A Longstanding Fredericton Tradition Continues

After more than ten years, The Capital Complex continues to uphold the tradition of the Christmas Cover Show Series. This event brings together local musicians working to support the Fredericton Food Bank by doing what they love, performing music. These artists year after year choose their favourite, most influential artists who have inspired them throughout their musical career and then bring that music to the stage to help raise money. Originally a one night affair this event has grown to three nights and includes over 12+ acts raising upwards $4,000.00 in 2013 alone.

“It’s definitely become to series of shows that people plan for in advance,” said Zach Atkinson, of The Capital Complex. “I have bands contacting me in July telling me their artist selection. It seems to be on most people’s mind throughout the year, which is awesome because I haven’t even begun to think about this at that point. Overall it’s just a one of those traditions in the Fredericton music scene that people embrace whether they still live in the city or are coming home for the holidays.”
