Sean-Nόs Dance & Storytelling

Irish World Heritage Centre


1 Irish Town Way, Cheetham Hill, Manchester, M8 0AE

A creative collaboration between the Irish Diaspora Foundation, the local branch of the organisation for traditional Irish music, Comhaltas na Breataine  (St Wilfrid’s) and Tura Aratura, this free showcase of sean-nόs and music provides a fabulous opportunity to access a vibrant and popular Irish cultural form and tradition with multiple resonances. Sean-nόs singing has long addressed Irish migration and sean nos dance, in its most popular and democratic expression, box and barrel dancing, opens new spaces and publics to traditional Irish music and dance.
