Celtic Crossroads return to The Barns from the shores of Galway to kick off two evenings of energetic music and dance.
Celtic Crossroads’ dancers and musicians (who collectively play more than 20 instruments) are: Diarmaid Hurley, Isaac Alderson, Kate Moloney, Michael McClintock, James Riley, Lisa Canny, Marcus Donnelly, Shaunessy Sinnett, and Charlene Morrison.
The ensemble’s name is inspired by the area between towns and villages where people in Ireland used to meet to socialize and play music. “The crossroads, that was where people would get together and dance, sing songs, and tell stories into the late hours of the night.”—Kevin Crosby, Celtic Crossroads co-founder
In September 2012 Celtic Crossroads released a new CD/DVD called Celtic Crossroads: Live From Canada that features classic Irish songs such as “Danny Boy” as well as covers of songs by Emerald Isle icons like U2.
“A truly fantastic show not to be missed.”—The Guardian London
Celtic Crossroads perform at The Barns tonight and tomorrow Wednesday, February 27, 2013 at 8 pm and Thursday, February 28, 2013 at 8 pm.
