by

comment

Irish Christmas in America is a show from Ireland that shares holiday traditions of music, story, song, and dance with American audiences. Among the beautiful voices from the Emerald Isle are Pauline Scanlon and Eilis Kennedy (known as Lumiere). The duo is accompanied by guitarist Donogh Hennessy and explores the moods of Christmas, from joyous to reverent. Seamus Begley is an award-winning singer who adds charming wit and makes merry on the accordion. Throw in the all-star band including multi-instrumentalist Sean Gavin, producer/ fiddler Oisin Mac Diarmada, and step-dancer Samantha Harvey, and you will be dreaming of a green Christmas as well.

Irish Christmas in America takes place Wednesday, December 11, 7:30 p.m. at First Baptist Church, 94 South Main St., Fairport, $15-$20, irishrochester.org.
