New Stage Show
Journey of the Ulster Muse
A musical journey, from ancient times to the present, exploring crossovers and influences from near and far.
The journey explains how music was inspired and shared through migration of people and the movement of soldiers, sailors, wandering minstrels and harpers.
It is where traditional Ulster-Scots meets Irish, Scottish, English, and Old-Time Appalachian - before the Muse transcends and takes us to another zone.
It is where traditional flute, fiddle, bagpipes and traditional dance meets rock guitar and Lambeg drum.
Created and performed by Willie Drennan, with fellow Ulster-Scots musicians and special guest performers.
This stage show is set to tour theatres in Northern Ireland in autumn and winter of 2022/23
See Ulster Muse Page for more details.
