Celtic Crossroads will perform at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall on February 21, 2013. Celtic music is steeped in history, and carries a tumultuous story of reemergence in modern society. Not many people are aware that practicing traditional Irish arts was outlawed in the homeland less than 100 years ago and unlawful gatherings at crossroads were tinged with danger. Nothing was written down and Irish music was kept secretively in the hearts of its people. The cast of Celtic Crossroads, all sons and daughters of musicians, steeped in the tradition of these handed down tunes, play with the wild, raucous relish of freedom, in tribute to their relatives and their country. Celtic Crossroads is a glorious elevation of a new, young generation whom are boldly redefining Celtic music on the world stage.
Tickets are priced from $10-$45. For more information, call The Box Office at 941-953-3368, or toll free at 800-826-9303, or visit www.VanWezel.org.
