Windham Hill: A Winter Solstice Concert

  • November 27, 2016 at 7:00 pm

Merchant Hall

Come rejoice in the joy and tranquility of the approaching winter season with masterful performances by these three leading musicians from Windham Hill. This premier recording label has introduced many of today's most accomplished acoustic, classical, and folk artists, and this ensemble represents some of its finest. Multiple Grammy Award nominee Liz Story is one of the foremost pioneers of contemporary solo piano whose work crosses many musical genres. Grammy-nominated singer and multi-instrumentalist Barbara Higbie is a folk, jazz, pop, and fusion singer-songwriter, especially noted for her highly melodic piano performances. They are joined by guitarist Sean Harkness who "sounds at times like a one-man orchestra" (Jersey Jazz). From "Carol of the Bells" to "Greensleeves," they perform beloved carols and winter songs from diverse traditions that celebrate the holiday season, filling your season with warmth and love.
