Julian Koster releases details and dates for his Holiday Cheer caroling tour.

Julian and the saws are planning a tour to several cities and are offering to come caroling at your house. All you have to do is invite them! At each house, Julian will play a few songs of the Music Tapes, and the saws will play a few of their holiday favorites for hosts and their assembled guests. And then, on they will go to the next house.

Households that would like to invite Julian and his friends to come carol may do so up until the night before the carolers arrive in your town by sending an invitation to or by mailing a written invitation to:

Music Tapes Caroling

c/o G. Stewart

175 Talmadge Street, Apt. 1

Athens, GA 30605

Written invitations will be given priority, should arrive a few days before the carolers arrive, and include an email address or telephone number for reply. Invitations where the inviters indicate that they would be willing to entertain outside guests on caroling night are preferred. Once the limit on houses on a given night has been reached, the address of each house that will welcome guests will be distributed via email to all who email and ask to attend. The addresses of the houses will not be posted online.

These will be caroling events (not house concerts) and there will be no monetary recompense of any kind asked for. People who wish to make a donation to the Carolers Travel Fund via the website where all Caroling updates and information will be found.
