West of Galway have been entertaining Irish / Celtic music loving crowds since 2003 in Pubs and on the Festival circuit up and down the East Coast of the USA.
The band members are friends who met through music and shared stories of growing up with Saturday Night Kitchen Parties with their families. The Irish / Celtic Music and Family tradition is the same all over the world. West Of Galway is proud to carry on and share that very same tradition. Through the years our fan base has grown with the love and passion shared for Irish / Celtic Music throughout the USA.
Our goal since we started is to re-create the atmosphere inside a Pub in Ireland. Since 2003 we’ve been accomplishing that goal. We love to share that feeling every week with our fans.
2010 marked a tremendous achievement for the band. West Of Galway competed and WON an International Battle Of The Bands Competition made up of over 50 bands from around the world to be named, Best Irish Band 2010. From that competition, West Of Galway were sent to Ireland to play 3 shows as part of the prestigious, Celtic Fusion Festival in County Down.
2011 brought new excitement with the release of the bands 3rd CD titled: ar an do’l.
