To celebrate our upcoming St Patrick’s Day performance in Carnegie Hall, the finale of our 18 concert 2023 tour, we are delighted to present our version of U2’s ‘Where The Streets Have No Name’. Recorded in stunning locations across the Emerald Isle from the Cliffs of Moher in Co. Clare to Grianán an Aileach in Co. Donegal, the film also features footage from performances in Dublin, Belfast, Limerick and Waterford. With a blend of symphonic Celtic music rooted in Irish and Ulster Scots traditions, this arrangement by Paul O’Brien weaves instruments and dance from both traditions in a multi-layered musical tapestry, reflecting the complex history and rich cultural heritage of Ireland.
The Cross Border Orchestra of Ireland, conducted by Greg Beardsell is widely regarded as world-class is a 140 member group of young musicians aged 14 to 24 from both Ireland and Northern Ireland. They are joined here by uileann piper Conal Duffy, pipe major Grahame Harris, Colmcille pipe band along with dancers from Dance Hall Academy school of Irish Dance and The Michelle Johnston School of Highland Dance.
The historic concert at Carnegie Hall, New York on March 17th will celebrate the orchestra’s achievement in promoting peace and unity and significantly will mark the 25th anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement. Tickets from www.carnegiehall.org
