Red and Shorty’s is delighted to welcome back, for a rockin’ holiday special, Mr. Bill Kirchen!
Forget the Nutcracker and Handel’s Messiah. They’re so overdone. For a taste of real holiday cheer, nothing says joy to the world and peace on earth like Bill Kirchen singing “Daddy’s Drinkin’ Up Our Christmas.” Featured is a sleigh-full of rarely heard holiday numbers from the blues, rock ‘n’ roll and honky tonk bags. “Silent Surfin’ Night”? You bet. “Truckin’ Trees for Christmas”? Of course. “Santa Looked A Lot Like Daddy”? Oh yeah. And so many more. Let joy be unrefined.
Grammy nominated guitarist, singer and songwriter Bill Kirchen is one of the fortunate few who can step onto any stage, play those trademark licks that drove his seminal Commander Cody classic Hot Rod Lincoln into the Top Ten, and elicit instant recognition for a career that has spanned over 40 years and includes guitar work with Nick Lowe, Emmylou Harris, Doug Sahm, Elvis Costello and many more. Named “A Titan of the Telecaster” by Guitar Player Magazine, he celebrates an American musical tradition where rock ‘n’ roll and country music draws upon its origins in blues and bluegrass, Western swing from Texas and California honky-tonk.
