About this Event
Presented by The 8th Step
The weather outside is frightful, but Sing Solstice is so delightful! On Winter Solstice - the shortest day and longest, darkest night of the year, come spend an evening with international touring artists Kim & Reggie Harris, Terry Leonino & Greg Artzner (Magpie) for a knockout musical celebration of the Season of Light that inspired such Midwinter celebrations as Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hannukah, Yule and more in cultures around the world. Welcome the gradual lengthening of days that will begin at dawn, December 22nd - its Midwinter. It’s Mother Nature’s New Year!
The enormously talented foursome creates a transcendent, often otherworldly sound with stunning harmonies & instrumentals, alternately powerful, touching, funny & charming. Who better to greet the light?
Significant in early times, the Solstice was viewed as a mystical omen of hope. It was a reminder that even our darkest days inevitably give way to light - especially meaningful in view of Washington, global warming, Covid and people in distress at home, at our border, and around the world.
The longest, darkest night of the year will soon break into a new dawn, lighting our way to Spring and Summer: fertility, new growth and rejuvenation, second chances. Tune in wherever you are for laughs, harmonies…light!
