Bill Kirchen's Honky-Tonk Holiday

Event Date: 
Sunday, December 9, 2012 - 8:00pm

Bill Kirchen's Honky-Tonk Holiday Show features seasonal songs from Rock 'n' Roll, Blues, Rhythm and Blues, and Country; forgotten classics from the golden age of country music such as Red Simpson's "Truckin' Trees For Christmas" and Hank Snow's "Reindeer Boogie", Albert King's "Santa Claus Wants Some Lovin'", some Commander Cody stuff like "Dadd'y's Drinkin' Up Our Christmas", original instrumental "Silent Surfin' Night", Jimmy Donnely's "Santa! Don't Pass Me By", and Christmas tunes from Chuck Berry, Merle Haggard, Elvis and much more...

It's not accurate to say that Bill Kirchen plays American roots music. Bill Kirchen IS American roots music, celebrating an American musical tradition where country music draws upon its origins in blues and bluegrass, and in the Western swing of Texas and California honky tonks. A Kirchen performance recalls a half century of guitar legends and extends their brilliance into the new millenium.
