With dizzying Irish dancing, inventive arrangements and bass-driven grooves, the likes of this show have never been seen before. The name Celtic Crossroads originates from a time in Ireland when neighbouring communities met at the crossroads between towns and villages to socialize and, play music. Classically trained musicians transport audiences across the Atlantic to the Emerald Isle with interludes from the haunting uilleann pipes, cheerful whistles, silky flute and the Irish harp. The performers share their stories through signature fiddle playing, explosive banjo and guitar riffs, rounding out this evening of musical mastery.. Event Details. Location: 205 8 Avenue Southeast
