Celebrate the Holiday Spirit with a live performance of Christmas with the Celts on December 6 at 7 PM USCB Center for the Arts
BEAUFORT Celebrate the holiday season and see LIVE the original national PBS show Christmas with The Celts at USCB Center for the Arts on Tuesday, December 6 at 7 pm. The first live performance of Christmas With The Celts was filmed in front of a sold-out audience at Nashville’s prestigious Ryman Auditorium. The successful Christmas show has aired on 222 PBS channels across the U.S., Canada and on the BBC in Ireland for three years.Christmas with the Celts: high-stepping spirited musical selections range from classic Irish reels that will have audiences clapping along to some ancient hymns and lively renditions of popular contemporary Christmas classics. Enjoy “Silent Night,” “Little Drummer Boy,” “Count Your Blessings,” “First Noel,” “I’m Dreaming Of A White Christmas” and John Lennon’s perennial favorite “Happy Christmas.” Ric Blair, founder of the Celts, stated, “I’m proud of my Irish/Scottish roots, but I’m equally proud of my American roots. Our music is kind of a hybrid that’s evolved between the two.”
The Celts’ lineup features founder Ric Blair on vocals, guitars, bodhran, and piano, Laura McGhee on vocals and Scottish Fiddle, plus an ensemble of world class musicians playing uilleann pipes, Irish whistles, drums, mandolin, banjo - plus always crowd pleasing Irish step dancers.
“FIRST THERE WAS RIVERDANCE, THEN CELTC WOMAN, AND NOW THE POPULAR PBS PLEDGE SHOW CHRISTMAS WITH THE CELTS WHICH IS TOURING ACROSS AMERICA” Kevin Crane, PBS
