Celtic Nights - Spirit of Freedom

Just as a plant craves light, Celtic people are drawn to music and song. Scattered around the world like seeds on the wind, they are propelled by the powerful rhythms and motifs of a mysterious and exuberant ancient culture. Music is the soul, the very lifeblood of their tradition. It binds them together, even as it sets them apart. This driving passion for music and dance is the keystone of Celitc identity.

Their response to melody, lyric, and the criss-crossing rhythms of Irish dance is reflexive, intuitive, and filled with joy. The Irish embrace their musical culture like no other nation. And their pride in artistry is its own reward. Above all else, it is this natural affinity with music and song that has given Celtic people a truly global voice. A Celtic Voice. Every thundering dance tune and plaintive melody is a separate thread in the broad and colourful tapestry of Celtic music.

Spirit of Freedom tells the story of Irish independence, beginning
100 years ago with the Easter Rising. Akin to America's 4th of July, the Easter Rising of 1916 created the Ireland we know and love today. Through music, song, dance, and storytelling, Celtic Nights honors the struggle of a people fighting to gain freedom, independence, and true democracy.





"I have seen the original Riverdance and it was great BUT there is no comparison with the entertainment Celtic Nights gave"
--Michelle Pelletier Cormier

"Celtic nights have brought our distinctive and evolving music and dance tradition to the world stage and showcased our tradition in spectacular fashion"
--Enda Kenny, the prime minister of Ireland

"Six of Irelandís most accomplished dancers mirror six of its finest voices to present a spell-binding and exhilarating picture of a proud people and their passion."
--The Valentine Theater, New York.
