christmas with the celts didn't exactly begin as a christmas concert. dulcimer player marcille wallis released her very first cd in december 2000, and since the release happened to occur during the christmas season, a combined cd release party/christmas concert was planned. the gathering proved so successful and so much fun that the decision was made to do it again! a second cd, called "christmas with the celts" and including vocal selections, went into production just a few months later. the second christmas concert, now with its new name "christmas with the celts," also featured irish and scottish dancing.
the cast evolved over the years, to
dallas albritton, morris campbell, aaron carr, donna chapman, paul cottrell, michael delalla, anthony delle donne (original), robin hendrickson, jaime knaub, ann lloyd, cal lloyd, johnny maio, larry miller, matt miller (active), don pigeon (active), frances pisacane, nicole porter, trina schyhol (original), sebastian valley (active), marcille wallis (original, active).
and over the years we played to tens of
thousands in various venues in these florida cities and towns:
