Announcing 2020 Christmas Tour – Christmas From Marine

SimpleGifts proudly announces a new take on our annual holiday tour for this year. 2020 Christmas From Marine-On-St-Croix features both a limited number of “in-person, socially-distanced, intimate-performance” tickets AND convenient live-stream options for our fans who prefer an in-home holiday experience across the globe.

All four Sunday’s after Thanksgiving at 3:30pm CentralTime(US) we will perform our holiday show at the historic Marine-On-St-Croix (MN) City Hall for all who can join us in-person or via FacebookLive and YouTubeLive. Our traditional final night of the tour is always December 23 which will be at 7:30pm CentralTime.

Due to Covid we understand how important the live-stream is for many of you. We are counting on your generosity and willingness to share this option with family and friends across the world. We are excited to offer this new option to include SimpleGifts fans not able to attend in-person. From CA, FL, TX, NY, (and everywhere in-between), Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, South America – everyone can join in making this our first-ever, truly global, Christmas celebration. 2020 has been a musician’s worst nightmare but we are not quitting!

Special Feature

Each week of these Marine shows, we will select a lucky winner who requests a special song from the SimpleGifts holiday song library in advance. That winner will receive a link to Zoom-in live during the show to share why that song is important to them before we perform the song they suggest. Once you pick your request from this list, email us your entry at

Our love for music that shares the traditional values and narrative of the Christmas story mean more than ever to SimpleGifts. Please join us and share with others how they can too.
