      Irish Christmas In America

      "The hugely popular Irish Christmas in America show, now in its 9th season, features top Irish music, song and dance in an engaging performance rich in history, humour and boundless energy. Produced by Oisín Mac Diarmada of award-winning lrish group Téada, the 2013 tour brings back the amazing Sony-recording vocal group Lumiere (Pauline Scanlon, Eilis Kennedy, Donogh Hennessy), who proved such a big hit on the 2011 tour. Séamus Begley, 2013 TG4 Traditional Singer of the Year, once again rejoins the tour with his charming wit and stunning vocal prowess. This family-friendly performance features evocatively-sung Irish ballads, lively instrumental tunes and thrilling Irish dancing, while evocative photographic images provide a backdrop to some of the rich historical traditions. Take a memorable glimpse into the enchanting spirit of Christmas, as the finest traditional artists from Ireland bring you on a fun-filled start to the holiday season of 2013. The holiday show was first conceived in 2005 with past tours featuring such stellar guest vocalists as Séamus Begley, Lumiere, Karan Casey, Cara Dillon, Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh, Cathie Ryan and Michael Londra. Mac Diarmada enthuses about the program as a way to bring traditional and often unknown Irish customs to the States. "One of the most heartfelt themes of Irish Christmas is emigration," says Mac Diarmada. "Music was a way that people stayed close to home." A sparkling tradition among holiday events, Irish Christmas in America is a special show to see this season." (www.irishchristmasinamerica.com).
