The Huron Carole is a seasonal music tradition spanning more than 3 decades touring from coast to coast to coast. Expect an evening of contemporary and signature Christmas music, along with stories creatively crafted by Tom Jackson. Award winning musicians Tom McKillip, Darryl Havers, John MacArthur Ellis, Kirby Barber and Chris “the wrist” Nordquist join Tom onstage. This performance will be one of 17 across Canada raising funds for local food banks and family service agencies.
New this year is a 6-part video series entitled “6 Weeks to Christmas”. Weekly releases will happen on Tom’s web site and YouTube Channel between November 13 to December 18. This intimate performance of Tom sharing stories and singing poignant Christmas music, is punctuated with a message to viewers that they are needed, and to seek out people in their community that need help.
“Each year my awareness of how creativity meets humanity enlarges and it’s a joy to play for like-minded people invested in their communities. Path to a Miracle is our theme this year as we pay attention to the light inside all of us…the path we create – and the path we leave behind.”
Tom Jackson, founder of The Huron Carole Benefit Concert Series, is a musician, beloved TV personality (North of 60, Star Trek, Law and Order), and long-time champion for the marginalized. Having experienced life on the streets himself, he discovered music was a way to help others.
