A SOUTHERN CELTIC CHRISTMAS is a unique holiday program that brings together some of the leading artists in Irish and traditional Appalachian music to create a fun-filled, moving and profoundly meaningful celebration of the holiday season. The program, which grew out of a 20 year holiday concert tradition at Emory University, celebrates through music, dance, poetry, song and story the high spirits and mystical beauty of the Christmas traditions of the Celtic lands and their connections with similar traditions of the American South. A SOUTHERN CELTIC CHRISTMAS features a cast of world-class artists including three Grammy-winners: Moya Brennan, bluegrass and Celtic banjo virtuoso Alison Brown and Riverdance composer Bill Whelan with a stunning choral setting of a 7th century Irish prayer-poem. Appearances by Joe Craven, John Doyle, Rising Appalachia, Buddy O'Reilly Band, Rosin Sisters, Kelly Stewart Brzozowski, the Atlanta Irish Dance Troupe and more round out the program which is hosted by noted Yeats scholar and director, Irish tenor and storyteller James Flannery.
