“Irish Heartbeat” on March 22 at 7.30pm at the Stad Theater
The “Irish Heartbeat” show celebrates the Irish way of life and their warm hospitality and friendliness. Three regular Irish bands and a motley town theater in Alton await visitors.
Alton A heart full of sociality, wisdom and passion – that is how the Irish people are described. All of these are excellent qualifications for being a country that consistently produces notable storytellers, dancers, singers and musicians. This also applies to the “Irish Heartbeat” show, which features three typical Irish bands touring together. A tour that has joined hands with the pulse of the Irish music scene, showcasing its traditional and innovative elements for 33 years. Especially around St. Patrick’s Day, the sense of unity between the Irish and their friends – wherever they are – is growing particularly strong. You can experience invisible relationships that culture alone can spread around the world. An authentic St. Patrick’s Day vibe includes not only great music, but also a colorful decorated city theater and regular drinks from Ireland.
Playing this evening: “3 on the Bund”: Quintet’s program is a journey through Irish tradition and a journey into world music. Rosin Ryan, Sean Kellihar, Rebecca McCarthy, Kent, Iceling Lyons and Simon Fisterr all cover how global Irish music has become.
“Bristow”: Formed in 2015 by Emma Robinson, Alison Croce and Joanna Boyle, the trio have made their mark in the USA. So it is no coincidence that Country and US are in the collection. You can hear American roots, especially in the versatility of the song.
“Connor Markey & Marty Barry”: Both love to experiment with open tunings and their string instruments. In addition to the best classics, you can also expect songs from your own pen.
