WFUV Holiday Cheer
New York 2016 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Beacon Theatre, New York, NY; November 30, 2016. (Broadcast on December 22, 2016.) Very good FM broadcast.

Since its inception in 2005, Holiday Cheer for FUV (Bronx, NY) has been both a celebration of music and an annual fĂȘte thanking the station’s enthusiastic and generous listeners. On a misty November night at the end of a long year, the sold-out gathering at the Beacon Theatre for Holiday Cheer 2016’s “Amos Lee and Friends” felt especially communal for performers and the crowd.

The show began with WFUV program director and “The Whole Wide World” host Rita Houston dedicating the night to the memory of the much-missed Sharon Jones. The dynamic singer, who passed away on November 18, 2016 had rocked the Beacon stage only a year earlier with The Dap-Kings as part of Holiday Cheer 2015 with Brandi Carlile. -
