Pulses of Tradition – a performance of traditional music dancing and singing.

 

World class traditional Irish musicians and performers are setting pulses racing in Cork as the captivating concert Pulses of Tradition wows locals and visitors alike.  The show, which is commissioned by Cork City Council, will run every week until the 28th of September at Triskel Christchurch, in Cork City centre.

Being hailed as the next Riverdance, Pulses of Tradition is a thrilling journey of Irish traditional culture featuring outstanding Irish dancers, Irish singing sensations and talented musicians playing everything from the flute to the tin whistle, guitar, bodhran, banjo, piano, accordion and fiddle.

What is unique about this show is that it not only embraces the traditions of the past but also celebrates the contemporary side of what is very much a living tradition. This is further enhanced by the integration of multi-media, with vivid imagery and sounds interlaced with the show.

Pulses of Tradition is created and produced by Brian Morrissey and staged by Corcadorca’s Pat Kiernan.  Lead performers include singer Elaine Cormican and dancer Andrew Vickers.

Cork has long been a hub for Irish tradition, with other established events including the annual Folk Festival and the regular Lee Sessions that take place in pubs throughout the city centre.
