For the 5th year running Swedish/American flutist Elsa Nilsson and her Quartet will bring you their modern version of the traditional Swedish Lucia Celebration.

This uniquely Swedish holiday celebrates the return of light during the darkest time of the year. The quartet will put its own unique spin on the traditional music drawing from Balkan, Argentinian, Brazilian, Syrian and North African influences with gingerbread cookies and glitter for everyone!

Each member of the band brings his or her own flavor to the music. With Nilsson leading on flute, this band also features Jeff McLaughlin on guitar, Alex Minier on bass, and Cody Rahn on percussion. Nilsson is the winner of the 2018 NFA Jazz Flute Competition and holds a BM from Cornish College of The Arts and an MM from NYU.

COST: $10 cover, $10 minimum. Reservations at 212.989.9319
