Ventfort Hall celebrates the season with a Holiday Cabaret performed by singer Sherri James Buxton with Bob Shepherd accompanying seasonal songs, songs from Broadway musicals and the Great American Songbook, as well as traditional favorites and a sing along of traditional carols including The Twelve Days of Christmas with parts to 12 (or more) audience members.

Sherri James Buxton performs as an interpreter of a wide range of genres from standards and show tunes to jazz, winning acclaim for her warmth, depth, versatility and technique. She has appeared on and off Broadway and in many cabaret venues.

She got her first professional break at the age of seventeen when she was cast as The Girl in an off Broadway production of “The Fantasticks”. She was in the original Broadway production of “Look to the Lilies” and has performed at The Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera and Kansas City Starlight Theatre.

Locally she has appeared at the Pittsfield Jazz Festival and her jazz group, the Sherri James Buxton Trio, was the main attraction in the Cranwell Resort “Music Room” supper club. Sherri has also performed at The Colonial Theatre, The Norman Rockwell Museum, The Berkshire Athenaeum, The Gateways Inn, Mission Bar and Tapas, Castle Street Café and the Seven Hills Cabaret. Sherri teaches at the Berkshire Music School where her popular Cabaret Workshop is in the 20th season.

Bob Shepherd has been a working pianist in New England for 70 years. He plays beautiful jazz music in various venues from solo to big band and especially enjoys accompanying singers who consider him a musician’s magician

The mansion will be beautifully decorated for the holiday season, and a holiday tea will follow the program.
