Award-winning international artists join students and faculty of the Irish World Academy for a special concert music, song and dance at the University Concert Hall, Limerick.
One hundred performers from five continents will come together to celebrate all the creativity, talent and passion that the Irish World Academy has to offer in this unique concert. The Academy’s faculty and students will be joined by Grammy-award winning Rhiannon Giddens, Limerick’s own Emma Langford and the spectacular Fidget Feet Aerial Dance Company.
The Limerick Fling promises to be a fantastic flash of music, song and dance! Celebrating the sounds and gestures of our times, the concert will include Irish Traditional Music and dance, Ethiopian Traditional Music, Gospel Music, Aerial Dance, Folk Music and Choral Music.
Carl Corcoran, a 40 year veteran of the music business as a singer/songwriter, promoter and acclaimed broadcaster on RTÉ LyricFM and the Course Director of the Academy’s MA Songwriting will be MC for the evening. Carl said, “It is an amazing opportunity for Limerick’s audiences and our own students to be exposed to special guests of this international calibre. We are incredibly excited to see the collaborations that have taken place between our student musicians and Fidget Feet Aerial Dance Company, it really is going to be something very special.”
