The Celtic vibe comes alive in 2021! Think Riverdance, Scottish kilts and pipes, Irish whistles and fiddles, tender love lilts … not to mention all those moving reminiscences on windswept moors and craggy hills across the great Celtic musical landscape.
Watch Musical Director Patrick Pickett (a true ‘Lord of the Dance’!) swirl his baton as he works the rich seam of Celtic classics in one of the Queensland Pops’ most requested series of concerts. Hear the legends, the fables, the humour, the melancholy and the euphoria all come to life with some of Australia’s best-loved sings and traditional instrumentalists and dancers. A warm welcome back to special guest stars Gregory Moore and Sarah Calderwood, who will combine the very best elements of Celtic music into one unforgettable package. Returning to showcase his traditional Irish music talents is Kevin Higgins, who plays the concert wooden flute and is a master of the Uilleann Pipes, both of which he plays extensively as soloist and in bands throughout Australia and overseas.
Savour the spectacular precision of the all-star line-up of dancers who will be the crowning glory of theCeltic Spectacular: the Watkins Academy of Irish Dance, the OzScot Highland Dancers and the glorious strains of the BBC Pipes and Drums, all of which promise to awaken the ancient spirits and leave you spellbound.
