– via Barrymore Theatre: For the past two winter seasons, local folk musicians, headed by Anna Vogelzang, have banded together to present Wintersong, an all-ages holiday show to benefit Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin. In 2013 alone—thanks to a sold-out crowd at the Majestic Theater—over $2,500 was raised, providing 7,545 meals for families and individuals who struggle with hunger. Since 2012, Wintersong has raised 10,200 meals to help end hunger in southwestern Wisconsin.

The public is invited to join musicians Anna Vogelzang, Count This Penny, Corey Hart, Paul Otteson & Faux Fawn, Whitney Mann, Crane Your Swan Neck, and Dietrich Gosser as the band of merrymakers cover holiday tunes, perform seasonal group numbers, and raise donations for Second Harvest Foodbank in this fun-filled event’s third year.

The concert, presented by Majestic Live & the Barrymore Theatre, will take place at the Barrymore Saturday December 13, 2014 at 8PM. This event is generously supported by the Isthmus, Wisconsin Public Radio, Furthermore Beer and WORT.

Guests will also hear from Dan Stein, Second Harvest’s President/CEO. A raffle with prizes from many localbusinesses, including the grand prize of a $300 dinner at L’Etoile Restaurant, will be held during the evening as well.

A night of solo, acoustic performers descends upon the Dragonfly Lounge – Liv Mueller, Milwaukee songstress, will grace us with acoustic guitar & vocals, as will Madison resident Chris Plowman.  BCG will perform a solo set on 7 string Guqin & 21 string Guzheng Chinese zithers.  Promising to pair nicely with touring musician Sean Gaskell‘s set on 21 string Kora, a West African harp.  Kora music is traditionally beholden to a dazzling display of dexterity.  With swirling sequences of vorticose triplets by flam-ing fingers – Gaskell nails the core of this joyous sound.

Two 21-string harps from two different continents in one night – excited yet?
