A Celtic Christmas



Song and dance, both exuberant and reflective, to celebrate Christmas from the Celtic traditions of Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Isle of Man, Britanny and Cornwall with the typical harps, bagpipes and other instruments of each area. Most of the songs are in the original gaelic tongues (with translations in the notes). The singers include Colin MacAllister (Ireland), Arthur Cormack (Scotland), Emma Christian (Isle of Man), Julie Murphy (Wales) and Dave Townsend

A Celtic Christmas


"This wide-ranging Saydisc CD explores the winter ritual songs and traditions of the Celtic nations, drawing on material from Cornwall, Brittany, Ireland, Scotland and Wales and the Isle of Man. 'A Celtic Christimas' offers a refreshing alternative to the cliche ridden Yuletide fare that is normally foisted upon us at this time of year, and folk enthusiasts in particular should find a very worthwhile investment." Kevin Bryan

"Over an hour of attractively packaged, thoroughly researched and well-produced material" Folk Roots "Breaks new ground...the local traditions are rich in song for the season...[the singers] are another feather in A Celtic Christmas' cap" Rock 'n' Reel
