Description

The Burnsville Performing Arts Center is thrilled to announce the return of Ireland’s most talented export, Celtic Crossroads. The new World Fusion Tour abounds with fusions of traditional Irish music, bluegrass, gypsy and jazz whilst pulsating with the rhythms of exciting Irish dance percussion.

The unstoppable group that started off performing on the streets of Galway city is now headlining festivals and arena concerts around the world. No other monstrosity of a theater production have done what these guys have done based on start-up capital which would have been thrown into a guitar case on the side of a street only five years ago!

Burnsville PAC patrons will be some of the first to feast their eyes on the explosive spectacle that is the Celtic Crossroads, World Fusion Tour before the show traverses the globe for the next two years. Not many people are aware that practicing traditional Irish arts was outlawed in the homeland less than 100 years ago and unlawful gatherings at crossroads were tinged with danger.

Nothing was written down and Irish music was kept secretively in the hearts of its people. The cast of Celtic Crossroads, all sons and daughters of musicians, steeped in the tradition of these handed down tunes, play with the wild, raucous relish of freedom, in tribute to their relatives and their country. Celtic Crossroads is a glorious elevation of a new, young generation whom are boldly redefining Celtic music on the world stage.

In a recent interview one of the performers; Michael McClintock commented “The Celtic Crossroads stage production is far more than just musicians playing tunes in the background. Everyone, from the musicians, dancers, directors, technicians, etc. all have the fire of the show within them which ignites into a cataclysmic performance every single night. We make audience members laugh, cry, and everything in between. “
