An Irish Christmas
Celebrate an Emerald Isle holiday as Moya Brennan returns by popular demand with a new selection of musical gems for the season. After catapulting to fame as the voice of the renowned group Clannad, Moya Brennan has become one of the most recognizable voices in Irish music. Inspired and illustrated by photographs of Ireland taken by her husband, Tim Jarvis, at the time they first met, the show offers holiday tradition and a dash of romance. Become part of one of Nat Geo Live’s most enduring traditions and join us for a memorable evening of music and imagery.

Special performance by the Culkin School of Traditional Irish Dance. Enjoy seasonal fare before the show for sale at the NGS Café.

Holiday Fiesta with Cambalache
Celebrate the holidays Veracruz-style with the festive rhythms and melodies of Cambalache. Based in East L.A., Cambalache (meaning “exchange”) has become a world music sensation playing the exciting son jarocho style from the southern Mexican state of Veracruz. For this special holiday dance party in the National Geographic Dining Hall, the group will play Mexican Christmas songs and teach us the fandango dance style—an energy-fused Latino tradition to jump-start your season!
