Each and every season for 29 years, Grammy Award-winning artists, Eric Tingstad and Nancy Rumbel have been home for the holidays creating a longstanding tradition with Northwest families. The perfect blend of Americana fingerstyle guitar, double reeds; and the ocarina emitting the nostalgic sound of penny whistles, lends magic to the season that fills the world with hope through the redeeming power of music. Festive and reverent, solemn and lively, the repertoire Eric and Nancy bring to audiences year after year are perennial favorites that have been passed down through the ages.

Well-known throughout the country and throughout the music industry, Tingstad & Rumbel won the Best New Age Grammy Award in 2003 in support of Acoustic Garden. Tingstad’s latest ensemble release, Southwest was nominated for a Grammy in 2007.
