In the weeks leading up to Christmas, Camden bursts into song. This year, December 14 seems to be THE night to select among many great options for holiday music in Midcoast Maine. So why not book a stay today and come tap your toes, sway, or sing along to your chosen melody. Here are three shows we can highly recommend:
Three Great Options for Holiday Music in Midcoast Maine
A Jazzy Christmas, Rockport Opera House, 7:00 pm — Swing through the songs of the holidays with twin brothers Peter & Will Anderson. Juilliard graduates and virtuosos on clarinet and saxophone, this dynamic duo leads a jazz sextet performing traditional holiday favorites, including Let it Snow, Christmas Time is Here, White Christmas, Linus and Lucy, and The Christmas Song. Inquire about tickets.
An Irish Christmas, Camden Opera House, 7:30 pm — Music, spoken word, and much more feature in this unforgettable night with Irish band Lúnasa and special guest Ashley Davis. This is the last night of their holiday tour, so expect the room to be (as the kids say) LIT! Purchase tickets.
Lula Wiles, Strand Theater, Rockland 7:30 — If non-stop Christmas music is NOT your thing, this Boston-based roots trio blend mastery of compelling folk music with sharp, provocative song writing. Their harmony is both haunting and sweet. Purchase tickets.
