The Peninsula Arts Center is a Fair Trade Music venue.

Saturday, December 16th, 4PM – Kathryn Claire’s Winter Songs

Kathryn again brings her annual holiday show to the River City Playhouse.

Winter Songs is a show inspired by the season with music to honor the shortest days and longest nights.  Weaving together songs, instrumentals, traditional and original music and a few covers, Kathryn Claire invites the audience to join together in celebration of the season.  Kathryn Claire has been doing a seasonal winter show since 2013 working with a variety of artists. In 2018, Don Henson joined her for Winter Songs on piano and percussion before incorporating Sid Ditson on violin and viola in 2019.  The blend of this trio is stunning and their energy together is joyful and heartfelt.

Having taken the past two years off due to the pandemic, Kathryn, Sid and Don reunited last year and released an EP featuring music Kathryn wrote specifically for the show along with a single “Dark of December”. This trio is thrilled to be returning to the River City Playhouse for this special seasonal show.
