ABOUT THIS CONCERT
LIVE ON STAGE | The greatest holiday tradition of them all is back! Watkins and the Rapiers will return to The Little’s theater 1 for their truly one-of-a-kind December extravaganza.
Bass/guitarist/vocalist Kerry Regan has written Christmas songs since the 1970s, and the band first performed holiday tunes live in 1997. In 1998, the band’s four songwriters wrote enough songs for a full-on Christmas show. That year the group had 11 original holiday songs. These tunes form the core of a Christmas repertoire that Watkins revisits, augments, and adds to every December for the now annual Christmas show. Today, Watkins has over 70 holiday songs. Song titles include, “Do Something Kinda Vaguely Good for Christmas,” “Arise Ye North Pole Workers,” “Open Enrollment Period Waltz,” and more.
In December 2016, the band debuted It’s Christmas in December as part of The Little Concert Series, and has performed (almost) annually in Theatre 1 or the Cafe since.
