Magical Strings 40th Annual Tacoma Celtic Yuletide Concert
Enter the timeless realm of Celtic Yuletide! Three generations of the Boulding family set the stage ablaze with the Tara Academy Irish Dancers, lively fiddling of Jocelyn Pettit (award-winning Canadian artist who will have recently returned from a European tour and studies in Scotland), soulful songs with brilliant Dublin guitarist Colm MacCarthaigh, powerful vocals and singalongs led by Prescott Breeden, and dynamic percussionist Matt Jerrell. Philip and Pams Celtic harp and hammered dulcimer sing mysteries from their most recent sojourns in Ireland, augmented by cello, violin, whistles, accordion and concertina. This festive gala of music, dance, storytelling, juggling, a colorful costumed processional and songs of the season brings warmth and joy into the heart of winter.
ABOUT MAGICAL STRINGS: Philip and Pam Boulding founded Magical Strings in 1978, the same year they began the Celtic Yuletide Concerts with their family. They have performed throughout the U.S., Canada, Ireland and Japan, toured and recorded with Dan Fogelberg, appeared on Garrison Keillors A Prairie Home Companion, and recorded 21 albums on four labels. Once called the Von Trapps of the Northwest by local media, their love of music is embraced by their five grown children and six grandchildren, most of whom return each year to join the family band for the Yuletide Concerts.
