Fairfield has always had a strong representation when it comes to the Irish population and lovers of Irish culture. As such, it's no surprise that the Edgerton Center is hosting a show called An Irish Christmas, putting a Gaelic spin on the usual holiday festivities. Performers include actors, musicians and storytellers like Ciaran Sheehan, Eilin O'Dea, John V. Shea and the John Whelan Band. Pictured is Jerry O'Sullivan who will blow the Uilleann pipes, an accomplished bagpiper who's performed on over 90 albums.
Edgerton Center for the Performing Arts, Sacred Heart University, 5151 Park Ave., Fairfield, (203) 374-2777. Sat., Dec. 8, 8 p.m. $10-$25. edgertoncenter.org.
