Candlelight Tribute to Taylor Swift
Terms of endearment for her have included: Tay, Swifty, T-Swift, T-Swizzle, and T-Sweezy. Taylor’s fanbase are invested in every album release, Easter egg, and hidden meaning. Last year, Irish fans were excited to discover she had been in Donegal and Belfast, and had recorded Red (Taylor’s Version) in The Emerald Isle. Miss Swift’s massive following is indicative of just how influential she is as an artist.
From her 2008 single, “Love Story”, to the feel-good “Shake It Off”, the “I Knew You Were Trouble” artist has had many hits this side of the pond. As you listen to the talented musicians, Castle String Quartet, play the recognisable tunes at this centuries-old venue, you’ll be able to reminisce over an impressive catalogue of music.
As for the venue, the city-centre’s O’Reilly Theatre will look even more stunning by soft candlelight at these performances. The space regularly hosts live performances of theatre, ballet, opera and other artistic disciplines, and will make for a fascinating backdrop to the quartet’s intimate 60-minute set.
The concerts have been met by countless 5-star reviews, and guests have called it “a creative, enchanting, and new concert experience.”
