Event

An Irish Christmas Celebration
Yes, Virginia, there ARE other ways to celebrate the end of the year besides standing in long lines at big-box stores, or sitting in traffic... for centuries now, the merry folks of The Emerald Isle have rung out the auld with story and song, never better preserved or presented than by this highly-respected group and their collaborator, the storyteller Máirtín de Cógáin.


With fiddle, guitar, drum, whistles, and voice, Legacy recalls generations of Irish holiday tradition in a manner entirely befitting this year and next. It's a special program they've worked up especially for the season -- start now to make your Merry Christmas last that much longer!


Máirtín de Cógáin is an entertainer of unending talent. A crowned All-Ireland Storytelling Champion twice over, a noted singer, a dancer, and a heart-beating bodhrán (Irish drum) player, Máirtín does a bit of acting on the side (his biggest part to date was in Ken Loach's Palm d'Or winning movie, The Wind That Shakes The Barley, where he also sings the title track.)


Legacy's Valerie Plested is one of the finest and most musically expressive talents to have emerged on the Southern Celtic music scene. Don Penzien's dexterous work on DADGAD guitar provides not only the solid, driving rhythms that are perceptive and sensitive accompaniments to songs and airs. It took a hurricane to unite this unique group (named Katrina) at a benefit event, and they became fast friends, now turned 'band'.
