An Irish Christmas in America

If you attended the Irish Christmas in America show in 2005, you received a special treat. You heard great traditional Irish music by the group Teada and special guests Tommy Martin (uilleann pipes), Grainne Hambly (harp), Cathie Ryan (vocals), and local Irish dancers Kari Barton and Kristen Donnelly. Now you have an opportunity to see the show again, but now the show is better than ever! Teada will still be performing with Tommy and Grainne. On vocals will be Danu’s Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh, one of Ireland’s leading female vocalists. Dancing this year will be Abbey Magill and Sienna Hickey, championship level Irish dancers. You really do not want to miss this great opportunity to experience ancient Irish traditions with the contemporary artistry of some of Ireland’s finest performers. This show will bring the spirit of Christmas on a distinctively Irish journey. The show last year was performed in front of numerous sold-out audiences on the East coast.
Irish Christmas in America is presented by Living Traditions Presentations and will take place on Sunday, December 2, 2007 at 8:00pm at The Orpheum Theater in downtown Flagstaff. Tickets are $25 general admission. There is a $2 discount to members of NACHS, FFOTM, NAU/CCC Faculty and Staff, and Seniors. Discounted tickets are ONLY available at Cedar Music and Jitters Coffee. Student and Child tickets are $15. Tickets are also available at Animas Trading, Rainbow’s End, The Orpheum Box Office and This event is great for the whole family to attend as a special Christmas outing. For more information, email or call 928-600-1365.

Jim Malcolm review

Thanks to everyone who attended the presentation of Jim Malcolm November 8! It was a wonderful show and I was glad to have a full house for Jim. He was very happy to be back in front of a Flagstaff audience. I enjoyed all of the concert, especially the stories that Jim told, and of course the songs he sang. The little dancing man was quite the show stealer. Hopefully I'll see you all at my next show, An Irish Christmas in America, December 2, 2007.

Jim Malcolm in Concert November 8, 2007

Living Traditions Presentations is proud to announce its upcoming concert, featuring singer-songwriter Jim Malcolm. Jim will be performing Thursday, November 8, 2007 at 8:00pm in the Zane Grey Ballroom at the Hotel Weatherford.
Jim is probably best-known as the lead singer of the popular Scottish band, the Old Blind Dogs. He was their singer for seven years, retiring in August 2006. He is equally known in Scotland as a singer-songwriter and guitar/harmonica player. In 2004 , Jim won the Songwriter of the Year award at the Scots Traditional Music Awards. He has been dubbed “the new male voice of Scotland,” being on of the leading songwriters in the traditional idiom. He is also a leading exponent of simultaneous guitar and harmonica, “displaying more talent than many who have made their living from harmonica alone.” If you see Jim Malcolm perform, you can expect to hear traditional songs and ballads, his own compositions, and compelling stories, told both through singing and on their own. He is also a fine interpreter of material by Robert Burns, able to sing comfortably in Scots vernacular. “Given the right song, Jim Malcolm will just melt you in your seat.” – The Scotsman.
The concert is taking place in a intimate venue, so tickets are limited. Tickets are only available through Kari Barton, president of Living Traditions Presentations. For tickets, please email or call 928-600-1365. Tickets are $22 with a $2 discount to members of NACHS and FFOTM. Students and Children are $12.
