Celtic Christmas at Beaches Museum & History Park

The three troubadours are coming together again for their Annual Celtic Christmas Concert Tour of the Gulf States, finishing up this year in Jacksonville Beach. The Celtic Christmas at Beaches Museum & History Park is a seasonal combination of three fine traditional Celtic musicians. Come together for a night of Irish and Scottish year-end revelry and remembrance! The concert will be held at the Beaches Chapel on Monday, December 21, 2015. Two performances will be held, with the first beginning at 7 pm and the event running until 9:30 pm. This event is part of the Beaches Museum’s ongoing Chapel Concert series and is generously supported by the Gasper and Irene Lazzara Charitable Foundation.


Ed Miller of Edinburgh, Scotland will be on vocals and guitar. Miller first came to the USA “for a year or so” to do graduate work at the University of Texas. Over 40 years later, he is still in the Austin area and travels throughout North America entertaining and educating audiences with his wonderful songs and droll stories.


Joining Ed Miller is Jil Cambless on vocals, flute and whistle and Don Penzien on vocals, guitar, and bodhran.. Originally from Montgomery, AL, Jil now resides in Tuscaloosa and has played an active role in the Celtic music scene for more than 20 years. Don Penzien is the founding member of the powerhouse Irish traditional band Legacy. Don’s work on dadgag guitar provides solid driving rhythms. The three troubadours promise to bring a delightful, family-friendly evening of Celtic songs, tunes, and tales.
