A CHRISTMAS GATHERING: FÉILE NA NOLLAG – TOURING 17-18

The acclaimed Irish ensemble, Danú, celebrates Christmas with ‘Féile na Nollag’ (A Christmas Gathering). Christmas in Ireland is one of the most important holidays for families and friends, as many Irish people living abroad come home to gather in celebration. Local community choirs singing traditional songs for Christmas and Wrens Day (Dec. 26) are a common site throughout Ireland each December. Music and dance gatherings, in communities both urban and rural, have often combined for generations to offer a great variety of songs, music, and stories for the holidays.

Danú’s Christmas Gathering offers a taste of these extraordinary events, which have been held across Ireland for hundreds of years. Celtic music lovers around the globe have been thrilled by their virtuoso players on fiddle, flutes, button accordion, percussion and the gorgeous voice of Nell Ní Chróinín along with top notch guest dancers. Winners of major awards from the BBC and Irish Music Magazine, Danu returns to the US in December with a new celebration of Christmas and Wrens Day from their homeland.
