The Lanham Brothers Jamboree Christmas Show returns to the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame and Museum this Saturday. Brothers Randy and Barry Lanham will celebrate roots music, clogging, and Kentucky arts with Christmas songs and entertainment to ring in the holiday season.

The interactive, fun family show begins at 7 p.m. and features music, dance, skits, and loads of crowd interaction. While this year’s show is already sold out, it is also professionally recorded for broadcast on KET.

“You never know when you might become part of the show,” Randy Lanham said. “We just love to do this Christmas show. We’re so blessed. It’s one of our biggest of the year, and people say they walk away feeling inspired like they just went to church.”

The brothers are also streaming the show in nursing homes and at the Wendell Foster Center for free. 

Sponsors for this year’s show are United Health Care, Modern Welding, Commonwealth Rolled Products, Kenergy, Karen and Claud Porter, and Atmos Energy. The show is in honor of Crossroads Owensboro, and all of the proceeds will benefit Volunteer Owensboro, a regional nonprofit bringing awareness to the community’s needs. 

“We love doing the Christmas show because you can truly feel the spirit of Christmas,” Randy Lanham said. “We love to feature the youth and for folks to hear the singing, watch the dancing, and laugh at the skits and comedy. I think it sets the mode for Christmas.”

The star-studded lineup features artists from near and far to pair with the Footstompin Express Cloggers. Lanham said attendees can expect a Christmas-themed show with a “bluegrass twist.”

“We are honored to be a part of such a giving community,” Barry Lanham said. “The camaraderie among the cast, crew, and audience is energetic. Everyone is in the Christmas spirit.”

Guests and viewers can expect traditional music with a bluegrass flavor. Randy Lanham added they constantly strive to keep “Christ in Christmas.”

“The fact that we sold out three weeks before the show just blows my mind,” Lanham said. “We love that people value the show that much.”
