Add a splash of Celtic to your Christmas

The Black Swan School of Celtic Music is having its 15th annual Christmas recital on Saturday, Dec. 20,  upstairs  at the Courtenay Legion.

This is part of the series of recitals sponsored by the Long and McQuade Music Education Centre. Everyone is welcome to join in the celebration of a Celtic Christmas.  The music starts at 7 p.m. So if you want to add a taste of Celtic fiddle music to your Christmas or solstice celebration, come on down. The students will be playing traditional Celtic music on their fiddles and flutes and penny whistles and you can sing along to some old Christmas favourites. The recital also features a set by the Black Swan Fiddlers. Everyone is welcome.
