APOLLO'S FIRE: CHRISTMAS ON SUGARLOAF MOUNTAIN (ONLINE EVENT)
AVAILABLE STARTING DECEMBER 18 (FOR 30 DAYS)
With KBB's Brian Bigley on Uilleann Pipes and as Irish Dancer
Performed in 10 sold-out concerts in Cleveland in 2017 and 2018, this joyous program from Jeannette Sorrell is a communal celebration of the American immigrant experience. Fiddlers, medieval harp, hammered dulcimer, bagpipes, and singers join with children’s voices to evoke the Celtic roots of an Appalachian Christmas. From Christmas Eve in medieval Ireland to folk carols at a toe-tapping Christmas gathering in Virginia… we follow the journeys of the Irish settlers who bravely crossed the Atlantic. The people of the mountains welcome Christmas with LOVE, SINGING, DANCING and PRAYER.
Filmed with close-ups, first-rate sound quality, and high production values, this video of the full performance at the Cleveland Museum of Art in 2018 has never before been released on video. Plan to watch it on your TV with your family!
