Jamie Harden’s Ultimate Oldies gang will spread their unique yuletide cheer with “Christmas with the Ultimate Oldies” show, running Dec. 20-21 at the Manchester Arts Center.
“We’re only doing the three shows. We usually do four or five. This is just three shows,” he stressed. So be sure to get your tickets before they’re gone.
The show will include all the best Christmas music that you love from the Oldies gang. There will be classic country Christmas tunes and Trans-Siberian Orchestra to oldies rock ’n’ roll Christmas.
This not to be missed show will feature the special guest fiddle player Hillary Klug.
“She is a phenomenal talent. She’s a great fiddle play and dancer. She does a little bit of both,” Harden said.
Klug will be playing some of her tunes as well.
There will be bluegrass, country, pop as well as the traditional holiday favorites.
“There’s something for everyone. It’s everything,” Harden said. “You may hear a Loretta Lynn Christmas song, followed by a Trans-Siberian Orchestra song. You’re going to get a lot of variety.”
The end of the show will include the story of Christmas, complete with carols.
“We always tell the Christmas story and include the Nativity. We end it on a reverent note. It is important for us to convey the message of the meaning of Christmas.”
Shows will be Friday, Dec. 20 at 7 p.m. and at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Dec. 21 at the Manchester Arts Center. Tickets are available at www.millenniumrep.org.
