A new Baroque tradition

Featuring Steven Player, with Bjarte Eike, violin, and Emi Ferguson, flute and voice

Directed by Bill Barclay

From whence comes our American Christmas tradition? Wassailing is ancient – it has variously meant welcoming, drinking, singing along, giving alms, or celebrating them all at once with a special mulled drink: the wassail! Bjarte Eike, Steven Player, and Emi Ferguson lead us on a merry merging of music and myth, creating a vibrant new tradition that deepens our roots to our antic past. Come sing, laugh, and recall a younger time when the nights were long, the frost was deadly, and pagan spirits and holy saints mingled in harmony. This performance will include refreshments.
