Gaelic Mishap is Maryland’s premier Celtic Rock Band!

Formed in 2010, this group blends unmatched vocals and iconic fiddling into Celtic rock, shanties, and traditional Irish tunes. Whether young or old, at a festival or in the pub, Gaelic Mishap will “wow” you with their original music while throwing surprises, or “mishaps”, into the hits and covers you know and love.

Gaelic Mishap has performed at a variety of venues across several states, including: the Annapolis Irish Festival, The Hamilton Theater, the Philadelphia Fleadh, the Martinsburg Irish Festival, Washington DC’s Shamrockfest, and many more.  They’ve played alongside or opened for some of the largest national/international acts in the Celtic Scene, including Carbon Leaf, Flogging Molly, Dropkick Murphys and Gaelic Storm.
