Canadian Country Christmas tours the country each year raising money for local charities

It’s a Canadian Country Christmas

'It’s both kinds of music! Country and Christmas!'

“It’s both kinds of music! Country and Christmas!” says Canadian Country Christmas founder and performer Sean Hogan, who, as well as being local resident of Campbell River, also wrote the theme song that started the tour and remains a big part part of the night’s performance from province to province come late fall every year.

For over 12 years – yes for 13 years now – this family fun/adult fun; festive seasonal and entertaining concert show has delighted audiences from coast to coast.

This year already the show has played every province from Ontario to B.C. The entire tour has 18 dates across Canada with four shows left on the Island.

It hits Campbell River once again this Sunday at the Eagles Hall. The show is a fundraiser for the Kinsmen of Campbell River who raise money for kids in our own backyard. In the past, the show has raised proceeds for the Hospice Society and the Tara School of Irish Dance and for several other groups at most stops on the tour. For example, money was rasied for Peace River Hospital District whcih got nearly $12,000 from the show and will be applied to a new high tech mobility chair. Over $3,000 was raised for the Canadian Cancer Society for away from home accommodations in Prince George. Funds have also been raised for local food bank collections along the way and $1,000 was raised for a historic library needing repairs in Seaforth Ontario.

The Campbell River show has Sean Hogan singer/songwriter and country award winning artists Thomas Wade and Jamie Warren on the bill, as well as a young local Campbell River band Non-Stop Talk, fronted by Colin Massie, that Hogan believes in.

To date now, the tour has raised close to $200,000 and locals that have attended have made it a part of tradition to take it in when they can and rev up to the Christmas season with a good time felt in the hearts made strong by giving back to the community via the concert night out.

Tickets are just $27 and are available at the Tidemark theatre and the Eagles hall. Proceeds go to the Kinsmen for Kids initiative in Campbell River.
