Christmas at Linden Place Mansion presents
A Celtic Christmas with
The Clancy Legacy
Friday, December 13, 2013, 7:30 P.M.
Linden Place Mansion will cross the musical sea on Friday, December 13th at 7:30 p.m. with The Clancy Legacy Celtic Christmas, a concert honoring both the holidays and winter solstice.
This concert is a celebration of the holiday season in the Clancy tradition! The Clancy Legacy includes some of the next generation of performers descended from the Clancy Brothers of Ed Sullivan fame in the 1960’s. Aoife Clancy (pronounced “Eefa”) is on vocals and bodhran, Robbie O’Connell on guitar and vocals and George Keith on fiddle and concertina – together they create a delightful musical tapestry to celebrate the season.
In this fireside performance in the carriage house style ballroom, The Clancy Legacy will perform Celtic-flavored pieces, ranging from little-known Kilmore carols of Wexford to the Irish-American vaudeville stage. They will also explore both the Christian and Pagan traditions surrounding the winter solstice in a mix of songs and instrumental pieces.
Tickets are $20, $16 for Linden Place members and $12 for Colt Circle Members and should be reserved in advance by calling the museum at 401-253-0390.

Fireside Christmas stories with
master storyteller, Rob Dimmick
Saturday, December 14, 2013, 2:00 PM
Linden Place Museum invites you to a very special holiday program on Saturday, December 14, 2013 at 2:00PM. Actor and Master Storyteller Robb Dimmick makes the meaning of Christmas clear with mesmerizing readings of Dylan Thomas’ “A Child’s Christmas in Wales” and Truman Capote’s “A Christmas Memory.”
For Robb, a dramatic performer and storyteller for over 20 years, A Child’s Christmas in Wales is as bound up in the memories of Christmas as the tree, the tinsel, and the snow itself. Thomas’ lovely poetry evokes the joy and merriment of childhood, the festivity of the holidays, and the delight of the unexpected. With fires in the parlor, unpopular gifts, and simpering aunts, there is something for everyone to enjoy in this lyrical retelling of a time and place long gone, but nonetheless familiar to all.
Truman Capote’s seldom-heard “A Christmas Memory” is another beautiful evocation of the holiday. Drawn from Capote’s own childhood in the South, it takes audiences to a time when simplicity was more meaningful than abundance. Fruitcakes, handmade gifts, and holly in the windows decorate this story with plain beauty. Seen from a child’s eyes, one experiences how Christmas can, and does, touch the heart forever.
Join us in the ballroom and let a master storyteller delight and enrich your holiday season. This program is open to all ages. Tickets are $12 for adults $5 for children and includes admission to tour the festively decorated Linden Place Mansion. Members of Linden Place receive at $2 discount and admission is free for Colt Circle members.
