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.

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.
