Featuring performances by some of the greatest dancers of our age, this program charts the evolution of Irish dance, from its early Celtic origins to its peasant dance roots to its mix with Caribbean and African slave cultures. Hosted by Irish dance phenom Morgan Bullock, the program reveals how this dance is a story of religious influence, cultural fusion, mass migration, and revolution.

There’s only one star of the show at Harnan’s and that’s Junior Harnan himself. Operating the pub like his father and grandfather did before him, Junior offers a space for the community to exchange stories and celebrate traditional Irish music. Harnan’s is in safe hands as the next generation have already taken to the taps ensuring the continuation of a longstanding family tradition.
