It has been quite a while since we have had some news for you but we hope it's worth the wait. We are excited to announce a very special Christmas show! We’ve teamed up with the fab folks over at Active Events to bring you a little festive flavour of HebCelt.
Michael McGoldrick, John McCusker and John Doyle have recorded a very special Christmas show to be streamed into the homes of people the length and breadth of the UK. Linking with venues and festivals across the UK, the trio will bring Christmas cheer directly to audiences in their own homes with a show for the HebCelt audience set for the 27th December. This format allows both artist and venue to benefit so through buying a ticket for the 27th of December you’re helping keep HebCelt and the music we all love so much alive.
The trio are delighted to present their inaugural Christmas concert featuring a diverse mix of classic Christmas melodies, traditional and contemporary songs and tunes. Whether performing material such as the medieval based song Curoo Curoo, John Shehan’s hauntingly beautiful melody Christchurch or the majestic O Holy Night, their decades of renowned musical expertise creates a magical and lasting impression.
Best known for their work with Bob Dylan, Mark Knopfler and BBC Transatlantic Sessions as well as artists including Solas, Capercaillie and Kate Rusby, the multi award winning trio have recorded a 45 minute set full of Christmas tunes as well as some firm favourites.
Michael McGoldrick explained “We felt we wanted to connect with people at this time of year and had been looking for a way to do this. This November we were supposed to be performing in Switzerland and the Czech Republic and John Doyle had flown over from his home in the US. The tour was cancelled at short notice and so we thought, this is our chance to use the time to record something special”
