MANHATTAN -- The Celtic music group Gaelic Storm will perform at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, March 8, at Kansas State University's McCain Auditorium. The presentation is part of the McCain Performance Series.

Gaelic Storm's stage show features vocals, energetic dance tunes, traditional Celtic ballads and humor.

The group originated in 1996 doing pub performances. In 1997, Gaelic Storm appeared in the film "Titanic" as the steerage band. This catapulted the group's success and led to touring all around the world. Since its formation, Gaelic Storm has released six albums and has repeatedly topped Billboard world music charts.

The band's latest album is "What's the Rumpus?" The album features such instruments as African drums, Irish bagpipes, the Celtic fiddle, trombones and Cajun-style accordions.

Tickets for Gaelic Storm are on sale now. Prices start at $12.50 for K-State students and children 18 and under. General public tickets start at $25. Discounts for K-State faculty, seniors and military also are available. Tickets can be purchased at the McCain Auditorium box office from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays or by calling 785-532-6428.
