Of A Winter's Night is Tony Trischka's acoustic celebration of the holiday season. Based on his 2015 CD release of the same name, recorded at levon Helm's Barn in Woodstock, NY this show features Trishka's considerable melodic inventiveness on a wide variety of seasonal tunes. He turns his inventiveness loose on Bluegrass and Americana music for the holidays.

 Tony will be joined by multi-instrumentalist & shape-note singer Tim Eriksen. Eriksen, a master of Americana music, has also worked closely with T Bone Burnett on the soundtrack for the film Cold Mountain. Trischka also revels in songs long-forgotten and little-known, together Trischka and Eriken put a warm spin on a wealth of festive fare. 

Trischka & Eriksen have invited singer and fearless fiddler Phoebe Hunt to join them. The stark, haunting sound of shape note music is the perfect complement to the music Trischka recorded on his critically acclaimed Rounder Records Glory Shone Around. and the new music he has arranged for this show.

Trischka, Eriksen & Hunt will be joined by Sean Trischka on percussion and vocals, backing this band of extraordinary musicians.

Together they will perform from the 1844 hymnbook Sacred Harp, some of the evening’s songs date back to the Revolutionary era. Other selections range from classics such as “Come All Ye Faithful,” to lesser known tunes like The Pretenders’ “2000 Miles,” and Trischka’s “Christmas Morn”. Old-time holiday fiddle music joins with classically influenced carols. Leadbelly and Woody Guthrie songs are juxtaposed with the hard-driving bluegrass flavor of “Christmas Time’s A’Comin’”. 

Of A Winter's Night will be a diverse, highly textural seasonal collection of music and will take place on Saturday, December 8, 2018 at 7:30 pm as a Folk Project Special Event. This outstanding holiday performance will take place at the Morristown Unitarian Fellowship, 21 Normandy Heights Road in Morristown, the home of The Minstrel, as a Folk Project Special Event. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door (cash or check only).
