"I saw three ships come sailing in..."

"...on Christmas Day, on Christmas Day..."

This is one Christmas song that lends itself beautifully to being done in the Celtic style so naturally it was one of the songs performed by Mithril! *L* On Saturday evening we attended a performance of the Enid Symphony Orchestra at Symphony Hall:


A Celtic Christmas with Mithril

One of the World's most sought after
Celtic Music Ensembles

Now mind you, it wasn't as Celtic as Celtic Woman, but it was pretty darn good! The four performers who are Mithril are extremely talented and you can tell they have a deep love of Celtic music. Their songs were performed with energy and they were backed quite well by the ESO. They split the evening, some songs by the Orchestra, some by Mithril, etc. It was excellent!! I have several Christmas cds by Celtic performers and now I can't wait to start playing them!

If you want to know more about Mithril take a look at their website here. And if you would like to see or learn more about the ESO and Symphony Hall, then take a look here.

Enid is very lucky to have the Hall, the Symphony, and our Maestro. And the city does indeed support all of the above. I've seen larger towns that either don't have them or, if they do, don't support them at all. Enid is pretty good about it though.

I love Celtic Women! I'm going to have to YouTube Mithril and see if I can listen to their music too. I think those chandeliers are magnificent and that shiny wood floor is to die for. xxoo

They were awesome! I loved Dunmore Lasses/Castle Kelly. I was tapping my toes. Would have loved to hear their Christmas music too. xxoo
