Touchstone had the honor to host the 2022 SouthSide Tree Lighting on their Barrio Stage on Saturday, early evening. I was asked to play some holiday songs and share the stage with folks from Touchstone’s Christmas City Follies. Mercifully, it was relatively warm (~50 degrees). I set up with a mike and direct box, and started with We Are Welcomed and a Christmas tune. The Chamber of Commerce woman welcomed folks, I played a few more tunes (including Zat You, Santa Claus) and Touchstone’s cast did a short engagement with the folks gathered in the lower parking lot.

There were only a few kids in the crowd but lots of familiar community faces. I finished up with a short set of other holiday tunes, packed up and headed for my gig at Godfrey’s.
