TURNING OF THE YEAR!
A Celtic Holiday Extravaganza with:
John Whelan, Low Lily & Katie McNally
Tickets: $28 General Admission / $26 Advance / $45 Gold Circle
Location: The Addy (3rd Fl. at Proctors)
Seven time All-Ireland Accordion Champion & Narada recording artist JOHN WHELAN teams up with American roots band LOW LILY (Liz Simmons, vocals & guitar & Lissa Schneckenburger, vocals & fiddle); and KATIE McNALLY (Scottish fiddle), for a spectacular holiday mini-fest!
Featuring traditional and original music from Ireland, Scotland and America, it’s a diverse and energetic show to usher in the holiday season with a bang. Alongside uptempo jigs and reels will be lesser-known Christmas carols and wintry classics: two fiddles, accordion, guitars, mandolin, double bass and lush, layered vocals. It’s an evening defined by the joyously boisterous personality of Johnny Whelan, and the purely wonderful energy of the players.
This exclusive show brings the generations together for a fresh new take on roots music from both sides of the pond, in a distinctly Celtic voice.
We’re thrilled to welcome back award-winning musician John Whelan - original Riverdance cast member and legendary player - in this all-star ensemble!
“An almost hypnotic center to the music suggested a sense of its age-old roots...a memorable musical celebration”
