The Boister solstice shows have become something of a tradition at An Die Musik Live. Anne Watts, Craig Considine, Warren Boes, Lyle Kissack, Chas Marsh, John Dierker, Jim Hannah, Glenn Workman, and Watts' daughter Posie Lewis -- the all-star Baltimore mainstay of chamber pop -- offers up a festive assortment of raucous and delicate tunes from their repertoire, as well as twists on holiday classics from Joni Mitchell to Tchaikovsky.
Carrot cake from the Eastern Shore's Bay Country Bakery, presents, and giveaways included. It's hard to have a blue Christmas after this show!
