Celebrate the winter solstice with instrumental music, songs and poetry. Stanley and Kip Greenthal, with special guests Jamie Laval and Christos Govetas will perform spirited instrumentals with traditional and original songs of the season. Internationally acclaimed songwriter and instrumentalist Stanley Greenthal stretches musical borders from Scotland, Ireland and Brittany to Greece and the Balkans. He sings and plays guitar, bouzouki, laouto and lavta (Greek and Turkish lutes), while Kip Greenthal adds harmony vocal and percussion. Sparked by Jamie’s soulful, fiery violin playing, and Christos's hypnotic clarinet and oud, Scottish pipe marches, Breton round dances, and Cretan syrtos create a blazing solstice hearth for this unique winter evening.
