Playhouse rekindles memories of Christmas

CROSSVILLE — Cumberland County Playhouse decks the halls this holiday season with Mr. Jack Daniel’s Original Silver Cornet Band in “A Hometown Christmas” on Saturday, Dec. 14, at 7:30 p.m. Sure to make everyone’s night “merry and bright,” this nostalgic serving of winter wonder will feature well-known classics such as “O Holy Night,” “Little Drummer Boy,” and many more.

An affectionate re-creation of the 1892 Lynchburg, Tennessee band of the same name, Mr. Jack Daniel’s Original Silver Cornet band has been wowing audiences since 1978, when David Fulmer — founder of the new band — took its talented members on tour. Since then, the band has performed in concert halls throughout the United States and Canada and has delighted audiences with its utterly unique style and joyful musicianship.

A fond look back toward the days of a slower-paced world, this dapperly dressed musical group (dapper for the turn of the last century, of course) will delight the audience with a familiar selection of classic songs and carols of the season, as the “Perfessor” leads the band from song to song.

Sponsored by Crossville Ford-Lincoln, the Silver Cornet Band’s “Hometown Christmas” is more than just a concert: it’s a time-traveling excursion to an era when life moved at a less hurried pace; a time when the Christmas season meant homemade gifts, home-cooked treats, the fellowship of friends and neighbors, and the sound of band music in the air....silver cornet band music, that is.

Currently running at the Playhouse: A Sanders Family Christmas (Rated G, Sponsored by Beef & Barrel, The Blind Zebra, Red’s Ale House and Cannon’s) through December 22, the hilarious farce Suite Surrender (Rated PG) through December 20, and the holiday favorite The Best Christmas Pageant Ever (Rated G, sponsored by M. Stewart Galloway/Cumberland Eye Care) through December 21. Tickets and information are also available for Southern Stars Symphonic Brass, and other events at 931-484-5000.
All CCP productions are made possible through sponsor support, with additional support provided by the Tennessee Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts.
