A Gaelic Gathering: Irish Music & Dance
A Gaelic Gathering - Irish Music and Dance, was first commissioned by the Music Center for World City, the acclaimed performance series for children and families. The company of internationally award-winning dancers and musicians gave a rousing performance in March 2007 at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. The program is a feast of Irish tunes and dances originally created, and now adapted for schools, by Maire Clerkin. She is accompanied by Musical Director, fiddle player/dancer, Kira Ott and champion stepdancer Jennifer Keogh. Frank Simpson plays an array of flutes and whistles; Patrick D'Arcy plays ancient instruments including uilleann pipes (elbow bagpipes) and bodhran (drum). Renowned vocalist Moira Smiley sings haunting songs and plays accordion. Together they guide their audience on a cultural journey through Ireland's rich heritage.
