A CELTIC CHRISTMAS

Featuring Jeff Johnson, Brian Dunning, Wendy Goodwin & Eric Miller

Jeff Johnson & Brian Dunning

The American/Irish duo’s music has become a mainstay in the Contemporary Celtic music genre with acclaimed releases such as Byzantium, The Bard & The Warrior, King Raven, Patrick, and A Quiet Knowing. Their songs have been selected for many best selling contemporary instrumental compilations including those released by Windham Hill (Celtic Christmas, Winter Solstice) and Hearts of Space (Celtic Twilight). Their music is often connected with the novels of Stephen R. Lawhead and they have had music featured in films such as Martin Scorcese’s Gangs of New York.

Johnson’s recent solo efforts include, Broken, Gazing and Journey Prayers which reflect his work with Selah, a contemplative worship service he presents in many churches and Christian retreat centers. He has also collaborated with the renowned guitarist Phil Keaggy on two recordings: Frio Suite and WaterSky.

Dunning’s latest recording is Blue Sphere Motifs with percussionist, Robbie Harris. He is a former member of the popular band, Nightnoise (Shadow Of Time, Something Of Time).

Wendy Goodwin

Wendy joined the trio in 2009 bringing a rich versatility and creative presence honed from many years as a performer and session player in the Pacific Northwest. Her most recent recording is Place of Refuge, which also features Johnson and Dunning.

In this year’s concert, the trio will perform music from the group’s diverse catalog in-cluding their popular Christmas recordings, Winterfold, Under the Wonder Sky and A Quiet Knowing Christmas.

Eric Miller

Guitarist and singer, songwriter Eric Miller’s own music combines genres in a totally re-freshing way, taking American Folk and blending it with the subtleties of Rock, Country, and Blues. He was a wonderful addition to last year’s tour and we’re delighted to have him join us again.
