Decembersongs
Imagine four acclaimed singer-songwriters, Grammy nods among them, criss-crossing the USA throughout December, trading original holiday songs in a Bluebird Café-styled "writers-in-the-round" tour before intimate rapt audiences. That was the brainchild when Amy Speace conceived of Decembersongs in 2010 with her colleagues Jon Vezner, Dan Navarro and Sally Barris.
