Rufus & Martha Wainwright and their longtime family friend Emmylou Harris will present Nashville Noel Nights at the Ryman Auditorium on Dec. 18 and 19. The Wainwright’s annual Christmas show, Noel Nights, has entertained audiences all over the world and this will be its Music City debut.
Special guests include Alison Krauss, Chris Stills, Jamey Johnson, Venus and the Moon, Kennedy Rose and Karen Elson.
First performed in 2005, the show is part concert and part family reunion, often enlisting friends as guest stars. Brother and sister Martha and Rufus are the children of folk singers Loudon Wainwright III and the late Kate McGarrigle. The Christmas show features three generations of the Wainwright and McGarrigle families: Loudon, Jane McGarrigle, Sloan Wainwright and Lucy Wainwright Roche.
This year Nashville Noel Nights will benefit the Kate McGarrigle Foundation and the Epilepsy Foundation of Tennessee. Tickets and details here.
