Molly’s Revenge and special guest vocalist Christa Burch with the Rosemary Turco Irish Dancers will present the seventh annual Winterdance Celtic Christmas Celebration on Saturday, Dec. 8 at the Sutter Creek Theater.
It’s an evening of music, song and dance associated with the festive season. The performance will include the joyous music of Christmas, played with a Celtic twist. This popular annual show balances the warm, angelic vocals of Christa Burch with the lively traditional jigs and reels of Celtic folk band Molly’s Revenge.
Molly’s Revenge, whose lineup includes bagpipes, fiddle, whistle, guitar, bodhran and mandola, has toured extensively in the USA and in Australia, China and Scotland.
The band is known for its unique and infectious on-stage enthusiasm. The classic combination of bagpipes, whistle, fiddle, and song, with guitar, bodhran, and mandola accompaniment, guarantees an enjoyable experience for all fans of Scottish and Irish music.
Their arrangements of traditional jigs and reels bring these dance tunes up to date with a driving, hard-edged accent that always leaves audiences shouting for more.
Aaron Jones, bouzouki player with Scottish Folk Band of the Year Old Blind Dogs, produced the band’s tenth recording, “Aged 10 Years,” which was released in March 2011.
Guest vocalist Christa Burch possesses a singular voice: warm, supple, expressive, intimate, and instantly recognizable. Part of a vibrant new generation of American folk singers, Burch deftly marries intuitive musicianship and storytelling through song.
Winterdance takes place at 8 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 8 at the Sutter Creek Theatre, 44 Main Street in Sutter Creek.
Tickets are $18 in advance or $20 day of show. Kids 12 and under are $10. Tickets are available online at suttercreektheater.com or at the venue.
