TRURO – The magic of the Christmas season will come alive on the Cobequid Educational Centre stage later this month.
Cape Breton songstress Rita MacNeil will join international renowned composer and pianist Frank Mills for 'Sharing Christmas' on Nov. 23.
This unique performance of music, stories and memories brings the two artists back together again following the tremendous success of their 2010 Spirit of Christmas Tour.
MacNeil's Christmas tours are synonymous with the seasonal holiday and her Christmas releases continue to be amongst her best sellers.
Mills has once again been coaxed out of retirement to join MacNeil on tour, his affable nature and award-winning style being a perfect fit for an evening of holiday celebration.
An award-winning singer and songwriter, MacNeil's career took off following her performances at Vancouver's Expo '86.
Her first big hit, Flying On Your Own, followed by her signature song Working Man, set off a career that had led to Juno, Canadian Country Music Association and East Coast Music awards, including the 2005 Lifetime Achievement Award.
She's a member of the Order of Canada and Order of Nova Scotia.
Mills is a multi-award winning million selling composer who is most well-known around the world for 'Music Box Dancer.' The tune, released in 1976, reached number one in a staggering 26 countries.
The performance begins at 7 p.m. at CEC, however, tickets can be purchased at the Marigold Cultural Centre on Prince Street in Truro, or by calling the centre at 897-4004.
