Three-Time Irish Music Award Nominees Siusan O’Rourke and Zig Zeitler are excited to offer a Gaelic evening of melody and song with “An Irish Night Before Christmas,” a program melding Christmas and the grand tradition of the Celts. The Saginaw-based duo will perform in concert on Friday, December 18 @ 7pm at the MqtUU Meeting House.
Donations in the form of a love offering will be accepted during the concert.
Zig and Siusan come equipped with a deep repertoire of seasonal songs, including Christmas In Killarney, Connemara Cradle Song, and a raft of original songs too. Their CD called “Chance The Arm” was named Best Celtic Album of 2014 by Celtic Echoes. Their catalog of music includes age-old traditional Irish songs, alongside new and contemporary music. Expect to hear beautiful vocals and excellent instrumentation, but for this special season, they will include other songs like Come Home To Ireland For Christmas, Auld Lang Syne and Silent Night.
