Celtic Christmas making stop at Panida

| December 4, 2022 1:00 AM

Everdream (formerly known as Affinití) will kickstart their acclaimed A Celtic Christmas tour on Dec. 7 at the Panida Theater in Sandpoint.

The concert begins at 7 p.m.

Emer Barry (soprano), Mary McCague (violin) and Teresa O Donnell (harp), from Ireland first performed at the Panida Theater in 2019 and the concert was a complete sell out.

A Celtic Christmas will feature much loved Celtic and Christmas classics, including songs by Enya, music from Riverdance, some unique Irish Christmas songs, magical movie songs, toe tapping reels & jigs, their chart topping version of O Holy Night and of course, their now famous rendition of the Habanera, during which Emer embodies Carmen and gets up to all sorts of fun and frolics with the audience! Everdream will be joined by special guest, Howard Crosby who, along with his talented accompanist, Randy Kaping, will regale the audience with stories of his Uncle Bing and perform some of his most famous songs.

Emer, Mary and Teresa are masters of their instruments, and between them, have performed on stage and on television with some of the biggest name acts in the world, including Michael Bublé, Il Divo, Mike Batt, Rod Stewart and Katherine Jenkins. Aside from their calibre as musicians, what also sets them apart from other groups is the ease with which they interact with their audiences. Irish charm, natural wit and banter are all combined in this trio, ensuring that audiences will feel fully engaged in the show. They are also incredibly glamorous, so prepare to be dazzled by their stunning dresses!!

A Celtic Christmas will musically transport you to Ireland to hear beloved songs of Ireland, old and new, performed by three of Ireland’s most accomplished musical artists, in a relaxed setting, sprinkled with Irish charm and chat!

Tickets are available at www.panida.org. Advance purchase is recommended.
