Christmas music to fill Emmanuel Lutheran

Friends of Music at Emmanuel Lutheran Church will be hosting a Puddingstone Christmas on Monday.
Puddingstone, an ensemble based out of Lenoir, has performed regularly in Old Salem and the Biltmore House in Asheville.
“They’re known for using many different instruments of Renaissance and Celtic nature and they make their own arrangements of Christmas carols,” Daniel Hanneman with Friends of Music said. “It will be tunes that are old and familiar with something new and different at the same time.”
The seven-member ensemble uses a variety of instruments, including the flute, gemshorn, fife, rackett, harp, banjo and mandolin.
Monday’s event will be the Lincolnton debut of the group. One reason for the performance is Denise Baxter-Yoder, a singer in the group who is also a member of the church. Another reason is Hanneman’s esteem for the group.
“All of the concerts sponsored by Friends of Music are offered with the idea of sharing God’s great gift of music, and all the concerts that we have had are things that I have seen in person and can wholeheartedly endorse,” said Hanneman.
The performance is free and open to the public, and a nursery will be made provided. Puddingstone’s holiday and other recordings will be available at the show.
Want to go? A Puddingstone Christmas will take place Monday at 7:30 p.m. at Emmanuel Lutheran Church, 216 S. Aspen St,.Lincolnton. The event is free. For more information call (704) 735-9033.
