Christmas with the Celts on WXXI-TV

Sun, 12/11/2011 - 9:30pm - 11:00pm

Christmas with the Celts is an uplifting, spirited holiday celebration hosted by the international Irish music group, The Celts.

The Celts will perform along with special guests Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh from the world famous Donegal group Altan, Riverdance/Lord of the Dance piper Ivan Goff, The Gael String Orchestra, The Nashville Irish StepDancers, and the Children’s Celtic Choir. Filmed at Nashville’s famed Ryman Auditorium, Christmas with the Celts airs Sunday, December 11 at 9:30 p.m. on WXXI-TV/HD (DT21.1/cable 1011 and 11).

Described as “modern meets ancestral,”Christmas with the Celts combines fiery new arrangements of modern seasonal classics, including John Lennon’s “Happy Christmas,” with ancient carols discovered by producer/musical director Ric Blair — some dating as far back as the 12th century and with shockingly relevant lyrics, presented on PBS for the first time.


The concert last night

I really, really enjoyed this concert last night on WXXI Rochester, NY!!

What an absolutely incredible performance!

I would love to have the opportunity to seem them live on stage. Is there any chance that they might come to Rochester, Buffalo or Syracuse?
