‘The Young Irelanders’ is an Irish traditional group where trad music, song & dance are given a contemporary treatment and we are interested in hearing from vocalists of all styles who are adaptable and interested in being part of this group’s journey.
There will be an emphasis on performance ability, youth, stage presence and ones ability to work and travel as part of a group. Ongoing commitment to the project will be important as plans are afoot to have the group/brand marketed into the future. You must be available to travel to the U.S. on February 16th 2016.
A competitive fee along with hotel accommodation, flights, ground transport (in the touring territory) and visas will be provided.
Interested candidates should:
send a cv or a profile of your musical experience & any publicity photos you may have
send an audio file(s) and links to video files featuring you performing (if they exist or an iPhone clip otherwise)
outline your age (as the word ‘young’ appears as part of the group name) and any touring experience you may have (previous experience is not essential however)
make yourself available for audition if necessary
let us know if you play an instrument(s). This is seen as a bonus.
have a current passport & not have been prohibited from entering North America in the past
The group, The Young Irelanders, first performed in Oct 2015 and are in the middle of a 100 date tour of North America. The group comprises some of the best young Irish traditional musicians in the world and is receiving a terrific reaction in the States. The group will be launched in Ireland during 2016.
