CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – This Friday, David Steinquest, Austin Peay State University professor of music, plans to hang out in the living room with a couple hundred of his closest friends. The living room, featuring couches and comfy chairs, will be set up on the stage of the campus’ Mabry Concert Hall, and it’s where the APSU Department of Music will host its annual Christmas with David Steinquest and Friends concert at 7:30 p.m. on Dec. 2.

The concert will feature a band made up of Steinquest’s favorite musicians – guitarist Paul Binkley, piano player Kevin Madill, drummer Matt DeVore, base player Larry Crew and vocalists Allison Steinquest and David Alford. Binkley formerly played with the country music group Alabama, and Alford plays Bucky Dawes on the popular TV show “Nashville.” 

“The concert includes Christmas standards like ‘My Favorite Things,’ ‘Go Tell It On the Mountain’ and ‘God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen,’” Steinquest said. “However, the tunes are dressed up in unusual and innovative arrangements that give them new life. This year’s show is influenced by Mary J. Blige, James Taylor, Shawn Colvin, India.Arie, Drew Holcombe and the Neighbors, Sara Groves, Holly Cole, Jon McLaughlin, Sara Bareilles and Family Force 5.”

 Erin Binkley will also perform “The Christmas Pageant,” a monologue from the show “Christmas Down Home.”

Admission to Friday’s concert is two cans of food, which will be donated to Loaves and Fishes, or $5. For ticket information call 221-7818.
