The Celtic Society of the Monterey Bay is pleased to present Irish Christmas in America in concert again this year. They will be performing on Thursday, December 19, at 7:30 p.m., at the Kuumbwa Jazz Center, 320 Cedar St # 2, Santa Cruz. This will be the 13th year that Irish Christmas in America has performed locally, and it has become a holiday tradition for many families. The concert sells-out every year, so advance tickets or reservations are highly recommended.
Celebrating its 15th year, the hugely popular holiday show Irish Christmas in America brings a fascinating performance of music, song, dance and stories of seasonal Irish traditions. Produced by Sligo fiddler Oisín Mac Diarmada, the long running show features top Irish music, song and dance in an engaging performance rich in humor and boundless energy.
The 2019 tour features special guest singer Niamh Farrell, a Sligo vocalist who has toured with UK singer/songwriting star David Gray. Niamh teams up with legendary West Kerry singer Séamus Begley, famous for his charming wit and stunning voice.
The family-friendly performance features lively instrumental tunes on fiddle, flute, uilleann pipes and harp, along with thrilling Irish old-style dancing from Samantha Harvey. In addition, evocative photographic images provide a backdrop to some of the rich historical traditions of Ireland.
Take a memorable glimpse into the enchanting spirit of Christmas, as the finest traditional artists from Ireland, bring you on a fun-filled start to the holiday season of 2019.
