Robins to celebrate season with Celts
Christmas with the Celts puts an Irish spin on holiday celebrations.
The tour, which comes to the Robins Theatre on Sunday, is in its 13th year and is inspired by the PBS special of the same name, which ran for three years on PBS stations in the United States and well as in Canada and Ireland. The first live performance of Christmas with the Celts was staged at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, and since its debut, the production has traveled to New York’s Lincoln Center and performing arts centers, theaters and casinos around the country.
This year’s production includes Irish musicians Patrick D’Arcy and Fiachra O’Regan, who have performed with such acts as Bono, Sting, Quincy Jones and The Waterboys; and singer and fiddler Luisa Marion. Irish dance and comedy also will be featured.
The music will range from ancient Irish carols and 20th century Christmas favorites like “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town” and “White Christmas” to contemporary holiday songs like Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas” and John Lennon’s “Happy Christmas (War Is Over).”
The concert starts at 7 p.m. Sunday at the Robins, 160 E. Market St., Warren. Tickets range from $20 to $45 and are available at the Robins box office and online at robinstheatre.com.
