2016 Concerts & Tickets

Tony Trischka

Friday, Dec. 23, 2016 • 8pm (7:30 doors) • $20

How Many?

December 23 - Of A Winter’s Night is Tony Trischka’s banjo-driven celebration of the season.

Drawn from his critically acclaimed Rounder Records release Glory Shone Around, Tony turns his considerable melodic inventiveness loose on Bluegrass and Americana music for the holidays. This performance expands on Tony’s repertoire to include new music and arrangements from his 2014 album Of A Winter’s Night, which was recorded live at Levon Helm’s Barn, Woodstock, NY. Joined by multi-instrumentalist & shape-note singer Tim Eriksen, Trischka also revels in songs long-forgotten and little-known. Trischka and Eriksen put a warm spin on a wealth of festive fare. Tim, also an ethnomusicologist who worked closely with T Bone Burnett on the soundtrack for the film Cold Mountain, has invited shape note singer and fearless fiddler Zoe Darrow to join them. The stark, haunting sound of shape note music is the perfect complement to the music that Tony has written and arranged. They will be joined by Tony’s protégés and guests.  Old-time holiday fiddle music joins with classically influenced carols. Leadbelly and Woody Guthrie songs are juxtaposed with hard-driving bluegrass. This will be a highly textural seasonal collection and truly a sumptuous feast for the ears presented as only Tony Trischka can.


A “celebration of Americana, sometimes lively, sometimes stately,” (Washington Post)
