This show brings to the stage traditional Irish and Celtic music in an evening filled with fast and graceful dance steps, authentic live music and enchanting songs, enhanced with traditional Irish and Celtic instruments.
This production is comprised of a young and talented group of dancers and musicians dedicated to re-creating the ambiance, moods and emotions associated with this Irish and Celtic music. Cast members include the winner of the 2009 Roots/Traditional Recording of the Year, Troy MacGillivray, and Canadian Grand Master Fiddle Champion of 2009/2010, Julie Fitzgerald. Also appearing as story tellers, are two very accomplished actors from the Toronto Irish Players, Jonathan Lynn and Kevin Kennedy.
The troupe's energy, enthusiasm and precision have drawn praise from audiences across North America and in Europe. One reviewer commented on how the energy of the performers seemed to be driven by the audience participation, which "grew as the evening progressed." The most exciting thing about the show is the spontaneity the performers bring to the stage.
The Magic of Ireland truly reflects the Celtic spirit in an evening filled with traditional Irish dance, music and song enhanced by costumes, lighting and sound and brought to life by a group of dedicated talented dancers, singers and musicians.
