Celebrating over ten adventurous years of touring worldwide Celtic Legends will be touring Cairns, Toowoomba, Maryborough, Gladstone and Gold Coast from Saturday 4 October – Tuesday 14 October 2014. Celtic Legends brings you 100% live traditional Irish dance, music and song creating an electric atmosphere which has swept countless international audiences away to the heart of Ireland.
Born in the wild and beautiful hills of Connemara in Ireland back in 2002, Celtic Legends recreates the art form in its own way by stripping it down to the bare essentials, presenting a traditional dance show which has a more vital feel. With cast members that are more creative and dynamic, audiences are more engaged and everyone leaves the show feeling they have been more involved and have had more of an insight into what Ireland really is.
The music is traditional at its core with all of Ireland’s national instruments, the fiddle driving frenetic reels, the great Irish drum known as the Bodhran beating out the driving rhythms of the band, the plaintive uileann pipes calling back to days of yore with beautiful and haunting slow airs.
The musicians are the world’s best with virtuoso quality and a love for their art unmatched.
The show features 6 amazing talented Irish musicians on stage along with 18 Irish Dancers, many of which have qualified in the top 10 best dancers in the world during the World Championship of Irish Dancing in London last April.
The Celtic Legends dancers take the stage with brilliant flashes of speed. All of them are experienced despite their youth, they have been performing from an early age winning many world championships and touring with shows like Riverdance and Lord of the Dance. The intricate group numbers are complimented by solo spots which are the hit of the night.
