Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the standard Christmas time live performance that includes Cherish the Women introduced by Music on the Delaware is not going to happen this yr.
As a substitute, the group will provide a worldwide digital live performance, “Christmas in Eire,” that includes conventional Irish music with Christmas tunes.
The live performance can be streamed beginning at 8 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 19. Tickets are $20 every and out there at https://tinyurl.com/y4b7tuhm.
Due to the coronavirus the group was unable to tour its Celtic Christmas present in America this yr, so bandleader Joanie Madden assembled the group collectively in County Clare in Eire to file a socially distanced Christmas program that includes a 12-piece ensemble of musicians, singers and dancers.
For greater than 20 years, the group has put its stamp on music of the season releasing three critically acclaimed vacation albums, “On Christmas Evening,” “A Star within the East” and “Christmas in Eire.”
Within the “Christmas ins Eire” digital program, the group will sing traditional carols akin to “Angels we Have Heard on Excessive,” “Pleasure to the World,” “Hark the Herald Angel Sing,” “Mrs. Fogarty’s Christmas Cake,” “Ding Dong Merrily on Excessive” and “Silent Evening,” in preparations that spotlight the group’s Celtic instrumentation, harmonies and step dancing.
The group is made up of Madden on flute, whistle and concord vocals, Mary Coogan on guitar, Mirella Murray on accordion, Kathleen Boyle on piano and concord vocals and Nollaig Casey on fiddle. For this efficiency, the Waterboys’ and Lunasa’s Trevor Hutchinson can be on upright bass, Riverdance’s Jimmy Higgins on percussion, Seamus O’Flatharta on harp and vocals, and Kate Purcell, Don Stiffe and Bruce Foley on vocal. O’Flathara may even step dance, joined by five-time World Champion step dancer David Geaney.
