Lindsey Stirling has announced her dazzling holiday live-streaming special “Lindsey Stirling: Home for the Holidays,” which originally debuted this past weekend, will re-air this Saturday, December 19th at 12pm PT/3pm ET followed by a live Q&A event. Stirling independently created, produced, and financed the all-new hour-long TV special, which has already drawn over 50,000views from tens of thousands of fans and families around the world. “Lindsey Stirling: Home for the Holidays” features exclusive performances of seasonal favorites off her chart-topping holiday album Warmer In The Winter, such as “Angels We Have Heard On High,” “All I Want For Christmas,” “Let It Snow,” “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy,” and “Carol of the Bells,” brought to life by talented dancers, glittering costumes, a live band, and stylized sets in a high-production quality recorded show that blurs the lines between concert and Christmas special. The one-of-a-kind experience also features Stirling’s beautifully breathtaking performance of her hit “Crystalize,” where she hangs by her hair for a captivating Cirque du Soleil-inspired aerial display, and pop-up performances outside the homes of surprised fans along with heartfelt stories, singing and laughs. Created specially for at-home viewing, “Lindsey Stirling: Home for the Holidays” offers a spectacle greater than any standard venue could provide.

“I had several goals with making a Christmas special,” Stirling recently explained to Forbes.com. “One was that I knew this Christmas was gonna be really hard for a lot of people and I wanted to have some way to cheer up my fans, my little corner of the internet….I [also] needed something to pour my heart into. It’s really hard as an artist when you feel you have nothing to create.” She added, “There is nothing like a live performance, that feeling you get, the energy. You cannot capture that on film no matter what you do. So, I didn’t try to do a live show. I decided I would really lean into the medium I had, which is film. And I had the ability to curate it so that you’re making it this experience that is seen through something that is this big screen. That creates a very different type of energy…I got to go back into all these old ideas that were shut down on previous tours. All kinds of things that aren’t possible in the live show we did [for this]. And it makes so that this is something you could never see unless you were viewing it in this way. It makes it really special, it’s different than just a live show. And I think people are going to be quite shocked at some of the things we do. I did something I’ve never done before in the show, and again, this is something that I don’t think I could ever do on the tour. I spent two and a half months learning the art of hair hanging, which is where you actually learn how to braid your hair in a certain way so that you hang from it like an aerial artist. But instead of harnesses and straps, you’re hanging by your hair…I wanted to make this something unlike anything they’ve ever seen before. No one in the world has ever done that, played a violin and hung by their hair.”
