Celtic band 1066 is just one of the many performers who will return for the annual Christmas at the Clarke event.

Holiday concert supports two Mission-based charities

17th annual Christmas at the Clarke benefit concert takes place on Wednesday, Dec. 14 at 7 p.m.

The holiday spirit will fill the air at the Clarke Theatre on Wednesday, Dec. 14 at 7 p.m., when the 17th annual Christmas at the Clarke Benefit Concert takes place.

Multi-award winning singer and songwriter Kenny Hess will be there this year. If you haven’t heard Hess perform live, then this is your chance.

Performing since he was a young boy, and working with some of the biggest names in music, Hess has a voice and a style that gets his audience on their feet.

After last year’s great performance, Boilie’s Goat will be also be returning to the Clarke stage.

Two powerhouse local performers, Jennie Bice and Tony Ivan O’Hara, have formed this dynamic duo, performing music  ranging from blues and rock to ballads.

As Jennie puts it, they “will take the audience on a multi-faceted musical odyssey,” and the organizers are sure that they will leave the audience wanting more.

The band Horizon is performing this year, featuring five talented and entertaining musicians from the Fraser Valley: Rick Noel, Fred Schmidt, Asger Hansen, Warren Grosland and featuring Crystal Hicks on vocals.

Horizon performs a wide range of Christmas songs. There will be music there for every taste, including old Christmas favorites, blues, jazz and  rock and roll.

The group 1066, everyone’s favorite Celtic band with an attitude, is coming back. These talented entertainers are a favourite at the event every time they perform and in minutes will have the audience laughing, clapping and singing along.

Get your tickets early, load up a bag or two of groceries for the food bank, and come and enjoy the concert.

The event helps two worthwhile community organizations – the Christmas Bureau and the shelter programs operated by the Women’s Resource Society of the Fraser Valley.

Doors open at 6 p.m. so people can drop off the donations they bring for the food bank. Seating begins at 6:30 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m.

Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for seniors and students, and $10 for children 12 and under, and people are asked to bring donations to the food bank.

Tickets are available in Mission at London Drugs, Rex Cox Men’s Wear, Shoppers Drug Mart, Prospera Credit Union, Fraser Valley Building Supplies and local credit unions. They are also available in Abbotsford at House of James. For group tickets or for more information, call the theatre at 604-820-3961.
