Special guest performers for this evening were the Burns Sisters, from Ithaca, NY. Marie, Annie, and Jeannie Burns sang a number of holiday tunes – some familiar, some not.
The Stone Mountain Boys were in fine form with a number of powerful instrumental interludes. Here Duke Levine, Kevin Barry, and Richard Gates jam on a holiday song behind a sea of mike stands. (Also performing, but not pictured are Sonny Barbato on piano/accordian and Billy MacGillivray on drums.)
Chris Cote, the Stone Mountain Boy’s vocal powerhouse, belted out some exciting and hilarious holiday tunes.

Technical: Canon 40D at ISO 1600 with a 70-200mm f/2.8L IS handheld. Exposures were typically 1/60 to 1/40 second, wide open at f/2.8 — and these were generally underexposed by at least 1/3 stop. Canon 1D Mark 2 at ISO 1600 with a 24-70mm f/2.8L handheld. Exposures centered around 1/60 second, but varied more than the telephoto shots.
