How early do you start getting in the holiday spirit? The day after Halloween? The day after Thanksgiving? The first day of December?
If you are anything like the Petersen family, it is as soon as possible. It might not be Thanksgiving yet, but they could not wait any longer to start performing Christmas tunes. Their beautiful rendition of the classic Christmas song “Christmas Time’s a-Comin’” will blow you away!
Christmas time brings families together and there is no better way to bond than singing Christmas tunes together. This is lucky for The Petersen Band because they are family. The Petersen’s are a band of siblings and one family friend from Branson, Missouri.
They are all ready for the Christmas spirit early this year. After this year, who isn’t ready for Christmas time and the joy it brings?

Their bluegrass sound brings a fun and unique sound to their Christmas tunes.
There are not many Christmas songs that are played to the instruments of a fiddle, banjo, mandolin, and dobro. You might think you have heard all types of Christmas music, but you have not until you have listened to bluegrass Christmas. Bluegrass Christmas is Americana through and through.
The Petersen Band picked a Christmas song that has been sung by the country greats including Johnny Cash and Emmylou Harris. They are sticking to their country and bluegrass roots, especially during Christmas time
Ellen Petersen Haygood is the amazing lead vocalist. Her sweet voice is perfect for the gentle Christmas song. Add her amazing voice with the harmonies of Matt and Julianne and you will find yourself with goosebumps. Their voices are a gift from God and sound so beautiful together. The Petersens’ perform mainly in and around Branson, Missouri.
Thankfully, their YouTube channel lets the entire world get into the Christmas spirit early with them.
You know a band, such as The Petersens, is truly talented when their live performance sounds just like a recording. The Petersens performed “Christmas Time’s a-Comin’” live, even though they did not need to, because they stand true in their amazing talents.
The Petersens have gotten many viewers in the mood for Christmas magic. Viewers have commented,
“After a tough week I feel blessed to start the Christmas season with The Petersens.”
“This deserves to join the canon of Christmas songs! I imagine I’ll be hearing it in my mind a lot this next month or so, and perhaps even singing it when I walk my dog.”
“What a great way to start Christmas time! Thank you for brightening up the most wonderful time of the year! :)”
