The Legend of Grainne Mhaol Summer Show
13 June 2012 - 26 September 2012
The popular summer music show ‘The Legend of Gráinne Mhaol’ returns to Hotel Westport for its fourth season this summer with a star studded line up of musicians, singers and dancers from all over the West of Ireland. Based on the real-life story of the legendary Irish Pirate Queen Grace O’ Malley or Gráinne Mhaol this live show runs every Monday and Wednesday night from June 13th until September 26th. The show is a must see for anyone visiting Mayo this summer. Lord of the Dance fiddle player Cora Smyth headlines the show with renowned balladeers James Kilbane and Jenny Mulvey, Latino dancer Pollyanna Guedes, All-Ireland champion box player Darragh Healy and some of Ireland’s most gifted sean nós dancers Ashline and Micheal Cunningham and Liam Scanlon all on board for this magical and mythical voyage into Mayo. The Gráinne Mhaol traditional music show is full of energy and enthusiasm and keeps audiences of all ages gripped from start to finish as it blends the old and the new; the contemporary and the ancient, the sean nós dancing against the more modern steps and styles of Irish Dancing. The Gráinne Mhaol show is unique entertainment that combines old traditional Irish dance with the passionate Latino rhythms of tango, flamenco and salsa in a performance of strength and passion. The Gráinne Mhaol Show was described on RTÉ Radio as ‘One of the best summer shows in Ireland’ while the Irish Times stated ‘This is a superb production full of passion and energy’.
