Blues and Christmas Music

This show is a collection of traditional Blues Christmas tunes from the 20s to the 60s, by the likes of Louis Jordan, Big Joe Turner, BB King, Eric Clapton, Charles Brown, Etta James, and more. It’s not the standard collection of carols, rather it’s a tribute that gives you a look into the souls of fabulous music legends sharing their Christmas Blues. A refreshing take on a holiday concert, it has played to sold-out houses and received rave reviews across British Columbia.

Big Hank is known for his powerful voice and, whether he’s performing with gut-wrenching drive or gently caressing a moment of musical tenderness, you’ll feel the magic of the holiday Blues right down to your toes.  Last seen at Horizon Stage with a Fist Full of Blues Christmas, this Big Hank tribute show features Uncle Wiggly's Hot Shoes Blues BandExternal from Victoria. These former RCA recording artists and members of the Victoria Music Hall of Fame toured extensively in the 80s, opening for such legends as Muddy Waters, Joe Cocker, James Cotton, Koko Taylor, and Paul Butterfield. So take a turn off the ‘traditional’ path and enjoy a glimpse into the heart and soul of Christmas from a Blues point of view.

Big Hank's previous Horizon Stage appearance: 2014
