Over the last decade or so this event has become a holiday tradition in the cities its held in across Canada. The organizer is First Nations musician and actor Tom Jackson, and this year’s stop in Regina is on Thursday Dec. 10.
Jackson released a new album called Ballads Not Bullets in October so he’ll likely perform a song or two off of that. As always, there’s some guest artists. This year it’s jazz musician Kristian Alexandrov and R&B/soul singer Shannon Gaye.
The Huron Carole goes Thursday evening at Conexus Arts Centre, and proceeds go to the Regina Food Bank. You can find out more on theevent and ticket prices on the RFB website, and to give you a taste of what to expect here’s video from 2013 of Alexandrov and Gaye performing “Baby, I Love You”
