Christmas Celtic Sojourn: Silent Night & reels

Christmas Celtic Sojourn has become a holiday tradition in Boston. Brian O'Donovan, host of the long running Celtic Soujourn radio show, invites an ever changing cast of Celtic singers, players and dancers to share the holiday celebration with music each year. In 2006, they made a dvd from the show as well as an audio recording.

This is a clip from that taping, with the harmonies of Navan on Silent Night to begin, and then the night turns anything but silent as a stellar group of players including members of the Mulcahy family, along with Paddy League and Shannon Heaton, play for dancers led by Kieran Jordan.

This year's series of live concerts begins December 13th and features Alasdair Fraser, Solas, and Aoife O'Donovan.
Fine music live Celtic music coming to Boston January 11th and 12th at The Boston Celtic Music Festival,, as well.
