A Celtic Christmas Sojourn - 2015-12-20 - Boston, MA

A Christmas Celtic Sojourn
December 20, 2015
live at the Cutler Majestic Theater
Boston, Massachusetts USA

(Broadcast Date December 24, 2016)
Pre-FM Broadcast Recording (WGBH), excellent quality
Available in both Lossless (FLAC) and mp3 (320kbps) versions

Here's another Christmas-related show. This one a bit different for this blog, as this is a Celtic Christmas Show from a 2015 radio broadcast performance from Boston, featuring vocalists Cathy Jordan, Brian O'Donovan, Natalie Haas, and Maeve Gilchrist, and the bands The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc and Solas. An interesting show including some typical Christmas fare along with the traditional Celtic tunes, all done in Celtic styles. So, something a bit different for the Holidays this year.

Thanks so much for this. Saw this year's show in Worcester last week; excellent as always. Maeve Gilchrist in particular is fantastic.
Thanks for all the posts this past year. A very Merry Christmas to you B.B., and the best for 2020.
