The Celtic Flames troupe performs a quality eclectic mix of traditional Irish music, song and dance fused with a more contemporary style. Formed originally as 10 piece group in 2011, it has grown to include the top young talent to emerge from the west of Ireland in recent years and their mission is to entertain! Using 15 different musical instruments to deliver a unique and vibrant sound, their versatile world champion dancers perform the full dynamic range of Irish dancing including light, heavy, set, sean-nos and twig dancing while a diverse variety of singers perform a seductive hybrid of rousing traditional ballads and modern classics from artists like Adele, Bob Dylan and Mumford and Sons. Their atmospheric show generates a brilliant and energetic night’s entertainment suitable for all ages. At times, Celtic Flames burns with a light flicker, at times with a searing spark and at times it sets the place on fire! So treat yourself to a moody blend of ancient and modern, of a rich musical tradition with a contemporary feel and come to see the wonderful Celtic Flames perform.
Here is a little background on some of the younger talent in the Celtic Flames troupe: Brother and sister and brother Emily and Emmet Greaney (see photo) are in 3rd and 5th class respectively in Brierfield National School in County Galway and have won competitions all over Ireland in harp, banjo and concertina in the past five years. Emily also dances in the show and is being tipped for stardom by all who see her perform. They can’t wait for the Celtic Flames tour of England! The other group members include some of the top young talent in the west of Ireland, including four World Champion dancers who have performed all over the world in the past few years with Michael Flatley’s ‘Lord of the Dance’ show.
