Danú: A Christmas In Ireland

Named after the Celtic mother goddess of the land, Danú aurally embodies the majesty of the Emerald Isle during an evening of traditional Irish song. Lead singer Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh was raised on an Irish Gaelic–speaking island in County Cork, where she spent her childhood honing her evocative alto pipes through sean-nós, or old-style, songs alongside local vocalists. Muireann propels Danú’s melodies with her full voice and spritely tin whistle while prancing flute solos intertwine with bow-breaking fiddling. Festive thumps from the traditional bodhrán drum, rustic acoustic plucking, and freewheeling accordion round out the euphony.

In “A Christmas in Ireland” (or “An Nollaig in Éirinn,”) Danú takes the holiday festivities of their homeland as their inspiration. Their seasonal songs pay tribute to such Irish traditions as placing a candle in the window, setting a place for anyone in need at The Laden Table, and journeying from home to home to sing and celebrate on St. Stephen’s Day. Several of the group’s seasonal selections were chosen because they need a little extra help—at each performance, a local choir joins Danú on stage to create an even richer sound and fulfill the event’s matching-robes quota.<p>

Count Basie Theatre

Upon entering the Count Basie Theatre, guests might feel as though they’ve slipped through a crack in time and ended up in the early 1900s. Opulent marble staircases and gold details grab the eyes of visitors, recalling the decadence of Hollywood’s history and gently pulling them to the auditorium. There, the acoustically pleasing construction wins out as sound spreads and funnels through a sunburst dome embellished with a dangling chandelier. Since opening in 1926, the Count Basie has earned numerous accolades, including a nod from Pollstar Magazine, who listed it as one of the Top 100 Worldwide Theatre Venues.
