Kick off the holiday season at the Walker Center with "Christmas with the Celts" on Friday, December 2, 2016.
This Christmas presentation is described as "ancient meets modern." You will hear unforgettable, heart-stirring Irish and Scottish Christmas carols that go back as far as the 12th century combined with modern drum loops, synth work and vocal pop sensibilities of today plus carols that everyone knows with Celtic instrumentation. "Christmas with the Celts" is a perfect blend of the old and new but with a very earthy, warm fireside feel. "Christmas with The Celts" also presents a message of hope in the face of hard economic times for many around the world.
You will hear recitations in the Scottish dialect. You will also hear something that has surprisingly been completely missed by other Irish music shows in spite of its important role in Celtic culture & Irish humor.
