Dancer, singer, and musician Nic Gareiss partners with  The Robin Theatre to present a solo hourlong feast of music and movement  centering winter, solstice, and Yule. Wintersong combines traditional  tunes and step dance from Ireland, Canada, and Appalachia with seasonal  songs and ballads. This performance will be streamed live from the Robin  stage and into your living rooms, offering an evening of sound and  gesture to kindle warmth during the shortest days of the year.

Named  by Dance Magazine as one of 2019's "25 to Watch," dancer and musician  Nic Gareiss has been hailed by the New York Times for his "dexterous  melding of Irish and Appalachian dance" and called "the most inventive  and expressive step dancer on the scene” by the Boston Herald. 

A  child of the folk revival, Gareiss grew up being dragged to folk festivals (against his will at the time!) in the Midwest. At these  events Nic learned Appalachian, Irish, English and Canadian step dance  surrounded by fiddlers, banjo-players, balladeers and folksingers. This  mix of traditional music, song, and movement from rural places has  become the heart of Nic's creative work as a performer. Nic has earned  numerous accolades including a Canadian Folk Music Award nomination for  traditional singer of the year and the Michigan Heritage Award, the  state's highest distinction bestowed on traditional artists. He has  performed in sixteen countries with many of the luminaries of  traditional music and dance at London's Barbican Centre, the Irish  National Concert Hall, the Munich Philharmonic, and the Kennedy Center.  Always jubilant, often puckishly queer, Nic Gareiss has emerged as one  of the most beloved young masters of traditional dance and music.
