The heartwarming presentation celebrates the joy of a traditional Irish yuletide through a combination of storytelling, traditional dance and live music. Master storyteller Foley is joined onstage by a cast of award-winning artists who perform in the Celtic tradition, including Irish dancers Marcus Donnelly and Marianne Knight, steel-string guitar master William Coulter and Brian Bigley on uilleann pipes, whistles and flute.
