TURNING OF THE YEAR
Saturday, December 2, 2017, 7:30 pm

Celtic Holiday extravaganza with John Whelan, Low Lily & Katie McNally. Traditional Irish accordion, Scottish fiddling, and Americana String Band

"An almost hypnotic center to the music suggested a sense of its age-old roots...a memorable musical celebration" PRESS HERALD (Portland, Maine)

7X All-Ireland Accordion Champion John Whelan teams up with American Roots band Low Lily [Liz Simmons (vocals, guitar) Flynn Cohen (vocals, guitar, mandolin), Lissa Schneckenburger (vocals, fiddle) & Corey DiMario (double bass)]; and Scottish-style fiddler Katie McNally for a spectacular holiday mini-fest!

Featuring traditional and original music from Ireland, Scotland and America, it's a diverse and energetic show to usher in the holiday season with a bang. Alongside uptempo jigs and reels will be lesser-known Christmas carols and wintry classics: two fiddles, accordion, guitars, mandolin, double bass and lush, layered vocals!

This exclusive show brings the generations together for a fresh new take on Roots music from both sides of the pond.

We're thrilled to welcome back award-winning musician John Whelan - original Riverdance cast member and legendary player - and his very talented friends!
