Acclaimed Irish ensemble Danú takes audiences on a trip to the Emerald Isle in this glorious celebration of the holidays. Christmas in Ireland is one of the most important times for families and friends. Music and dance gatherings, in communities both urban and rural, have come together for generations to share a variety of songs, music and stories for the holidays. A Christmas Gathering offers a taste of these extraordinary events, creating a festive atmosphere of virtuosic instrumentals, spirited dancing and gorgeous vocals from Nell Ní Chróinín and the Mercyhurst Concert Choir.
Hailing from counties Waterford, Dublin, Donegal and Cork, Danú is one of the leading traditional Irish ensembles of today. Their standing-room-only concerts throughout Ireland are true events featuring high-energy performances and a glorious mix of ancient Irish music and new repertoire.
Winners of numerous awards from the BBC and Irish Music Magazine, Danú has toured throughout Europe, the Middle East and North America, with stops at The Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, Symphony Space in New York City and major concert engagements in the United Kingdom, India, Israel and across Europe.
