In Ireland, the festival of Christmas has for centuries been celebrated by traditional music and song. The acclaimed ensemble Danú brings a taste of that traditional Irish Christmas with An Nollaig in Éirinn, a Celtic music celebration that warms the heart. Fiddle, flutes, button accordion, percussion, and the gorgeous voice of Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh pay homage to early Irish traditions such as The Laden Table, placing a candle in a window, and touring from house to house on St. Stephen’s Day. Adding another dimension to this beautiful program, Danú has also created a set of songs to be performed in each community with a local choir.
