Life After Limerick presents the story of Michigan natives, Jessie Nieves and Nic Gareiss, who in 2009 and 2011 respectively, attended The Irish World Academy at the University of Limerick, a conservatory-style school that is rapidly developing a reputation as one of the foremost institutions of traditional music and dance training in the world. Now, having both graduated from UL, Jessie with an MA in Irish Traditional Music Performance and Nic with an MA in Ethnochoreology, the pair have returned to Michigan eager to share their experiences with the traditional music community that first fostered and inspired them.

Life After Limerick, a 90-minute travelogue and concert style performance tells the story of the educational voyage of these two young musician/dancer/scholars as encountered through this remarkable institution. Through tunes, songs, and dance steps, Jessie and Nic share their experience of living in Ireland: the joys, occasional mishaps of acclimating to a new cultural environment, and ultimately, the realization of just how deep the roots connections between Ireland and North America run.
