Essence of Ireland back with new show

FANS of top quality Irish music will be in for a treat in Skegness this Friday when ‘Essence of Ireland’ stops off in the town as part of its latest UK tour.

On the back of hugely successful tours in 2010 and 2011, Essence of Ireland has returned with a brand new show that its producers promise will be “bigger and better than ever”.

“Esssence of Ireland follows the story of Sean Dempsey and Coro McGowen, who meet in Ireland in the 1940s, but are forced apart when Sean moves to New York to find work,” said a spokesperson.

“The moving story depicts the letters sent between the two during their time apart.

“Combining breathtaking dance routines with the very best of Irish music and a touch of Irish craic, all cleverly woven into a heart-warming tale, Essence of Ireland is performed by a cast of some of the country’s finest dancers, singers and musicians. You’ll hear songs such as Galway Girl, Carrickfergus, You Raise Me Up and Song for Ireland, to name a few.

“With a live band, a hugely talented cast of dancers, and plenty of dazzling costumes Essence of Ireland captures the true spirit of the Emerald Isle.

“Come for the Craic and don’t miss this sensational show,” they added.

The show will be performed at the Embassy Theatre in Skegness this Friday, April 20 at 7.30pm.

Tickets cost £23.50 for adults, £22.50 for over 60s and £11 for children.
