‘Holidays with The Trail Band’ will be presented for their 25th and final time. Their long running popular Christmas concert series was created in 1994 by Marv & Rindy Ross of Quarterflash, and over the course of hundreds of shows, The Trail Band recorded thirteen CDs, produced an OPB television special, and raised millions of dollars for schools, arts organizations, and beneficiaries like Friends of the Children.
The Trail Band is an 8-piece ensemble that creates an energetic blend of brass and string arrangements of traditional and original music featuring five great vocalists. Hundreds of public and private appearances across America and Japan, plus thirteen successful albums have established the group as the premiere historic and holiday music ensemble from the Northwest. Cornet, tenor horn, tuba, fiddles, hammer dulcimer, guitars, banjo, penny whistle, mandolin, saxophone, spoons, bones, drums, bass, and recorders combine with the band’s rich vocal harmonies to create a diverse tapestry of sound inspired by 19th century music.
