Celtic Crossroads is a veritable explosion of youthful energy and astounding musicianship. Fusions of Irish music, bluegrass, gypsy and jazz pulsate with the underlying spark of Irish dance percussion. The live shows are a spectacle of talent, displaying how Irish music influenced the global birth of a multitude of musical genres. This show is redefining Irish music by going right to the heart of its rhythms. Seven world-class musicians, playing over twenty instruments on stage, is a fantastic spectacle. The group is led by Irish/Australian Musical Director, Michael McClintock. In 2006, Michael arrived in Galway on a mission to share his experiences through his travels of how Irish music influenced musicians throughout the world. Michael is originally from Dublin, but moved to Australia at the age of three, but is now involved with Celtic Crossroads on a full time basis. Celtic Crossroads is doing for Irish music what Riverdance has done for Irish dance – not to be missed!
