Description

Celebrating a Celtic Christmas Album release, 'The Lights of Christmas', The Jennifer Licko Bands ‘Celtic Christmas’ returns to Swansboro in December 2016!



The Band

Celtic Americana singer Jennifer Licko
"Jennifer Licko certainly has a voice made for the concert hall" …Boston Irish Reporter
Four time All-Ireland Fiddle champion Dylan Foley
“One the finest Irish fiddlers of his generation." - Brian Conway
Irish guitarist Brian Miller
"The backing of Miller on guitar flexes not just muscle but a fully complementary style."- Earle Hitchner
Bob Noble on Keyboards and arrangments
Hailed by Tony Visconti (producer for T. Rex and David Bowie) as one of the greatest keyboard players he has ever worked with.


The music of the holiday season has strong roots in Celtic traditions; “We have learned that there are some songs that resonate with our audiences because of familiarity.” says Jennifer, “This is important to us because while we love introducing more eclectic pieces on other tours, Christmas is the time of year where traditions and familiar sounds are an important aspect”. All of the traditional carols will be sung in English (We Three Kings, The First Noel), audiences will also hear songs in Scots Gaelic, Irish Gaelic, and French. An evening of Celtic Christmas traditions, songs and some blazing yuletide tunes on the fiddle; will be a highlight of your Christmas season.

This year the band will be launching their first Celtic Christmas CD, ‘The Lights of Christmas’, which includes the most poplular songs from the Celtic Christmas Concert. The album includes musicians from Jennifer’s band such as fiddle player Patrick Mangan from RIVERDANCE; the original Irish music & dance hit production, Patsy O’Brien, Bob Noble, and Ronan Moloney.
