The New Century’s performance ensemble is a collaboration between Irish traditional musicians, step dancers, and sean-nós dancers, which serves as a laboratory for creating new artistic work rooted in tradition, and reviving music and dance from printed collections. Born out of an Irish-American musical heritage that stretches as far back as the Revolutionary War, the New Century forges performances that shed light on the genius of traditional art, its beauty, and its unique ability to—as the great accordionist Joe Cooley said—bring people to their senses.
