With iconic dancer Colin Dunne and celebrated musicians Tóla Custy, Maeve Gilchrist and David Power

The John Hewitt Society is thrilled to present Edges of Light, an exciting new collaboration between the prodigiously talented dancer and former star of Riverdance, Colin Dunne, award-winning Co Clare fiddler Tola Custy, New York-based harpist Maeve Gilchrist and renowned uilleann piper David Power, a regular collaborator with Martin Hayes. This newly-commissioned work is a sparkling kaleidoscope of melody and rhythm inspired by the sights and sounds of an Irish dawn, a mix of contemporary and traditional music with dance not only as a visual element but part of the sound-scape of the whole piece.

Mixing contemporary and traditional music with dance, this theatrical show is an exciting celebration of melody and rhythm. The combined talent of these hugely talented artists is an experience not to be missed.
