Juniata Presents Eileen Ivers "An Nolliag: An Irish Christmas"
Juniata Presents Eileen Ivers "An Nolliag: An Irish Christmas"

Start Date: Dec. 04, 2012
Time: 7:00 PM

Eileen Ivers captures the spirit and magic of the ­season in her heartwarming holiday show ‘An ­Nollaig - An Irish Christmas.’ Each year, there is a great swell of anticipation for the grand ­celebrations surrounding Christmas in Ireland. There is the clamor and ­delight of Christmas Eve, the peace and beauty of Christmas Day and the lively ­parties the day after (Boxing Day) when the “Wren Boys” don their straw hats, dance in the streets, play their pipes, drums and fiddles and collect gifts for the less fortunate. Families ­entertain each other as they have for centuries with ­stories and ­music and Eileen Ivers shares these joyful Irish customs which are still reveled in today. The program ­features traditional Irish songs, original tunes and holiday favorites specially arranged by Eileen Ivers and Immigrant Soul including The Holly Tree, Don Oiche Ud i mBeithil (One Night in Bethlehem), Hark The Herald Angels (in traditional jig time), The Wexford Carol (12th Century Irish Christmas carol) and many others. Tickets start at $12. For more information about this performance and other performances, please visit our website at Location: Rosenberger Auditorium, Juniata College
