  • Christmas with the Celts

Christmas with The Celts will celebrate the holidays at The Newton Theatre on Saturday, Dec. 2, 2017, at 8 p.m. Tickets for Christmas with The Celts will go on sale to the general public on Friday, Aug. 11, at 10 a.m.

Tickets range from $29 to $44 and may be purchased by visiting or contacting the Box Office at 973-940-NEWT.

Christmas with The Celts isn’t just a concert; it is a celebration of the holiday spirit, in a spectacular production with stunning music, vocals, Irish dance, and humor. With a beautiful blend of traditional Irish and Scottish Christmas Carols and American Christmas favorites, the Celts embody the warmth, joy, and magic of the holiday season.

The high-stepping spirited musical selections will have audiences clapping along from the first lively renditions of popular contemporary Christmas classics: God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, Little Drummer Boy, Santa Claus is Coming to Town; also Count Your Blessings, White Christmas and John Lennon’s perennial Happy Christmas. The show presents the perfect combination of ancient Irish Carols, contemporary Christmas songs, spontaneous humor and thrilling Irish dancing giving audiences a most memorable Christmas experience.

The first live performance of Christmas With The Celts was filmed in front of a sold-out audience at Nashville’s prestigious Ryman Auditorium. The Celts' lineup features founder Ric Blair on vocals, guitars, bodhran, and piano, Laura McGhee on vocals and Scottish Fiddle, plus an ensemble of world class musicians playing uilleann pipes, Irish whistles, drums, mandolin, banjo plus always crowd pleasing Irish step dancers.

Christmas With The Celts is the brainchild of producer Ric Blair. Blair reigns as one the country's most respected purveyors of Celtic music. American-born he credits the popularity of Christmas With The Celts to both the nationwide broadcasting of the show as a PBS-TV special and the unique blending of modern Christmas standards with the spirit and sounds of Celtic roots.
