Deeply rooted in Irish traditional music, TREEHOUSE is a unique big band music and puppetry performance for young audiences that is sure to have everyone singing along. With mesmerising original music and songs by some of Ireland’s finest musicians and performers, you can look forward to a wonderfully interactive show that will have audiences of all ages hooked.

Musical Director Thomas Johnston (whistles and song) is joined by a stellar lineup of Stephen Markham (piano), Áine McGeeney (fiddle and vocals), Seán O”Meara (guitar), Colm Phelan (percussion), and Tommy Baker (puppeteer). Directed by Emma Fisher.

Ceol Connected has embarked on an exciting pilot initiative in 2020 in response to the challenges presented by Covid-19.  TREEHOUSE 360° is an immersive gig theatre experience for families that harnesses the power of digital technology, creativity, music production, and high quality artistic engagement.

Led by Ceol Connected in partnership with Riverbank Arts Centre and VR Ireland, alongside support from the Arts Council and Dublin City University’s ANAM Festival, we are excited to bring a immersive gig theatre experience to young audiences in 2021. Stay tuned! 

Our new TREEHOUSE album for young (and not so young) listeners is on its way in Spring 2021, and we’re so excited to share it with you all! 

What’s more, this will be an album like no other (or at least, few others) as it will be launched as an immersive gig theatre experience where you can experience the music and songs in 360°!

Featuring a high calibre lineup of musicians including Áine McGeeney (fiddle/vocals), Seán O’Meara (guitar/vocals), Colm Phelan (percussion), Thomas Johnston (whistles/vocals), Stephen Markham (keys/sound design).
