Fans of The Grapevine are in for a treat when Rod, the host, interviews longtime local musician and concert organizer Billy Fairfield. No doubt those two can tell some fun local music yarns, but the conversation will include the well-loved Home for the Holidays concert that Billy organizes each year. The concert, held Dec. 20 at 7 p.m. this year in the Veterans Memorial Theatre, showcases nationally recognized local musicians. Proceeds go to the Davis School Arts Foundation to benefit Davis' public school music and arts programs.
This year's lineup includes Joe Craven; Little Charlie Baty's Caravan; Rita Hosking & Cousin Jack; Chris Webster & Tracy Walton of Mumbo Gumbo in a trio with Bill Edward; White Ginger Lei, a 6-piece Hawaiian ensemble with Ray Elsie; Frank Fox's Holiday Doo-Wop; Voice of the Wood (Diana Craig & Heidi Bekebrede); the Davis High School Jazz Choir, and special guests.
