Roan Mountain State Park will host an Old Christmas Ceili January 6 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the park conference center.
A new holiday event, an Irish ceili is a traditional social gathering that often includes traditional dance, music, storytelling, and all kinds of good fun. In honor of the region’s Scotch-Irish heritage, the park will host a holiday-themed dance ceili.
Highlights of the evening will include ceili dances. No previous dance experience is required. These dances are meant for regular people and anyone who can walk comfortably can enjoy learning them.
There will also be traditional music. The Roan Mountain Ceili Band will play a variety of dance tunes to accompany the dances, and a few other tunes in between.
Also, there will be light refreshments of coffee and hot cocoa as well as an assortment of holiday treats.
This is a ticketed event. Adults 18 years and older, $5 each; children 17 and younger, $2.
