Join Sligo county fiddler Oisin Mac Diarmada and bodhran player Tristan Rosenstock of the famed traditional Irish band, Téada, in celebrating the season at a very special Christmas performance! In addition to the lively music of this masterful young duo, the program of seasonal Irish culture features renowned Kerry singer/accordion player Seamus Begley, youthful dancer Brian Cunningham, Irish harpist Grainne Hambly, and uilleann piper Tommy Martin. An atmospheric journey through outstanding Irish music, stories, and solstice celebrations, the lively evening includes sing-alongs and the exhilarating rhythms of Brian's old-style step dancing, mingled with the contemporary artistry of the first-class musical lineup.

Oisin and Tristan play stylish, intelligent music, its sense of fun balanced by moments of subtle delicacy. Add to this Seamus' superb vocals and accordion playing, Tommy's uilleann piping, and Grainne's graceful harp, and the performance is nothing short of irresistible.

An accompanying CD, Irish Christmas in America, is also available.

Oisen will be teaching the workshop Stylistic Features of Irish Fiddling for Intermediate/Advanced Players here at the Freight from 2:00 to 4:00 pm.
