Atlanta’s Celtic Christmas

In the words of the Rialto
Celebrate the music, dance, and soul of the season! A production of The Celtic Company, Atlanta’s Celtic Christmas features internationally and regionally renowned artists including musicians, dancers and bards, who represent the Irish, Scottish, Welsh, and Appalachian traditions. Celtic Christmas is much more than a concert performance, as music, dance, drama, and humor are woven together for an evocative, inspiring production that warms the soul with the music and dance of the ages.

“Celtic Christmas enchants with its powerful combination of Irish, Scottish, Welsh, and Appalachian music, dance, and poetry. This year’s concert will gather together an outstanding range of national and international talent for two magical performances. My family and I look forward to this unmissable event.” -Shane Stephens Consul General of Ireland
