Step into Michelle's quirky, memorabilia-bedecked living room and let this colourful folk songstress, former Cherish the Ladies lead vocalist, charm and beguile you. Step Into My Parlour takes its audience back to Michelle's great grandmother’s era, with its 'delicious selection of parlour songs… Burke takes each song by the scruff of the neck and makes it her own' (The Irish Times)

‘Step Into My Parlour’, began life as a show at the 2012 Edinburgh Fringe Festival and has grown arms and legs in the course of subsequent stagings. The show featured at the prestigious Celtic Connections Festival in Glasgow in 2014 and again in 2015 with an array of special guests joining Michelle in the Parlour including John Spillane, Duke Special and Gino Lupari. This March Michelle brought the show to India where she opened the 11th International META festival in New Delhi.

This show is dementia-friendly.

Michelle Burke le James Ross: Step Into My Parlour

Léim isteach chuig parlús corr Michelle atá lán le hearraí cuimhneacháin agus lig don amhránaí bríomhar seo, a bhí ina príomhamhránaí le Cherish the Ladies tráth den saol, tú a mhealladh. Tógann Step Into My Parlour an lucht éisteachta siar go ré shin-seanmháthair Michelle, agus moladh go hard é as an 'delicious selection of parlour songs… Burke takes each song by the scruff of the neck and makes it her own' (The Irish Times)

Thosaigh ‘Step Into My Parlour’ amach mar sheó ar Fringe Festival Dhún Éideann 2012 agus tá fás ollmhór tagtha air mar a cuireadh ar an ardán é arís agus arís ó shin. Cuireadh ar siúl é ar an fhéile mór le rá, Celtic Connections, i nGlaschú in 2014 agus 2015 agus go leor aíonna speisialta ag dul isteach sa pharlús le Michelle, John Spillane, Duke Special agus Gino Lupari san áireamh. I mí an Mhárta, thóg Michelle an seó chun na hIndia mar a d’oscail sí an 11ú Féile Idirnáisiúnta META in New Delhi.

Tá an seó seo fóirsteanach do dhaoine a bhfuil néaltrú orthu.
