THE IRISH ROVER SHOW
Ryan Ireland is fast becoming one of the most sought after performers in the northwest and his new Irish tribute night THE IRISH ROVER SHOW is a fantastic evening of entertainment.
First staged in march 2018 to celebrate St Patrick’s day, Ryan has continued to redevelop the show and the 2019 version is even more spectacular.
The show not only showcases Ryan’s fantastic vocal talents, but also his acting ability and characterization, as he delivers each of the songs in a unique style, telling his audiences the story of the lyrics, not just singing them.
Ryan has a bar onstage with him plus props such as various caps and hats, sweeping brush, pints of Guinness, glasses of Whiskey etc on stage with him, and he changes jackets/waistcoats etc too throughout the performance to give the whole theatrical feel, so the show is as visual as it is musical.

- THEATRICAL VERSION –
The full show (2 x 55 mins) where Ryan takes the audience on a musical journey around Ireland, introducing songs from all the various counties and towns, complete with great one liners, acting out stories and tipping his hat (literally, as he has a few flat caps onstage) to great moments of Irish history.
