The journey begins in kitchens, barns, and fields of rural Ireland; but as the Great Hunger closes in, the people look west 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 while showcasing the new pioneers who will define the new standard of traditional Irish music and dance.
