Irish Dancer Marisa Gilman

New World String Project will be reviving a cherished holiday tradition this year. The well known Winterdance Celtic Christmas Celebration will return, with members of Molly’s Revenge and returning champion Irish dancers Marisa Gilman and Cameron Carlson-Riddle. This year’s music will include Celtic seasonal favorites from previous years, as well as new music with a decidedly Nordic twist. Attendees will enjoy airborne Irish dancers at most shows, and virtuosic performances on exotic instruments like nyckelharpa, cittern, Celtic harp, and cajon, as well as fiddle, guitar, and octave mandolin.

The Album: Cabin 22. Four highly skilled and well known multi-instrumentalists have joined forces to create an exciting weave of music rooted in the Celtic, Nordic and American folk traditions. Ancient and modern sounds mingle freely on tunes rooted in the northern landscape, and made for dancing. Join the New World String Project for a musical ride that will shake your boots, uplift your spirit and warm your heart.




“(New World String Project) literally pranced through their hour-long program at St. Mary’s in Pacific Grove, displaying both calculated structure and unbridled abandon.” –Monterey County Weekly (CA)

“Our audience certainly enjoyed your performance, and they have been telling us about it everywhere we go. You exceeded everyone’s expectations and introduced many of them to a completely new style and sound, which is a rare gift.” –Tim Bray, Oak & Thorn Productions

“Their show was fabulous, well attended, and full of peaceful, humorous, positive, enlivening energy. They took us all somewhere sublime!” — anonymous fan
