Close the Door, Will Ya: Gaelic Storm and "Bare in the Basin"



Bare in the Basin, our song for today, is a medley of tunes by Gaelic Storm. Gaelic Storm is an American Irish band formed in 1997 in Santa Monica, California. They play traditional Irish and Scottish music, as well as original music in the Celtic and Celtic rock genres. Gaelic Storm got a huge break in 1997 when they were cast as the steerage band in the blockbuster movie Titanic. They have burnished their resume by touring aggressively and adding new instrumentation to their ensemble, such as Uileann, Highland and Deger (electronic) bagpipes. Bare in the Basin can be found on their 2006 album Bring Yer Wellies.
