Singing, dancing, juggling, caroling, storytelling and more will fill the historic Alberta Rose Theatre's stage as Magical Strings performs its Celtic Yuletide Concert. A grand gala of Celtic-inspired holiday music, this annual tradition features three generations of the multi-talented Boulding family -- playing Celtic harps, hammered dulcimers, violins, cello, whistles, concertina and percussion -- along with special guests. There's even opportunity for audience participation, as spectators are invited to don a costume, follow a processional through the aisles and join in for some caroling. For this performance, Magical Strings will be joined by the award-winning Tara Academy Irish Dancers, vocalist Colleen Raney, Canadian fiddler Jocelyn Pettit and other special guests. Learn More
Quotes & Highlights
- Watch a live performance from Joy Kills Sorrow.
Joy Kills Sorrow
Born of the illustrious Boston, Mass., folk and singer-songwriter scene, Joy Kills Sorrow is a musical collective of five classical and jazz-trained artists together to make stringband music. Though the quintet can usually be seen toting around bluegrass instruments, calling them a bluegrass band would be ridiculous. Their music is driven by a fierce poeticism, influenced by everything from chamber music to pop, indie rock, and yes - even bluegrass. Yet, if you listen closely, the band's sound doesn't flatly situate with any of those individual styles.
Fish & Bird
Fish & Bird's latest album, Every Whisper is a Shout Across the Void, marks a major step forward for the young band. The project began in Victoria, BC in 2006 as an acoustic duo, comprised of Taylor Ashton (banjo, guitar, vocals) and Adam Iredale-Gray (fiddle).
