Laugh, sing, cry and surrender your heart to Ireland’s greatest stories, songs and music.
Sionnach Rua’s Great Irish Song Book brings Irelands rich and unique culture to the shores of Australia, with a romantic passion that runs deep in Celtic veins.
Be entertained by lead Irishman, Gallie with authentic Irish Traditional Music and instruments, interwoven with rich stories from Gallie’s upbringing, tales of Irish traditions and histories, audiences will be transported back to a lively session in a celebration of Celtic music with songs ranging from Planxty to Van Morrison to the Dubliners.
This show will make you feel like you are visiting a lively “session” in an Irish bar without having to travel to Dingle. An assured crowd pleaser.
Joining Gallie [Vocals, bodhrán, acoustic guitar] are acclaimed Australian maestro’s and multi-instrumentalists, Paddy Montgomery, recently awarded Australian Folk Music Awards, 2022 Instrumentalist of the Year [mandolin, banjo] Ruth Wise [fiddle] and Sam Davies [uilleann pipes, tin whistle, low whistle].
Some say Irish Folk music is “Crude, exciting, jagged and primeval” …we say there’s nothin wrong with that.
