PTC Resident Lisa Kelly at The Fred This Saturday

By Nancy Price, Executive Director Peachtree City CVB

Peachtree City is very proud of resident Lisa Kelly. The multi-platinum selling recording artist, singer, and actor hails from Dublin, Ireland, and is best known worldwide for her performances with Irish music phenomenon Celtic Women. 

Lisa Kelly at The Fred
Since moving to Peachtree City several years ago, she has opened the Lisa Kelly Voice Academy as well as the newly formed Dance Academy. Members of both, along with special international guests Paul Byron and Chloe Agnew, will join Lisa for her second concert at the Frederick Brown Jr. Amphitheater this year—the Lisa Kelly Celtic Christmas Concert. 

It is certain the hometown will turn out this Saturday evening for the concert, but we expect guests from far and wide who have enjoyed Celtic Women over the years to travel to Peachtree City to join us for this spectacular holiday program. The weather promises to be chilly but clear for this open air event. 

Special guests will perform with Lisa in the Celtic Christmas Concert.

There are still tickets available for the concert. If you are coming from out of town, there are rooms available at our hotels and conference centers, numerous locally owned and national chain restaurants, and shops galore to make it a real holiday weekend for you and your family. 

The gate opens at 3pm, and the concert begins at 4pm. For more information about tickets or the concert, visit or call The Fred box office at 770-631-0630. For information about where to stay and what to do in Peachtree City, visit the CVB website at
