Haymaker Holiday Market

United Methodist Church Of Kent, 1435 E Main St, Kent, OH

Join Bryan Thomas and myself for the Haymaker Holiday Farm Market, which has all the wonderful locally grown and produced goodies and produce you expect from this long-running market, plus creative handmade goodies for everyone on your Christmas list! Bryan and I will be playing a mix of holiday favorites from our These Winter Joys CD and our usual sparkly mix of American Old TIme, Celtic and world folk.

On Christmas night in Old Ireland, families and friends gathered for singing, storytelling, and plenty of wassail. From a caroling party through the streets of Dublin to a holiday barn dance in Virginia, this heartwarming program follows the hopes and fears of the Irish that bravely crossed the Atlantic. Irish singing Fiona Gillespie joins with fiddlers, medieval harp, hammered dulcimer, and bagpipes in this communal celebration of the American immigrant experience.
