Celebrating its sixth year of sold-out concerts in North Carolina, The Jennifer Licko Band’s ‘A Celtic Christmas’ returns in December 2016 with a new Christmas album release!

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 popular 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 and Bob Noble.
