An Irish Christmas

An Irish Christmas brings just about everything to the table – joy, hope, laugh ter, friendship, celebration, of life through storytelling, music, song, and dance in a night that sparkles with life and a bit of ‘magic!’ Dancers dance through the generations over brooms, on half doors, around butter churns, into the world of mythology and out again. Songs spinning out of the mists and into the familiar Silent Night, Little Drummer Boy and Carol of the Bells, and superb music of the pipes, flutes, fiddles, button accordion and bodhráns are just the beginning of this great Irish night! You can be sure of a rip-roaring celebration of Christmas from the heart of glorious Ireland with a superb team of Irish traditional musicians, dancers from the Kerry Dance Troupe lead by Scott Doherty (Riverdance & Lord of the Dance), the Kerry Records voice squad, and Irish actor Sheelagh Cullen.

We will journey through Christmas in Ireland and celebrate the great tradition of butter making, chase the wren on St. Stephen’s day, draw down the half door for spectacular dance, enjoy superb music-making, singing of Christmas carols and great storytelling in an unforgettable Irish night. Irish folk theatre at its best! So come and refresh your spirit, dust off the cares of the world and dance home with a smile in your heart as this joyful night brings you to a wonderful Ireland that echoes so forcefully in millions of hearts throughout the world. You can be certain of a GREAT IRISH WELCOME!
