 Come Celebrate a Musical Celtic Christmas!
“At The Parish House” on December 15th

For decades a talented band of Celtic musicians has played to sold-out audiences in Virginia with brilliant renditions of Irish and Scottish songs and tunes. Lovingly nick-named “The Dwarves” (for historical reasons too complicated to explain here), the band will perform a Christmas concert at Emmanuel Church’s “At The Parish House” event on December 15. Returning with the band will be Mei-Li Beane whose voice and violin enthralled the audience at last December’s Parish House Christmas concert.
The performance is at Emmanuel Episcopal Church’s Parish House, 105 East Washington St. in Middleburg. Reservations are recommended, but not required (540-687-6297). A donation of $10 is suggested, but not required.  Refreshments served, and all are welcome!
