Upper Milford Township Building Auditorium, 5671 Chestnut Street, Old Zionsville, PA 18068


Light lilting music with laughter. This lively duo combines harp, mandolin, and guitar with soaring vocals performing many styles of music, perhaps known best for their traditional Celtic programs. One of their passions, however, is Christmas music from every century. They will present the history of Thanksgiving and Christmas Carols through story and song. The Jameson Sisters have performed at hundreds of venues across Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey plus many local concerts as well: Holiday Lights in Wyomissing, Fonthill Christmas Meander in Doylestown, Church of the Holy Spirit in Harleysville, Musicfest and Celtic Classic in Bethlehem to name a few.
