Last night we saw the magic of Bobby McFerrin working ‘in the moment’ with the gorgeous dancer Máire Dee and an inspired group of musicians including Kate Ellis, Robbie Harris, Emer Mayock, Úna Ní Fhlannagáin, Nick Roth, John Sweeney and Francesco Turrisi. You really had to be there to appreciate this fantastic collaboration in making music ‘in the moment’. There’s another chance to experience this amazing musical event – there are still some tickets available for tonight’s performance when Bobby will be singing, dancing and playing with a new combination of artists including Cindy Cummings – Dancer; Kate Ellis – Cello; Robbie Harris – Bodhrán; JPTrio (Ted Kelly, Jos Kelly, Paddy Hazleton) – Banjo, Button Accordion, Cajón Kit; Emer Mayock – Irish Flute; Francesco Turrisi – Piano, Accordion, Percussion.

The quality and variety of entries made it extraordinarily difficult for our adjudicators – both from the Waltons World Masters Series and Bobby’s creative team in New York – to make their final selections for the Bobby McFerrin Meets Ireland events at the National Concert Hall on Wednesday & Thursday, 6 & 7 March, but we have them at last! Click here to read details of artists selected. We would like to thank all of the wonderful performing artists who applied to participate, and while we could only choose a very small number, it was a pleasure and privilege for our adjudicators to witness the quality and diversity of performers working in Ireland today.
We know that the musicians and dancers who applied to participate in the Waltons World Masters – Bobby McFerrin Meets Ireland events on March 6th and 7th at the National Concert Hall are impatient to hear whether or not they have been selected, but the sheer quality, quantity and variety of entries from all over Ireland have made it extraordinarily difficult for the adjudicators – both from the Waltons World Masters Series and Bobby’s creative team in New York – to narrow down the field and make their final decisions. For this reason, they have asked us to delay the announcement of performers until Monday, 11 February, rather than today.
Make someone smile this Valentine’s Day with tickets to the phenomenal Bobby McFerrin (of ‘Don’t Worry Be Happy’ fame).
