SONG OF SOLSTICE: A Celtic Christmas Celebration Featuring OCEAN Celtic Quartet
Sunday, December 17 @ 4:30 pm$10.00 – $20.00
Jennifer Cutting’s OCEAN Celtic Quartet will transport you to the Yuletide celebrations of yore in a program featuring traditional carols, foot-stomping Celtic fiddle tunes, 19th century broadside songs, original seasonal compositions, and even an appearance by Father Christmas of the old mummers plays! With their soaring vocals and high-energy Celtic instrumentals, OCEAN is known for marrying lighthearted exuberance with great spiritual depth in a program that appeals to all faiths and wisdom traditions. The OCEAN Celtic Quartet is led by composer and ethnomusicologist JENNIFER CUTTING (accordion and keyboards), a Washington Area Music Association Musician of the Year and Songwriter of the Year. OCEAN features the stunning vocalist CHRISTINE NOYES (formerly of the maritime music group Crab Alley), folklorist/vocalist/percussionist STEPHEN WINICK, plus U.S. National Scottish Fiddle champion SEÁN HEELY. Cutting’s original anthem, “Song of Solstice,” has become a classic on Celtic and Folk radio, and is the title cut of OCEAN’s newest CD. Come prepared to sing along with OCEAN!
