Danny O'Flaherty and Noel Nash Irish balladeer duo The Celtic Sons – Danny O’Flaherty and Noel Nash – share their heritage through music, song, dance and storytelling at the sixth annual Celtic Christmas Concert. The concert will be held at 2 p.m. on Dec. 8, 2013 at the University of St. Thomas Jones Hall, 3910 Yoakum Blvd.

O’Flaherty and Nash will celebrate the customs of Christmas in Ireland, Wales, Scotland and other Celtic areas.

O’Flaherty has performed at UST numerous times since his first performance in 2006. Nash performed with O’Flaherty at the 2012 Celtic Christmas Carols event.
