“Home for the Holidays” with AFT

American Folklore Theatre (AFT) has announced the line-up for its annual holiday concert show at Gibraltar Town Hall. The sixth incarnation of “Home for the Holidays with AFT” will feature Doc Heide, Chris Irwin, and Claudia Russell. This trio of AFT favorites will present an evening of songs and stories gathered from their own diverse holiday scrapbooks.

“It all started as a opportunity to extend that holiday feeling beyond Christmas morning,” said Holly Feldman, AFT Manager of Marketing, of the beginnings of “Home for the Holidays with AFT.”

Heide says this show is special since they “reinvent it every year by bringing in new combinations of diverse and talented artists. Claudia, Chris and I have all sung on stage together, but never with this delightful material in this format. AFT primarily does book musicals these days, so it’s a real treat to dust off our acoustic guitars and sing folk-style with good friends.”

This year’s performers all live in the San Francisco Bay Area and will rehearse out there for the show. Heide says, “It doesn’t exactly look like Christmas, so we’ll have to drink plenty of ice tea to cool ourselves down.”

Performances are scheduled for 7 pm on Dec. 28 & 29 and 4 pm on Dec. 29, 31 and Jan. 1.

Tickets are $20 for adults and $12 for children. For advance tickets call 920.854.6117, visit, or stop by the AFT office at the Green Gables Shops in Ephraim. Any remaining tickets will be sold at Gibraltar Town Hall before each performance.
