New "Alan Kelly Gang" album to be released + US Tour starts 28th February

The Alan Kelly Gang have announced that they are back in the studio recording a follow up to their very impressive 2012 release Small Towns and Famous Nights.  We reviewed it at the time and it was very impressive indeed. Their website confirms that it's official, recording has begun.  "The Gang (Alan, Steph, Alasdair and Tony) joined by percussionists Jim Higgins and Martin O’Neill have hit the studio with producer, Manus Lunny to record their new album due for release in early 2014. In traditional Gang style and format, the album will include a tasteful mix of traditional Irish tunes as well as original compositions and a selection of material from other neighbouring Celtic Countries… and with a bit more of a Scottish presence on board, you can expect to hear some musical influences from the North Western side of the Irish Sea! Though predominantly consisting of instrumental ‘tune’ tracks, the album will also include a selection of songs with lead vocals by band member, Steph Geremia and perhaps even some surprise guest vocalists too!"


They are also undertaking a US Tour that kicks off on 28th February at Wisconsin Union Theatre and continues through until 16th March in Sanders Theatre in Cambridge, MA.  Their tour dates are
