For many in the Northwest, it wouldn’t be the holidays without the harps, dulcimers, and energetic Celtic sounds of the acclaimed Boulding family ensemble Magical Strings. The tradition continues with a performance that sings mysteries from the Boulding family’s most recent sojourns in Ireland and beyond. This year, Magical Strings enters the 5th decade of annual Celtic Yuletide Concerts taking place throughout Puget Sound. Three generations of the Boulding family, including daughter Brittany, violinist with the Seattle Symphony, take the stage with the Tara Academy Irish Dancers, lively fiddling of award-winning Canadian artist Jocelyn Pettit, soulful songs with Dublin guitarist Colm MacCarthaigh, powerful vocals and singalongs led by son-in-law Prescott Breeden, and dynamic percussionist Matt Jerrell. Sit in for this festive gala of music, dance, storytelling, juggling, colorful costumed processionals, and songs of the season brings warmth and joy into the heart of winter.
