Music

by Michael Londra

 

One of Ireland’s leading tenors brings you an evening of songs, stories, tunes and dance, from the heart of the Emerald Isle.

From a tiny spark, Michael Londra’s Celtic Fire now travels the world in many forms. With 100% live music, dance and song, the show generates an electric atmosphere that sweeps audiences away to Ireland’s culture, land, pubs, music and soul.

World champion dancers from the casts of Riverdance and Lord of the Dance take the stage with brilliant flashes of speed, youth and exuberance.

Many audiences want to get to join in… many actually do!

Irish dance has enjoyed a spectacular revival in recent years with shows like Riverdance; however, Celtic Fire doesn’t rehash the art form, but strips it to its bare essentials. Irish music and dance has learned to mix with other cultures to create new and innovative dances but at its core, this is what Ireland is all about. It is the real thing!

The music of Celtic Fire show is traditional at its core, with all of Ireland’s national instruments. The fiddle driving frenetic reels, our great drum, the bodhran, beating out the driving rhythms of the band, the plaintive uilleann pipes calling back to days of yore with beautiful and haunting slow airs

The heart of this show belongs to celebrated tenor Michael Londra who has won fans in every corner of the globe, as the lead voice of Riverdance on Broadway, as a concert singer who has performed in 40 countries and as the star of his Emmy® nominated PBS special.

His humor and easy connection with the audiences are what make the evening special, not to mention his stunning voice, with a performance of Danny Boy that will leave you speechless.
