Now in its 20th season, Tomáseen Foley’s A Celtic Christmas recreates the joy and innocence of a night before Christmas in a remote farmhouse in the parish of Teampall an Ghleanntáin in the west of Ireland – when the neighboring families gather around the fire to grace the wintry night with the haunting melodies of traditional Irish Christmas carols, to raise the rafters with the joy of their music and to knock sparks off the flagstone floor with traditional dances, and to fill the night with the laughter of their stories.
"Tomáseen Foley is doing what his ancestors have done for centuries - long before "The Nutcracker" or "It's a Wonderful Life"- he is carrying on an ancient tradition for the audiences that pack theatres across the United States every winter to see it."Mail Tribune, Medford, OR
"With many frustrated and disillusioned by the materialism of the holiday season, Tomáseen Foley's A Celtic Christmas is like a cup of Irish coffee in a neighbor's kitchen on a dark night- warm, comforting and full of cheer."Noozhawk, Santa Barbara, CA
