Irish Christmas comes to Encore
Published on -11/6/2013, 8:19 AM
This Christmas season, acclaimed Irish ensemble band DanÃº will bring its festive, foot-stomping tunes to Fort Hays State University at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 10 as part of the Encore Series. The concert, "Christmas in Ireland: An Nollaig in Ãâirinn," will feature traditional Gaelic and Christmas music.
Tickets go on sale Nov. 11.
DanÃº is a six-piece ensemble on traditional instruments such as the tin whistle, bodhrÃ°n and bouzouki. The singer, Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh, is fluent in both English and Gaelic, performing songs ranging from familiar Christmas carols such as "Angels We Have Heard on High" to "Le Caoinle na n'Aingeal," or "Candle of Angels," a song about the Christmas tradition of lighting a candle in the window as a sign of welcome.
