Magical Strings announces the 40th Annual
Sunday, December 16, 2018 - 3:00pm
For many in the Northwest, it wouldn’t be the holidays without the harps, dulcimers, and energetic Celtic sounds of acclaimed family ensemble Magical Strings. The tradition continues this year, as Magical Strings announces its 40th triumphant year of annual Celtic Yuletide Concerts taking place throughout Puget Sound in December 2018! Surprises lie in wait…
Enter the timeless realm of Celtic Yuletide! Three generations of the Boulding family set the stage ablaze with the Tara Academy Irish Dancers, lively fiddling of Jocelyn Pettit (award-winning Canadian artist who will have recently returned from a European tour and studies in Scotland), soulful songs with brilliant Dublin guitarist Colm MacCarthaigh, powerful vocals and singalongs led by Prescott Breeden, and dynamic percussionist Matt Jerrell. Philip and Pam’s Celtic harp and hammered dulcimer sing mysteries from their most recent sojourns in Ireland, augmented by cello, violin, whistles, accordion and concertina. This festive gala of music, dance, storytelling, juggling, a colorful costumed processional and songs of the season brings warmth and joy into the heart of winter.
“…each year it just becomes more magical!”
“…haven’t missed a show in 30 years!”
“Our favorite Christmas tradition!!”
