In our American culture It’s a Wonderful Life has become almost as familiar as Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. The story is a natural for a stage adaptation: the saga of George Bailey, the Everyman from the small town of Bedford Falls, whose dreams of escape and adventure have been quashed by family obligation and civic duty, whose guardian angel has to descent on Christmas Eve to save him from despair

The Georgia Spiritual Ensemble

Saturday, December 21 at 7:30 pm

The Georgia Spiritual Ensemble sings traditional and arranged choral and solo spirituals that have been popularized throughout the twentieth century. Because of the strong musical legacy the spiritual possesses and the horrific conditions under which it “sprang” into existence, it continues to maintain its original haunting quality and its uncanny beauty and dignity.

The essence of Just Roxie is harmony. Accomplished musicians, gifted songwriters and vocalists, and longtime friends Lenny Lasater (bass), Linda Bolley (guitars and banjo), and Becky Shaw (guitar, harmonica, button accordion, lap steel) blend their distinctive talents, voices, and styles to create a sound and dynamic uniquely their own. Bringing their refined artistry, stunning vocals, and the wisdom born of life experience to their singing, arranging, and songwriting, their music comes from the heart and speaks to the soul.
