On December 15, Shaw is inviting fans and friends of all ages to Music & Merriment, a special event at Pop City on Magazine Street. Guests can take pictures with Santa and enjoy music, cookies, coffee and holiday cheer. The event is free and open to the public. Ornaments will be available for purchase.
“The end of the year is always a great time for reflection, and I can honestly say that 2018 has been an amazing year of personal and professional growth.” Shaw continued, “With the recent launch of my foundation, and the excitement of the holidays, I thought creating an ornament would be a great was to build on an incredible year by teaming up with fans and friends to share the spirit of giving and make beautiful holiday memories.”
AMANDA SHAW'S CAJUN CHRISTMAS SPECIAL
For the second consecutive year, talented musician Amanda Shaw is spreading holiday magic with Amanda Shaw’s Cajun Christmas Special, a modern day variety program, which will air regionally and showcase Louisiana traditions.
Amanda Shaw’s Cajun Christmas Special will feature live performances, special guests and more, while spotlighting Louisiana’s cultural and Christmas traditions in front of a primetime audience. The fun and festive special brings theatrical performances and lighthearted skits to life with a cast of local characters and talented personalities. The holiday special features familiar faces in homegrown entertainment including regional favorites Rockin’ Dopsie, Flow Tribe and The Vettes, as well as celebrity chef Tory McPhail of Commanders Palace and radio personality Tpot.
“The holiday season is such a special time of year and the Christmas program gives me another way to do what I love – connect with my fans and friends in a unique way,” said Shaw. “I am incredibly grateful that locals tuned in and enjoyed last year’s show. This year, we expanded to include even more holiday traditions and rich culture by adding more local artists and performers to help bring holiday cheer to the homes of Louisianans.”
Amanda Shaw continuously works on diverse projects in entertainment and in the community. Earlier this year, the creative fiddler spread her wings and officially launched the Amanda Shaw Foundation, a nonprofit that aims to build, sustain and empower strong Louisiana families through music, food and culture.
Shaw is celebrating the spirit of the season with her new foundation in mind and recently announced the release of a limited edition holiday ornament, which is available for $25 with Shaw’s signature. The real wood ornament is four inches in size and features the Amanda Shaw Foundation logo with the added flourish of the “bow and bow” icon to reflect her passion for music and the spirit of the season. All profits raised from ornament sales will go to the Amanda Shaw Foundation to support fundraising efforts.
