Tony Trischka's 'Glory Shone Around'

When: Sat., Dec. 5, 8 p.m. 2015

While there’s something nice about hearing the same old reliable Christmas songs every year, there’s nothing wrong with putting a twist on tradition. Inspired by his 1995 album Glory Shone Around: A Christmas Collection, venerable banjo player Tony Trischka and friends hit the stage, adding a healthy dose of twang to the sounds of the season. The program “Glory Shone Around” is a one-of-a-kind tour through holiday compositions by way of banjo-driven bluegrass and Americana styles channeled through an ensemble of shape-note singers and multi-instrumentalists. Listeners can expect a festive sampling ranging from old-time fiddle tunes to classically influenced carols.

Price: $20-25.
