Description

On Saturday December 16, at 7pm in the Maedgen Theater (18th and Canton) on the TTU campus, the Vernacular Music Center, the J.T. and Margaret Talkington College of Visual and Performing Arts, the Caprock Celtic Association, and the Roots Music Institute present the 17th annual Caprock Celtic Christmas; this year’s theme is “A Desert Miracle.” Singers, players, dancers, storytellers, and more gather to perform traditional repertoires of the season.

Special guests include trumpeter Andrew Stetson and the Bassandan Brass, bagpiper Roger Landes avec Les Cinqs Cornemuses, Taos’s Chipper Thompson and Kim Treiber, Texas songwriter Curtis Peoples, and the great Bal-Folk band RattleSkull! Caprock Morris and the Brothers Grimm dance teams provide the wild capers of the Border Morris, the Tech Irish Set-Dancers great social sets, step-dancer Sarah Midgely elegant slip-jigs and reels, and the Elegant Savages Orchestra presents traditional Breton, French, English, and Irish songs and tunes, as well as seasonal favorites from the “lost world of Bassanda.”

A returning special feature this year: the sonorous voices and evocative language of poets & readers William Gelber, Angela Mariani, and Clint Barrick, with selections from Celtic and Bassandan holiday texts.

The Celtic Christmas has become a Lubbock favorite with adults and kids alike and advance purchase is strongly advised.
