Every Second Saturday of the month at 8pm, we welcome diverse entertainers to the Preservation Hall (formerly Logan Street Sanctuary) stage! In November we welcome Raggedy Edge! Raggedy Edge is Dayton OH singer-songwriter couple Lynn Perdzock and Bob Farley, who strive to make their music upbeat and positive, blending tight vocal harmonies with uncommon instrumental talent, wry storylines, and witty, fun-loving camaraderie and banter. Their music touches on country, rock, folk, blues, adult contemporary and American standards styles, all wrapped up in a family-friendly show that highlights strong vocal harmonies and musicianship. They bring creative boldness, variety, spark, fun, and thoughtfulness for folks who seek out positive, upbeat messages in the music they hear. Whether performing their own creations or interpreting classics from the American Standards of the 1930s through the 1950s and the folk rock country pop of the 1960s through today, Lynn and Bob are driven to share the gift of music they’ve been given, to pass along the joy and memories that songs can open up.

The rag tag players quickly become the characters of the story, and we are pulled into the life of Ebenezer Scrooge, complete with the Christmas Spirits who warm the Scrooge’s heart. This version of A Christmas Carol is certain to be a delight for all ages. Audiences will leave the theater with good feelings and the holiday spirit.
