Lee Murdock

The Christmas Ship Concert


Seasonal lore of the Great Lakes

Lee Murdock has uncovered a boundless body of music and stories of the Great Lakes, songs made of hard work and hard living, of ships that come in and ships that have gone down. Tonight, Lee arrives in port with his Christmas Ship Concert, a holiday show commemorating the turn-of-the-century tradition of carrying Christmas trees to Great Lakes port cities. At the end of the lumber season every year, Great Lakes captains would carry one final cargo, heralding the holiday season with a deck piled high with fresh-cut evergreen trees and garlands. It's a one-of-a-kind seasonal celebration, and a great way to see the man Dirty Linen called "the premier interpreter of songs and tales about the Great Lakes." Lee comes to town with a new all-instrumental holiday album, "A Wordless Christmas."
