Eli Wirtschafter joins me as the Do List co-host this week, feeling oppressed, as I often do, by the din of commercial carols piped in to every retail establishment (No, no, no! Not “The Little Drummer Boy” again!) So we went hunting for holiday shows and music that sounded fresh and offered an ecumenical spirit. Plus we have two dance events (Joe Landini and Sarah Bush) , Cuban drummer Yissy Garcia, and country rocker Lilly Hiatt, who has yet to record an album of Christmas favorites. Thank goodness.
