A very special invitation from the Phoenicia International Festival of the Voice! Sunday August 7 – Phoenicia NY Breathtaking authentic Gaelic singing, music and dance direct from the Scotland, Ireland! Four very special performances of traditional Gaelic singing — by soloists Joy Dunlop, Noeleen Ni Cholla, Doimnic Mac Giolla Bhride and by the young singers and musicians of An Crann Og — bring the Festival to a rousing, foot stomping conclusion. Lending a helping hand (or feet in this case) to the joyous occasion will be Hudson Valley Celtic dancers; The D’Amby Project and Sean Nós (Irish for old style) dancer Siobhan Butler. Supporting the Scottish Gaelic singing of Joy and Noeleen will be Hudson Valley Gaelic vocalist and medieval Celtic harpist James Ruff. Four performances of the traditional Gaelic singing of Ireland and Scotland including instrumental music & dance bring the Phoenicia Festival of the Voice to a rousing, foot-stomping finale. Doimnic Mac Giolla Bhride, Noeleen Ni Cholla and Joy Dunlop are individually renowned, prize-winning specialists in the legendary sean-nos singing—solo, sometimes unaccompanied, often rhythmically complex. Joy is from the Oban area of the Scottish Highlands and the other performers hail from Donegal, one of the last Gaelic speaking areas of Ireland, including the very talented young musicians known as An Crann Óg, who have been delighting audiences around Ireland, the United Kingdom and across Europe for seven years. As these different performers fill the hills with the breathtaking harmonies and cadences of the ancient kingdoms of Scotland and Ireland, just try to keep your feet still, we dare you! Spontaneous and interpretive dance is strongly encouraged!
