A Gaelic Gathering: Irish Music & Dance
A Gaelic Gathering – Irish Music and Dance, was first commissioned by The Music Center for a 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 Máire Clerkin. She is accompanied by Musical Director, fiddle player, dancer and vocalist, Kira Ott, and champion step-dancers Daithi Fisher, Megan Drake and Ian McLeod. Susan Winsberg plays an array of flutes and whistles; Patrick D’Arcy plays ancient instruments such as the uilleann pipes (elbow bagpipes) and bodhran (drum). Together they guide their audience on a cultural journey through Ireland’s rich heritage.
