Rufus Wainwright & Martha Wainwrights - A Not So Silent Night is a family Christmas show with a lot of special guests.
Rufus and Martha Wainwright have invited some of Ireland’s most loved and exciting artists to join them for their special festive celebration concerts.
Songwriter Paul Brady, Conor O’Brien of Villagers, folk singer Lisa O'Neill and Irish-Sierra Leonean singer, Loah come together with Rufus, Martha and family for this event. Musical Director for the evening will be Dan Gillespie Sells of The Feeling.
The shows are a Wainwright/McGarrigle family Christmas tradition that have their deepest roots with the sisters Kate, Anna, and Jane McGarrigle singing Christimas carols and songs with their father Frank and mother Gaby.
Rufus and Martha along with many who are working on this show are donating their services. The profits from these concerts will go towards the Kate McGarrigle Fund supporting sarcoma research and a music therapy program for cancer patients to be launched by Martha Wainwright in conjunction with Stand Up To Cancer Canada.
