Smithsonian Folkways artist ELIZABETH MITCHELL invites special musical guests (including Natalie Merchant of 10,000 Maniacs fame) for 'The Sounding Joy' NYC album release concert on December 14th; Pirate School rouses the audience's inner swashbuckler with interactive fun on December 28th.

The holidays will sparkle for families when Symphony Space's Just Kidding series presents two all-ages shows in December:

Saturday, December 14, 11 am: ELIZABETH MITCHELL and Friends with special guest Natalie Merchant

GRAMMY-nominated, Smithsonian Folkways Recording artist ELIZABETH MITCHELL will be joined by husband Daniel Littleton, daughter Storey, and special guests including Natalie Merchant. The Sounding Joy is an exploration of Christmas and solstice songs from the American folk tradition. Drawn almost exclusively from the often overlooked but deeply influential songbook of revered composer and anthologist Ruth Crawford Seeger, these songs evoke an era before mass media and the commercialization of Christmas, when sacred song, dance, contemplation, and gathering were prized above all else during the holiday season. The Sounding Joy is Mitchell's fifth album for Smithsonian Folkways. Ages 2 and up.
