Tomáseen Foley’s A Celtic Christmas

Now in its 27th season of touring nationally, Tomáseen Foley’s A Celtic Christmas recreates the joy and innocence of a night before Christmas in a remote farmhouse in his native parish of Teampall an Ghleanntáin in the west of Ireland – in the 1950s. A time when the neighboring families gather around the fire to grace the wintry night with traditional Irish Christmas carols, to raise the rafters with the joy of their music, to knock sparks off the flagstone floor with traditional dances and, of course, to fill the night with the laughter of their stories.

Featuring Grammy Award winning guitarist William Coulter, All-Ireland champion singer and fiddle player Eimear Arkins, Champion Irish dancer Marcus Donnelly, Cleveland native uilleann piper Brian Bigley, and, of course, native Irish storyteller Tomáseen Foley.
