Magical Strings Celtic Yuletide Concert @ Urban Grace Church
Dec 13 @ 7:30 pm

Magical Strings Celebrates 41 Years of Annual Celtic Yuletide Concerts
In Seattle on December 14, and Throughout the Northwest from Dec 1 – Dec 21, 2019

SEATTLE, WA – For many in the Northwest, it wouldn’t be the holidays without the harps, dulcimers, and energetic Celtic sounds of acclaimed family ensemble Magical Strings. The tradition continues this year, as Magical Strings enters the 5th decade of annual Celtic Yuletide Concerts taking place throughout Puget Sound in December 2019! Surprises lie in wait…

Tickets are available now, online at magicalstrings.com In Seattle, Tacoma and Kingston advance tickets are: $25 adults and $12 children (12 and under) for General Seating, and $32 for all seats in the Reserved Section. (Tickets are $3.00 more at the door.)

Enter the timeless realm of Celtic Yuletide! Three generations of the Boulding family, including daughter Brittany, violinist with the Seattle Symphony, set the stage ablaze with the Tara Academy Irish Dancers, lively fiddling of award-winning Canadian artist Jocelyn Pettit, soulful songs with Dublin guitarist Colm MacCarthaigh, powerful vocals and singalongs led by son-in-law Prescott Breeden, and dynamic percussionist Matt Jerrell.
Philip and Pam’s Celtic harps, dulcimers, concertina, accordion and more are gloriously accompanied by their daughter and four sons on violin, cello, whistles, harmonium and harp. Grandson Haydn brings down the house with his dancing, percussion and sidekick act to his father’s juggling. Their music sings mysteries from their most recent sojourns in Ireland and beyond. This festive gala of music, dance, storytelling, juggling, colorful costumed processional and songs of the season brings warmth and joy into the heart of winter.

About Magical Strings
Philip and Pam Boulding founded Magical Strings in 1978, the same year they began the Celtic Yuletide Concerts with their family. They have performed throughout the U.S., Canada, Ireland and Japan, toured and recorded with Dan Fogelberg, and recorded 21 albums on four labels. Once called the “Von Trapps of the Northwest” by local media, their love of music is embraced by their five grown children and six grandchildren, most of whom return each year to join the family band for the Yuletide Concerts.
