Ken O'Malley's "Twelve Days of an Irish Christmas"
Memories of Dublin’s winter nights and the warmth of an Irish Christmas will come to life through song and story in “Ken O'Malley's Twelve Days of an Irish Christmas", a solo musical performance which will take place on Sunday, December 12, 2010 at the Fox Event Center in Redlands.
The University of St. Thomas at Houston proclaims that Ken O'Malley is "widely regarded as the finest Irish folk singer/songwriter in the United States today" and the Irish News calls this consummate entertainer "without question, . . .the single most enduring, influential and proficient of all Irish musicians in Southern California . . ." In this captivating show, the Dublin born singer-songwriter will transport his audience to his beloved Ireland with his rich, resonant voice and engaging stage presence accompanied by his remarkable talent on guitar and mandolin.
The event promises to be a magical evening of music with songs in both English and Irish Gaelic, suitable for all ages. Not just a singer, about whom Dave Soyars of the Irish Herald writes "his powerful and emotive voice shines through on everything he does", O'Malley is also a cultural ambassador and educator who infuses every performance with a genuine passion and love for his native land and its people. As one longtime fan says "the songs Ken sings touch all of us, Irish or not, to the very core of the human heart."
Admission is $15. Showtime is 3:00 PM on Sunday, December 12, 2010 at the Fox Event Center, 123 Cajon St., Redlands, CA 92373.
