The Grammy Award-winning Turtle Island Quartet joins forces with iconic, acoustic fingerstyle guitarist Leo Kottke in a joyous voyage through world holiday music. The collaboration
honors the musicians’ ancestral roots by showcasing the Jewish music and Hindu traditions of the Festival of Lights. From the songs of Chanukah, to the music of India’s Diwali, to the old English carols and Scottish reels of the 16th century, the concert explores, with a hip, modern twist, the timeless music that has been an integral part of winter holiday celebrations for centuries. Also included are new takes on seasonal classics by Vince Guaraldi, Miles Davis and others. Leo Kottke appears by special arrangement with Monterey Peninsula Artists/Paradigm.
