SCHF is proud to welcome three groups of local musicians to perform both traditional Celtic music and Christmas carols in a Celtic Christmas Celebration. The Celtic selections will range from fast Irish and Scottish reels to slow airs. All musicians recently performed in the Jackson Celtic Festival.

Members of Raise the Roof performing are Keegan Baldridge on fiddle, Terry Baldridge on bodhran and mandolin, and Leila Baldridge on bouzouki and guitar.

Landrum and Lessem includes Hollis Landrum on harp and dulcimer and Allan Lessem on flute and English horn.

The final group consists of Joann Ryan on vocals and guitar, Nicholas Blake on fiddle, and Mary Clare on flute.

Each group will perform culminating with a collaboration of all musicians. Join us for what promises to be a unique performance to celebrate the holiday season.
