Apollo's Fire: Wassail! An Irish-Appalachian Christmas

Christmas night in Ireland, 1849: Families and friends gather for singing, storytelling, plenty of wassail, and tearful farewells – as many of them prepare to depart for America the next day.

This heartwarming program from Jeannette Sorrell follows the hopes and fears of the Irish who bravely crossed the Atlantic, bringing their music with them. Irish singer Fiona Gillespie joins with fiddlers, medieval harp, hammered dulcimer, and bagpipes in this communal celebration of the American immigrant experience – welcoming Christmas with LOVE, SINGING, DANCING, and PRAYER.

Dec. 6 & 10 concerts with Jeannette Sorrell; Dec. 14-17 concerts with Irish actress Derdriu Ring
