Happenings at the Irish Heritage Center

“Irish Christmas in America” comes to Cincinnati from Ireland Dec 1st, with song, dance, and stories 

Sligo, Ireland — “Irish Christmas in America” is a joyful celebration of the season in Ireland with songs, stories, humor, thrilling step dance, and lively instrumental tunes. Now in its 11th year and featuring some of the Emerald Isle’s best traditional artists, the performance comes to Cincinnati on Tuesday, December 1, 2015 at 7:00 pm, at the Irish Heritage Center of Greater Cincinnati, located at 3905 Eastern Ave in the Columbia Tusculum Entertainment District. Free parking behind the Center. Tickets are advance $27 ($25 members), $30 at the door, on sale now at cincyticket.com. For more info contact 513-533-0100 or www.irishcenterofcincinnati.com

Teresa Horgan, an up-and-coming vocalist and flutist from County Cork, is the 2015 special guest artist. Her earthy, emotive vocals have featured in two top Celtic groups and on her own first album, now gaining raves. She joins legendary artist Séamus Begley, named Ireland’s TG4 Traditional Singer of the Year. From a famous musical family in County Kerry, Begley is a fiery accordionist and hilarious story teller as well.


Fiddler Oisín Mac Diarmada of County Sligo is called “one of the most gifted and creative traditional fiddlers playing today” by The Irish Echo. The exciting step-dance of champion American dancer Samantha Harvey is a highlight of the show. The stirring uillean piping (Irish bagpipes) by Chicago’s own Sean Gavin, and driving guitar by Patrick Doocey complete the ensemble.
Mac Diarmada, a founding member of award-winning group Téada, first produced the show in 2005 to bring unknown customs to the States, from the haunting Irish carols to the “Wren Boys” shenanigans on St Stephen’s Day. It has been welcomed for its genuine feel.
