Internationally renowned modern hymn writers and recording artists Keith & Kristyn Getty are set to bring their popular “Joy – An Irish Christmas” Tour to 18 stateside cities this holiday season. Presented in partnership with Compassion International and Redeemer Seminary, the tour will launch November 29 in Louisville, Kentucky. With slated stops in Atlanta; Houston; Orlando, Florida; and Durham, North Carolina, among other cities, the “Joy – An Irish Christmas” Tour will culminate for the second consecutive year at Nashville’s prestigious Schermerhorn Symphony Center December 23.
An evening of beloved carols, modern hymns, and spirited Irish reels and jigs that capture the wonder and beauty of Christmas in Keith & Kristyn Getty’s signature style, the tour is highlighted by the couple’s acclaimed ensemble of top Irish and American folk musicians, including Fionan de Barra of Broadway’s Riverdance, Jeff Taylor (Vince Gill, The Chieftains), and Uilleann piper Patrick D’Arcy, among others. In each city, a combined choir from various local churches will also join the couple and band onstage. Following the concert, the band will present a special encore lobby performance for attendees. A tradition inaugurated last year at select dates, the popular post-concert music sessions, also including Irish dancing, will be featured in all 18 cities this season.
