“Fine Winter’s Night,” the holiday concert from Irish duo Matt & Shannon Heaton, features original and traditional music to help usher in Christmas. With an appealing blend of voices, guitar, bouzouki, Irish flute and whistle, the Heatons’ music and stage show is simultaneously homegrown, refined and timeless. Having built their act from years of touring together, husband-and-wife Matt and Shannon have grown into thoroughly entertaining performers. They bring to the stage a depth of shared experience, a love for Irish music and for their audiences. The Heatons will be accompanied by a lively performance of tradition Irish step dancing by Boston-based dancer Kiernan Jordan. Some hot cider and homemade cookies round out this heart-warming season program.
The accompanying CD, Fine Winter’s Night will be available for purchase. It was lauded by the Boston Glove as “alluring freshness and vitality… a cocoa warm set of carols, wintry jigs, and originals about the snuggling moods of midwinter.”
“Their playing is masterful and inventive, their arrangements city-smart and spacious. Still, they never forget that Irish music is, at its heart, a neighborly form meant for sharing, not showing off.” —Scott Alarik Boston Globe
