In a week from now, I’ll be in wintery Alberta with Gordon Belsher and Nils Ling, performing our show “The Truth About Christmas”! What is this show all about, you ask? Well, let me tell you…
“The Truth About Christmas” is a unique blend of storytelling, songs and fiddling. Sure, there’s a holiday theme to it, but even if you’re the Grinch, you’re bound to enjoy this show. Equal parts comical, heartwarming and toe-tapping, the show delivers all of your favourite parts of Christmas with a genuine Atlantic Canadian flair.
Nils Ling is an author, playwright, filmmaker, and stage performer who lives and writes in the small community of Breadalbane, PEI. He is a former CBC Radio columnist and host who wrote and toured for a decade with one of the most successful one-man shows in Canadian Theatre history, The Truth About Daughters.
Gordon Belsher brings a glowing warmth to the stage with a gentle charm that has become his trademark. His latest solo CD won “Roots Traditional Recording of the Year” at the 2013 Music PEI Awards. As accompanist and featured vocalist for several PEI fiddlers including Cynthia MacLeod and Richard Wood, Gordon has toured extensively across North America, Europe and Australia.
…….And then there’s me! You already know me, but here’s a fun picture anyway.
