Commissioned by Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann, featuring The Comhaltas National Folk Orchestra of Ireland and some of Ireland's best musicians, singers and dancers, ‘Legacy’ traces the roots of the tradition where generations of Irish men and women nurtured our music and song, language and stories to leave us with the vibrant, living legacy of our Irish traditional arts today.
’Legacy’, featuring the Comhaltas National Folk Orchestra of Ireland and special guests, will take you on a journey through the musical and cultural landscape of Ireland honouring some of the great men and women who have helped shape and define our tradition down through the generations. Inspired by some of the our greatest tunes and songs, Legacy will also feature newly composed music by Tom Doorley and will be scripted and directed by Ray Conway.
The Comhaltas National Folk Orchestra of Ireland is made up of over sixty of the finest young traditional and classical musicians from 20 different counties in Ireland and from the U.K. The orchestra was first formed by Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann in the late 1980s and has always attracted the most gifted young Irish musicians and singers.
