The Christmas Revels: An American Celebration of the Winter Solstice
After traveling the world the past few seasons, the 49th annual Christmas Revels finds us at home, here in America, with a special production set in the dustbowl decade of the 1930’s. Through narrative, music, dance, and song this year’s family-friendly holiday celebration explores and caresses the diversity of American culture, with bluegrass and Appalachian running sets, gospel and spirituals, Second Line brass music, Shaker melodies and Shape-Note hymns, Georgia Sea Islands play songs, and the raw power of the blues. Expect crackerjack dancers, amazing musicians, beguiling children, raucous mummers, and the glorious sound of our Revels chorus. We hope you can join us this holiday season. Pack your bindle and let’s hit the road!
