This very special performance tells the story of the world- renowned fiddle player Michael Coleman (1891- 1945). This performance brings to life the personality and music of the 20th centuryís most gifted and influential traditional musician.
Based on actual events, the character of Coleman is skilfully narrated, contrasting the poignant overtones of his life with the vibrancy and depth of his music. The show will appeal not only to lovers of Colemanís ground-breaking music, but also those with an interest in the historic and social environment which was to change Ireland so dramatically. The show features a cast of outstanding musicians, singers and dancers which we hope will leave the audience proud that a show of this standard is, in its entirety, locally produced.
The Michael Coleman Story will run on Wednesday 5th July, Aug 2nd and Aug 23, show starts at 8.30pm.
