A few years ago, Mark Hibbert of Whiskey Ridge Recording was the sound engineer for a special holiday CD benefiting Cocoon House in Everett. A talented musician and songwriter himself, Hibbert contributed a song entitled “Be a Believer” to the disc. Now the musical director for the monthly Hometown Hootenanny, Hibbert will perform that number with his partner Gale Prouty during the Hootenanny’s Down-Home Country Christmas in downtown Everett.
The holiday show features the Hometown Band performing contemporary and traditional Christmas songs with a country twist. Band members Mark Hibbert, Roger Kehler, Larry Greenleaf, Buck Hammock, Dave McCabe and Jeremy Randall will turn on the holiday cheer with selections that include “Blue Christmas,” “Santa Got a Semi” and “Please Come Home for Christmas.”
Guest artists include The Whateverly Brothers, a folk trio that was an audience hit in the January folk-flavored Hootenanny. The three members of the group share a rich and varied musical history along with a wicked sense of humor, all culminating in a fun and entertaining performance.
Local singer L. Sam Samano will perform “I’ll Be Home with Bells On” with the Hometown Band, along with a medley duet with Prouty that’s reminiscent of the Motown sound.
Larry Thompson offers an original song, “Douglas the Fir Tree,” augmented by a children’s chorus, and a harried quartet of local singers will turn some familiar Christmas carols upside down. And of course, emcee Michael McFadden adds his own zany brand of holiday cheer.
