Music Runs Through It presents a holiday performance with Catherine MacLellan, December 16 at the Charlotte Street Arts Centre.
JUNO Award-winning singer-songwriter Catherine MacLellan is bringing her Christmas Show to Fredericton next week. Sharing beloved classics, self-penned holiday songs and some rare gems, MacLellan will be joined on stage by her long-time guitarist Nick Gauthier and featuring special guest, wordsmith Tanya Davis.
“I’ve always loved the music of Christmas, and the fun times singing in kitchens with friends and family over a glass of eggnog,” said MacLellan. “That is the energy I’ll be bringing with me, hoping that people sing along and catch some of that holiday spirit!”
Last year, MacLellan released her first Christmas album, a self-engineered and self-produced EP, which includes the original single Calling You Home (for the Holidays) and three beloved classics, In The Bleak Midwinter, Blue Christmas, and Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.
“I love the coziness of winter,” she added. “It’s a time for introspection but also a time for gathering around fires and feasts. Christmas shows bring in all of that for me, the balance between joyful silliness and the sacred. It makes me feel like a child again.”
