Christmas with the Celts - Ancient Irish Carols and Celtic Dance
Thursday, December 8, 2022
Show founder, Grammy nominated songwriter, and film score composer Ric Blair says, “You can't listen to Celtic music and not be happy. Christmas with the Celts isn’t just a concert; it is a spiritual experience of music and dance uniting communities. It’s about bringing young and old together. It is a music of the people. I think that is why this unique melding of modern Christmas hits and organic Celtic instrumentation continues to resonate and grow in popularity every year with audiences.”
Celebrating 12 years of successful national touring, Christmas with the Celts performs a wonderful combination of ancient Irish Christmas carols, lively Irish dance, and contemporary songs with Irish instrumentation. High-stepping, spirited music will have you clapping to Irish versions of Santa Claus is Coming to Town, Mariah Carey's All I Want for Christmas, John Lennon's Happy Christmas and more. An Irish Christmas would not be complete without the unpredictable craic (jokes) and banter that occur between band members, the audience, and the fiery dancers. The Celts pack concert halls around the world including the Grand Ole Opry and NYC's Lincoln Center. As a special highlight, a local school choir will sing. Embrace the holiday spirit that will fill the auditorium and carry the spirit home!
