Join us on Saturday, December 2nd for “A Winter Gift” Music & Stories for the Season Celtic Holiday Harp Concert with Patrick Ball, Lisa Lynne, and Aryeh Frankfurter!

Only 25 tickets left!

This trio is well known for  their first show “Legends of the Celtic Harp” which tells stories and legends of the harp through time. In their new show “A Winter Gift” storyteller and wire-strung harpist Patrick Ball along with harpers and multi-instrumentalists Lisa Lynne & Aryeh Frankfurter step into a magical world of Irish and English literature. The trio presents a heartwarming collection of tales and music from Celtic legend and traditional folk stories. They perform a  Child’s Christmas in Wales, a chapter from The Wind in the Willows, and passages from Shakespeare, William Butler Yeats, and Thomas Hardy, and mingle them with beloved and original pieces of seasonal music. Audiences will hear three Celtic Harps, Swedish Nyckelharpa, Fiddle, Bandura, Bouzouki and more.

Patrick Ball is an American master of the Irish harp and a captivating spoken word artist. He has won national awards in both the music and spoken word categories. Patrick’s critically acclaimed concerts and solo theatrical productions have toured extensively throughout the United States, Canada, Ireland and the UK, and have been awarded grants by the California Arts Council and the Circle of Excellence Award from the National Storytelling Association.

Lisa Lynne is a multi-instrumentalist and performer who has gained worldwide recognition for her original music featuring her Celtic Harp. She is widely acclaimed for composing memorable and heartwarming melodies on the Windham Hill/Sony music labels that have repeatedly placed in the Top 10 & Top 20 on the Billboard New age music charts. Her work in Therapeutic music has gained recognition from NBC, CNN, Fox News Atlanta and numerous newspaper and magazine articles including Wall Street Journal. Lisa was recently selected by Los Angeles Magazine as one of 50 most inspiring women.

Aryeh Frankfurter is also a renowned Celtic harper and world traveling multi- instrumentalist who went from virtuosic progressive rock violin to intricate Swedish folk and Celtic Music. Aryeh taught himself to play a variety of instruments bowed and plucked and most recently the rarely seen Swedish Nyckelharpa. His uncommon approach to the Celtic harp and folk harp repertoire, his numerous critically and commercially successful albums have earned him credit as a musician, recording and performance artist of extraordinary talents and abilities.

  • 26th Annual Robert Burns Supper
    January 20, 2018
    5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us for the 26th Annual Robert Burns Supper for an evening of cultural celebration!

Scots around the globe gather each year to celebrate the birthday of Robert Burns, Scotland’s national poet. The Celtic Arts Foundation marks this festive evening with a dinner honoring the great bard, complete with whisky, poetry readings, highland dance, and–of course–haggis!

In January of 1991, our first formal Robert Burns dinner was held on the campus of Skagit Valley College in Mount Vernon, WA. The ensuing years have witnessed gatherings large and small – always featuring the wonderful music and dance of Scotland. With the construction of the Littlefield Celtic Center in 2015, we have been able to expand this celebration even further.

Robert Burns is one of the best-loved poets of all time. A brilliant satirist who rebelled against the social order, Burns decried any religious thought that condoned inhumanity. He was born into a poor tenant farming family on January 25, 1759 in a cotter’s cottage in Alloway near Ayr, Scotland. Some of his best-known works include “Auld Lang Syne;” “My love is like a Red, Red Rose;” “Tam o’Shanter;” and “To a Mouse.” Much of his work was written in broad Scot’s dialect, which although endears him to Scots the world over, may also somewhat limit his audience. In his short life of some 37 years, Burns also collected and cataloged many folk songs from around Scotland. Every year, Scots and fans of Robert Burns gather in January for a traditional Scottish meal to celebrate the memory of one of Scotland’s great sons. Poems are read, toasts given, and lively music and dance add to the event.

Seating is limited; we encourage those who plan on attending purchase their tickets early. Meals at the Littlefield Celtic Center have historically been sold-out events, so be sure to purchase your tickets early as to not miss out on the fun!

Social hour begins at 5:30pm, with dinner and the program beginning at 6:30pm.

