Gesa Power House Theatre presents A Celtic Christmas by EVERDREAM (formerly known as Affinití) on December 8 and 9, at 7PM.
Emer Barry (soprano), Mary McCague (violin) and Teresa O Donnell (harp), from Ireland, have consistently sold out their show at the Powerhouse Theatre and so in 2022, will perform 2 nights, due to this exceptional demand in the past!
A Celtic Christmas will feature much loved Celtic and Christmas classics, including songs by Enya, music from Riverdance, some unique Irish Christmas songs, magical movie songs, toe tapping reels & jigs, their chart topping version of O Holy Night and of course, their now famous rendition of the Habanera, during which Emer embodies Carmen and gets up to all sorts of fun and frolics with the audience! Everdream will be joined by special guest, Howard Crosby who, along with his talented accompanist, Randy Kaping, will regale the audience with stories of his Uncle Bing and perform some of his most famous songs .
Emer, Mary and Teresa are masters of their instruments, and between them, have performed on stage and on television with some of the biggest name acts in the world, including Michael Bublé, Il Divo, Mike Batt, Rod Stewart and Katherine Jenkins. Aside from their calibre as musicians, what also sets them apart from other groups is the ease with which they interact with their audiences. Irish charm, natural wit and banter are all combined in this trio, ensuring that audiences will feel fully engaged in the show. They are also incredibly glamorous, so prepare to be dazzled by their stunning dresses!!
Formerly known as Affinití, the girls have been bringing their A Celtic Christmas show to American audiences since 2014 to great acclaim. Following their sell-out shows in 2019, their 2020 tour was all lined but then Covid struck, and like so many other international touring groups, their plans had to be halted. Because of the 2 year gap in their touring, Emer, Mary and Teresa are particularly excited to be returning to the Pacific NorthWest and felt that a fresh start warranted a new name, and so Everdream was borne out of the pandemic!
Reserved seating tickets ($35) are available online or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500.
