The last time I saw the Mount Baker Toppers was at the Ferndale Old Settler’s Picnic in July. They’re a bunch of guys who put on a great program: some really topnotch barbershop harmonies, with a lot of old time favorites. I’ve never seen their holiday program, but I’d venture there’s no finer way to pass an hour or two on a cold December afternoon.

Plus, the group’s director is a pretty funny guy.
