lime kiln theaterLime Kiln Theater will kick off 2018 with its annual Christmas Tree Burn on Saturday 12-3 p.m. The burn will take place at Lime Kiln Theater, and it is free and open to the public.

Chili and hot chocolate will be provided by The Southern Inn Restaurant, while all other beverages are BYOB. The event will feature a live performance by the band Scuffletown.

The rain date for the Tree Burn is Sunday, Jan. 7.

Scuffletown is an acoustic, high-energy trio comprised of John Whitlow on harmonica, accordion and vocals; Marc Carraway on guitar and vocals; and Vaughan Mairs on standup bass and vocals. The band has performed its unique blend of roots, jazz, world, bluegrass and original music throughout the mid-Atlantic region for two decades. For more on Scuffletown, please visit
