The Morning Star – Holiday 2012 Edition

November 27, 2012

This Christmas!

Greetings to all of you from the Stars and Promises rehearsal cave! We’ve been getting new songs and songs you know by heart ready for our Christmas tour. We hope to see you down the road. This year we have 18 shows, believe it or not , so come say hello if we’re in your area. We are traveling with a fantastic crew and group of musicians. Returning are R. Scott Bryan on percussion and vocals, Marc Torlina on bass, Chris Walters on keyboards, and Marc Holland playing flutes. We welcome two newcomers this year; Brendan Mayer on guitar and vocals (many of you heard Brendan on tour with Scott Kirby and me in the northeast a couple months ago).  And, while violinist Maggie Estes is touring this season with the Irish group The Gettys, we are happy to welcome Melanie Parobek on violin. Melanie is a fellow resident of Music City Nashville and a very fine violinist who has studied both jazz and classical violin.  Melanie Joy enjoys the art of composition and songwriting, and would love to share her original music. Please visit her facebook page at
