Theatre Royal Waterford, 30th September

“Fantastic feel-good, happy, lively music” Sharon Shannon

On September 30th 2017 @ 8pm one of the oldest céilí bands in the world, the Kilfenora Céilí Band from Co. Clare will be joined by World champion and Riverdance Michael Gardiner , his brother world champion Matthew Gardiner, Riverdance Laura Minogue and Waterfords own Deirdra Kiely , to perform an exciting and energetic show to wow Irish and International audiences this September.

This expertly choreographed show of high-spirited traditional music comprises of energetic and athletic dancing, choreographed by Michael Donnellan,, melodious song with Edel Vaughan and witty story-telling from guest artists that is not only engaging and uplifting but utterly enjoyable.

Renowned as one of the world’s most renowned traditional bands, the Kilfenora Céilí Band are constantly finding new ways to bring their age old traditions to new audiences with tours to Glastonbury (headline concerts on their acoustic stage) and concerts in New York’s prestigious Lincoln Centre as well as tours around Ireland and Europe.

Their concert performances and recent recordings, including Now is The Hour (2015) point to a broadening of the perceived boundaries of their genre. Collaborations with a diverse range of song and dance artists, experimentation with repertoire outside of the dance domain and complex harmonic arrangements speak to an ensemble who are pioneering new and exciting performance contexts for the céilí band genre.

While acknowledging and incorporating the past, the Kilfenora thrives on creativity and innovation.
