Dubbed Minnesota’s own “Celtic Woman,” Katie McMahon is best known as the original voice of Riverdance. Katie has graced the stage of The O’Shaughnessy for over 10 years, becoming one of the theater’s liveliest holiday traditions. Her ode to the holidays, Celtic Christmas celebrates the season through a family-friendly program of traditional Christmas carols, stories and lively Irish dance. Along with the best Celtic Christmas music, Katie performs other beautiful carols from all over the world, making her shows a melting pot of different cultures, much like her adopted American home. New selections this year will feature music from Ireland, Italy and Spain.
Katie is pleased to welcome her original fiddler Tom Schaefer back to the show. The full line-up includes Katie (Voice & Irish Harp), McKnight award-winning musician Karen Mueller (Band Leader, Autoharp, Guitar & Bouzouki), Tom Schaefer (fiddle), Marc Anderson (percussion), Dave Draeger (bodhran) with backing singers Jenny Russ, David Moore and Eric Pratt, plus the fabulous talents of the Corda Mor Irish Dance Troupe. Come join us this year and make Katie McMahon’s Celtic Christmas a part of your Christmas tradition!
