1 Irish Town Way, M8 0AE Manchester, United Kingdom
A creative collaboration between the Irish Diaspora Foundation, the local branch of the organisation for traditional Irish music, Comhaltas na Breataine (St Wilfrid’s), and Tura Aratura, this free showcase of sean-nós dance and music provides a fabulous opportunity to access a vibrant and popular Irish cultural form and tradition with multiple resonances. Sean-nós singing has long addressed Irish migrancies and sean-nós dance, in its most popular and democratic expression, box and barrel dancing, opens new spaces and publics to traditional Irish music and dance. Come along, we aim to surprise and delight!!!
