AN EXTRAVAGANZA OF SIGHTS AND SOUNDS OF IRISH CULTURE
A talented cast brings to life the epic tale of Celtic culture, carrying its traditional melodies and steps to the new world with a gala celebration of Irish music and dance.
The journey begins in rural Ireland, prior to the famine, in kitchens, barns and fields. As the great hunger closes in, the people look west, across the ocean to New York City.
Mingling with immigrants from around the globe, the Irish congregate in dance gatherings, some bound for the Appalachian Mountains where ancient Irish melodies fuse with African rhythms, creating American tap dance and early roots music.
The journey leads us to the present moment, celebrating the incredible evolution of Irish traditional dance and music—showcasing the new pioneers who will define the new standard of traditional Irish music and dance.

He is not white. He’s not even light-skinned. Make no mistake about it; he is black. Yet, Klan-Destine Relationships author and Accidental Courtesy star, Daryl Davis has come in closer contact with members of the Ku Klux Klan than most white non-members and certainly most blacks — short of being on the wrong end of a rope. What’s more? He continues to do so, making him one of the most unique lecturers on the speaking circuit today.
Over the last twenty-five years, Daryl Davis has walked on the edge with one foot dangling over the precipice. His stories of setting up surprise meetings with Klan leaders unaware of his skin color and attending KKK rallies, has the suspense of Hitchcock, keeping audiences riveted to their seats in disbelief. He is one man successfully taking on the oldest (150 years) and most racist and organization in the United States, by himself.
