Hailing from historic County Waterford, the acclaimed Irish ensemble Danú celebrates a traditional Irish Christmas with An Nollaig in Éirinn. Celtic music lovers around the globe have been thrilled by the ensemble’s virtuoso players on fiddle, flutes, button accordion, percussion and the gorgeous voice of Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh. Winner of major awards from the BBC and Irish Music Magazine, Danú returns to the US for this glorious celebration of Christmas from their homeland. In Ireland, the festival of Christmas has for centuries been celebrated by traditional Irish music and song. There are many musical tributes that pay homage to early Irish traditions such as The Laden Table, placing a candle in a window, and touring from house to house on St. Stephen’s Day. Christmas in Ireland: An Nollaig in Éirinn is a Celtic music celebration that warms the heart.
