Greeneville: Murphy’s Celtic Legacy

March 30, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Murphy’s Celtic Legacy dances into the Niswonger Performing Arts Center March 30th 

GREENEVILLE, TN – Experience traditional Irish dance as Murphy’s Celtic Legacy brings a battle of styles with lightning fast footwork and a clash of colors, direct from the Emerald Isle. Murphy’s Celtic Legacy presents the best Irish dancers from around the globe for this riveting, dramatic show at the Niswonger Performing Arts Center on Saturday, March 30th at 7:30 p.m.

Featuring some of the quickest, most expressive legs in the world, Murphy’s Celtic Legacy is a percussive dance-off that reinvigorates traditional Irish Dance. The elaborate stage production stars a cast of 20+ dancers and musicians from such sensations as Riverdance and Lord of the Dance, and bursts with riveting jigs, reels and haunting ballads. Created by Chris Hannah, former principal dancer for Lord of the Dance, Murphy’s Celtic Legacy is drawn from Irish folklore and centers on an original tale developed by Hannon, who is the show’s dance lead. The tale culminates with an epic battle between good and evil, a standoff prompted by Kings & Queens, rebels and magic. The Murphy clan is at the heart of the drama as they flee the corrupt tyrants of their native Eire in search of a better future, a quest for peace that vanquishes evil.

Together with Hannon’s unique and fabulous fusion of choreography, a number of original compositions by acclaimed Irish musicians John Elliot and Gerry Conlon make Murphy’s Celtic Legacy an unforgettable night of artistry. Murphy’s strong cast gives an invigorating performance of traditional Irish Dance creating a show like no other. This is Irish Dance reborn.
