The Clancy Legacy Celtic Christmas Returns to Linden Place Mansion
Linden Place Mansion will cross the musical sea on Friday, December 19th at 7:30 p.m. with The Clancy Legacy Celtic Christmas, a concert honoring both the holidays and winter solstice.
This concert is a celebration of the holiday season in the Clancy tradition! The Clancy Legacy includes some of the next generation of performers descended from the Clancy Brothers of Ed Sullivan fame in the 1960’s. Aoife Clancy (pronounced “Eefa”) is on vocals and bodhran, Robbie O’Connell on guitar and vocals and George Keith on fiddle and concertina – together they create a delightful musical tapestry to celebrate the season.
In this fireside performance in the carriage house style ballroom, The Clancy Legacy will perform Celtic-flavored pieces, ranging from little-known Kilmore carols of Wexford to the Irish-American vaudeville stage. They will also explore both the Christian and Pagan traditions surrounding the winter solstice in a mix of songs and instrumental pieces.
Tickets are $20, $16 for Linden Place members and $12 for Colt Circle Members and should be reserved in advance by calling the museum at 401-253-0390.
This concert is part of Linden Place Mansion’s month long holiday celebration and the historic house, decked for Christmas, and museum store will be open from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and Sunday 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. from Nov 29th through Dec 29th. Admission during the holiday season is $10.00 for adults, $8.00 for students & seniors, $5 for children under 12. (Children under 6 are admitted free).
