtic music festivals including: Texas’s Austin Celtic Music Festival; Illinois’s Celtic Fest Chicago; Iowa’s Irish Fest; the Wisconsin Scottish Highland Games; and the largest Celtic music festival in North America, Wisconsin’s Milwaukee Irish Fest. Rising Gael has also toured in New York, Italy, Poland, Estonia, and Latvia.

The band has completed five albums: the self-titled debut, Rising Gael (Dec. 2004); These City Walls (Jan. 2006); One More Day (Nov. 2008); IV (June 2011); and Roots (May 2019).

Rising Gael is a vibrant and energetic band that you will not want to miss!
