Celebrate the Season at A Swannanoa Solstice Annual Holiday Concert, Sunday, December 16, 2018 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. at Diana Wortham Theatre

 Award-winning recording artists Al Petteway, Amy White and Robin Bullock lead the annual holiday concert on Sunday, December 16 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. at Diana Wortham Theatre in downtown Asheville.

A Swannanoa Solstice features a mix of music, storytelling and poetry, with melodies played by virtuosic acoustic guitarist Petteway, who draws influence in everything from Middle Eastern tonalities to Scottish jigs. White, on piano, mandolin, guitar, Celtic harp and percussion, draws on her classical background to create compelling original compositions and arrangements of traditional favorites.

Bullock, a multi-instrumentalist who plays the guitar, mandolin and bouzouki, is hailed as a master musician whose style skillfully embraces Celtic and classical music. Merchandise sales for many of the performing artists will be available in the lobby.

The Diana Wortham Theatre is located at 18 Biltmore Avenue. Tickets cost $48. Purchase them online at or call (828) 257-4530.
