Each year, the Historic Hemet Theatre hosts a December Christmas show featuring a top tribute band. On Saturday December 18th, HHT will host “Merry Little Christmas,” a tribute to Linda Ronstadt, performed by Ronstadt Revival.

“Merry Little Christmas” was the biggest selling holiday album in the country in 2000, recorded by Linda Ronstadt under the Elektra/Asylum Records label.

This concert will feature a compilation of holiday songs from that album, plus the greatest hits of Ronstadt’s career.

Linda Ronstadt was considered to be the most successful female singer of the 1970’s. She recorded 24 albums across a diverse range of genres, including rock, country, light opera and latin. She earned eleven Grammy Awards, three American Music Awards, two Academy of Country Music Awards, and an Emmy.
