Up-Close and Personal
From the euphoric energy and creative dance improvisation of world champions, Cathal Keaney and Colm Conneely to the haunting pipe-playing of Lord of the Dance Dangerous Games’ composer and musical director Gerard Fahy.
And from a fun and funky dance-off between Tik-Tok sensation Cairde members Dara kelly and Ronan O’ Connell, performed within the audience, to the adrenalin-pumping trad rock mastery of Yvonne Fahy on the bodhrán – Trad on the Prom is two hours of pure excitement. Framed by the breath-taking beauty and passionate power of legendary fiddler and vocalist Máirín Fahy, this iconic show is an Irish music, song and dance experience like no other, and a holiday highlight we promise you’ll never forget.
Whether it’s the fiddle-bow-flying ecstasy of Máirín Fahy, the primal power of the bodhrán at the hand of Yvonne Fahy or the blaze of world champion Irish dancers filling the stage with lightning-speed steps, Trad on the Prom is Irish cultural music and dance talent at its most vibrant.
In a few moments, our performers can take you from ancient Celtic mysticism to the smoky blue grass sounds of Irish music that found its home in America. Hear the soulful words of WB Yeats come alive in song, then shift gear for some ‘Uptown Funk’ Irish-style and see why our dancers brought Broadway to its feet.
With dancers performing on dance podiums right in front of you, and the warmth and story-telling style of show Producer and Host Chris Kelly, this is performance that draws you into the action and holds you there.
Every Trad on the Prom artist was born to play, dance and sing. It’s what we love, what we do and who we are. And you’ll see and feel this come alive on stage.
Experience the wonderful interplay of energies between our performers as they change things up, challenge each other and throw in the odd surprise!
