Pick Of The Day: The Huron Carole

Started by First Nations actor and entertainer Tom Jackson in the late 1980s, this concert has grown into a holiday tradition in many communities across Canada. In addition to celebrating the seasonal spirit, the show also serves as a vehicle for raising money for food banks in the communities where Jackson and his troupe entertain.

Guest artists for this year’s Huron Carole¬†are George Canyon, Beverley Mahood, One More Girl and Shannon Gaye. The concert goes tonight at Conexus Arts Centre at 7:30 p.m. and tickets are $42-$92. Again, proceeds go to support local food banks. And to give you a taste of the talent that will be on display here’s the video for the song “Maybe” by One More Girl (a B.C. duo composed of sisters Britt and Carly McKillop):
