Christmas With The Celts. First there was Riverdance, then Celtic Woman – and now the popular PBS Pledge show Christmas with The Celts, which is touring across the United States. The Celts mix lively traditional Irish music and instrumentation with American pop music and their own originals. The Celts lineup stars Ric Blair on vocals, guitar, bodhran and piano, along with the lovely Eimear Arkins from County Clare, Ireland on vocal and fiddle, complemented by an array of top-flight musicians on uilleann pipes, Irish whistles, fiddle, bodhran, banjo, five-string bass, drums -- and of course, the energetic and crowd pleasing Irish dancers. A beautiful holiday celebration that the whole family can enjoy!
