From the 250-year-old Great Hall in historic Annapolis, Md., the Celtic group Ensemble Galilei performs an enchanting all-instrumental program of holiday music.

Ensemble Galilei is Liz Knowles, fiddle and viola; Deborah Nuse, Scottish small pipes and fiddle; Sue Richards, Celtic harp; Carolyn Anderson, Surrick and viols; and Sarah Weiner, oboe, recorder and tin whistle.

The group's traditional holiday brew of early music from Ireland and Scotland is enhanced on this intimate holiday concert by acclaimed Uilleann piper (Irish bagpiper) Kieran O'Hare. Bonnie Grice hosts.
