String Ties Revised-SOLD OUT


The holiday season has special magic when it includes a String Ties concert at the Pump House.  Dan Sebranek, Wayne Beezley, Larry Dalton and Tom Pfaff have performed together for decades in this annual, much loved, holiday concert.  When bird-lover Tom Pfaff took flight as a snowbird – Dan, Wayne and Larry were left holding Santa’s bag.  Replacing Tom’s banjo + banter for the Christmas show? – no way! But they enjoyed doing the show…so, they got two of the best string players around to help shoulder Santa’s satchel.
