Celtic ChristmasNashville, TN -- A Celtic Christmas returns to the Ryman Auditorium for one special evening on Dec. 14th to celebrate Christmas "Scots/Irish Style" After a hugely successful showing at the Ryman in 2010, the Ryman Auditorium, Celtic Isle Records, Inc. Insyc Music, and September Productions are once again presenting A Celtic Christmas at The Ryman on Wed., Dec. 14 at 7:30 p.m. The evening will also include a food drive to benefit The Salvation Army's Emergency Services in Middle Tennessee. Visit this link for ticket information.

Attendees are asked to bring non-perishable food donations to the concert and drop off at The Salvation Army's booth located in the lobby. The Salvation Army is serving thousands of needy families this holiday season and served over 1,000 meals during the Thanksgiving holiday, depleting much of their food pantry's inventory.

A Celtic Christmas at The Ryman is a huge production. Celtic Isle Records, Inc. is flying in some of the best Irish musicians and performers in the world. An amazing line up! The concert will be hosted by international Irish music group The Celts and will be joined by special guests including lead singer, Cathy Jordan of the Irish group Dervish. Also on hand, Riverdance/Lord of the Dance piper Ivan Goff from Dublin, the Nashville Irish Stepdancers, comedian Jeff Durham, The Celtic Children's Choir and Nashville Strings.

Also, the taped show, Christmas with The Celts has been picked up by national PBS stations and will be aired as a Pledge show on PBS across the country starting Dec. 2nd. Nashville Public Television (NPT) will use Christmas with the Celts as a pledge show and taped the pledge portion of the show on September 29th.

A Celtic Christmas at The Ryman is an unprecedented performance which features not just Irish dancing and the best of Celtic music, Irish and Scottish humor, theatrics, and an incredible show, but most of all Christmas inspiration and the message of hope.

The evening features ancient Irish and Scottish Christmas Carols that go as far back as the 12th century, combined with modern drum loops and synth work. The performance, described as ancient meets modern, also presents carols that everyone knows enhanced with celtic instrumentation. This is a perfect blend of the old and the new with an earthy warm fireside feel.

The celebration features readings about the birth of Christ from the Glaswegian Bible in the Scottish Dialect. This show is not just celtic music and Irish dance but rather a full theatrical cultural performance. You will laugh, you will cry, you will want to dance, and you will be inspired. You will celebrate the simplicity and the haunting beauty of "A Celtic Christmas" like never before.
