Nashville, TN – Guitarist and singer Peter Mayer of the Peter Mayer Group and Jimmy Buffett’s Coral Reefer Band will perform his 19th annual Stars and Promises Christmas tour.
The seasonal performance features imaginative arrangements of traditional and original carols, composed and led by Mayer and his ensemble of versatile musicians in cities across the country.
“The theme for this year’s Stars and Promises tour is ‘A Junkman’s Christmas,’ which comes from a memory of my father at Christmas who made the most of a forgotten present by weaving together widgets and fix-it objects so that I had another item under the tree,” said Peter Mayer, guitarist and singer for the Peter Mayer Group, one of eight children in his family. “The holiday season is celebrated around the world in song, from concert halls to shopping malls, and we are honored to be a part of families’ yearly traditions as we begin our 19th year of holiday performances.”
Mayer is joined by a world class ensemble of musicians, featuring Chris Walters on piano (Bela Fleck, Alabama, J.D. Souther), Miles Vandiver on drums (Tom Kennedy, Ray Kennedy, Brian Owens), Mark Holland on native flute (Autumn’s Child, Oregon), Brendan Mayer (guitarist, singer-songwriter, Mailboat recording artist), Zeb Briskovich (Clark Terry, Grady Tate, the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra) on bass, Ben Sanders The Sweetback Sisters, Jay Unger & Molly Mason, Garrison Keillor) on violin.
The night will feature a collection of timeless carols, original songs and stories, which celebrate the magical Christmas season when families come together from near and far to share gifts of peace, joy, faith and love. The world-class musical performance is accompanied by a beautiful stage production, lighting and pristine sound. The Stars and Promises tradition is a celebration of story and song that rings in the Christmas spirit.
