The Celtic Christmas Concert & Gathering is a Celebration of Community!
For seven years, the Bothwell Arts Center has welcomed the Annual Celtic Christmas Concert and Gathering, a celebration filled with music, food and laughter.
The event is produced by Gabriel “Gabe” Duffin, a folksinger who hails from Belfast, Ireland. Duffin’s band, “Pog Mo Thoin,” employs talented musicians from around the Bay Area, with Irish Ballads, folksongs, Christmas favorites with a Celtic flair, and are known for mischieviously breaking into a Pink Floyd number upon occasion.
The family-friendly celebration has become a local tradition, an opportunity to meet and mingle with friends both old and new before the Holiday whirl begins. Guests are encouraged to share a potluck dish of their choice and, in the past, buffet items have ranged anywhere from traditional beef stew to a platter of McDonald’s cheeseburgers or fancy holiday treats.
Cider and tea are offered for free, and wine, beer and Irish Whiskey is available for purchase. Duffin conceived of the Celtic Christmas Concert and Gathering as a fundraiser for the Bothwell Arts Center, and for seven years it has helped them continue to support the arts by providing artists, musicians, performers and creatives with affordable space to learn, teach and create.
