CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, December 11 - December 17, 1998 - 75 Celtic Christmas in Wilmington to feature Seamus Kenned y 13,ec:. 20 On Sunday, Dec. 20, Irish singer Seamus Kennedy will pre- sent a Celtic Christmas at the Wilmington Drama League. Kennedy will showcase much of the material from his seasonal al- bum, "Goodwill to Men," and has invited a number of other lumi- naries, including Charlie Zahm, Tad Marks and the McAleer School of Irish Step Dancers. Originally from Belfast in Northern Ireland, Kennedy sings the songs of his native land with emotion born of knowing its his- tory and conflicts firsthand. But he is far from simply of Celtic tunes. His extensive touring has made him adept at meeting the re- quests of virtually any audience and his repertoire appears almost endless. Kennedy is equally at home with Irish ballads to folk, pop, country or traditional Songs. Presenting another side to the Celtic influence is Charlie Zahm, whose roots are in the largely Scottish province of Ontario, Canada. His baritone is the perfect vehicle for the songs of the sea and traditional ballads he favors. Tad Marks will offer some in- novative music on the fiddle. Marks, of Baltimore, has earned a reputation for his Celtic and blue- grass styles. Irish stepdancers from the McAleer School will offer their special brand of "riverdancing" to close out the evening. The Wilmington Drama League is located at 10 West Lea Street in Wilmington. The show starts at 8 p.m. and tickets are $15 for gener- al seating. The doors open at 7:30 p.m. For more information, or to order tickets, call 302-738-0439.
