Since forming in 2004, Rising Gael has entertained audiences of all ages and musical interests in cities across the country. Rising Gael’s musical signature is the nexus of old and new. By transforming traditional tunes into modern arrangements and performing compelling original selections, Rising Gael creates a rich musical experience that lives on in the memory of their audiences.

Rising Gael has completed two albums: the self-titled debut, Rising Gael (Dec. 2004), and These City Walls (Jan. 2006). In 2007 the band was nominated for “Best World Artist” by The Madison Area Music Awards, and won “Best World Album” for These City Walls. Rising Gael is currently working on their third album which is scheduled to be released in the spring of 2008. In addition to studio work, Rising Gael has performed at many Celtic music festivals including: Texas’s Austin Celtic Music Festival; Illinois’s Celtic Fest Chicago; the Wisconsin Scottish Highland Games; and the largest Celtic music festival in North America, Wisconsin’s Milwaukee Irish Fest.
