About Bill Whelan

An in-demand producer (U2, Patrick Street) and keyboardist during the 1980s and early '90s, Bill Whelan launched his solo career in the mid-'90s as the composer of 1995's Riverdance, an experimental fusion of traditional Irish music. With over 80 dancers attached to the revue, Riverdance toured America -- appearing in several sold-out shows at Radio City Music Hall in New York -- during 1995 as well as Europe and Australia. ~ John Bush
