Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant debuts new shows at Disney Springs

Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant has announced new entertainment and shows coming to Disney Springs.

A brand-new show, Rhythms of Raglan 2018, has just launched after months of rehearsals in Ireland.
Raglan Road Show Director, David Hayes, says it’s “an authentic cultural journey that’s both ‘lyrical and rollicking’ … it will take us from Ireland’s Ancient East to the most contemporary of Irish traditional musical content and ideas, all topped off with dance routines that punch and float in equal measure.”

Here are some facts about the new production from Raglan Road:

4 new shows throughout each evening, plus a new weekend Rollicking Raglan Brunch show
16 musicians (11 new and 5 returning musicians, including two Scots)
1 “absolutely cracking” new Raglan Road dance troupe with 8 new Irish dancers and one troupe veteran, many who have toured the world
16 new dance routines and 14 new songs
55 new pieces of musical content from songs and instrumentals to jigs and reels that show the journey of Irish music throughout the world from Trad to Celtic Rock to Funk, Latin, Bluegrass
A suite of stage shows telling the musical and visual stories of Ireland’s culture that spans thousands of years from ancient times to today
A brand-new tech department and 3 new engineers
2 video production designers whose vibrant set pieces include a black-and-white musical hero tableau through the ages that include Luke Kelly, Van Morrison, The Dubliners, Sinead O’Conner, U2 and many more

That is nearly 70 hours per week of live Raglan Road entertainment – 80 hours on the Grand Room stage, 80 on the patio, plus additional performances in the Raglan Room and Music Room. They also recently introduced a new late-night band, Strings and Things, and two additional new acts – TradGad and High Road – alongside the return of Reel Republic with additional new musicians.

You get all of this entertainment at Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant with no cover charge.
