Put some country in your Christmas at the eighth annual Canadian Country Christmas Tour, in support of Victoria Hospice.

Put some country in your Christmas at the eighth annual Canadian Country Christmas Tour, in support of Victoria Hospice.

The holiday showcase features an acoustic lineup of country hits and Christmas classics performed by five of Canada’s top country recording artists and songwriters, including Duane Steele, Jake Mathews, Lynae and Denis Dufresne, Gary Fjellgaard and Samantha King.

The holiday concert is the first collaboration between the tour and Hospice, which will receive net proceeds from ticket sales.

“It’s a great way of bringing about a new awareness for maybe a demographic that hasn’t necessarily heard about Hospice,” said Tamara Dean, who is organizing the event for Victoria Hospice.

The concert happens Dec. 20 at 7 p.m. at the Upstairs Cabaret, 1127 Wharf St. Doors open at 6 p.m. Tickets are $30, available at hightideentertainment.net, Lyle’s Place, Ditch Records or the Victoria Hospice thrift boutique, 1315 Cook St.

For details, please call 250-952-5720 or visit www.VictoriaHospice.org.
