The arts of the Irish, Scottish, Welsh and Appalachian holiday traditions will take the Rialto stage this weekend for Celtic Christmas. WABE's John Lemley sat down with a few of the musicians—Joe Craven, Lisa Edwards, and John Maschinot—to talk about the show. John began by discussing the oral traditions that birthed much of the music and poetry they will be performing.
See a video of Joe, Lisa, and John performing with guitarist Evan Kinney in the WABE studios here:
Celtic Christmas is onstage at the Rialto Theater Saturday night at 8 and for a Sunday matinee at 3. For details, visit Atlanta PlanIt.
