Suzzy Roche, an original member of The Roches, has been singing for most of her life. Together with sisters Maggie and Terre, the Roches recorded thirteen albums. Their beloved Christmas recording We Three Kings is a perennial favorite. Lucy Wainwright Roche was born into two influential musical families, the Wainwrights and the Roches. Since 2007, Lucy has released two EPs and two studio albums (“Lucy” and “There’s a Last Time for Everything”). Their Holiday-ish Show is a thoughtful musical journey that includes some Roches’ style holiday cheer as well as material from two lifetimes of writing, singing and performing. Joining them for this special concert will be Lucy’s father, Loudon Wainwright III and Special Guests, including Julie Gold and Ira Glass.
