Connecticut based Full Gael performs traditional Irish music, including a variety of jigs, reels, and songs, from Irish, Scottish and American traditions as well as the Canadian Maritime provinces. The band includes Will O'Hare (flute, whistles, vocals), Gary Palmer (guitar and vocals), and Ben Gagliardi (concertina, whistles, vocals). Our performances are tailored to fit your needs, whether it is a Celtic festival, stage concert, house concert or private party. We also offer a unique presentation blending Celtic Halloween music and lore. We have performed throughout Southern New England and at many venues and festivals in New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island, including the South Street Seaport in NYC, Old Sturbridge Village, Jane Goodall Institute's Roots and Shoots Festival, Wind on the Bay Festival, and the Portsmouth (RI) Art Festival.
