Govannen Celtic Christmas (Paradise Music) The instruments are authentic, the acoustic expansive, and the arrangements a curious case of Celtic Homeland meets New Age spaciness, with some lively drumming, clapping, and thigh-slapping energy thrown in for very good measure. The closing hybrid of Celtic dancing meets "Jingle Bells" is a hoot. Jason Victor Serinus Bay Area Reporter 12/2013
