Martha's Trouble to Present "Christmas in Your Town" Shows on December 5, 7, 13 and More

Jen and Rob Slocumb are the pop-folk duo Martha's Trouble.
Awesome sweater, Rob!
Martha's Trouble is a pop-folk duo with a national fan base whose members, Jen and Rob Slocumb, live in our community. I recently posted about MT here. They love doing Christmas concerts, have a holiday CD and are offering their music through a novel effort called Christmas in Your Town. It involves small venues, home concerts and an internet performance.

Note local show dates 12/5 in Auburn and 12/7 and 12/13 in Opelika. Concerts are free, and we have the opportunity to support the effort through crowdfunding with premiums!
See more in the news release below.

PRESS RELEASE:

Martha’s Trouble To Continue
Annual Christmas Shows Tradition
With The Help Of Fans Via PledgeMusic

Husband-and-wife duo Martha’s Trouble (Rob and Jen Slocumb) will be coming to your town for their 8th annual traditional Christmas show in December. With a new and exciting twist, the pair is reaching out to fans for funding help in keeping the “Christmas In Your Town” shows free to attendees via PledgeMusic. (Here is the link to the Pledge Music Campaign: http://www.christmasinyourtown.com.) In addition to shows in the Opelika/Auburn, Birmingham, and Hamilton, Ontario markets, Martha’s Trouble is also planning a StageIt show for fans to watch around the world.

Says Jen: “These shows really are special to us and to our community. We get to play some of our favorite Christmas songs, share a beautiful evening together, and it's a great way to get into the Christmas season.

“The ‘Christmas In Your Town’ concert is a concert for the community that is made possible by the community and we need your support. We would like to make all of the Christmas concerts we do free for the community, something we all do together to spread the Christmas cheer.

“How? We’ve teamed up with PledgeMusic to give fans some really cool stuff in return for pledging and help in funding. At the PledgeMusic campaign page, fans will find a whole range of exclusive items -- from signed copies of our Christmas albums to sponsoring a show! When they ‘pledge,’ not only can they get an exclusive and the digital download of the music, but they’ll also get special access to more cool stuff like videos from the rehearsals for the tour, behind the scenes pictures and updates while traveling, and maybe even an unreleased Christmas track or two, only for pledgers.

“We’re really excited about this new experience and are hoping the fans will continue to be a part of it. We want ‘Christmas In Your Town’ to continue year after year with the idea that the fans are part of it!”
