Celtic Legends

Australian Tour, October - November 2014

Traditional Irish dance in an intimate setting


Celebrating over ten adventurous years of touring worldwide Celtic Legends will be touring capital cities and regionally throughout Australia from October – November 2014. Celtic Legends brings you 100% live traditional Irish dance, music and song creating an electric atmosphere which has swept countless international audiences away to the heart of Ireland.

Born in the wild and beautiful hills of Connemara in Ireland back in 2002, Celtic Legends recreates the art form in its own way by stripping it down to the bare essentials, presenting a traditional dance show which has a more vital feel. With cast members that are more creative and dynamic, audiences are more engaged and everyone leaves the show feeling they have been more involved and have had more of an insight into what Ireland really is.

The music is traditional at its core with all of Ireland’s national instruments, the fiddle driving frenetic reels, the great Irish drum known as the Bodhran beating out the driving rhythms of the band, the plaintive uileann pipes calling back to days of yore with beautiful and haunting slow airs.

The musicians are the worlds best with virtuoso quality and a love for their art unmatched.

Eric Dessauvages is the driving force behind the whole operation. His ambition and determination has brought the show from its humble beginnings to the worldwide platform it holds today. Seeing the interest in traditional Irish music through Europe, Eric Dessauvages formed both Celtic Legends and the boutique entertainment company Pele Mele Production in 2005. Pele Mele Productions has grown to become a force in Celtic Entertainment across the globe while remaining based in the UK.

The Celtic Legends dancers take the stage with brilliant flashes of speed. All of them are experienced despite their youth, they have been performing from an early age winning many world championships and touring with shows like Riverdance and Lord of the Dance. The intricate group numbers are complimented by solo spots which are the hit of the night.
