Children, teenagers and renowned performers from around Munster will take to the stage in the Lime Tree Theatre, Mary I for a night of traditional music, song and dance this Saturday.
Organised by TradTime, the concert forms part of the Limerick City of Culture programme and is being run in association with the Cathaoirleach of Limerick County Council, John Sheahan.
On the night a large number of young people from Limerick city and county will share the stage with their TradTime tutors, showcasing the skills they have learned over the past few months along with having the opportunity to watch some of Ireland’s best musicians and dancers live on stage.
Choreographed by award winning director Oliver Hurley, this show will also feature contemporary professional dancers alongside renowned local musicians such as the Mulcahy family, Pa Foley, Diarmuid O’Brien and the Templeglantine Senior Céilí band.
The concert will also mark the official launch of TradTime, an initiative that promotes the teaching and understanding of traditional Irish music, song and dance in primary schools around the country.
