Billy Jonas Holiday Family Concert
Dec 17 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Asheville’s own Billy Jonas will bring his creative, interactive and soul-inspiring family concert to the Grey Eagle. It’s funky folk music for the whole family! In addition, JCC all-star musicians Penny White and Seth Kellam will open, and join Billy. Come celebrate the holidays, sing along, and help raise money for the JCC!

Throw out the rules when Billy Jonas hits the stage — It’s a musical conversation … a sonic celebration … a splendiferous gathering of old and young, because at a Billy Jonas show, the ensemble is… everyone.

With quirky, adventurous lyrics and creative instrumentation, Billy’s concerts captivate all ages. His eight CDs and two DVDs have garnered a bevy of honors and critical acclaim, including a New York Times “Best” listing, a First Place Gold from American Federation of Independent Musicians, and multiple Parent’s Choice Gold Awards. HIs CD “Happy Accidents” received a USA Today “10 Best of 2009” award, and the newest family CD, by the Billy Jonas Band, “Build It Back Again,” received multiple awards including an Independent Music Award nomination. In April 2010, Billy and the Billy Jonas Band were invited to play at the White House!
