Just in time for the holiday season, local Celtic music impresario Anita Daly has produced a CD of contemporary Celtic Christmas music performed by various artists she's worked with over the years. Please join us on this night for the launch party for the CD, "Together for Christmas" with a portion of proceeds from admission and CD sales to benefit local Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.
Performing artists at the launch event include Kyf Brewer of Barleyjuice, The Wild Colonial Bhoys, Garrett Wall, Tara O'Grady, John Munnelly, and more. Mike Farragher of the Irish Voice will co-host the event with Anita. In addition to those artists, the CD also features songs from The Elders, Cherish the Ladies, The Celtic Tenors, Damien Dempsey, Ashley Davis, The High Kings, Emma Kate Tobia and George Murphy, and Dave Browne's Temple Bar Band. Click HERE to read more about the CD.
Doors open at 8:30 with the music starting shortly thereafter. Admission is $20 at the door. Pre-meetup at HB Burger, 127 W. 43rd St., starting about 7 p.m. If you won't be able to join us or don't want to wait to get this CD you can buy it HERE for $14.95. Whether you buy the CD online or at the event, a portion of all proceeds will benefit post-Sandy relief efforts in and around New York City. Charities that will benefit from concert and CD proceeds include:
- The Pipers of Breezy Point
- Howard Beach United
- Knights of Columbus Long Beach
- Broad Channel Volunteers
This will be another chance to celebrate the season and help those hit the hardest by the storm, so please join us for an outstanding evening of Celtic music.
