No Santa Claus. No reindeer. No Frosty the Snowman. Michael Martin Murphey’s picturesque Christmas comes decorated by wide open blue skies, rows of snow-dusted pines, a warmly lit log cabin and a flickering campfire.
Murphey’s treasured Cowboy Christmas concerts, a tradition now more than three decades strong, explores the humanity and spirituality of the season. It delves into the American heritage of Christmas organically and universally. It strips down the highly commercial holiday to its bare essentials in an effort to present a richer, more rewarding experience for the audience.
Murphey will bring his 2017 Cowboy Christmas tour to Uvalde on Saturday, Dec. 9 at 7 p.m. to the Janey Slaughter Briscoe Grand Opera House, 104 W. North St. Tickets range from $35 to $75 for VIP.
