The Warblers

The Warblers, a trio who enjoys singing in happy harmonies backed up by a mandolin, 12-string guitar, banjo, and acoustic bass. We do renditions of tunes varying from those of the Kingston Trio, to Chicago blues, to 18th century Italian polkas that we hope will all become favorites of the reindeer.

Cold Steel

Cold Steel is the world’s most northernmost steel orchestra. Based in Fairbanks, band members range in age from teenagers to those in their seventies. Along with accompanying percussion, the band plays only acoustic handcrafted Trinidadian steel pan instruments, fashioned entirely from 50 gallon oil barrels. The unique resulting sound, even on cold Alaska winter nights, brings the mood of the tropics in the form of calypso, reggae, Brazilian, Afro-Cuban and even good old rock ‘n roll music.

Reverence for the earth, celebrating connections as community, uplifting spirits, and the joys and challenges of living are the inspirations for Susan Grace and her songs.

Emily Anderson

Like stumbling into a rose garden on a trek through the arctic, listeners of Emily Anderson’s music find themselves helplessly lifted into a world so hauntingly familiar, and yet so enchantingly curious. Anderson’s music is as shaped by this whimsical perspective as it is by her musical credentials. A multi-instrumentalist trained at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Anderson fills her songs with images of nature, hope, and the solar system, not to mention a few puns. Anderson hails from Fairbanks, Alaska, and now splits her time between her hometown and Los Angeles.

Music Dave – Dave Snyderman

Music Dave is a local singer/songwriter living in the Fairbanks downtown area. His homespun Alaskan tunes always leave folks better than the way he found them. He plays a self-taught steel string guitar and blows a pretty sweet Harmonica. His style is folk rock and reminiscent to Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Jim Croce And John Prine.
