We know how to throw a party! We’ve been doing this since 1809….there is ALWAYS something to do when you come to Madison. There are home tours, music events, garden tours, holiday events, arts/crafts shows, 5Ks, car shows, food & wine tastings – just to name a few.
Our largest events include RiverRoots Music and Folk Arts Festival, Madison Regatta, Madison Ribberfest BBQ & Blues, Madison Chautauqua Festival of Art, Soup, Stew, Chili & Brew Festival and Nights Before Christmas Candlelight Tour of Homes.
Guests will enjoy an intimate afternoon in the elegant atmosphere of the Lanier Mansion parlors, listening to music and stories from the old world. Tomás Lozano and Erica Rubis will share Christmas songs, ballads and festive traditional dance tunes, sung and played on guitar, treble, bass viol and the rarely-heard hurdy-gurdy – a stringed instrument that sounds similar to a violin.
Lozano is an instrumentalist, vocalist and composer born in Barcelona, Spain, and raised between southern Spain and Catalonia. Rubis is a versatile performer on the viola da gamba, whose work ranges from renaissance viol consort to improvising and co-creating new music.
The concert will begin at 2 p.m., and admission is $5 per person. Seating is limited, and reservations are recommended. Reservations can be made by calling Gerry Reilly, Lanier Mansion State Historic Site manager, at (812) 273-0556.
