The show presents a journey in eight minute snippets of a people leaving and arriving, their lives spent in a world searching for a place better than Ireland or half as good.
Celtic Nights is filled with laughter, sadness, melancholy, a sense of who we are and who our children will grow up to be, according to a press release for the show. “Its goal is to capture the essence of a great people from a small Island and their journey of hope and desire,” the release said.
Beautiful imagery and costumes enhance the experience.
Songs will be sung with the audience becoming a part of the story on stage.
The cast includes three male vocalists with three female singers, six of Ireland’s most talented international dancers and two musicians.
Celtic Nights is a two hour showcase which also informs on the influence of the old music on what became American sound – whether it be Bluegrass, Appalachian, Country and Western or the great songs and ballads from Shenandoah to the songs of The American Civil War .
