The group whips up a musical potpourri of family favourites culled from traditional Christmas ceilidhs, midnight masses and other festive fare. Laden with distinctive harmonies, the songs are supported on a bed of instruments ranging from guitar, fiddle and mandolin to the bodhran, banjo and bouzouki. “There are three albums of (Barra MacNeils) Christmas music, so we usually can’t get all the songs in that people request, but we do our best,” MacNeil said. “There are also some new bits, stories and some levity – and some dancing, of course.” Sister Lucy’s take on traditional favourites continues to win over audiences, he added.
