Chandler celebrates “The Turning of the Year” with holiday mini-fest

Friday, Dec. 8, 7:30 p.m.—RANDOLPH—Seven-time, All-Ireland accordion champion John Whelan teams up with American roots band Low Lily and Scottish-style fiddler Katie McNally for a spectacular holiday mini-fest of Celtic and Americana music at Chandler Center for the Arts in Randolph on Friday, Dec. 8 at 7:30 p.m.

“This diverse and energetic show will usher in the holiday season with a fresh, new take on roots music from both sides of the pond,” said Tom Ayres, executive director at Chandler.

“The Turning of the Year” concert is much more than a triple-bill: the artists perform separately, all together, and all manner of in between. Celtic and folk music devotees will savor everything from the sweet sound of an accordion accompanied by lush guitar textures to a flurry of reels with everyone playing together to an American traditional song sung in three-part harmony. The high-spirited concert will kick off the holidays with a festive array of sights and sounds.

For tickets and more information, call the Chandler Box Office at 802-728-6464, visit chandler-arts.org, or stop by Chandler any weekday between 12-4 p.m. Chandler Center for the Arts is located at 71-73 Main St., Randolph.
