Erin “Ebird” Zindle and her group the Ragbirds have hosted this unique family-friendly Christmas concert at the Ark since 2007. The line-up of musical acts changes from year to year, but the spirit of the event is always focused on a communal feeling and a creative sparkle that leaves the audience with an unforgettable experience. This special holiday celebration includes instrumentalists performing original and traditional songs with sounds from all over the world. This year’s special guests include Alex Holycross (The Native Howl), Graham Parsons (The Go Rounds), Carolyn Striho, Anne Heaton, Jamie Register, Mark Lavengood, Jen Sygit, Brad Phillips, and more.
