About the Show
Brooklyn Irish Dance Company and award-winning recording artists Switchback present Celtic America, a beautiful, high-energy celebration of Irish heritage and the American dream.
Follow our story from the times of famine to the modern era as they dance their way from the old world to the land of opportunity. Celtic America tells the many different stories of the Irish in America: escaping the famine, working the fields, missing loved ones back home, and establishing a culture and community all their own. Featuring traditional Irish music, dance, and original folk & Americana tunes performed by the incredible duo Switchback, our dancers tell the story of the journey to America in a beautiful, intimate setting.
Thank you for a great premiere at Theatre80 - we look forward to performing Celtic America again next year!
We are working hard to bring Celtic America back to the stage next season and look forward to seeing you there! Interested in having Celtic America come to your town? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for booking information.
