Through lively singing, music, and dancing, Fadó Fadó celebrates the joys and sorrows of a rural family in Ireland long ago.

Moving from the open air of the bog fields and harvest festivals to the warmth of the hearth-lit kitchen, this wonderful production shows how, in times past, almost every farmyard activity had a tune to it.  

Fadó Fadó weaves the work and the workers, the work-songs and the dances into a marvellous, fast-moving, thrilling piece of theatrical entertainment. 

The National Folk Theatre presents an authentic representation of Irish traditional culture in music, song and dance.  Everybody on stage has trained with the company since they were children and their experience shows.  This is an experience that will stay with you long after you leave the theatre!

★★★★★ ‘Siamsa Tire is a breath of fresh air - professional but soft and warm- we saw it on a night when the majority of the audience were German and French - it doesn't matter, language is no barrier, it's the feelings...’
