Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with this festive concert of Celtic music and dance from the Emerald Isles performed by one of the leading traditional Irish ensembles. A real favorite of Irish audiences, (and ours) Danú always provides a high-energy experience while performing ancient Celtic music and new repertoire. Their virtuosity on authentic Irish instruments – flute, tin whistle, fiddle, button accordion, and bouzouki – is matched by the brilliance of gorgeous vocals in Irish and English. Bagpiper and former Riverdance member Ivan Goff joins the band for this American tour. Hailing from the heart of Ireland’s old country, County Waterford, this acclaimed ensemble tours throughout the U.K. and the United States to standing-room-only concerts, and has recorded seven acclaimed albums. Bring the whole family to this high-energy concert of authentic Celtic music and dance!
