Country Christmas Spectacular - Wednesday, December 18, 6-8 pm

Square Country Christsmas Spectacular

An eclectic array of musical performers, each offering their take on holiday music including traditional, contemporary and original, are slated to appear at the Hampton History Museum for the “Country Christmas Spectacular” on Wednesday, December 18, 6:00-8:00 p.m.

Attendees can celebrate the season with some of the region’s most innovative Americana musicians: “grunge-grass” band Tornado Bait; swamp blues duo ROEBUCK; honky-tonk angel Gina Dalmas of The Heart Stompers; classic country singer/songwriter Jack Green; and the sultry songstress-led band The Lonely Teardrops; plus a special Hoop Performance by Wicked Rose Bunnie Performance Arts.

Mastermind behind this cavalcade of Christmas cheer is Msesippi McQuown, the irrepressible lead of Tornado Bait. In addition to engaging a host of talent for the holiday extravaganza, she is creating an ice fishing game that harkens back to her Midwestern roots, and she will encourage the audience to make paper Christmas stockings with provided art materials at this family friendly event.
