Direct from a highly successful tour of France and Germany,IRISH CELTIC features the finest performers from the top Irish dance companies, who show their incredible talent and their infectious love for dance in a thrilling evening of high energy dance and explosive rhythms.

Set in a traditional pub in southern Ireland, IRISH CELTIC brings the warmth and conviviality for which Ireland is famed, onto the theatre stage. The audience is welcomed by genial landlord and owner Paddy to share an unforgettable night of music, storytelling and dance.

The five-piece on-stage band get the evening going with infectious rhythms and passionate music, including romantic theme tunes from Braveheart and Last of the Mohicans, while the 12 exceptional dancers recreate scenes from throughout Celtic history; from the days of the Druids, the great migrations, to the voyage of the Titanic, through spectacular choreography, scorching tap dancing and nail-biting precision.

At the heart of IRISH CELTIC is the love of dance which has permeated Irish culture through the centuries, and through dance the story of Ireland’s history is vividly illustrated – and where better to appreciate it than in an Irish pub with traditional musicians, swirling skirts and flagon-loads of friendliness.

IRISH CELTIC has been created by the talented trio of Artistic Director Toby Gough, Jim Murrihy as Choreographer, and Musical Director Anthony Davis. Toby Gough is the international award-winning director of the Cuban dance show Lady Salsa which was resident on London’s West End for two years. In 2012 his show Brazil Brazil! was performed on Broadway. He has toured the US with The Merchants of Bollywood and has travelled around the world with the highly successful The Bar at Buena Vista featuring stars of The Buena Vista Social Club.

Jim Murrihy is a former original cast member of Lord of the Dance and Feet of Flames and has performed in Las Vegas and all over the world. As an expert in Irish Dance, Jim’s extensive network of performers enables him to cast the top dancers from Ireland’s leading commercial dance shows as well as draw on Ireland’s undiscovered traditional dance community to form a diverse, professional and highly talented company. He collaborated with the talented Denise Flynn, former star of Lord of the Dance, for IRISH CELTIC.

So come on down to the IRISH CELTIC Pub, meet the people of Ireland, and discover the songs, legends, traditions and dances of a culture whose heritage is as rich as it is old.
