Winterdance Celtic Christmas Celebration
Saturday, December 3, 2022 (3:00 PM - 9:30 PM) (PST)
New World String Project returns to St. Mary’s as a joyful and cherished holiday tradition with two members of Molly's Revenge and Champion Irish Dancers. This year's music includes Celtic seasonal favorites, and new music with a decidedly Nordic twist. Attendees will enjoy virtuosic performances on exotic instruments like the nyckelharpa, cittern, Celtic harp, and Cajon as well as fiddle, guitar, and octave mandolin.
The core of the Winterdance show is New World String Project, comprised of four highly skilled and well-known multi-instrumentalists that have joined forces to create an exciting tapestry of traditional music. Band members Lisa Lynne and Aryeh Frankfurter have played Swedish, Celtic and original tunes for many years together, while John Weed and Stuart Mason are known as long-time members of the legendary Molly's Revenge. The quartet has toured up and down the West Coast, where audiences have been enchanted by their rare instruments and masterful skills. The result is something new and uniquely their own--a sound rooted in the older traditions of Scandinavia, Appalachia, and the Celtic lands, yet shimmering with modern influences.
