Born in the deep South, Carter Freeman gained an early appreciation for the sound of old acoustic Blues, Folk, and Jazz tunes. He quickly developed a deeply seeded love for the life that seems to spring forth from these recordings. Carter’s music tends to encompass these styles. Be the song moody, humorous, or somewhere within the middle ground, Freeman’s songs seem based out of a reality that he has experienced somewhere along the way. No cover.

Geoffrey Castle’s Celtic Christmas
Date & Time: 12/21     7-9pm
Location: Leavenworth Festhalle; 1001 Front Street
Info: 509-548-7539
Fee: $40-$100

Now a Holiday Tradition, the Christmas season just won’t be the same without a visit from the Geoffrey Castle’s Celtic Christmas Celebration. This major production features the fiery fiddle of violin virtuoso Geoffrey Castle, energetic beautiful Celtic dancing with The Seattle Irish Dance Company Dancers, The Geoffrey Castle Celtic Band, Guitarist and Irish Tenor Dan Connolly, and singing sensation and former Miss Kirkland Emily McIntosh. Geoffrey Castle has been playing the violin since he was eight years old, emerging today as the preeminent pioneer on the six-string electric violin. When not performing locally and around the world, Castle volunteers his time encouraging school orchestras to keep on playing. “Basically, this show is all about the magic of Christmas and a time that predates the commercialized Christmas of today,” says Castle. “Be ready to be transported back to the Misty Isles.”

Join us for the most wonderful time of the year, when our quaint Bavarian town becomes a Village of Lights (over half a million of them!) and holiday cheer abounds!  On Saturdays and Sundays, the festivities kick into full gear at 12:00pm with the arrival of Santa and costumed holiday characters in a march from the Festhalle to the Gazebo! Throughout the day enjoy musical performances in the Front Street Gazebo, carolers strolling through town, the smell of roasted chestnuts filling the air, sledding in Front Street Park (snow permitting), a traditional Glühwein Tent (selling hot spiced wine and cocoa) and costumed Christmas characters.  On Sundays, kids can collect free cookies by following the Cookie Crawl Map!  Pick up at the Visitor Center, 940 US Highway 2.

It all culminates each Saturday and Sunday with the Lighting Ceremony (starting at 4:45 pm) when a bit of pomp and circumstance brings about the lighting of the village with over half a million lights.
