The 2023 line-up for Denver shows will introduce Caoimhín Ó Fearghail who plays traditional Irish music on guitar, flute, uilleann pipes, bouzouki and vocals. Caoimhín (Kweevin) , who is from the Gaeltacht area of Co. Waterford, has toured extensively in the U.S. and around the world with Caladh Nua and Danú; Caitríona Sherlock, a talented young singer from Monaghan, who has won two All-Ireland singing titles and appears frequently alongside Ireland’s leading instrumentalists and orchestras. Caitríona brings to Irish Christmas in America a magical voice and stage presence, invoking the warmth and charm of an Irish Christmas evening; Seán Gavin from group Bau will warm the room with his ornate and driving style on the flute and uilleann pipes (also flute); Gráinne Hambly from County Mayo in the West of Ireland is an internationally recognized exponent of the Irish harp; Samantha Harvey on piano and Irish dance; and (Producer) Oisín Mac Diarmada on fiddle.
Mac Diarmada enthuses about the program as a way to bring traditional and often unknown Irish customs to the States. “One of the most heartfelt themes of Irish Christmas is emigration,” says Mac Diarmada. “Music was a way that people stayed close to home.”
A sparkling tradition among holiday events, Irish Christmas in America is a special show for the season, and sold out back-to-back past performances in Colorado.
