After two past sold-out performances, Christmas with The Celts returns with a brand new show for 2017 – with real falling snow on stage!  The popular PBS Pledge show features a mix of lively traditional Irish music and instrumentation with American pop music and their own originals along with ancient Irish and Scottish carols and traditional Christmas favorites.  This year’s performances includes Celtic rock versions of “Jingle Bells,” “Run, Run Rudolph” and “Santa Claus is Coming to Town”.  The Celts lineup stars, Ric Blair on vocal-guitar-bodhran & piano along with female lead singer and all Ireland champion fiddler and Irish dancer, Eimear Arkins.  Rick and Eimear will be complemented by an array of top-flight musicians on uilleann pipes, Irish whistles, fiddle, bodhran, banjo, five-string bass, drums and of course, the crowd-pleasing Irish dancers.  Christmas with The Celts isn’t just a concert; it is a celebration of the holiday spirit, people, community and common connections. You can’t listen to Celtic-flavored music and not be happy!
