If you're a fan of Rufus or Martha Wainwright, you'll be aware that every year, they hold a special Christmas concert.

Their 'A Not-So-Silent Night' gigs raise money for cancer charity The Kate McGarrigle Fund, named in honour of their late mother. It sees them invite friends, family and other musical collaborators on stage for unique one-off shows.

This year, their Christmas concerts will take place at Dublin's National Concert Hall on December 2nd and 3rd. The guests for the gigs have been announced and include several names familiar to Irish audiences.

Paul Brady and Conor O'Brien (Villagers) will join the Wainwrights on both nights. Cavan folk singer Lisa O'Neill and soul-pop singer Loah will also perform with them, alongside their sister Lucy Wainwright Roche.

The musical director, meanwhile, will be The Feeling's Dan Gillespie Sells.

There are numerous special packages available for fans, too - including the opportunity to sing on stage as part of a choir, the chance to sit in on rehearsals, the afterparty and more.

Tickets for both gigs, meanwhile, are on sale from nch.ie now.
