Christmas Celtic Sojourn is back in New England for ninth season!


The wildly popular Christmas Celtic Sojourn concert, hosted by WGBH radio personality Brian O'Donovan, is back for its 9th season, and tickets are now on sale.

The concert evokes an old-fashioned Christmas in rural Ireland in days gone by, with plenty of music, dancing, singing, storytelling and poetry throughout the evening.

Among the performers this year:  Northern Irish singer Len Graham, uilleann piper Kieran O'Hare, Hanneke Cassell and Halali, and music director Seamus Egan.
