The 29th Annual Christmas Revels:
An American Journey

This year’s Revels opens in the 1930s where our protagonist meets a mystery man who sends him on a journey east to Appalachia, south through the bayous of Louisiana, north to the mid-Atlantic states and finally westward ho to California! It’s a crazy quilt of many colors creating the fabric of the holiday traditions we still share. Filled with Cajun music, Appalachian clogging, old folk tales and holiday rituals that some will remember being passed down from our parents or grandparents, the 2014 Christmas Revels will see a return to familiar American carols and folksongs, toe-tapping music and of course, plenty of laughter.

Featured performers include Rene Collins last seen in the 2000 Christmas Revels, Kevin Carr (2010) and Tristan Cunningham (2012) along with Revels regulars Shira Kammen, James Galileo and new introducing a new musical guest Euphonia featuring Sylvia Herold.
