Downtown Oneonta celebrates with Country Christmas



A few rainy hours didn’t keep downtown Oneonta from enjoying Country Christmas this weekend. The event, sponsored by the Oneonta Business Association, included musicians, speakers, and Santa inviting the Christmas Spirit into town. Roman Street, an acoustic band consisting of Daniel Brett on percussion and brothers Noah and Josh Thompson on guitar, were joined by violinist Melody Duncan at the coffeehouse over the weekend. The Mobile-based band enjoyed their visit to Oneonta by playing music from their Christmas album, “Christmas Rhumba.” Charlotte Murphree, dressed in a spirited holiday outfit, also performed an inspirational comedy routine at the Country Christmas coffeehouse. – Nicole Singleton
