Wilson Fairchild Brings Christmas Cheer to The Lincoln Theatre


Marion, VA: The Town of Marion is pleased to welcome back the country music duo, Wilson Fairchild, for a Christmas Show at the historic Lincoln Theatre on Saturday, December 16th at 7pm.


Tickets are $25 reserved seating.


"It's a full band show with nothing but Christmas music," says Langdon Reed about the upcoming show in downtown  Marion, VA. "We'll sing everything from an old Christmas hymn to 'Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.'"


The show is in keeping with their family-fun approach to entertaining using their signature humor and storytelling style. It's the perfect gift for friends and family!


Wilson Fairchild is made up of Wil and Langdon Reed from the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. The duo, also referred to as "the Reid Boys," have been writing, performing and playing music together their entire lives. With influences such as The Statler Brothers or Ricky Skaggs, their passion and drive for country music is inspiring.


Along with their outstanding harmony, which is an inherent trademark from their fathers, Harold and Don Reid, members of the Statler Brothers, Wil and Langdon are prolific songwriters who have had over 30 songs published and recorded. They can also play many different instruments, which makes an impressive portfolio and contributes to their unique style.


Join them for a special one-night only event at the beautiful Lincoln Theatre. Tickets can be purchased by contacting The Lincoln Theatre Box Office at (276)783-6092 or by visiting
