Brace yourselves in October as Celtic band Gaelic Storm performs a night of lively jigs and reels to heartfelt ballads in Kalispell.

Tickets are on sale to see the Oct. 24 performance at the Wachholz College Center at Flathead Valley Community College. The concert starts at 7:30 p.m. 

Known for an eclectic blend of traditional Irish music with modern influences, Gaelic Storm performs electrifying shows that deliver a fusion of Celtic melodies, rock rhythms and vocals. The band has performed about 2,000 shows over two decades to diverse audiences. Country-music folks adore the storytelling, bluegrass-heads love the instrumentals, Celtic fans love their devotion to tradition and the rockers relish the passion they play their instruments with, according to the band's bio, describing themselves as “the true working man’s band.” 

On the band’s latest release, “Go Climb a Tree,” co-founders, Steve Twigger and Patrick Murphy, and longtime friend and co-writer Steve Wehmever, have produced an album with a bit of everything — party drinking songs  (“The Beer Song”), patriotic anthems (“Green, White and Orange”), beautiful folk songs (“Monday Morning Girl”), spritely instrumentals (“The Night of Tomfoolery”), poppy songs (“Shine On”) and even a raucous pirate song (“Shanghai Kelly”). 

Ticket prices range from $44 to $57.20, which includes service fees, and may be purchased online at wccmt.org or by calling 756-1400.
