Christmas on the Square, in Leonardtown, MD

On (Black) Friday, November 28th, at around 7pm, Beth McDonald and I will be in concert at the Leonardtown MD Church of the Nazarene, as a part of Leonardtown's "Christmas on the Square" celebration. 

From the Leonardtown MD Facebook page:
 Ring in the holiday season on Friday, November 28th from 5 - 9:00 PM with Leonardtown’s annual "Christmas on the Square" and "Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony" held on Washington Street in the Leonardtown Square. 
Event activities start at 5:00 p.m. and include holiday music, rides, an ice sculpture demonstration, a petting zoo, live nativity, face painting, and much more!

Our concert begins immediately after the tree lighting, at approximately 7pm. You can enjoy the outdoor festivities for awhile, then come in out of the cold. This is our first time playing the event, and we are looking forward to it. Sounds like fun!
