Critically acclaimed as 'the most exhilarating and authentic show to come from Ireland in decades - not to be missed,' Celtic Crossroads is an explosion of youthful energy and dazzling musicianship- abounding with fusions of traditional Irish music, bluegrass, gypsy and jazz whilst pulsating with the rhythms of exciting Irish dance percussion. True high-kicking from some of Irelands best-respected Irish dancers also intensifies the pulsating rhythms of the show, Incorporating seven world-class musicians, playing over twenty instruments on stage transport the listener to that crossroads in Ireland. Tempestuous fiddle playing competes with explosive banjo, intricate mandolin, accordion, mandola and bouzouki and awe-inspiring guitar riffs, while silky flute playing remind the audience that these fiercely traditional musicians are also classically trained. Throw in thunderous bodhran rhythms, drumkit, and cajon and the audience finds themselves recklessly and ecstatically stomping along. As the thunder starts to take hold, rhythms beating, Irish dancers defying laws of speed and gravity, musicians swopping instruments before your eyes, building and rising from a slow groove to a climactic, epic and all encompassing wildness of unadulterated genius, audiences are unable to prevent themselves from jumping to their feet in thunderous ovation.
