The show coincides with the event of the same name taking place this year in Ireland to gather Irish diaspora from around the world to celebrate their heritage and culture. As well as traditional Irish music, the show also features more contemporary pieces from the popular and movie genres, all with Irish connections.

The Celtic Crusaders will this year work with the design team of Eoin O'Keeffe, Remco Groenewegen, and Jon Bilby. As well as competing in the domestic circuit run by the IMBA, Celtic Crusaders also travel to Kerkrade, Netherlands in July to take part in the World Music Contest.
