Actors and performers become familiar faces to us because we see them on the screen or stage so much. We almost feel as if we know them. We embrace them even more when we know they are living among us in our great home state of Michigan. We accept them warmly into our homes via our television screens because, in a way, they’ve accepted us.
One such actor and performer is Chelsea’s very own Emmy Award-winning and Tony Award-nominated Jeff Daniels.
With nearly 400 songs, 300 live gigs and engagements, and five albums to his credit, Daniels’ songwriting continually draws comparison to Arlo Guthrie, the late John Prine and Steve Goodman.
Daniels returns to the Wharton Center for Performing Art’s virtual stage on New Year’s Eve for two livestreamed concert experiences from his home.
The intimate and entertaining shows will feature songs from Daniels’ new “Alive and Well Enough” album, weaving in personal stories that only he can tell. Daniels will also follow up the performances with a short Q&A from questions submitted during the show.
Tickets to the virtual concerts are on sale now and will be processed through crowdcast.com. Ticket purchasers will receive a private link to the event via email. To purchase tickets to either the 8 p.m. or 10:30 p.m. performance Dec. 31, visit the Wharton Center website at whartoncenter.com for the Crowdcast link.
