Enjoy the sounds of the season with the dynamic duo Tammerlin, returning to Bok Tower Gardens on Dec. 15 at 7:30 p.m. in the Visitor Center. Surrounded by Christmas scenery and décor, guests will experience “Wintersong,” a beautiful and eclectic holiday program of ancient and modern carols, poems, readings and songs to delight all ages.
For the past 20 years, Lee Hunter and Arvid Smith have been placing their own stamp on folk/roots music. Exceptional guitar work accompanies well-crafted original songs and traditional tunes pulled from the heart of American music—a little bit pop, country, British Isles and blues—but the centerpiece are the stories that connect us.
“It’s all about evolution,” Hunter says. “Music has never stayed in one place and it’s not going to. Lots of people are doing what we’re doing, but in different ways. We’re taking traditional music and writing inspired by the tradition as well, to a new place, with our own voices and vocabulary and experience, but always with respect for where it came from.”
Tammerlin has performed at Piccolo Spoleto, The Kennedy Center, the Smithsonian Institute and numerous music festivals and concert series throughout the U.S. and Europe. With a sound that is a step off the well-beaten path, Tammerlin’s concerts and six CD recordings have received much critical acclaim and radio airplay worldwide.
“Tammerlin really captures the magic of the season in their performances,” said Jennifer Beam, Director of Visitor Services & Events at the Gardens. “It’s not just music, it’s poems and spoken carols. And there is such an authentic, sweet sound to their music. We love to celebrate Christmas at the Gardens, and music is a natural part of what makes it so special,” Beam said.
The “Wintersong” concert takes place in the Bok Tower Gardens Visitor Center, with general admission seating. Reservations are required; tickets are $25 per person which includes all-day admission to the Gardens, and Bok Tower members receive a 10% discount. The Blue Palmetto Café will remain open until the concert begins at 7:30 p.m., serving light dinner fare, desserts, coffee, beer and wine. For tickets or more information, visit www.boktowergardens.org or call 863-734-1222.
