Celebrate Christmas with a priceless piece of Irish culture

by on November 21, 2011

Tomáseen Foley’s A Celtic Christmas recreates the joy and innocence of a night before Christmas in a farmhouse in the remote parish of Teampall an Ghleanntain in the west of Ireland. On November 26 at 7:30pm, watch as the neighbours gather around the fire to grace the long wintry night with the laughter of their stories, the joy of their music, and the dances they always said they were much too old for.

This year, Tomáseen Foley’s A Celtic Christmas features Marcus Donnelly from Co. Galway, one of the most exhilarating, truly creative Irish dancers performing today. Internationally acclaimed master of the steel-string guitar William Coulter joins in, along with vocalist and multi-instrumentalist (and world-champion level Irish dancer) Marianne Knight from Co. Mayo, and Brian Bigley (also a world-champion level Irish dancer) on uilleann pipes, whistles and flute.

“…it’s such a joy to experience Tomáseen Foley’s A Celtic Christmas, a unique blend of master story-telling, traditional music and dance that captures the heart and soul of Ireland in an evening of nostalgic holiday memories as only the Irish can share.” – The Times-Standard

Tickets for Tom
áseen Foley’s A Celtic Christmas are available at the Fredericton Playhouse box office 1-866-884-5800, or online at www.theplayhouse.ca.
