A high energy Celtic dance and gospel production is coming soon to the Nazarene Church in Rimbey.

The Sky family’s Celtic Revival which includes rollicking Celtic fiddle tunes and Riverdance style Irish dancing combined with humorous skits will be held Oct. 27 at 7 p.m. and Oct. 28 at 10:30 a.m. at the church.

The show, which consists of two hour-long sets combining fiddle music with songs rich in harmonies, is on tour throughout the United States and Canada.

As well as music and dance each set is full of hilarious stories, skits and inspirational testimonies.

“All members of the family perform on several instruments and all contribute to the rich vocal harmonies and lively dance. It’s family entertainment at its best,” said Rimbey resident Glenis Shaw. “Really funny and inspiring are two adjectives that would fittingly describe their high energy production, Celtic Revival.”

The Sky family consists of the dad, Tom who plays lead guitar, fiddle and piano, his sons Seth, on bass; Joel on lead fiddle, flute and saxophone and Gabe as lead dancer, guitar and drums and his daughter Miriam who plays piano and dances a fine reel.

The family is from the north shore of Prince Edward island. The children were home schooled and on long winter nights perfected their musical skills around the fire.

The dance, which was added to the show at a later date, has become the showpiece of the performance.

“It is great fun for the whole family. For anyone interested in Celtic family entertainment it is a show not to miss,” said Shaw.

A free will offering will be taken at the church during the performance.
