The Front Porch Orchestra’s Bluegrass Nutcracker
Dreading another season of canned Christmas music? Come get in the spirit with a sizzling, bluegrass-steeped, bar-for-bar rendition of Tchaikovsky’s Christmas Classic! This one-of-a-kind performance combines Tchaikovsky’s iconic music with a comic retelling of ETA Hoffman’s classic Christmas story, “The Nutcracker”. You’ll hear 17 movements of The Nutcracker Ballet played bar-for-bar on banjo, mandolin, violin, viola, two guitars, bass and percussion. Before each movement, a “Twas the Night Before Christmas” style narrator tells bits of the story laced with campy commentary.
