Another Solstice Tradition

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the first Windham Hill Winter’s Solstice recording, founder Will Ackerman, joined by fellow guitarist Alex de Grassi, multi instrumentalist Barbara Higbie, cellist Ellen Sanders and guitarist & bassist Todd Boston filled the Lobero with an eclectic mix of holiday-themed (and some not) music. Ranging from Ackeman’s and de Grassi’s cerebral atmospherics to some bluegrass and a bit of classical & ethnic, there was something to please just about anyone and the vibe was laid-back and informal.
