“What Christmas should be about—celebration, craic, good music and song, the closeness of friends and family, and the thought spared for our sisters and brothers on the margins of life.” – Bill Whelan, Grammy Award-winning composer of Riverdance

It wouldn't be the holiday season without the cross-cultural ebb and flow of our favorite annual celebration of world music, dance, and storytelling. Featuring Mick Moloney, Athena Tergis, and a cast of America’s top Irish and world musicians, our Winter Solstice Celebration is guaranteed to fill your hearts with cheer. Kick off the winter season with your loved ones at “one of the best Irish contributions to a New York Christmas” (HuffingtonPost) with this unforgettable journey of winter solstice traditions from around the world.

This year, Winter Solstice welcomes MacDara Vallely to direct a ritual performance inspired by the old Celtic quarter festivals of the winter solstice, combining mumming, poetry, drama, song, and dance from Ireland, England and the Caribbean islands.
