IRE­LAND’S cel­e­brated stage pro­duc­tion The Rhythms of Ire­land re­turns to Man­durah later this month with its 10 year an­niver­sary tour.

The Rhythms of Ire­land brings to­gether Ire­land’s most cel­e­brated and elite com­pany of dancers, with their awe-in­spir­ing and in­no­va­tive pro­duc­tion seen by more than two mil­lion peo­ple.

Orig­i­nally from Water­ford, lead mu­si­cian David De­laney has quickly es­tab­lished him­self as one of the most ver­sa­tile and in de­mand tra­di­tional mu­si­cians around today.

Com­ing from a highly mu­si­cal fam­ily, his fa­ther Ben is the lead vo­cal­ist for Ir­ish folk band Drops of Brandy, and he has been im­mersed in Ir­ish mu­sic for as long as he re­mem­bers.

Start­ing on a penny whis­tle at age seven, De­laney grad­u­ated to the more dif­fi­cult vi­olin, spe­cial­is­ing in Celtic and French-Cana­dian fid­dle mu­sic.

He also per­forms on the bodhran, gui­tar and the uil­leann pipes, a uniquely Ir­ish in­stru­ment with a haunt­ing sound. THE ES­SEN­TIALS The Rhythms of Ire­land Man­durah Per­form­ing Arts Cen­tre Tues­day, Novem­ber 28
