Spice up the holiday season with the sensational Celts as they perform an upbeat holiday show that mixes lively Irish music and instrumentation with American pop, original tunes, and ancient Irish and Scottish carols and Christmas favorites. The Celts´ founder, Ric Blair, plays vocal-guitar-bodhran and piano along with female lead singer and Ireland´s champion fiddler and Irish dancer, Eimear Arkins. Rick and Eimear are joined by an array of top-flight musicians on uilleann pipes, Irish whistles, fiddle, bodhran, banjo, five-string bass, drums and of course, the crowd-pleasing Irish dancers. A feast for the eyes and ears, and more than just a concert, the Celts bring a celebration of the holiday spirit!
