Staff Blogs Take a break from traditional holiday music Wed, 03 Sep 2014 04:46:00 GMT Holiday tunes have been playing on the radio and in malls for several weeks. For some people, one more version of “Santa Baby” may just be the tipping point. But if you want a fresh take on holiday music head over to the Big Holiday Music Party from 6 to 8 p.m. Saturday at Milwaukee Street Traders, 523 Milwaukee St., Delafield. The Peter Donalds Trio will headline the show and Donalds promises a great time. “We’ll be doing music from the album,” said Donalds, “including original holiday tunes and some unique covers. If you’re tired of the same old songs every year, we’ll surprise you.” This year Donalds recorded two new CDs, “The Colors I See” and “Small Town Christmas.” The trio includes Mike Helgesen on percussion, Billy Lambrecht on Bass and Donalds son, Jack, on guitar. The program also includes Jesse and Pamela Darrow of Delafield and Chris Wilkie, lead singer of Beacon Music Ministry in Milwaukee, plus traditional and contemporary singalonogs. Admission is free. Donalds is an East Troy native who recently returned to Wisconsin where he performs at Traders the second and fourth Saturday of each month. Traders’ menu includes a beer, wine, hot beverages, sandwiches and sweets. For more information, call (262) 646-9289. en-us Lake Country Watch Tue, 28 Jul 2009 15:38:53 PDT
