Austin-based Irish band The Here & Now return to Marble Falls on December 14 for the annual “Nollaig: A Celtic Christmas Celebration.”

The concert starts at 7 p.m. at Trinity Episcopal Church, 909 Avenue D. Doors open at 6 p.m. Ticket are $25 and available on the band's website.

The Here & Now will be joined by Celjun, a Louisiana band performing Irish and Cajun music, and the Nollaig Irish Dancers for an evening of Christmas classics and lesser-known Irish holiday songs. In Ireland, where The Here & Now's singer-fiddler Niamh Fahy grew up, people gather wherever they can during the holidays, whether in a pub or someone's home, to play and listen to music featuring the fiddle, guitar, and bodhran.

During the Marble Falls performance, the audience can expect to join in the celebration, including a rousing rendition of “Silent Night.”

A portion of the proceeds from the show will go to The Phoenix Center of Marble Falls, which provides innovative and high-quality mental health care to Highland Lakes children. The funds will be used specifically for the center’s music therapy program, which also offers services at Marble Falls Independent School District campuses.
