Gig Guide

FRIDAY AT THE DOUGLASS THEATRE

Robin Bullock and Steve Baughman have teamed up to release a new CD. These two masters of acoustic instruments will perform Celtic, Appalachian and seasonal favorites on guitar, mandolin, banjo and even the cittern. All ages. 8 p.m. $20 adults; $10 seniors and students.

SATURDAY AT THE HUMMINGBIRD STAGE AND TAPROOM

Roots music is such a part of the fabric of Georgia music that it’s not surprising to see young bands taking up the mantle of a sound that many consider to be bygone. Our own Back City Woods is an example of this, blurring the lines between bluegrass and rock to create a sound that is uniquely Southern. They invite along their good friends Radiolucent, the Law Band, Reuben’s Bell, Sailing to Denver and the Rambling Fevers for a showcase of some of the best roots rock to be found today. 18 and up. 6 p.m. $10.

SATURDAY AT TASTE AND SEE COFFEE SHOP

Louise Warren continues to win the Cal Ripken award for Macon singer-songwriters. She’s hard working, very talented and one of Macon’s nicest people. It’s not a surprise that when the “Music Voyager” television show came to film an episode about Macon that they wanted to record a song from her. Warren is sure to warm the entire room with her singing and put even grinchiest of listeners in the holiday spirit. All ages. 7 p.m. Free.

SUNDAY AT JUS ONE MORE IN WARNER ROBINS

The Swayzes and Old Man Shoes team up to bring Warner Robins a rockabilly Christmas party full of great music and fun. Rockabilly Santa will be on hand to take pictures and to find out who’s been naughty or nice. There also will be a kissing booth and a 50/50 raffle. All proceeds will benefit local musician Stanley Newman’s cancer treatment. Come rock out for a good cause! 4 p.m. $5 admission includes two slices of pizza.

TUESDAY AT THE GRAND OPERA HOUSE

The John Tesh radio show can be heard all across the country, even right here in Macon. He’s not only a great radio personality, he’s also a very accomplished pianist. He will be bringing along his swinging big band to help him perform all your holiday favorites. Of course there also will be his famous banter with the audience. Bring the whole family and swing into the holiday season! All ages. 7:30 p.m. $45-$65.
