Once again in 2019, Molly’s Revenge with guest vocalist Amelia Hogan and Irish dancers will present Winterdance, an evening of music, song and dance associated with the festive season. The performance will include Christmas songs both old and new, all played with a Celtic twist, and something new for our regulars.

The core of the Winterdance show is the dynamic Celtic trio, Molly’s Revenge, whose lineup includes Highland bagpipes, fiddle, whistle, guitar, mandola, and bodhran. They have toured extensively in the USA as well as Australia, China and Scotland.  The band is known for its unique and infectious on-stage enthusiasm.  The band recently released their 14th album titled The Lucky Set.

Guest vocalist Amelia Hogan sings traditional, Irish, Scottish, British, American and contemporary folk music with lilting grace and subtle power. She transports you with a spell into another time and place, where the beansidhe (banshee) cries and lovers embrace. Haunting melodies, stirring passion, and evocative storytelling are what you’ll find with Amelia’s music.

The Murray Irish Dancers bring a percussive, joyful, and colorful exuberance to the stage. This 14th Annual Celtic Christmas Celebration will capture the traditional spirit of the season and warm the hearts of all.

The Murray Irish Dancers in Corvallis 2017

These folks gave an outstanding concert last year.  The crowd was enthusiastic, especially when the musicians upped the tempo and the Irish dancers joined in with gusto.
