The Young Irelanders

Presented by Portsmouth Community Concerts

The Young Irelanders is comprised of eight sensational performers who have Irish traditional music, song & dance running through their veins. Although still in their20’s and 30’s, these performers have achieved more than most people would aspire to in a lifetime. They have performed for Presidents of Ireland, US Presidents, the Queen of England, the President of China, Prince Albert of Monaco, Empress Michiko of Japan, and have performed at Radio City Music Hall, the Great Hall of the People in China, the Kremlin State Palace in Moscow, the US Capitol Building, the Fox Theatre in Detroit and the Pantages Theatre in L.A.

The Young Irelanders was formed not only to merge the significant creative ideas and talents of a select group of young Irish performers, unique amongst their peers, but also in the hope that given their combined youthfulness and ability would act as a catalyst in attracting more young people to the world of traditional Irish music. The group also toured as lead performers with Riverdance and Michael Flatley’s Lord of the Dance, been soloists on PBS specials, shared the stage with Bono, and have recorded with Ronnie Wood (Rolling Stones). The Young Irelanders were also chosen by Sting to perform for his exclusive private parties.

The sound the band creates is best described as eclectic, where traditional Irish music, Celtic music, folk music, world music, jazz music, country music and popular music all come together to give rise to a very unique and multi-faceted sound.

Chrystal Williams

Presented by Portsmouth Community Concerts

Mezzo-soprano Chrystal E. Williams has been described by leading critics as “strong and so assured”, “lithely negotiating the coloratura demands before descending into a robust low register”, and “poised, polished, in complete command of the vocal calisthenics”. Of her recent debut with the Sarasota Opera performing the role of Rosina in Il Barbiere di Sivigliam, critics cited, “the young mezzo-soprano possesses a creamy instrument with fine flexibility, throwing off a confident ‘Una voce poco fa’.”
