New production of Fáinne Óir to be live-streamed from Claremorris

The highly acclaimed Fáinne Óir contemporary Irish dance drama which has played to capacity audiences at home in Mayo and also in Broadway, New York, is to stage a one-off live-stream performance on Friday March 26 next, from Claremorris Town Hall, with tickets now available through the Fund It creative arts online fundraising platform.

The new show will be led by the production team of Mayo-based composer, Kathy Fahey, who created the beautiful music and story for Fáinne Óir; along with Ciara Sexton, World Champion Irish dancer and choreographer; and professional musician, David Agnew; with music to be played by the band led by Dave McGauran, saxophonist with Riverdance; and narration throughout by one of Ireland's most distinctive voices, renowned Irish singer, Sean Keane.

Set during the Great Irish Famine, Fáinne Óir tells the beautiful love story of a young couple during times of tragedy and emigration for many Irish families. With music originally provided by Mayo Concert Orchestra, this new 70-minute production of Fáinne Óir will feature nine professional dancers and six musicians.

The original Fund It target of €6,000 for the live-stream performance was reached this week, with Kathy Fahey confirming the show can now go ahead. However, funding remains open, in order to support the cost of the performance, filming, set, lights, props, sound, wardrobe and sundry expenses needed to stage the diaspora-themed show, which takes place between Ireland and America.

Tickets at €20 each are now available on the Fund It page for this one-off and exclusive music and dance masterpiece, created and composed by one of Mayo's finest talents. See to view all funding options.
