“Christmas Down Home” comes to Austin Peay State University

Christmas Down Home - David AlfordClarksville, TN – With a few days left until Christmas the lines at the checkout are long, traffic is worse, and its hard to get a sincere “Merry Christmas” from those that push past you on their way to the next store. It is not too late, though, to save that holiday spirit.

“Christmas Down Home”, created by David Alford and Paul Carrol Binkley will be at the APSU Music/Mass Communications Concert Hall for the last stop on their holiday tour.

Enjoy an evening together with loved ones to set the tone for the Christmas weekend and let your heart be filled with cherished traditional holiday songs such as “Go Tell It On The Mountain,” “I Wonder As I Wander,” and “Sweet Little Jesus Boy.” Performed by accomplished Nashville actors and musicians, this production promises to be a heartwarming trip down memory lane infusing hints of Appalachia with honest family stories of togetherness and unity.

Another special treat in store for audiences Friday evening is “Truman Capote: A Christmas Memory” with original music composition by Paul Carol Binkley.

Binkley, alumni of Berklee College of Music, Boston (Jim Hall Jazz Award), Austin Peay State University, and Blair School of Music at Vanderbilt University, first collaborated with Alford on this collection in 1995 and together have refined it year after year to make it what it is today.

These intimate stories and songs will take you on a journey through time and your emotions to rekindle the tiny spark within us all that shines just a little brighter this time of year.
