At a time of year when many Door County businesses cut back on hours or close their doors altogether, The Holiday Music Motel is featuring a double-billing weekend of studio concerts.
Two very intimate and diverse house concerts take place in their on-site Sturgeon Bay studio on November 4 and 5 at 7 pm. On Friday, Stas Venglevski — world renowned Byan virtuoso — returns to The Holiday to delight audiences by performing works ranging from classical interpretations of Tchaikovsky to folk melodies from his Russian homeland. Joining him will be fellow compatriot Misha Litvin on mandolin. Stas and Misha have toured extensively together including a recent performance at the reputed Pine Mountain Music Festival.
The following Saturday evening, The Holiday welcomes one of America’s favorite songwriters Freedy Johnston. Certainly no stranger to this area—he is a devoted Steel Bridge SongFest returnee—this will be Freedy’s first house concert at The Holiday. Known for hits such as “Bad Reputation” and “Perfect World,” Freedy has been featured in Rolling Stone, The New York Times, Spin and Musician Magazine, all hailing Freedy as one of America’s best “songwriter’s songwriters.”
Both concerts start at 7 pm following a pre-concert reception. Tickets are $10 per person. To reserve your seat (and/or room), simply visit HolidayMusicMotel.com or call 920.743.5571.
