The annual Wintersong concert raises money for the Second Harvest Food Bank of Southern Wisconsin with generous helpings of folk music and holiday whimsy. Singer/multi-instrumentalist/songwriter Anna Vogelzang, who organized the first Wintersong while living in Madison, will return from her current home base of LA to play the event's sixth edition. A bunch of Madison-based artists will join Vogelzang here, including standbys like Nick Brown, Josh Harty, and Faux Fawn. You can expect most of the performers to have prepared some special seasonal material for the occasion, and they're likely to collaborate amongst each other, joining some not-yet-announced "surprise guests" in the process. Previous editions have ended with big group sing-alongs, and there's generally some playful humor in the mix as well. The event has grown from its beginning at the Gates of Heaven, moving up to the Majestic and then the Barrymore, so it's safe to say Wintersong has become a local tradition of holiday celebration and giving. —Scott Gordon
