Christmas with the Celts returns to The Ridgefield Playhouse Dec. 20
After sold-out performances for the past three seasons, Christmas with the Celts returns to The Ridgefield Playhouse on Friday, Dec. 20, at 8 p.m., part of the Holiday Series, Pepsi Rock Series powered by Xfinity, and Ridgefield Magazine World Music Series.
Featuring the Ashurst Irish Dancers and The Boys & Girls Club Of Ridgefield Chorus, this holiday show is a mix of lively traditional Irish music and instrumentation with American pop music and the Celts’ own originals, along with ancient Irish and Scottish carols and traditional Christmas favorites.
The Celts lineup stars Ric Blair on vocal-guitar-bodhran and piano, along with female lead singer and all Ireland champion fiddler and Irish dancer, Eimear Arkins. Ric and Eimear will be complemented by an array of top-flight musicians on uilleann pipes, Irish whistles, fiddle, bodhran, banjo, five-string bass, and drums.
