info@earlvilleoperahouse.com
earlvilleoperahouse.com

Starts at 8pm at the Oneida Community Mansion House, 170 Kenwood Avenue, Oneida, NY 13421. Country Christmas Singalong Spectacular has a predominantly swing bottom line with a barn-raisin' country savor that's absolutely irresistible. Zara Bode and Emily Miller really are sweet, their voices like meadowlarks and they boast a crack outfit behind 'em, anchored by a guy who's astonishing on guitar.The combination of all that results in a zesty, spirited, and sometimes backwoods reverential disc that's also just plain fun. Look at Country Christmas as though it were the LP Dan Hicks, the Andrews Sisters, and Dolly Parton never teamed up to put out F.A.M.E.
