Kelly Willis & Bruce Robison: 10pm
This is a limited seating concert with chairs set up on the dance floor. All seating will be first come, first serve.For years, Kelly Willis and Bruce Robison have celebrated Christmas with a string of jolly holiday shows around their home state of Texas. With a set list that is divided among their individual regular set lists and holiday material, Kelly and Bruce enjoy the laid back atmosphere of the show and the kindness that the Christmas season brings to the fans. For Christmas tunes, Willis turns in a cozy and beautiful interpretation of “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”, while Robison straddles the line of serious and irreverent with “Daddy Don’t Get Drunk This Christmas”. These tunes and more are available on their album “Happy Holidays”, an expanded reissue of their EP of the same title. This album captures the jovial (and sometimes sultry) spirit of the holidays, and does precisely what the best Christmas albums have always done: reinterpret, revive, and refresh the tradition, while remaining intensely musical.
