Listen to some sweet music at the Saugatuck Center for the Arts on Friday, December 7 at 8:00 p.m.

You don't want to miss what will very likely be the only Christmas, Hanukkah, Solstice, New Year's concert this year. Irreverent singer, songwriter, entertainer Christine Lavin and folk-pop trio Uncle Bonsai celebrate all of winter’s holidays with a grain of salt and a lot of laughter in the holiday concert, Just One Angel.  With the spotlight on fresh, new holiday-themed songs along with favorites from their individual repertoires, Christine and Uncle Bonsai deliver a concert of song you’ll never hear in an elevator.
Just One Angel is based on the album of the same name which Christine produced in 2010 featuring twenty-two original holiday songs written and performed by fellow singer-songwriters including Janis Ian, Jeff Daniels, Roy Zimmerman, Kate Taylor, and many more.
Folded throughout Just One Angel are songs from Christine’s and Uncle Bonsai’s respective repertories – Lavin’s “Good Thing He/She Can’t Read My Mind,” “If You’re Drunk You Cannot Buy A Puppy,” “What Was I Thinking?” and Uncle Bonsai’s perennial hits  "The Baby's Head," “Men & Women,”  and “The Monster in the Closet”.   These and other concert standards are a perfect lock with holiday songs such as “When You’re Single at Christmastime,” “Doug’s Greatest Christmas Ever,” “Is it Hanukkah Or Chanukkah?” and “The Christians and the Pagans."

Also joining the performance is Megon McDonough, a fantastic singer/songwriter/actor from Chicago, who was awarded the top theatre award when she starred as Patsy Cline in "Always Patsy Cline".
