The Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts Brings Christmas Traditions to Life with Irish Christmas in America, December 9 at 8.00 pm
Irish Christmas in America, now in its 13th season, evokes the rich historical traditions of Ireland with popular Irish music, song, and dance in an engaging performance rich in history and humor, staged against a backdrop of stunning photographic imagery. Produced by Oisín Mac Diarmada of award-winning Irish group Téada (which appears at the Annenberg Center on March 17, 2018), and featuring special guest singer Niamh Farrell, a vocalist from County Sligo, long renowned for its rich music, and celebrated West Kerry singer Séamus Begley, the show brings traditional and often unknown Irish customs to American audiences. “One of the most heartfelt themes of Irish Christmas is emigration,” says Mac Diarmada. “Music was a way that people stayed close to home.”
