continued Saturday’s celebration begins at 2 p.m. on Kellish Hill with an open mike featuring festive songs. Bells & Motley will take the stage from 4 to 6 p.m. Their set will be followed by a pot-luck turkey-and-ham supper and more music for dessert. Who knows? Revelers may even fill a ceremonial wassail bowl with hot mulled cider, cinnamon, apples and nutmeg.
In any case, admission costs $10, and audience members are encouraged to bring along a side dish or wassail bowl to share.
A secret Santa gift exchange with a gift limit of $10 will take place after supper. “Please mark on the package whether the gift is for a male or female,” Kellish advised. “Then place the gifts under our Christmas tree in the music barn.”
