Cabaret Craiceáilte returns to Dublin

Seachtain na Gaeilge 2010 is in full swing and will continue until 17th March 2010. Once again this year’s individuals all over the country will be treated to various cultural events such as workshops, Irish Language classes, traditional and sean-nós music session, readings, historic tours plus much more throughout the two weeks.

To celebrate Seachtain na Gaeilge and St. Patricks Day a superb evening of music, song and dance will take place in the Odeon in the heart of Dublin on Tuesday, 16th March 2010. Performers on the night include the best Reggae and Celtic Ska Gaelach band in Ireland ’Bréag’. 

Formed in 1993, initially to raise money for local Irish language schools, Bréag have become one of the most refined and original acts of their kind.

Over the last decade, having performed as far afield as Sri Lanka, Bréag have developed a Celtic fusion never before heard. The first generation of urban Gaelic speakers in modern Belfast, their Gaelic heritage permeates through their lyrics and music.

Bréag have performed throughout Europe and Asia, and have returned to the Basque country and Switzerland on numerous occasions.

Other performers include Henrietta Game and multi-talented Donegal fiddlers Cíarán Ó Maonaigh, Aidan Ó Domhnaill and Damien Mc Geehan.

The renowned sean-nós singer Doiminic Mac Giolla Bhrighde from Na Doirí Beaga, Co. Donegal - a singer who stole the show at last year’s Oireachtas na Samhna and won the acclaimed award Corn Uí Riada - will also perform on the night.  Dominic is an extremely talented sean-nós singer for many years. Other special guests include many talented sean-nós singers such as Maire Ní Choilm - a young and extremely talented sean-nós singer from Mín an Iolair, Na Doirí Beaga, Co. Donegal.

Máire scooped the first prize at the ladies singing competition during last year’s oireachtas na Samhna in Letterkenny with a wonderful breathtaking performance.

Other guests include Bríd Ní hIcí, another talented Donegal singer from Gaoth Dobhair along with other well-known musician and singers.
