At just 16, Ian Ridenhour is an incredibly accomplished musician with 10 years of performing, recording and composing experience under his belt. After winning big on the “Who Wants to be a Millionaire“ Whiz Kid week earlier this year, Ridenhour used his sizable purse to fund his new album, Cry About It. Ridenhour will play the album’s astute rock songs, defined by his energetic piano playing, at his holiday extravaganza show in Black Mountain. Listeners can expect a few festive covers and a selection of never-before-heard originals along with his fan-favorites. Ridenhour also promises performances by surprise guest artists and, in keeping with the spirit of the season, a Santa hat or two. White Horse Black Mountain hosts the show on Friday, Dec. 23, at 8 p.m. $10/$12. whitehorseblackmountain.com. Photo courtesy of Ian Ridenhour
