Here is what fans are saying…. Ticketmaster Reviews   “ABSOLUTELY THE BEST THING I’VE SEEN IN A LONG TIME!” “THIS EVENT COULD HAVE NOT BEEN BETTER!” “THE SHOW WAS FANTASTIC!....THE MUSIC WAS STIRRING AND POWERFUL….IT GAVE ME GOOSEBUMPS.” The high-stepping spirited musical selections have audiences clapping along from the first lively renditions of popular contemporary Christmas classics: ‘God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen’, ‘Little Drummer Boy’, ‘Santa Claus is Coming to Town’; also ‘Count Your Blessings’, ‘White Christmas’ and John Lennon’s perennial ‘Happy Christmas’. The show presents a perfect combination of  modern Christmas hits, lively Irish Carols, hilarious spontaneous humor, thrilling Irish dancing, a children’s choir and lush string arrangements giving audiences a most memorable interactive Christmas experience. The Celts lineup stars, Ric Blair on vocal-guitar-bodhran & piano along with the lovely Laura McGhee from Dundee Scotland on vocal and fiddle complemented by an array of top-flight musicians on uilleann pipes, Irish whistles, bass, drums and of course the crowd pleasing Irish dancers. Also, the spectacular former lead dancer for Lord of the Dance, Bobby Hoock will be joining again for this year's Christmas tour as well as lovely Scottish singer/fiddler Alison Ewan from Glasgow Scotland and All Ireland piper Fiachra O'Regan from Connemara, Ireland.  Christmas with The Celts isn’t just a concert; it is a celebration of the holiday spirit, people, community and common connections. It’s about bringing young and old together to celebrate this special time of year.  Show producer Ric Blair says, “You can't listen to Celtic music and not be happy.  It is a music of the people.  I think that is why this unique melding of modern Christmas hits and organic Celtic instrumentation continues to resonate and grow in popularity every year with audiences around the world.”
