"Sam Pointer's Acoustic Christmas".
A Christmas concert with a twist! Hear light-hearted acoustic versions of
the best holiday songs, played in an intimate setting by a top-notch band. From
a hot jazz jam session on “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” to a soaring flute
rendition of “O Holy Night” - from a sly vocal take on “You’re A Mean One, Mr.
Grinch” to twin mandolins on "Deck the Halls" - this just may be your favorite
holiday music of the year! With jazz/classical flutist
(and host of NPR's Block Party Radio)
Kim Scott, genre-busting mandolinist
Jason Bailey, Alabama Jazz Hall
of Fame upright bassist Roy Yarbrough, and
your host Sam Pointer on acoustic guitar, bouzouki, mandolin, Dixieland banjo,
