For many in Newfoundland, these concerts have become a beloved highlight of the season, as the band blends old and new Christmas music with friends and special guests in an evening full of seasonal warmth and good humour.
In Corner Brook the band will be performing at the Arts & Culture Centre on December 4, just before they bring their Christmas shows to Toronto, Ottawa and the Maritimes. The St. John’s shows will be held on Dec. 21 and Dec. 22 at Gower Street United Church, just in time to kick off the Yuletide celebration. All shows in Newfoundland will start at 7:30 pm, with doors open at 6:30.
During these special concerts the band will be performing music from their hit album ‘This is a Christmas Album by the Once’. In St. John’s the band will be joined by actor, playwright and raconteur Robert Chafe, as well as master traditional musicians Emila Bartellas and Aaron Collis, while Corner Brook will see them joined by some old friends.
Tickets for the St. John’s shows will be available at Fred’s Records and O’Brien’s Music on Tuesday Nov. 5, while tickets for Corner Brook are available now at the Corner Brook Arts & Culture Centre box office.
