Now in its 16th season, Irish Christmas in America brings together world-class musicians, singers and dancers in an intimate and engaging performance rich in history, humor, and boundless energy. Pensive ballads, lively instrumentals and thrilling Irish dance, plus evocative photographic images, create an enchanting start to the holiday season.
Produced by Oisín Mac Diarmada of the award-winning lrish group Téada, the show features TG4’s Traditional Singer of the Year, Séamus Begley, and the remarkable vocal talents of Sligo’s Niamh Farrell. With lively instrumental tunes on fiddle, flute, uilleann pipes and harp, and thrilling Irish old-style dancing by Samantha Harvey, this is a holiday celebration to remember.
This family-friendly performance offers a view into some of the rich historical traditions of the Emerald Isle. The show was originally conceived to share traditional, if sometimes unknown, seasonal Irish customs in a heartfelt demonstration of how music kept early Irish immigrants close to home as they made their way in the new world.
