The music of Christmas, perfectly suited to the ageless tones of the acoustic guitar, comes to life in Robin and Steve’s concert of carols and hymns spanning over 600 years. Internationally recognized as master Celtic instrumentalists, they celebrate the many moods of the Yuletide season in gorgeous guitar interpretations, augmenting their six-string virtuosity with selections on cittern, mandolin and piano. Combining familiar favorites such as "What Child is This," "The First Noel," "O Little Town of Bethlehem" and a show-stopping guitar arrangement of "Carol of the Bells" with lesser-known pieces such as the traditional Scottish carol "Rorate," the Irish "Wexford Carol" and the Shetland Islands fiddle tune "Christmas Day in the Morning," they weave a spell from centuries of tradition and the joy of the season, creating an unforgettable evening of acoustic Christmas cheer.
