"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 themes of love, unrequited and forbidden, the sweet innocence of youth and the triumph of life experience are also found throughout "Storm."

The majority of the music featured in "Storm" is original and was composed for the show by legendary Irish Composer Phil Coulter. His songs range from the hopeful and romantic such as "New Day Dawning," and the beautiful duet "Tender is The Night," to the dark and menacing "Storm Overture" to the whimsical and fun number "Look At Me."
"Storm" also features wonderful and exciting new arrangements on Celtic classics such as "Lagan Love" and "Mo Ghile Mear" (Hail The Hero), the latter is used in a brilliantly choreographed battle cry between settlers and gypsies. The end result is that Sharon Browne and Phil Coulter's new production is challenging, original and engaging and is bound to enthrall audiences.
