A Charlie Brown Christmas Tour in NB

Posted by

We are super pleased to announce Tales of A Charlie Brown Christmas with The Jerry Granelli Trio in Fredericton, December 18 @ The Fredericton Playhouse, Saint John. December 19 @ The Imperial Theatre and Moncton, December 21 @ The Capitol Theatre.

Over half a century ago in 1965, drummer Jerry Granelli spent three hours in a San Francisco studio with bassist Fred Marshall and the incomparable Vince Guaraldi. That’s all it took to lay down the soundtrack for A Charlie Brown Christmas. While that album is viewed as an undeniable classic and part of the canon today, Jerry was paid a mere hundred dollars for his time. That marked the only money he would receive from the session, and thanks to a clerical error at the record label, he was mistakenly left off of the album credits for decades.

Now the only surviving member of that Vince Guaraldi Trio line-up, Jerry was moved to assemble a band and return to the stage after a chance conversation on a beach in Nova Scotia three years ago. In concert with Simon Fisk (bass), Chris Gestrin (piano) and a local children’s choir, Jerry shares the songs and stories behind A Charlie Brown Christmas. The show is full of spirit, both for the holidays and the phenomenal music behind this seminal holiday album.  

Individual tickets for Tales of A Charlie Brown Christmas are available directly through the three venues; The Fredericton Playhouse, Imperial Theatre in Saint John and The Capitol Theatre in Moncton. Ticket options include online, in person and over the phone. 

***'Both pass options for the 2018 Shivering Songs festival include a discount code for $15 off of a ticket to any of the three Tales of A Charlie Brown Christmas shows.***
