07 Dec Tinsel & Twang: A Merry-cana Christmas
If you’ve followed the Sweet Dreams & Honky Tonks revue for any length of time you know that we added a holiday show to our offering a few years ago. This year we feature the co-creator of Sweet Dreams, our former band mate and BFF Jami Lampkins, with her stellar guitar picking and blistering banjo. She’ll join the usua ensemble including the incomparable Chris Wagoner on violin and mandolin.
As the show’s title suggests, we perform a wide array of holiday music showcasing country twang and sizzling swing with a generous helping of Americana heart. Tinsel & Twang features seasonal standards and comedy numbers, including songs by country legends Merle Haggard and Patsy Cline, Western Swing renditions of Irving Berlin and Frank Loesser hits, and Charlie Brown’s Christmas theme with a wild bluegrass twist.
