It's the most wonderful time of the year! Join award-winning singer, actress and comedian, Jane Lynch, as she rings in the holidays with songs from her brand-new Christmas album. Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner Jane Lynch returns with her holiday concert! Fresh from her iconic portrayal of Sue Sylvester on Glee and her Broadway debut as Miss Hannigan in Annie, Jane will bring her comic skills and musical prowess to the theater stage. She will delight the crowd with poignant and hilarious takes on holiday favorites! A Swingin Little Christmas is unapologetically sentimental, recalling the classic Christmas albums of the 1950s and 60s. The album features fifteen tracks, including fresh takes on ten classic carols and five brand new nostalgia-inspired originals, penned by bandleader, Tony Guerrero. The disc is ripe with clever jazz arrangements, tight vocal harmonies and features a variety of instrumentations including a five-piece jazz quintet, a full big band and lush string orchestrations. Both Jane and Kate are well known for their comedic abilities, and while the album has several fun, lighthearted moments, there are also plenty of deep, rich and even serious musical moments to balance it out.
JANE LYNCH is an Emmy and Golden Globe winner for her portrayal of Sue Sylvester on Glee and she is currently the two-time Emmy Award-winning host of NBC's Hollywood Game Night. In 2015, Jane embarked on her own live concert tour, See Jane Sing with Kate Flannery, Tim Davis and The Tony Guerrero Quintet. Their holiday album, A Swingin' Little Christmas is available from iTunes, Amazon and other outlets.
