"Storm" is a compelling new show from Celtic Thunder that tells the story of a land struggle and cultural differences. It is a turbulent, raucous stand off between the darkness of gypsies, and the resolution of the settlers both fighting for the same piece of land. The majority of the music featured in "Storm" is original and was composed for the show by legendary Irish Composer Phil Coulter. It also features wonderful and exciting new arrangements on Celtic classics such as "Lagan Love" and "Mo Ghile Mear."
