A New Christmas Memory: David Alford's Christmas Down Home Starts Tonight at Belmont Mansion
December 18, 2012 at 8:42AM
Presented last year as part of Tennessee Repertory Theatre’s holiday celebration, the folkish/bluegrass revue Christmas Down Home, led by the multitalented David Alford and ace musician/arranger Paul Carrol Binkley, was one of the wonderful surprises of the season. It returns this year with a savvy ensemble of players led by Kahle Alford and Erin R. Ramsey, singers who offer engaging renditions of carols, light verse and nostalgic stories, and the Alford/Binkley piece-de-resistance: Truman Capote’s bittersweet “A Christmas Memory.”
The production has been playing at venues around the city since last weekend.
