Michael Londra in concert
Green Valley Recreation, West Center
From the heart of Ireland, Michael Londra brings you an evening of the songs and stories of Ireland. One of the world’s leading Irish tenors, Michael hails from a small town in the Emerald Isle known for its singing. The voice of Riverdance on Broadway and creator of Celtic Fire sings traditional ballads that are centuries old, Celtic classics that are now known around the world and American songs you will know and love, with an Irish connection. Michael’s version of “Danny Boy” is described as one of the best recordings of the song, ever. Known for his easy Irish charm and storytelling, the PBS star shares stories of the Irish and their ways with tales of his youth in the “auld sod” and talks of the strong bonds between the US and Erin. With an ensemble of piano, guitar, pipes and whistles, you not only get to hear “one of the greatest Irish singers of our time” but you will also see the jigs and reels that make you want to jump up out of your seats to dance.
