Being a part of the Ebird & Friends holiday show serves as a powerful reminder of why I love this Michigan music community so much. Especially in the midst of these troubling times where the cynicism & troubles of the world are so clear and present, that love & gratitude runs particularly deep. A shared culture of joyful collaboration, mutual respect, loving friendship, and commitment to community is such an inspiring spirit to be in the midst of.

This year's Ebird & Friends shows kicked off last night at The Ark in Ann Arbor. So many highlights to mention but here's a few behind the scenes moments captured from my Santa/stage manager view as well as a few beautiful pictures of the show from Fred Ellert.
Tonight's show is sold out but a few tickets still are available for Saturday's two shows.
