Description

The 23rd Blas International Summer School of Irish Traditional Music and Dance proudly presents a céilí featuring The Shandrum Céilí Band as part of their 2019 public events.

The Shandrum Céilí Band are three-time Senior Céilí Band Champions at the All-Ireland Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann. Individually, each member of the band has achieved success on the céilí band circuit, winning medals in all age groups right through to senior level. Known for their power, drive and lift to playing, The Shandrum Céilí Band have a distinct sound and are now more than ever in demand across the country and abroad to provide music for dances, concerts and céilithe.

Only a handful of céilí bands in the history of the coveted Senior Céilí Band competition have managed to achieve the elusive “3-in-a-row". In August 2017, The Shandrum Céilí Band attained this remarkable feat and entered the history books standing beside legendary bands such as the Kilfenora, and the Siamsa, to name a few.

Since being crowned All-Ireland champions, The Shandrum have had many noteworthy appearances including performing on TG4’s Fleadh TV and RTÉ’s Fleadh Cheoil programmes, a recital for the Lord Mayor of Cork in Cork City Hall, a performance at Áras an Uachtaráin on St. Patrick’s Day 2016, and performing in Dublin Castle for the Official 1916 Rising State Commemoration. All these achievements have become stuff of legend since the band formed in December 2014, but there is nothing they love more than to play for set dancers and friends at céilithe around the country.

There will also be a céilí dance caller on the night; all levels welcome.

This event is supported by funding from the Limerick Culture and Arts Office, Limerick City and County Council.
