PREVIEW: Mattie Kelly Center shows span Broadway to Ireland

Published: Wednesday, January 2, 2013 at 09:53 AM.

It was a time like no other in our nation’s history: when music moved America’s spirit and helped win a war.

Women of Ireland concert, Feb. 15

Like Celtic stage extravaganzas “Lord of the Dance” and “Riverdance,” the local audience will enjoy the talents of some of Ireland’s finest female performers and Irish dance’s zest in this internationally touring spectacle.

Ireland's traditions of music, song and dance will come alive for all ages in “Women of Ireland,” an innovative full-stage concert production displaying Ireland’s next generation of leading female talent.

The most revered qualities of Ireland’s ethnic music travel from the Irish cottage fireside and village community festival to the international concert hall in a contemporary setting featuring world championship dancers. 

Want to go?

All performances are at 7:30 p.m. at the Mattie Kelly Performing Arts Center on the Niceville campus of Northwest Florida State College.
