As the holidays grow ever closer, the spirit of the season inevitably becomes muddied with frantic shopping, obligatory gatherings, and competitive decorating, to the point where it can be difficult to enjoy the season. Duck out of the madness and head to the Wadsworth Mansion for an afternoon of holiday entertainment and conviviality.


Tom Lee, who knows a thing or two about quieting the proverbial noise by inviting listeners to join him as he travel back to eras gone by. Tom is a professional storyteller with twenty years of experience performing time-honored stories, folktales and myths from cultures around the world; some are centuries old, some originated thousands of years ago.


Teresa Whitaker is a singer/songwriter/storyteller and arts educator whose delicate and earthy voice conveys nuance and punch. Frank Schwartz is a gifted singer and songwriter who has played many styles of music. He was also a founding member of Maryland’s famous Irish band O’Malley’s March. Performing arts partner with the Yale Center for British Art and the Metropolitan Opera Education Conference.
