Of a Winter's Night: A Holiday Celebration with Tony Trischka and Friends on Thursday, December 6

Of a Winter’s Night is legendary five-string banjo artist Tony Trischka's acoustic celebration of the holiday season. Based on his 2015 CD release of the same name, recorded at Levon Helm’s Barn in Woodstock, NY, this show allows Trischka to turn his considerable melodic inventiveness loose on bluegrass and Americana holiday tunes. Joined by multi-instrumentalist and shape-note singer Tim Eriksen, Trischka puts a warm spin on a wealth of festive fare. Eriksen, a master of Americana music, has also worked closely with T Bone Burnett on the soundtrack for the film Cold Mountain. Trischka and Eriksen have invited singer and fearless fiddler Phoebe Hunt to join them. The stark, haunting sound of shape note music is the perfect complement to the music Trischka recorded on his critically acclaimed Rounder Records Glory Shone Around and the new music he has arranged for this show. They are joined by Sean Trischka on percussion and vocals and the backing of a band of extraordinary musicians. A diverse, highly textural seasonal collection, Trischka and Friends revel in songs little known or long forgotten.

Information and details for this event will be sent your way by contacting Sandy at Sandilion49@gmail.com. This venue is located in Manhattan on the Upper West Side.
