SPIRIT has drawn critical acclaim from various tastemakers. Billboard wrote, "Amos Lee is ready to take his fans on a journey down to Memphis for a little bit of old school soul." Huffington Post initially premiered "Vaporize," while American Songwriter debuted the title track and claimed, "The soulful piano ballad adopts the perspective of the anonymous street singer, who, as Lee imagines him, plays music to 'feel the spirit.'" "Till You Come Back Through" debuted on Relix who wrote, "It draws on a range of sounds that have influenced him." Lee also performed a stunning three-song set on CBS Saturday last weekend. Watch "Vaporize," "Till You Come Back Through" and "Walls."

Amos Lee continues to excite fans worldwide. His most recent album, Mountains Of Sorrow, Rivers Of Song, earned acclaim from The New York Times, Entertainment Weekly, Paste, and More. Previous offering, Mission Bell, took #1 on the Billboard Top 200. Along the way, he has perform on late night television shows Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!, Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, and the Late Show with David Letterman.  In addition to being musical guest for The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Tavis Smiley on PBS.

Moya Doherty is proud to announce that Riverdance - The 20th Anniversary World Tour, back by popular demand, will play a strictly limited engagement at the Sandler Center for the Performing Arts on Wednesday, April 26 and Thursday April 27 at 7:30 p.m.

Celebrating an extraordinary milestone for an incredible show, The Edinburgh Evening News raves about Riverdance - The 20th Anniversary World Tour, "As for the flaws? Well, there simply aren't any. Here's to another 20 years!"

Riverdance - The 20th Anniversary World Tour is composed by Bill Whelan, produced by Moya Doherty and directed by John McColgan. Riverdance - The 20th Anniversary World Tour will feature new costumes, new lighting, new projections and the addition of a brand new number, "Anna Livia," featuring the female members of the Irish dance troupe in an a cappella hard-shoe number.

"The success of Riverdance across the whole world has gone beyond our wildest dreams," said producer Moya Doherty. "The fact that the show continues to draw and excite audiences is a tribute to every dancer, singer, musician, staff and crew member who have dedicated themselves to the show. This 20th Anniversary Tour is a thank-you to our audiences and a celebration of what has been an incredible journey across two decades."

Riverdance - The 20th Anniversary World Tour is an innovative and exciting blend of dance, music and song. Drawing on Irish traditions, the combined talents of the performers propel Irish dancing and music into the present day, capturing the imagination of audiences across all ages and cultures. Riverdance - The 20th Anniversary World Tour has set design by Robert Ballagh, lighting design by John Comiskey, costume design by Joan Bergin and sound design by Michael O'Gorman.

For over 20 years, nothing has carried the energy, the sensuality and the spectacle of Riverdance. Riverdance began its journey as the interval act in the 1994 Eurovision Song Contest, produced for television by Moya Doherty. This electrifying and innovative seven-minute dance piece was then developed into a full-length stage show by Producer Moya Doherty, Composer Bill Whelan and Director John McColgan.
