With a sold-out and then-some show many years running, Byrdcliffe’s annual Winter Solstice tradition continues this holiday season. Happy Traum & Friends will perform on Saturday, December 17, 8:00 pm at the Woodstock Playhouse. Every year, Happy brings in the region’s best-known musicians to play in the spirit of community and creativity. This year’s performers are:
Pat Alger – Nashville songwriter, guitarist, original member of the Woodstock Mountains Revue
Darol Anger and Emy Phelps – A collaborative duo of fiddler and singer-songwriter, with deeply affecting results
Cindy Cashdollar – Woodstock’s own queen of the slide guitar
Zach Djanikian – Multi-instrumentalist, singer, backup musician with Amos Lee and others
Paul Rishell & Annie Raines – Traditional blues power duo and longtime Solstice favorites
Eugene Ruffolo – NY studio singer, songwriter, guitarist
John Sebastian – Lovin’ Spoonful leader, hit songwriter and groove-master extraordinaire
Proceeds from the event support the ongoing work of the Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild as a center for the arts in the Hudson Valley.
