Kickin' It Irish!
Celebrate Saint Paddy’s Day in true Irish style with Kickin’ It Irish, the family-friendly live Irish music and dance spectacular. Featuring Dublin native and original Riverdancer Cormac O’Sé, Kickin’ It Irish is a modern fusion of show-style Irish dance and live Irish music. The lineup consists of 20 world-class dancers, including regional and national champions, and an international six-piece band. In addition to Cormac O’Sé on accordion, the driving dance band includes Aidín Ní Shé, Midwest Fleadh champion in English and Irish song; Todd Menton, multi-instrumentalist and lead singer of band Boiled in Lead; Brian Miller of acclaimed band Bua; Randy Gosa of The Lost Forty; David Ochs on fiddle; and Seán O’Brien, former Riverdancer and Riverdance musical director.
Kickin’ It Irish makes its home in the music rooms and dance studios of the Celtic Junction Arts Center (recognized as best “Irish American Center” by IrishCentral’s Creativity and Arts Awards). The venue and educational facility, located in the Midway neighborhood in Saint Paul is home to O’Shea Irish Dance and the Center for Irish Music. Both organizations have a hand in training these young performers into the professionals they are.
This is the third of nine Kickin' it Irish performances at the Celtic Junction Arts Center. Kickin’ It Irish will also be returning to the Chanhassen Dinner Theatres where it sells out annually.
