    We are in a month of feast and celebration for many faiths —  and for many without a faith tradition. Good spirits, hospitality and habits of giving beyond family and friends mean that shelves are filled — sometimes temporarily overfilled — at local food banks.

  • Sometimes the best music comes about with no planning, no forethought, no sheet music …just the passion of the musicians and a moment in time when a partnership is forged that produces magic. Such is the case with the collaboration between two sisters, Maree McRae and Linda Hickman. Both longtime, award-winning musicians in their own right, the women came together in Colorado to produce an acoustic Christmas album of piano, flute and guitar. The sisters will debut their album, “Lights,” at the Ice House Cafe in Evergreen on Friday, Dec. 17, at 7 p.m.
