Sláinte: A Celtic Soirée II ☘️
March 11 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm
In 2021 Frantically Atlantic staged Sláinte A Celtic Soirée at the Fredericton Playhouse to a sold-out crowd!
Due to Covid Restrictions we had to postpone our 2022 performance. However, we will be back on March 11, 2023. We have a stellar line up of ten musicians and performers with instruments that include fiddle, accordion, Irish Bouzouki, bodhran, penny whistles, piano, bass, guitar, ukulele, concertina, hammered dulcimer, banjo, Shruti box and spoons.
We will weave poems by William Butler Yeats throughout the performance and it is our goal to celebrate our rich Celtic roots through music, song, storytelling, and Irish dance. Our show is directed and produced by Don Rigley and Michelle Daigle of Frantically Atlantic. Our lighting designer is Jonathan Harpur and our videographer is Gary Weekes.
Our performers include Don Rigley, Tom Richards, Julie Robinson, Patrick and Dan Steeves, Michel Boudreault, Dennis Beers, Carolyn Holyoke and Michelle Daigle with special guest Julia Bannister. A portion of our proceeds will benefit the Atlantic Wildlife Institute.
We are dedicating our show in memory of Maura Heffernan.
