Sionnach Rua’s Great Irish Song Book is an authentic music and story catalogue from Irish born and raised frontman, Gallie. Interwoven with rich stories from Gallie’s Irish upbringing, with tales of Irish traditions and histories, audiences will be transported back to a lively session in a celebration of Celtic music with songs ranging from Planxty to Van Morrison to the Dubliners. This stage show will make you feel like you are visiting a lively “session” in an Irish bar without having to travel to Dingle. An assured crowd pleaser.
