Michael Donnellan dances into Kilfenora

The star-studded concert being staged in Kilfenora Hall on Saturday 30 August has just had a notable addition – two-times World Champion Irish dancer Michael Donnellan.

He will appear with Cherish The Ladies in Kilfenora Hall on 30 August, joining other special guests the Kane Sisters and singer Cathie Ryan.

As is well-known, Michael rose to prominence initially with Riverdance, and has since developed his own School of Dancing – see https://www.facebook.com/michaeldonnellanschool . He has toured extensively and internationally with his own stage shows and those that he has choreographed, such as the recent “Rhythms of Ireland”.

In particular, he is renowned for his work with the Kilfenora Céilí Band, both as a performer and choreographer of dance troupes that form part of their spectacular concert performances. Michael also has family connections with Kilfenora.

Tickets (€15) for this very special event have now SOLD OUT!


Top Irish-American singer in Kilfenora concert

Cathie Ryan is to be the guest vocalist at the star-studded Cherish the Ladies concert being staged by Kilfenora Trad Fest on Saturday 30 August 2014.

Irish America Magazine twice named her one of the “Top 100 Irish Americans” and Chicago’s Irish American News has twice honoured her as “Irish Female Vocalist of the Decade.” A consummate entertainer, the Wall Street Journal calls her music “a revelation”.

Apart from her many musical collaborations, she has recorded five solo albums, the most recent being “Through Wind and Rain”. See http://www.cathieryan.com/ for more details.

This promises to be one of the most remarkable concerts held in North Clare in recent years. It starts at 8 pm, in Kilfenora Hall. Tickets have now SOLD OUT!
