Legendary Irish accordion champion John Whelan teams up with the American Roots band Low Lily and Scottish style fiddler Katie McNally for a spectacular holiday mini-fest, The Turning of the Year: A Holiday Celebration, part of the Music in the Gallery concert series. The Turning of the Year: A Holiday Celebration will usher in the holiday season using the roots music of Ireland, Scotland, and America. Alongside high-octane jigs and reels will be lesser-known Christmas carols and wintry classics, featuring two fiddles, accordion, guitars, mandolin, and harmonious vocals. The show is much more than a triple bill – the artists perform separately, all together, and everything-in-between. From the sweet sound of the accordion with lush guitar textures behind it, to a blast of reels with everyone playing together, to an American song sung in three-part harmony, this show is dynamic and full of life. If you enjoy Irish and Scottish music, modern American string band music and harmonious vocals, you will surely enjoy this show.
