Celtic Yuletide

Dec. 6 @ 7 p.m. | $38

Memorial Hall. Michael Londra, the Irish singer best known as the voice of Riverdance on Broadway and for his own PBS special “Beyond Celtic”, presents an evening of “Christmas from Ireland” told in song, dance and the classic stories of his youth. You will hear traditional, heartwarming Irish carols like Winter , Fire and Snow and Gaelic versions of Christmas songs you will love such as “Oiche Ciuin” (Silent Night) and The Wexford Carol written in his home town. The evening will also feature Celtic songs of a new Ireland including Michael’s popular carol “Beyond the Star” recorded and performed by choirs worldwide. Michael sings many carols more familiar to international audiences like O Come Emmanuel and The First Noel but sung in a Celtic more traditional style by one the “greatest Irish singers of our time”.
Irish musicians join Michael onstage to perform age-old Celtic airs on the haunting uilleann pipes, fiddle, low whistles and the national drum of Ireland, the bodhran.. They thrill the audience with their own frenetic traditional jigs and reels.  The musicians are some of the most popular traditional in the US, playing festivals and concerts throughout the year.
