Irish eyes will be smiling when Celtic Dream high kicks its way into Blackpool North Pier Theatre tonight.
The show is back on tour by popular demand and stars Kevin Murray and Jenny Bailey who have been dancing for 20 years and have competed in regional, national, and world championship competitions.
“Kevin and I originally met on tour in another Irish dancing production dancing as lead, and since then, we’ve been together as lead dancers, business partners, and partners,” said Jenny. “We were approached by the producer of Celtic Dream and now here we are, on our UK tour.” Celtic Dream features eight world championship ranked Irish dancers, three Dream Tenors, and a Celtic female vocalist.
“Although we have an international cast we are also utilizing England’s very own talent in Kevin and his two sisters from Merseyside who are part of the Celtic Dream dancers,” says Jenny. “With a perfect blend of traditional and modern Irish song and dance, Celtic Dream welcomes you to Ireland. Our Dream Tenors are from Ireland and throughout the show perform classic and contemporary pieces, while also creating a friendly atmosphere by sharing the old Irish ‘craic.’”
The show is sponsored by Tourism Ireland and is helping to promote The Gathering 2013, which is about asking anyone who has Irish blood, a link to Ireland, or even just a love of the country to enjoy a series of diverse events throughout next year.
