Eric Rigler & Dirk Freymuth
December 18, 2021 @ 8:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 5:00 pm, repeating until December 19, 2021
“World’s Most Recorded Piper” Eric Rigler (OUTLANDER, BRAVEHEART, TITANIC) and multi-talented guitarist Dirk Freymuth return to create a night of acoustic holiday cheer. Drawing from traditional Irish & Scottish melodies featured in their PBS Special, “Celtic Journeys: Songs & Soundtracks”, and themes from Eric’s motion picture & television soundtracks, the artists will highlight music from the Christmas tradition–both familiar and lesser-known pieces from the British Isles, Ireland and other Celtic Nations within Europe.
The evening features Eric performing on a seldom-seen Celtic wonder, the uilleann pipes, (the traditional bagpipes of Ireland)—a complicated and evocative ancient instrument capable of producing sounds from mournful and sublime to euphoric. With Eric on bagpipes & whistles and Dirk on acoustic guitars, the ensemble will be joined by special guest and frequent collaborator, Wanda Law on Irish fiddle, viola and button accordion.
