The internationally known Celtic artist, Nóirín Ní Riain will be in our own Columbia the first part of Advent! This is actually part of a St Louis – Columbia – Kansas City Missouri tour. Our date is the Tuesday after the first Sunday of Advent, November 29, 7:00 p.m. It will be held in the sanctuary of Broadway Christian Church.

Noirin is known for working in the Celtic spiritual traditions and she has recorded with the Monks of
Glenstal Abbey. With occasions to play for the Dali Lama and represent Ireland in other internationals gatherings, her reach has been significant. She travels with her two instrumentalist sons, “the lads.” One of her well known CDs is Celtic Soul– a gathering of the spiritual traditions. She will be sharing a variety of music at the concert but some of it will reflect the traditions of Advent.

We are also working on putting together a Columbia workshop on Celtic spirituality.
