The show was streamed live in to the fans homes all over the world and was part of the Legacy Tour. Recorded live at Arrow Hall in the International Centre in Toronto, Storm blends music, mythology, and dance, relying less on golden-throated crooning though there is some of that and more on an expert ensemble that includes the acting, singing, and dancing talents of Ryan Kelly, Keith Harkin, Deirdre Shannon, and Caroline Torti, along with a host of others. Both the ensemble and solo performances in this thrilling evening of entertainment highlight the diversity of Irish music and song. Hundreds of live trees and shrubs some over 30 foot tall , gypsy caravans, settler's huts, and a river fill this eye-catching and dramatic stage. .

Powerful anthems and heartwarming ballads all serve to showcase the musical talent of each soloist. For Sharon, no longer with Celtic Collections or Celtic Woman, it was time for a new challenge and a new chapter in her life. This is truly experienced in this live recording.

Thousands of people from all over the world logged in to watch the live show. Storm is a turbulent, raucous stand off between the darkness of gypsies, and the resolution of the settlers both fighting for the same piece of land.
