"The Awakening" by Celtic Cry

By Celtic Cry


Who are Celtic Cry?
We began in 2010 with our successful show 'Celtic Cry' which ran for three weeks in the Watergate Theatre, Kilkenny. Headed by songwriter Martin Brennan, who teamed up with musical director John Travers and a host of international musicians. Bringing to life this show with a unique, distinct take on a familiar sound. We hope to share with as many people as possible.

What is 'The Awakening'?
This year we bring you 'The Awakening' which explores the story of the history of Ireland through a musical retelling of its myths & legends. Beginning from the arrival of the Fír Bolg (The Gaels) to the 'Isle of Destiny' the show dramatises Ireland's history with music, songs and stories. It brings to life the old legends such as the land of Tír na nÓg, Queen Maebh, Cú Chulainn, the mighty Fianna warriors and Brian Boru's epic battle with the Vikings at the Battle of Clontarf, and many more you may or may not have heard before.

'The Awakening' will premier at The Watergate Theatre, Kilkenny in July 2013. Thereafter we hope to bring the show to other venues, and to produce an album for people to enjoy at home and share with friends and family around the world.

Why use crowd-funding?
This time we will be asking for your help through crowd funding because we wish to have a top-notch show ready in time for The Gathering 2013, which means we need to speed up the process ever so slightly to get the show up and running.

It is also our intention to bring this show off the shores of Ireland. We are planning gigs in Europe, the US and South America.
