Just as legendary musicians Sharon, Lois & Bram brought happiness to four generations of children and their grown-ups, Sharon Hampson and her daughter Randi are continuing to share the music of Sharon, Lois and Bram with yet another generation of families. Through this up-close-and-personal sing-along gathering, and like their first two virtual concerts, Live in your Living Room and Back by Popular Demand, this is a real family affair featuring Sharon and Randi, Randi’s sons Ethan and Elijah, their girlfriends Clare and Sofia, and Randi’s beau Jim. Sharon and Randi are also expecting some special friends to sing their favorite holiday tunes, including singer/songwriter Josh Lovelace, who will be joining in from Knoxville, TN, Jacy Dawn Valeras, who will be singing one of Lois’s favorite holiday songs from Boston, and Roy George, who will “Zoom” in from Virginia.
At this Holiday Party, viewers will be able to see each other’s festival holiday sweaters or favourite holiday dress-up outfits and sing along with each other and the performers. Conceived as a “by family, for family” experience, the show will include such holiday favourites as “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”, “Jingle Bells”, “I’m a Little Latka”, and “Candles Long Ago” and such well-loved Sharon, Lois & Bram favourites as “Comin’ Round the Mountain” and, of course, “Skinnamarink.”
“Music was always a major part of our holiday celebrations. We were famous for our holiday singalong parties at the Hampson household. This is our chance to share some of that musical magic with our audience,” says Sharon Hampson. “We are thrilled to have this chance to once again see the smiling faces of our guests singing along with favourite tunes, old and new.”
“We love seeing families at home singing together. It really feels like we were all connected through the music,” adds Randi Hampson. “We’re especially excited to see kids and perhaps adults dressed up in their most festive attire!”
As an added bonus, Sharon and Randi will be sharing Lois’s famous brownie recipe and Sharon’s mother’s recipe for potato pancakes.
Since 1978, Sharon has been pre-eminent in all aspects of family entertainment across North America as a member of the trio Sharon, Lois & Bram.

For their years of work providing the best in participatory music for children and their families, Sharon & Bram, along with Lois, were inducted into The Order of Canada, their country’s highest honor.
