Over the years for millions of Irish have left the Emerald Isle, be it in search of work, to find their fortune, to be with loved ones, to escape trouble, to go on an adventure or to make a better life. But their heart and home always remains in that little land across the Irish Sea.
Through narration, poetry and song we are taken through history from the Celtic times, famous historical moments, hearing of the characters who helped shape the culture of the country, right up to the music we know and love over the last number of years.
We’ll hear stories of the Titanic build, the 1916 Rising, the forming of the Dubliners, and finding peace in Northern Ireland. Music featured in the show include classics such as Danny Boy, Galway Bay, The Last Rose of Summer, Ill Take You Home Again Kathleen, Raglan Road as well as toe tappers such as Black Velvet Band, The Wild Rover, Seven Drunken Nights and many more.
If you like Irish music, and all things Irish this show will pull on your heartstrings and make you smile in equal measure.
