IN STEP TO ART OF IRISH
Celtic Legends has notched up 10 years of delivering performances around the world which are soaked in Irish tradition, to be sure
Born in the wild and beautiful hills of Connemara in Ireland, Celtic Legends is celebrating more than 10 adventurous years performing Irish dance with a worldwide tour, including a performance on the Gold Coast next week.
Celtic Legends features live traditional Irish dance, music and song, creating an electric atmosphere that has swept away audiences across the globe.
The music is traditional at its core with all of Ireland’s national instruments – the fiddle-driving frenetic reels, the great Irish drum known as the bodhran beating out the driving rhythms of the band and the plaintive uillean pipes calling back to days of yore with beautiful and haunting slow airs.
The musicians are among the world’s best with virtuoso quality and a love for their art.
Eric Dessauvages is the driving force behind the whole operation.
Seeing the interest in traditional Irish music through Europe, Dessauvages formed both Celtic Legends and the boutique entertainment company Pele Mele Production in 2005 and has managed years of successful touring since.
Pele Mele Productions has grown to become a force in Celtic entertainment across the globe.
Despite their youth, Celtic Legends dancers have performed from an early age and won many world championships. They’ve also toured with shows Riverdance and Lord of the Dance.
Celtic Legends will perform on the Gold Coast next week.