To learn more about Robert Burns, Burns Suppers or poetry, here is a link to the Burns Country website, perhaps the most comprehensive site on Robert Burns.

Traquair House Ale

We are pleased once again this year to feature Traquair House Ale at our Robert Burns Supper!

Traquair House, the oldest inhabited house in Scotland, is located on the banks of the River Tweed and dates back to before 1107 AD, when Alexander I of Scotland signed a royal charter there. It was given to the Stuart family in 1491 and has remained in the same family since then. As did many estates of the era, Traquair operated a house brewery and when Mary Queen of Scots visited in 1566, Traquair was brewing a fine strong ale. Some time after 1800, brewing ceased at Traquair. The original brewery equipment remained on the estate, idle, until the 20th Laird of Traquair, Peter Maxwell Stuart, discovered the recipe and restored the brewery in 1965. The copper brewkettle at Traquair is over 200 years old, and beer is made in the traditional manner – even using oak fermenting vessels, which contribute to the deep, unique character of these beers.

2017 Discount: Take advantage of these savings before they run out! Tickets are only $55 if purchased by December 31st, 2017 at 11:55PM. After that, prices will go up to $60/ticket. Don’t delay, get your today!

About White Horse Coffee & Tea: White Horse Coffee & Tea Company, LLC is a family owned and operated coffee roastery and tea merchant located in Sutherlin, Oregon – in the heart of the Umpqua Valley wine appellation.  We are small-batch roasters and consider our trade an art form. Being a small company, we are able to pick the best of the lots that our green coffee brokers have to offer. Like fine wine, premium coffee varies in characteristics based on climate and soil conditions from year to year. We don’t strive to achieve mass produced mediocre consistency. We strive to bring out the best that the beans have to offer. We start with green coffee suppliers who care about the quality of their offerings. We then bring the green coffee into our home and roast it with care and attention. We love to drink the coffee we produce. We hope you do, also.

Policy Details:

We rely on your attendance to make important arrangements for Winter School, and make every effort to have the experience of each student be a positive one.  Celtic Arts Foundation (CAF) does, however, reserve the right to reschedule or cancel the school due to low enrollment, inclement weather, acts of God, acts of war, curtailment of transportation, or national or local emergencies, or for any other reason deemed sufficient by its Board of Directors.

If for any reason CAF needs to cancel the Winter School program beforehand, participants will be notified at least 14 days prior to the first day of the scheduled workshop and CAF will immediately issue refunds. All deposits, including the registration fee, will be refunded IN FULL if we cancel the school due to low enrollment or instructor scheduling conflicts.

Travel and hotel costs are the responsibility of the attendee. Every effort will be made to present the scheduled seminars at Winter School. However, in the event of a date change or cancellation of any presentation, CAF is not responsible for travel and/or hotel costs incurred by the registrant.  Please do not purchase non-refundable airline tickets or make non-refundable deposits on lodging. In the event Winter School is cancelled, CAF will not be responsible for non-refundable airline tickets or lodging reservations.

If for any reason CAF needs to cancel Winter School while in session, some portion of student’s pre-paid tuition, housing & meal fees may be reimbursed at the discretion of the Board of Directors.

If a participant needs to withdraw from Winter School, he/she must inform CAF in writing (via posted mail or e-mail) by December 31 of the calendar year prior to the upcoming Winter School Session to receive a full refund.  Refunds will not be made for participant no-shows or students who arrive but do not participate in classes or other scheduled activities. Participants withdrawing from Winter School may also choose to put their current registration payment on hold for one year. If for any reason you wish to hold the fee and transfer to next year’s Winter School, please notify us as soon as possible, but at least 20 days before the start of the Winter School. We reserve the right to allow or disallow any transfer. If you do not register for a new workshop within one year, your payment will be forfeited. Winter School registration is also transferable to another individual should you choose to withdraw your registration. Registration credits for the next year are considered payment in full, regardless of any tuition and/or housing price increases.

Any request for withdrawal and refund after December 31 will include a $100 cancellation fee.

-Deliver you to Benaroya Hall in time to enjoy a meal at any of our recommended restaurants, (about 1.5 hrs before the start of the concert – see a dining link on our website) or any other activity of your choice.
