Winter's Eve with Lady of the Lake

St. Paul's Episcopal Church, 1430 J St., Sacramento, CA 95814

In their annual Winter's Eve concert, Celtic-influenced band Lady of the Lake recognizes the renewal of the soul and celebrates the fire of light and life as we approach the Winter Solstice.

Lisa, Michael, Cameron and Liam Lawson are joined by Cathie Apple to perform instrumental music and epic songs, highlighting cello, violin, and flute against rhythm guitar and drums and the sounds of harp and keyboard. Traditional favorites such as The Red-Haired Boy and The Water is Wide are interwoven with the Lawsons' originals, including settings of poetry by Yeats, and tunes inspired by their own lives. Their musical influences include Loreena McKennitt, Solas, Lunasa, Secret Garden, Mirabai Ceiba, and Eugene Friesen. As they are also performers of historical music, with Sacramento Baroque Soloists, the group enjoys bringing in the colors of old instruments and styles.
