“A Mini Riverdance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2010

We attended Trad on the Prom at the urging of our tour director. The show was fantastic, especially the two young men who danced. They have a bright future in dance. Maira was outstanding on the Irish fiddle but I particularly enjoyed the Bohdrahn. Great way to spend an evening on Galway Bay.

“Amazing show”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2010

Our final night in Ireland was very well spent enjoying this marvelous show. The step dancers are extraordinary and the musicians are fabulous. It's a compact Riverdance, very accessible and very professional.

“One of the best nights of my life!! Ever!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2010

Me and several teaching colleagues were fortunate enough to get tickets to this fantastic show last week. Accompanied by a group of primary school children, we were given a personal mention in the introduction by the show's producer. We had heard great things about Trad on the Prom prior to visiting Galway, but what we heard and saw exceeded our expectations on so many levels. We witnessed a night of world class music and dancing from an amazingly talented family and guest performers. Chris Kelly added something special to the show by explaining the origin/history of many of the pieces of music and traditional Irish instruments played during the different songs. The guest vocalist was also fantastic and did a beautiful rendition of my new favourite song "Galway Girl". After the show the singers/dancers/musicians mingled with the audience and were more than happy to sign autographs for the children in our party. I would highly recommend this show to people of all ages and nationalities - it has to be seen to be believed!! Thank you to everyone involved in Trad on the Prom for making our trip to Galway so memorable - we'll be treasuring this night for a long to come.

“World Class Talent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2010

Finally got around to seeing this show during the week after many, many recommendations to do so. The professionalism and talent of both the musicians, singers and dancers was truly world class. The Irish dancers were amazing, I could've watched them all night especially the two young brothers who could give Michael Flatley a run for his money any day of the week. Highly recommend seeing this show to any age or nationality, I intend to see it again later in the summer with my young daughter who has recently taken up Irish dancing and would really enjoy seeing the dancers in action.
