The Well, a congregation of Hancock Church, will celebrate a Celtic Christmas on Sunday, December 18th at noon. Joining the resident River Rock Band will be Celtic musicians Shannon and Matt Heaton. Together they will play traditional Celtic songs and carols with Celtic twists.

The Heatons have been regular guest musicians at the church fro the past 5 years, and are featured on the River Rock Band’s debut album Drawn From the Well, that was released this fall. With engaging stage presence and masterfully-crafted music, Boston-based Matt & Shannon Heaton offer well-travelled Irish music from the heart. Steeped in sessions in County Clare and brewed in the acoustic music scenes of  Chicago and Boston, their flute/guitar/bouzouki instrumentals and sweet husband-and-wife harmony singing draw deeply from the Irish tradition.The award winning duo are poised, passionate American performers with Irish roots and universal appeal. They are comfortable onstage and have a warm connection with their audiences. They move listeners with their love of traditional music (and each other), and their sense of adventure and fun in exploring new directions and possibilities.

Worship at The Well is informal and interactive. Everyone is welcome, regardless of faith, race, gender, or sexual orientation. It is a safe space for all, with communion, joys, and concerns shared each week.
