Christine and The Kilts
Christine and The Kilts

Christine and The Kilts are back by popular demand, and will once again bring a feast of Celtic songs to the Cape this festive season at the Masque Theatre.

With Irish jigs, Scottish reels, contemporary Celtic favourites, and songs by Robbie Burns, Christine and The Kilts boast a toe-tapping repertoire that will inspire and delight Celtic music lovers.

Soaring harmonies are a “given” with singer Christine Weir of Not the Midnight Mass fame at the helm of this show, and with the nimble fiddle playing by Rayelle Goodman, traditional Celtic accordion by Leon Oosthuizen, Matthew Weir on bass and vocals, Duncan Robinson on acoustic guitar and Skhumbuzo Qamata on percussion, this is an evening of Celtic song at its best. There is also some nifty staging by choreographer, Fiona du Plooy.

Get into the festive spirit with them! Put on your kilt, strut your tartan and join in with hits like “Whisky in the Jar”, “Mull of Kintyre”, “Charlie is my Darling” and “Danny Boy”, in a “guid” foot-stomping evening of Irish and Scottish song.

They are at the Masque Theatre for 10 shows only, from Thursday 27 December to Saturday 5 January, with matinees at 14:30 on Saturday 29 to Monday 31 December and Saturday 5 January.

On Monday 31 December there is a special early New Year’s Eve matinee show for the elderly or for those who want to avoid the streets that night.

The show will finish off by having a wee dram and singing “Auld Lang Syne”.
