Canadian Pacific Holiday Stops at Freight House Farmers Market
December 4, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Beginning in Montreal two trains will make the festive journey, travelling through both the U.S. and Canada to bring holiday cheer to 164 communities along CP’s network. Each event is free, with CP encouraging attendees to open their cupboards and wallets to help address hunger needs in their communities. Local food banks will be accepting donations at each stop to ensure those less fortunate have enough healthy food this holiday season.
Entertainment at our stop include:
Willy Porter has been turning first time listeners into die-hard fans for more than two decades and has shared world stages with music icons Jeff Beck, Tori Amos, and Paul Simon, carving out a successful solo career as an artist who makes music that resonates long after the last guitar chord fades. Whether in the studio or on stage, Willy Porter gifts listeners with an unforgettable ride, embodying the very best of what live music has to offer.
“I am both grateful and excited to be a part of the CP Holiday Train’s 20th Anniversary Band as we roll across North America! Each whistle stop combines humanitarian effort with the musical spirit of the holidays making the CP Holiday Train one of the greatest projects I have had the honour to be a part of!”
With multiple radio hits drawn from six scorching studio albums plus several EPs, a pair of live records, and a retrospective, The Trews are among the most prolific, electrifying, and innovative rock bands on the planet. The Nova Scotia-bred, Hamilton, ON-based combo of singer/guitarist Colin MacDonald, guitarist John-Angus MacDonald, bassist Jack Syperek, and drummer Chris Gormley — songwriters all — has won universal acclaim for both their dazzling live performances and wildly accessible songs.
“This will be our first time touring by train, which is something we’ve always wanted to do. To do it while being able to raise some money to put food on local shelves at this most important time of year makes it extra special for us. We can’t wait!”
