2016 Comhaltas Concert Tour of Britain - Echoes of Erin

This presentation by Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann commemorates through our Irish song, music and dance, with narration, the long sequence of events that led to the 1916 Rising. It traces the quest for Irish cultural and political independence, beginning with the 1798 Rebellion, moving on to Young Ireland in the 1840s, Fenianism in the 1860s and the Gaelic Revival of the 1880s onwards.

Echoes of 1916 culminates in the Easter Rising which consolidated republicanism as a central part of Irish nationalism.

Echoes of Erin 2016 is a vibrating, colourful show of Irish Traditional Music, Song, Dance and Storytelling

Celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the 1916 Easter Rising
