Katie McMahon Visits The Northland With Dancing, Singing, And Storytelling At Mitchell Auditorium This Friday

Katie McMahon is bringing her high powered Christmas Show to CSS Mitchell Auditorium this Friday. Katie will be joined by 22 performers to celebrate the season with carols, stories and dances from Ireland and all over the world. This show is family friendly and children are particularly welcome.

Katie McMahon is probably best known for her exquisite soaring soprano solo in the original Riverdance single. Before her work in Riverdance Katie, a born and bred Dubliner, was classically trained in voice and harp and studied Italian and Drama Studies in Trinity College. During a break from her studies, Katie joined the vocal group Anuna and is a featured soloist on their first two CDs.

She has formed her own band and troupe of Irish dancers. They are in great demand all over the States and play Irish traditional music with a Classical edge. Two of the many celebrities who have enjoyed Katie’s performances are President Clinton and Bono (U2), who pulled her aside afterwards and kindly told her that she had “an amazing voice”.

She has released five critically acclaimed solo CDs: After the Morning, Shine, Celtic Christmas, St. Patrick’s Day and Christmas Angels which are available in the States and from this site (just click on Music).

Recently, Katie was awarded best folk and acoustic artist by the Minnesota Music Academy. She has also been touring the world with the group Secret Garden as their lead singer & harpist. In 2009 she was nominated as one of the Top 75 Women of Influence in the Irish America Community by the Irish Voice.

Katie lives in Minneapolis with her husband and two young children.

Join Katie this Friday at Mitchell Auditorium at 7:30 pm for a Christmas show you won’t forget.
