KQED 9: Sun, Dec 16, 2012 -- 2:00 PM
This program celebrates the holiday in a very unique way; by bringing Irish and Scottish music - which was the underpinning of today's American Country music - full circle to the world famous home of country music, the historical Ryman Auditorium. We'll hear Irish and Scottish carols, along with popular Christmas carols performed by The Celts and including specials guests Mairead Ni Mhaonaigh (Altan); Dublin uilleann piper Ivan Goff (Riverdance); The Gail String Orchestra, and The Nashville Irish Step Dancers.
