Celtic Crossroads at The Palace Theater
Waterbury will celebrate St. Patrick’s Day a few days early when western Ireland’s most talented export, Celtic Crossroads, bring the past, present and future of Irish music to the Palace Theater on Wednesday, March 13, at 7:30p.m. Tickets for the group’s World Fusion Tour are $45 and $35 and can be purchased by phone at 203-346-2000, online at www.palacetheaterct.org, or in person at the box office, 100 East Main Street.
Critically-acclaimed as “one of the most authentic and exhilarating shows to come from Ireland in decades,” Celtic Crossroads features a bold, young group of seven world-class musicians, who began their journey busking on the streets of Galway in the west of Ireland. The cast, all sons and daughters of musicians steeped in the tradition of the Emerald Isle’s most cherished, handed-down tunes, collectively play over twenty instruments and are redefining the way Celtic music is experienced and performed. Their international World Fusion Tour offers audiences an explosion of youthful energy and dazzling musicianship that abounds with fusions of traditional Irish music, bluegrass, gypsy, and jazz. Each performance is a tribute to their relatives and their country, and each song is played with wild and raucous energy that reenergizes the soul and leaves their audiences stomping for more.
The name Celtic Crossroads originates from a time in Ireland when neighboring communities met at the crossroads between towns and villages to socialize long before the pub tradition began. With a focus on keeping the tradition of Irish music alive, each performer nurtures this bygone concept, but by virtue of their young age and raw talent, they high-kick this tradition into the twenty-first century.
