Atlanta Celtic Christmas Concert This Weekend At Emory University

December 18-19, 2010, 8:00 P.M. & December 19, 2010, 2:30 P.M.
Schwartz Center for Performing Arts, Emory University

Pagan meets St. Patrick and the Celtic world meets Appalachia at the Atlanta Celtic Christmas Concert, produced by the W.B. Yeats Foundation at Emory University. Featured in this year’s performance, which will be filmed as a PBS Christmas special, is Moya Brennan, known as the “Queen of Celtic Song,” and a brilliant ensemble of traditional musicians from Ireland. Also joining the Celtic Christmas family are Grammy Award-winning banjo virtuoso Alison Brown, madcap string player and percussionist Joe Craven, and balladeer John Doyle in a program of non-stop delight.

In its eighteenth season, the Atlanta Celtic Christmas Concert is one of the most popular events of the Holiday Season in Atlanta. A family entertainment for audiences of all ages, there’s always something old and new in the Concert. Whether in the gentle lilt of a fiddle tune, the bird-like cry of a gorgeous tin whistle, the snapping rhythm of a Scottish strathspey, the buoyant energy of Irish step dancers, or the shimmering echo of a harp floating through the auditorium, people are inspired to seek their own spiritual renewal. Both a celebration and a reflection, the Concert has for many Atlantans become a fun-filled yet inspirational way of finding themselves once again at home with the true meaning of Christmas.
