LIMERICK songstress Emma Langford is among those performing at a special concert of music, song and dance at University Concert Hall next week.

The Limerick Fling takes place on Thursday, November 1 at 8pm and brings together award-winning artists with students and faculty of the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance at UL for the show.

One hundred performers from five continents will come together to celebrate all the creativity, talent and passion that the Irish World Academy has to offer in a unique concert at the UCH.

The Academy’s faculty and students will be joined by Grammy-award winning Rhiannon Giddens, Limerick’s own Emma Langford and the spectacular Fidget Feet Aerial Dance Company.

It promises to be a fantastic flash of music, song and dance, celebrating the sounds and gestures of our times. “It is an amazing opportunity for Limerick’s audiences and our own students to be exposed to special guests of this international calibre,” said Carl Corcoran, course director on the songwriting MA at the Irish World Academy.

“We are incredibly excited to see the collaborations that have taken place between our student musicians and Fidget Feet Aerial Dance Company, it really is going to be something very special.”

Dr Sandra Joyce, Director of the Irish World Academy said, “The Limerick Fling is an annual event for the Irish World Academy, in association with University Concert Hall. It is unique in that it showcases some of the strength and diversity of performance practices at the Academy.

“The Academy is very fortunate to have access to the fantastic professional facilities of UCH, especially with its newly renovated spaces, which provides an invaluable performance experience for all participants.”
