The Christmas Carol Project

Dec 18, 2011

Edmonton-based Brass Monkey Productions returns with its musical interpretation of Dickens’ tale. After 15 years, the project is more popular than ever, featuring a diverse collection of folk, blues, Celtic, and funk tunes, all with an acoustic feel and some mean guitar playing. A blend of literature, narration, and topnotch contemporary music, talented singer-songwriters transform into Scrooge, Tiny Tim, and the gang to offer a musical performance that could be the hippest show of the season.
