The hugely popular “Irish Christmas in America” show, now in its fourteenth season, features top Irish music, song, and dance in an engaging performance rich in history, humor, and boundless energy. Produced by Oisín Mac Diarmada of the award-winning Irish group Téada, the 2018 tour brings back the amazing Séamus Begley (Irish broadcasting company TG4’s “Traditional Singer of the Year”), along with the immense vocal talents of Sligo’s Niamh Farrell.
This family-friendly performance features stirring Irish ballads, lively instrumental tunes, and thrilling Irish dancing, while evocative photographic images provide a backdrop to some of the rich historical traditions. 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 2018.
This holiday show was first conceived in 2005, with past tours featuring such stellar guest vocalists as Séamus Begley, Teresa Horgan, Méabh Begley, the duo Lumiere, Karan Casey, Cara Dillon, Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh, Cathie Ryan, and Michael Londra. Mac Diarmada raves about the program as a way to bring traditional and often unknown Irish customs to the United 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.”
