A hauntingly beautiful celebration of Christmas, A Celtic Christmas is a one-hour program showcasing Irish music and dance going back to the 12th century as well as the most modern Celtic innovations such as River Dance and Lord of the Dance. Thrilling pieces featuring the Uilleann pipes, Irish whistle, Celtic fiddles, Irish drums, along with keyboard and percussion performed by the world-renowned Irish music group The Celts are sure to leave viewers breathless.
Special guest performances include a roster of the world's best Irish musicians including Dublin piper Ivan Goff, Altan singer and Donegal fiddler Mauread Ni Mhaonaigh, The Gael String Orchestra, The Nashville Irish Step Dancers, and the Celtic Christmas Children's Choir.
“This is a Christian Celtic Christmas extravaganza,” says Susan Zahn, Christian media expert. “It’s a perfect marriage for TBN and Christian television, and a perfect musical blend when the ancient world meets the amazing innovations of the twenty-first century. A Celtic Christmas showcases carols dating back some nine hundred years, combined with the spicy excitement of modern drum loops and synthesizer work. It’s another TBN must-see program for Christians and music lovers alike.”
A Celtic Christmas is a full theatrical, cultural performance, capturing the quick wit and humor for which the Irish are known. Dramatic readings about the birth of Christ from the Glaswegian Bible in the Scottish dialect with a guest appearance by Scottish actor and author Jamie Stuart complete this multi-faceted program.
