Louisiana Hayride Christmas special coming to town

All your favourite entertainers; all of your favourite songs

  • Dec. 11, 2014 2:00 p.m.

The Louisiana Hayride Christmas special is rolling into Martin Exeter Hall (behind the Red Coach Inn) in 100 Mile House on Dec. 14 at 1:30 p.m., and area residents will want to jump on board when it arrives.

Folks will hear the most popular hits from the Louisiana Hayride Show by Hank Williams, Patsy Cline, Roy Orbison and Loretta Lynn.

However, the concert will also be filled with some classic Christmas songs – Let It Snow, Pretty Paper, Little Drummer Boy, Have A Holly Jolly Christmas, White Christmas, It’s Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas and How Great Thou Art to name a few.

Woven throughout the songs are fascinating tidbits of information, delightfully presented by your host and creator of the show, Lori Risling.

Find out why Irving Berlin was phoning radio stations asking them not to play White Christmas, the beautiful song he wrote, or what was the first piece of music broadcast over AM radio on a Christmas Eve in 1906?

This show will take folks on a magical Christmas journey – a delight from start to finish.

You will love the songs; you will love the stories.

Tell your friends and family and get your tickets now. This show tends to sell out.

Tickets are $35 each and are available at Donex, Pharmasave and the 108 Mile Supermarket.
