A Swannanoa Solstice

December 18, 2016 • 2:00 p.m. & 7:00 p.m.

Celebrate winter’s allure at this much loved holiday tradition, now in its 14th year. Internationally
renowned recording artists and multi instrumentalists Al Petteway, Amy White, and Robin
Bullock perform a splendid selection of Celtic, Appalachian, Scots-Irish, and world-influenced holiday music on guitars, mandolins, Appalachian dulcimer, Celtic harp, bouzouki, piano, and world percussion. Joining them are four-time Grammy Award-winning musician, storyteller, historian and television host David Holt, nationally acclaimed dancers Phil Jamison and Ellie Grace, Highland bagpiper E.J. Jones and his band, and host Doug Orr, president emeritus of Warren Wilson College and founder of The Swannanoa Gathering. Bring family and friends, share a cup of wassail, and join in the warm merrymaking and quiet contemplation of this Asheville favorite.
