Irish Christmas In America
December 18 @ 7:30pm
Produced by Sligo fiddler Oisín Mac Diarmada, the hugely popular Irish Christmas in America show features top Irish music, song and
dance in an engaging performance rich in humour and boundless energy.  The 2015 tour features a new dimension with the addition of special
guest singer Teresa Horgan teaming up with legendary West Kerry singer Séamus Begley, famous for his charming wit and stunning vocal
prowess.

This family-friendly performance features evocatively-sung Irish seasonal ballads, lively instrumental tunes and thrilling Irish dancing, while
evocative photographic images provide a backdrop to some of the rich historical traditions of Ireland. 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 2015.

The holiday show was first conceived in 2005, with past tours featuring such stellar guest vocalists as Séamus & Méabh Begley, Lumiere (Pauline
Scanlon & Eilis Kennedy), 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.”

  • Last night’s set left me with chills. The way the band’s notes slide around, veering on the precipice, like they’re about to fall off the
    cliff, and the way McAllen achieves such emotional depth with such nuance and subtlety from her accompanying bandmates made for     
    an inspiring performance.” ~ GRAMMY.COM
  • Lead vocalist Shirli McAllen exudes an intoxicating flare of confidence, playing masseuse on your ears and sucking you in with her
    sugary sweet vocals.” ~ KROQ.COM
  • “With a unique western gothic stomp, gnarly burlesque rhythms and a surf swag that Best Coast would be jealous, the Leftover Cuties
    cut and paste multiple stylings so well that William S. Burroughs would have to tip his hat.” ~ WORDKRAPHT.COM
  • “Leftover Cuties have been one of LA’s secret musical weapons of the past couple of years.” ~ KCRW
  • "the Leftover Cuties have added a breath of fresh air to L.A.’s music scene, alongside outfits like The Dustbowl Revival and
