Join the Music on Christmas Eve!

7:30pm Service Music is Off the Beaten Path!

Following up on the splendor of the “guitar band” numbers in last year’s service, our 7:30pm service music will be entirely that kind of stuff rather than choir, and we want you to be part of it! We have a fabulous guitar/mandolin/banjo/dobro duo (from Cambridge band Best Ever Chicken) to support us, one of the songs will be Josh Ritter’s “Joy To You Baby” but let’s include folk/jazz/indie/pop/rock and a cappella songs that you’d like to do, with guitars, ukes, drums, keys, bass, strings, winds, and plenty o’ voices. Rehearsal on Sunday Dec 22 or Monday Dec 23, depending on everyone’s availability. Be in touch with Vivian soon to say you’re in and to suggest songs. Really looking forward to this! Contact Vivian Montgomery at
