Celtic Legacy marks the return to the cabaret stage of singer Moira Danis in a show celebrating the beauty, power and vitality of Irish music. This is the latest in a string of highly successful shows and CDs (including Some People’s Lives, the 2013 Bistro Award winner for Outstanding Recording). The first performance will be Saturday, December 2 at 7 PM at Don’t Tell Mama in Manhattan.
Working once again with her music director Wells Hanley, along with Noah Hoffeld on cello and Mike Lunoe on percussion, Moira will present a century-spanning view of Celtic music. Inspired by a recent visit to her ancestors’ homeland, this show will include material by songwriters both old and new, from traditional tunes to current songs by the likes of U2 and Phil Coulter.
Using a rich musical tapestry, the singer will celebrate not only her own heritage, but the musical legacy Ireland has given to the world. Helmed by award-winning director Gerry Geddes, Celtic Legacy is described in press notes as “a moving, joyous, dramatic reminder of music’s ability to capture a moment in time and provide a snapshot of a country, a struggle, a history, a people and preserve it for generations to come.”
The performances of Moira Danis has been described by critics as consisting of “…intelligence, sensitivity and lovely singing,” “…cabaret at its best”, and work that “…will damn near levitate anyone who responds to excellence of song and singer.”
