Christmas in the Smokies

We attended the Larkin’s annual Christmas show in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee December 10-12. The highlight of this show was the first ever appearance of The Lewis Tradition. The group was Lewis Phillips, banjo, guitar, lead and harmony vocals; Janis Lewis Phillips, lead and harmony vocals; Travis Lewis, bass; Jameson Lewis, keyboard; and Bruce Watkins, mandolin, fiddle, guitar and harmony vocals.
