Celebrating its 15th anniversary, the Ebird and Friends Holiday Show has become known for connecting audiences with stellar artists in the Michigan music community. This year’s featured performers are Tunde Olaniran, Emilee Petersmark, Timothy Monger, Chris Dupont, and Kylee Phillips.
Four performances of this festive revue will occur December 8th through 10th. Produced by Erin Zindle, the singer, songwriter & multi-instrumentalist of Erin Zindle & the Ragbirds, this concert series has become the most warm-hearted way to begin the holiday season. Comedienne, businesswoman, and life-coach Shelly Smith will emcee the proceedings and introduce the top talent of our region. Each bandleaders in their own right: vocals by Jen Sygit and Jess Merritt; strings by Brad Phillips, Aaron Jonah Lewis, Jona Vibrato, and Mark Lavengood; brass by Ross Huff, Tim Haldeman and Terry Kimura; the rhythm section comprising Brennan Andes, Jon Brown, and Dan Piccolo; all of whom appear alongside The Ragbirds: Erin Zindle, Loren Kranz, TJ Zindle, and Shannon Wade.
This unique concert showcases a creative approach to seasonal music, old chestnuts, deep cuts, and original tunes from a wide range of genres and traditions. These songs bring us in from the cold and connect us in the spirit of the season.
