The Gaelic word 'Ragús' (pronounced rah-goose) means 'urge' or 'desire'. Exactly the feeling our brilliant company of musicians, singers and dancers continue to create on stage for audiences all over the world.
Inspired by the islanders of Inis Mór, Ragús is a show of Live, fast moving, traditional Irish music, song and dance. Evocative of times past, audiences feel the pulse of a rich and vibrant musical heritage and come away with a truly enjoyable and unique cultural experience.
You'll be moved by the haunting airs from the 'sean nós' traditions of Connemara and the Aran Islands as they are interwoven with lively tunes and rhythmic dancing to create a truly memorable experience.
This year sees Ragús celebrate it's 10th year in existence.
