Oisín Mac Diarmada Brings His Interpretation of Irish Christmas in America to Colorado Springs

Coming to Colorado Springs on Tuesday, December 17th is the highly-anticipated Irish Christmas in America! Produced by Sligo fiddler, Oisín Mac Diarmada, this hugely popular show features top Irish music, song, and dance in an engaging performance rich in humor and boundless energy.

The 2019 tour features special guest singer Niamh Farrell, a Sligo vocalist, who has toured with UK singer/songwriting star David Gray. Niamh teams up with legendary West Kerry singer Séamus Begley, famous for his charming wit and stunning voice. This family-friendly performance features evocatively-sung Irish ballads, lively instrumental tunes, and thrilling Irish dancing, while evocative photographic images provide a backdrop to some of the rich historical traditions.

The holiday show was first conceived in 2005 with past tours featuring such stellar guest vocalists as Séamus Begley, Teresa Horgan, Méabh Begley, Lumiere, Karan Casey, Cara Dillon, Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh, Cathie Ryan, and Michael Londra. 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.”

Take a memorable glimpse into the enchanting spirit of Christmas, as the finest traditional artists from Ireland bring you on a fun-filled start to the holiday season of 2019. A sparkling tradition among holiday events, Irish Christmas in America is a special show to see this season! Advanced general admission is $25 at www.stargazerstheatre.com.
