One of ASF’s favorite holiday traditions, The Pipes of Christmas Concert, will take place this year on Saturday, December 20 at 2 PM and 7 PM at the Madison Avenue Presbyterian Church in New York and on Sunday, December 21 at 2 PM at the Central Presbyterian Church in Summit, New Jersey. Tickets are now on sale for the 16th season of the concert series.
The wonderful sound of bagpiped Christmas music will be accompanied by Celtic literature readings from Scotland, Ireland, and Wales. Featured performers will include James Robinson from the film Braveheart, New England fiddle champion Paul Woodiel, “Riverdance” piper and flutist Christopher Layer, Gaelic Mod champion harpist Jennifer Port, and the Pipe Major Kevin Ray Blandford Memorial Pipe Band.
Produced by the Clan Currie Society, proceeds from the concert series will donate to a music scholarship program that helps support organizations such as the National Piping Centre and the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. The concert series is sure to be a festive way to celebrate the season in true Scottish style.
