The Robbie O’Connell Celtic Christmas Concert Returns to Linden Place Mansion

Posted by sbattle

Linden Place Mansion will cross the musical sea on Friday, December 15th at 7:30 p.m. with The Robbie O’Connell Celtic Christmas, a concert honoring both the holidays and winter solstice.

This concert is a celebration of the holiday season in the Celtic tradition! Rose Clancy on the fiddle and Robbie O’Connell on guitar and vocals – together they create a delightful musical tapestry to celebrate the season.

In this fireside performance in the carriage house style ballroom, Clancy & O’Connell 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.

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. November 24th through Jan 7th. 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).
