‘Tis the season to be jolly. And an evening with Jim Watson, singing along to Christmas carol favorites will bring a smile to the face of even the most curmudgeonly Scrooge. A founding member of the Red Clay Ramblers and formerly bassist with Robin and Linda Williams’ Fine Band, Watson is a Triangle area musical treasure. On Tuesday, Watson will help make the season bright when he brings his Christmas Show with sing-a-long lyrics to historic Saint Matthew’s Church in Hillsborough.
