Direct from Las Vegas, Carpenters Tribute Concert: A Christmas Portrait, stars Sally Olson as Karen Carpenter and Ned Mills as Richard Carpenter, backed up by some of the country’s top musicians. It is THE definitive show celebrating the music and legacy of the famed brother-sister duo, taking the audience back in time to an old fashioned Christmas.
The show recreates the nostalgia of the Carpenters’ 1977 and 1978 Christmas television specials, in addition to the silly and endearing humor that will make you feel like a kid again! The show features the holiday classics “Merry Christmas, Darling”, “Sleigh Ride”, “The Christmas Song” and much more, AND ALAO INCLUDES MANY OF THE CARPENTERS’ GREATEST HITS! Sally is the first-ever and only Karen Carpenter tribute artist to perform with Legends in Concert.
During my streaming virtual interview with Sally and Ned before their show,
I mentioned, “I have seen an Elvis, Sinatra and other
Tributes but not a Carpenter Tribute concert. The beautiful songs of the 70’s aren’t around anymore.”
Ned answered, “Imagine hearing a song’s words for a change, this concert is a way to escape to a more innocent time with family and friends.”
Sandy explained, “I feel this is a special, one-of-a-kind Christmas concert and the audience will ALSO enjoy songs from the only Authentic Carpenters Tribute Concert.
All of the excitement of the Carpenters Christmas show transports you into a happy world. Sally Olson and Ned Mills excelled in their roles as Karen and Richard Carpenter as though they just stepped out of the past.”
You’ll enjoy every detail of the Carpenters 1976 UK Tour from the vintage costumes worn by both, to feeling the emotion of each song. Some of these selections were “We’ve Only Just begun”, “Yesterday Once More”, “Superstar” and Richard’s classical piano feature, a Spike Jones parody of “Close To You”.
Sally zipped through Karen’s quick drum solo and Ned played a perfect rendition of Richard’s classical piano feature. They perform so well together and are both interested in providing the “look” and the “Sound” of the Carpenters. If you saw the
Carpenters in the 70’s this concert will thrill you! Along with a touching musical playlist, they also offer some comedy. What a great mix!
Since Herb Alpert’s A&M’s record company represented the Carpenters’ records, Sally and Ned also perform a tribute to Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass. Their tribute concert is a great musical mix!
