Every holiday season Songs For Ceilidh (pronounced Kay-Lee) performs their Songs For Food show to raise money for various charities that feed the hungry. All proceeds the band makes from ticket sales will be donated to A Place to Turn, a Framingham food bank. In its 10th year, Songs For Ceilidh is proud to bring Amazing Things an evening of upbeat Celtic music. With modern interpretations of traditional Irish, Scottish and Atlantic Canadian music as well as their own Celtic inspired originals, you will be clapping along, stomping your feet, and spreading some cheer! “Ceilidh” is a Celtic word for party, and as Songs For Ceilidh says, “that is what we bring.”
- Tickets: Regular $15 ~ Senior 65 $14 ~ Member $12 ~ Student/Child $8
