Christmas with The Nylons

The Nylon’s Claude Morrison spoke about the importance the holiday season holds to many people as the group prepares for their annual ‘Christmas with The Nylons" series of concerts.

"Christmas represents a singular opportunity, naturally, to perform the seasonal material of which we have a great deal to choose from," he said. "And, because it's such a narrow window of opportunity, one never gets tired of performing it. Christmas is nothing without the music that goes with it. It's everywhere (and) it's the sound of the season. It brings people together, which adds to its timeless appeal. Personal milestones are observed through the years at Christmas and the music is an integral part of that."
With the band approaching its 30-year anniversary, Morrison was reflective about the milestone.

"Having started as a group in 1979, we are (quickly) approaching our 30th year as a performing entity," he said. "Not many current bands can make that statement. It has all and everything to do with the staying power of the human voice, and of vocal harmonies ... I think we've surprised the nay-sayers (and ourselves) with our longevity. And, yet there are worlds left to conquer. So, stay tuned."

I remember listening to the Nylons when I was in High School in the 80's. They turned me on to a cappella.
