Celtic Angels Ireland brings traditional and contemporary tunes, dance and storytelling to the Farmington Civic Center on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m.
Everything Irish will blossom as seven Celtic Angel women, joined by the Dynamic Celtic Knights, bring high-energy, precision song and dance.
Civic Center Director Randy West said the Celtic Angels had planned to perform in Farmington in 2020 but was canceled during the COVID-19 pandemic. West has been working to reschedule them since that time.
“They are honest to goodness from Ireland … and they sing in tight harmony,” West said. The act includes a five-piece male production of “River Dance” and a lively four-piece band with traditional Irish instruments.
By introducing their songs with historical details, the Celtic Angels engage and inform the audience.
West said ticket sales have been strong, with 700 seats filled for the 1,200-seat Civic Center venue.
“They’re a very successful touring company. They pull good numbers everywhere. And there is a real interest in Celtic music here,” West said.
Headed by the powerhouse creative team direct from Ireland and featuring award-winning Irish and world champion singers, dancers and musicians, Celtic Angels Ireland presents a theatrical feast for all ages.
The performance is written, directed and choreographed by Louise Barry from Dublin, Ireland. The Diddley Idols provide the instrumentation with musical arrangements by Peter Sheridan of County Cavan, Ireland.
More than 30 Irish tunes are expected to be intertwined and performed by the Trinity Ensemble, Celtic Angels and the Celtic Knights Dancers.
