Produced by Sligo fiddler Oisin Mac Diarmada, the hugely popular Irish Christmas in America show features top Irish music, song, and dance in an engaging performance rich in humor and boundless energy. The tour features special guest singer Caitriona Sherlock, a stunning addition to this year's show showcasing the very best of new Irish female vocal talent.
This family-friendly performance features lively instrumental tunes on fiddle, flute, uillean 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.
The holiday show was first conceived in 2005 with past tours featuring such stellar guest vocalists as Niamh Farrell, Seamus and Meabh Begley, Teresa Horgan, Lumiere (Pauline Scanlon & Eilis Kennedy), Karan Casey, Cara Dillon, Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh, Cathie Ryan, and Michael Londra. Mac Diarmada enthuses about the program as a way to bring traditional and often unknown Irish customs to the States. "One of the most heartfelt themes of Irish Christmas is emigration," says Mac Diarmada. "Music was a way that people stayed close to home."
This is a General Admission seated show held in the theater of CSPS Hall. Doors will open one hour before showtime.
