Today, for the first time in three years, Andre Bird announces the return in person of its annual report Gezelligheid gigs in chicago Fourth Presbyterian Church. To take place December 12, 13, 14, 15 and 16, the season-defining series of holiday shows will continue a beloved tradition that Bird began in 2009. After switching to a remote live-streaming format for recent editions, this coming winter’s Gezelligheid will cap off a year which saw the Illinois native return to the road bigger than ever. Following the release of the new album Internal issueswhich just hit No. 1 on the NonComm, Americana, and College radio charts, as well as a headlining tour where he and Iron & Wine performed to sold-out crowds at the Greek Theater, Red Rocks, NYC’s Pier 17, Chicago’s Salt Shed and beyond, Gezelligheid will serve as an intimate celebration – a communal experience of comforting music amid the chilly seasonal darkness.

While performances of Andrew Bird’s Gezelligheid typically feature instrumental and improvised fiddle pieces amplified by his spinning horns, attendees can also expect to hear material from Internal issues. With strengths like “Take a picture,” inspired by Joan Didion “Atomized” and more, Pitchfork calls it “a warm, collaborative record that feels like balm for fear and loneliness,” as it finds the Grammy-nominated musician, songwriter, and songwriter stepping into “previously uncharted territory.”

Last Friday, Andrew Bird debuted a stellar, stripped-down rendition of “Make a Picture” in a special Small office gig with Iron & Wine. In a recent and brilliant return to NPR’s office, the two artists performed an effortlessly harmonious set of favorites, highlighting each of their superlative compositions as much as their newly formed friendship. Watch it all go down here:
