Celtic Crossroads is critically acclaimed as "the most exhilarating and authentic show to come from Ireland in decades - not to be missed". It is an explosion of youthful energy and dazzling musicianship. Celtic Crossroads abounds with fusions of traditional Irish music, bluegrass, gypsy and jazz while pulsating with the rhythms of exciting Irish dance percussion.
Spontaneous mid show ovations are the norm, and enraptured audiences are always compelled to shout, and SHOUT for more. Just when you think that you have seen the best that Irish music has to offer, a fresh new show from Ireland is taking the art form to an entirely new level. Celtic Crossroads presents Irish music like never before, set to do to Irish music what Riverdance has done to Irish dance.
The inventive arrangements and bass-driven grooves are steering Irish acoustic music into surprising new territory. On its first American visit, word-of mouth alone led to a sell out tour. Celtic Crossroads show itself, incorporating seven world-class musicians, playing over twenty instruments on stage, is a fantastic spectacle. From start to finish you are captivated by a wonderful fusion of musical genres in the Irish music family, such as eastern European Gypsy, north American Bluegrass, world Classical and Jazz, and the various forms of Celtic music from around Europe and the rest of the world.
"I enjoyed the show until I learned my boss got her tickets for $10. and I paid over $50. Loved the story-telling, music, musician abilities and dancing."
"This show was an epic blend of ballads that made you swoon, jigs that made you want to get out of your seats, dance that made you shake your head in amazement, stories that made you want to travel to Ireland and jokes that made you fall in love with all the performers. If I didn't have to work this week I would have followed the tour bus to the next show! Glad I have the cd's and DVD to enjoy this troupe for a long time!"
"Wonderful music and Fantastic artists! Excellent show."
"I've seen a few Irish dance,or song troupes before,and this group had some exceptional musicians and some capable dancers, but the lead female songstress had a clear, precise, utterly seductive voice as sharp as a knife... Not knowing if her love of Irish music drives her career, but she could easily crossover to another genre and be successful, super successful in my opinion... fantastic voice.... loved the show...."
"Singing, dancing, musicianship- all of it was awesome!"
"Celtic Crossroads blew us away - they are all outstanding musicians - very personable introducing songs and telling stories - clearly they love playing together. The music ranged from haunting to rumbling along - singing was outstanding and the 3 dancers were fantastic too and on just the right amount of time - not all dancing throughout the show. Highly recommend seeing them. Burnsville perfroming arts center is a beautiful gem I had never been too as well. The mayor introduced the show."
"This group is very energic, entertaining, and fun to listen to. The musicianship of the goup is outstanding, and each member has multiple musical talents. I especially liked how they explained about the music and their instruments between songs. The dancing was fabulous and mixed with humor. I'll definitely see them again when they're back in our area."
