Riverdance Members Seek Your Support in Kickstarter Campaign

0e7240ad94e771e966749643d2a1c881_originalAfter several very successful appearances at the St. Patrick’s Day Festival in Munich and events around Germany, former Riverdance stars Paula Goulding and Shane McAvinchey are seeking support to bring their show ‘Journey To Ireland’ to Internationale Kulturboerse, the international culture trade show taking place in Freiburg this January.

‘Journey to Ireland’ is an atmospheric and intimate show which takes visitors on an exciting journey through the Irish dance and music culture of the last centuries. The audience is transported to a 19th-century Irish home where a session is taking place, then carried through time to a modern sophisticated Ireland. Full of soulful ballads, slow melodies, cheerful songs and dance tunes that will captivate audiences.

Support Irish Culture on an International Stage

The producers are aiming to raise €4,765 by January 7th 2016 via their Kickstarter campaign. We’re sure all support is greatly appreciated, large or small.

Find out more about the show and the rewards for supporters here.
