Three performances of Christmas, Celtic, and bluegrass music.
The last three years I was one of several soloists and groups playing in December at the Hagood Mill in Pickens. I enjoyed that event a lot, and this program will be something similar. There will be not one performance, but three, with a $12 admission price covering as many of the acts as you would like to attend. If you go to more than one, tips are most appreciated.
4:30 PM to 5:30 PM: Marshall Goers and Lucie Allen/ guitar, vocals, and fiddle They are frequent performers in the area, including several times at the Christmas Hagood Mill event, and at the Saturday downtown market in
Greenville. They will play Christmas and Celtic music, and they are well-known for their Christmas sing-alongs.
5:45 PM to 6:45 PM: Don Shabkie/ solo piano
Just as I did in the programs I played at Hagood Mill, this program will include all the favorite Peanuts Christmas selections. I will also add arrangements of other Christmas and Celtic songs.
7 to 8:15 PM: West End String Band: I am happy to let you know that the West End String Band will return to Darlington Avenue, with their version of a holiday music program. Everyone loved their program here on July 20, and we look forward to hearing them again. If I’m lucky, they’ll let me play with them on a couple of numbers.
