“Christmas comes but once a year and Golden Bough rings in good cheer,
Families gather one and all to raise their voices in the hall.”
Share the laughter, song, and joy as Golden Bough performs rare versions of Celtic songs of Winter, as well as their unique take on better known Christmas Carols.
Since their inception in 1980, Golden Bough has become a popular and in demand group on both sides of the Atlantic, gaining critical acclaim and enthusiastic support from folk fans wherever they perform. Blending their voices in pristine harmony, Margie Butler, Paul Espinoza and Kathy Sierra back themselves on an array of rare and more common acoustic instruments including Celtic harp, penny-whistle, violin, octave-mandolin, mandolin, accordion, guitar, harmonica, recorder and bodhran. In the recording studio, as well as on stage, Golden Bough captures the essence and joy of traditional folk music and captivates listeners with the uniqueness of their original compositions.
With songs and instrumental pieces ranging from ballads to lively jigs, reels and sing-alongs, Golden Bough provides an atmosphere in which the listener can enjoy unique entertainment within and beyond the boundaries of traditional folk music. Their music is well received and enjoyed by audiences of all ages.
“There is a love of this music by the performers that is obvious. All in all, a great example of how to do something the right way when many are just doing it, period.” Wind & Wire Magazine
