Emmy nominated for “Best Entertainment Special of the Year” “Christmas Unplugged” invites the audience to a magical escape from the frenzy of our times. Experience Christmas past as if it were today with group sing-alongs and whistle-alongs, archival photographs, and the sound of a century old instruments (harp guitar, classical banjo, various zithers) rarely if ever heard today. John’s physical comedy interspersed with fine musicianship makes for a fun filled evening for all ages.

 “John Doan reminds us in a way that is funny, musical and touching how we might find something we’ve lost from our homes and hearts.”
