The Young Irelanders, an energetic song and dance troupe from Dublin, will appear for Live On Stage’s grand finale concert of the current season. The talented group will perform for Williams County Community Concerts on Monday, April 25, at 7:30 p.m., in Bryan’s Arts and Education Auditorium on West High Street.
The Young Irelanders is comprised of eight sensational young persons who have traditional Irish music, song and dance running through their veins. Still in their 20’s and 30’s, this select group creates a unique and multi-faceted sound and dance vision.
In addition to vocals, the members play various Irish instruments such as accordion, melodeon, fiddle, whistles, bodhran, flute, and harp. The two dancers previously toured with “Riverdance” and “Lord of the Dance”. The group has won international musical accolades.
The sound the band plays is best described as eclectic. It includes traditional Irish music, Celtic, folk, jazz, country and popular. Sample selections the audience will hear includes “Caledonia”, “Danny Boy”, “Blackbird” and “Reel Madness”.
The Young Irelanders have performed throughout the world for heads of state and in venues across the U.S. and as far away as the Great Hall in China and the Kremlin State Palace in Moscow. Their website is www.theyoungirelanders.com.
