All are welcome to attend Dave Holodiloff's Annual "Enchanted Winter" Christmas concert at the Lab Arts in Carmel, CA on Friday Dec. 22nd at 7pm. Dave's signature soulful and energetic mandolin style will be in full effect with an amazing band including Carmel Valley's own fiddle wiz kid Peter Mellinger, Santa Cruz jazz guitar ace Lex Olsen, and Monterey's Bill Sullivan holding the groove down on the upright bass.
In addition to Dave's "usual" repertoire of Originals, Celtic, Latin, Balkan, Folk, and Gypsy, the evening's repertoire will lean towards classic Christmas carols and songs of the season featured on Dave's "Enchanted Winter" album. Sometimes simple and straight to the heart and sometimes re-harmonized, funked up, jazzed up, and mashed up, this is holiday music like you've never heard before....featuring the mandolin!
Get ready for a wild acoustic holiday adventure from Bluegrass to Bach to Balkan and back to the Barnyard! Don't miss what is sure to be a high energy and intimate evening of quality acoustic entertainment for all ages to enjoy!
In honor of the season of giving, Dave will be sponsoring a free raffle to all free merch, CDs, and more just for showing up! Additionally, the band will be offering year end closeout specials on select CDs and merchandise (great idea for a holiday gift or stocking stuffer)!
Hope to see you at this annual night of magic and music! Save on advance tickets here:
