Free Dan Zanes and Friends (Holiday Open House) Performance

December 8, 2017 @ 7:15 pm

| Free

Irving Arts Center’s annual Holiday Open House concludes with a free (first come, first served) performance from Grammy-award-winning artist, Dan Zanes and Friends!

Zanes occupies a unique place in American music where sea shanties, English music hall, North American and West Indian folk music, holiday favorites, the spirit of early rock-and-roll and soulful originals collide. With his band, Dan Zanes and Friends, the traveling troubadour performs an impressive array of music with instrumentation and inspiration borrowed from all corners of the Earth.  For his holiday performances, Zanes leads a globe-trotting journey that even Santa would find impressive. Songs from Tunisia, Korea, Puerto Rico, Wales and Mexico will be performed in a sensory-friendly setting* along with traditional Hanukah and Christmas favorites during the free, all-ages holiday sing-along December 8. 

Please note – tickets  for Dan Zanes and Friends will be available while supplies last and may be picked up at the Carpenter Box Office on 12/8 beginning at 5:30 p.m. Advanced tickets/reservations are NOT available. Doors will open at 6:45 and seating is first come, first served! Zanes will perform at 7:30 with a brief ceremony to reveal the winners of the celebrity tree judging at 7:15!
