Judith Owen Holiday Sing Along


Judith Owen Holiday Sing Along

Musician/songwriter Judith Owen and her husband, actor and humorist Harry Shearer, will send up the season with their annual Holiday Sing-Along tour with special guests Teddy Thompson, Alice Ripley, and more on 12.07.

The duo will be providing holiday music, mirth and guest performances from their friends. With a circle of friends this expansive, anyone can show up and past guests have included Owen’s close friend and collaborator Richard Thompson, Christopher Guest, Weird Al Yankovic, Jane Lynch, Keb’ Mo’, Loudon Wainwright and Fountains of Wayne.

Geared toward Christmas lovers and Scrooges alike, the “Holiday Sing-Along” grew out of the Christmas gatherings Owen and Shearer (The Simpsons, Spinal Tap) would host around their family piano, and the tour continues to reflect that intimate, anything-goes spirit. The show is divided into two acts. The first features performances by Owen, Shearer and their cast of guests, each of whom picks two holiday songs of their choice — selections range from sentimental (“Winter Wonderland,” “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”) to irreverent (“F&*k Christmas,” “Jesus Was a Dreidel Spinner”). Each year Shearer writes a new satirical song (last year’s: “Why No Bail-Out for Santa?”) and often performs the Spinal Tap classic “Christmas with the Devil.” As guests finish their songs, they remain on the stage (which Owen decorates as a cozy, Christmastime living room), steadily building the festive mood.

The second act is an audience sing-along of American classics, rounds and carols, with Owen providing specially designed songbooks. For the crowd favorite “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” Owen divides the audience into 12 groups and awards kitschy holiday gifts to the best.
