The Clark family will be ringing in the holiday season by sharing songs, stories and their love of all things Christmas on Saturday, December 10 at 7:00 p.m. and Sunday, December 11 at 2:00 p.m. in the Monclova Country Church on the grounds of the Wolcott Heritage Center, 1035 River Rd., Maumee.
“The pandemic forced us all to slow down and, for some, to re-evaluate the things in our lives that fill us and nourish us the most,” said Kerry Patrick Clark, who has crafted a life out of making and playing music. “For our family, music has always been soul food, providing a means of connecting, developing community, of celebrating moments of love, hope, sorrow and joy.”
Kerry, a former New Christy Minstrel member and No. 1 charting folk singer/songwriter, met his wife Amy on the stage of a Waterville Playshop production 26 years ago, and they were married in 2002. Their son, Robbie, is a 2021 graduate of the Toledo School for the Arts and recently returned from an appearance on this year’s American Idol.
“The three of us are so excited and look forward to sharing the love of Christmas with you and your family,” Amy said. “Join us with your best singing voice to belt out favorite Christmas carols and holiday songs of the ages.”
Tickets are $15.00 each and are limited to 100 each show. A smaller number of tickets may be available for the Friday, December 9 7:00 p.m. dress rehearsal. Tickets can be purchased at KerryPatrickClark.com.
A portion of each ticket sale will go to support the Wolcott Heritage Society, which is a special place for Amy and Kerry. Amy’s grandmother, Ruth Roach, taught in the one-room schoolhouse located on the Wolcott Heritage Center property, and the Monclova Country Church came from a site not far from where Amy grew up.
