Cris Williamson is coming to Port Townsend to do a fun holiday concert on Saturday, Dec. 12th at 7pm (doors open at 6:30pm), at Quimper Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 2333 San Juan Ave.

This note from Cris: "Holidays are always better if there is music at the heart of it all. This Holiday show, all heart, all music, features original reflections upon this Season, and also, hung like lights so bright, so familiar, are some traditional pieces associated with these winter festivities, songs from yesteryear, as well as more modern and lyrical songs from yesterday and today. Please join us as we listen together to the heartbeat of winter."
"Please tell your friends and family, and, no matter what holiday you celebrate, join us on Saturday, December 12, for a spirited celebration of the Holidays. Gather with us now as the dark days of winter approach the coming Light."
