Currently celebrating its 25th anniversary, the Irish band Danú features lead vocalist Nell Ní Chróinín and an ensemble of fiddle, flutes, button accordion, percussion and pipes. Inspired by centuries-old holiday traditions, the program, “An Emerald Isle Christmas,” encapsulates Celtic festivities through lively music and accompanying guest step dancers. Prior to Danú’s performance, at 5:30 p.m., the nearby Georgia Museum of Art will host Make It an Evening with complimentary Jittery Joe’s coffee, slices of Cecilia Villaveces’ cakes and a gallery tour. Additionally, a pre-concert talk with a member of Danú will be held in Ramsey Concert Hall at 6:45 p.m.
