October is a double Christmas celebration if you’re a Jess Moskaluke fan. This JUNO Award winner and Platinum-selling country music artist has announced her “A Small Town Christmas” holiday shows in Yorkton, SK, on November 29 and Toronto, ON, on December 11, 2018, as well as the release of her, A Small Town Christmas, on October 5 via MDM Recordings Inc./Universal Music Canada.
The most traditional and festive of holidays, of celebration, of reflection and of family is Christmas and it’s the music that brings home all those emotions that come with the season. There’s just something special about Christmas music and once you hear A Small Town Christmas, you’ll find yourself immersed into the magic that is Moskaluke’s voice. Add to this, her collaborations with Cassadee Pope, Paul Brandt, the Hunter Brothers and The Lovelocks on this nine-track EP, and you’ll be taken away to a place that is full of holiday cheer and quite possibly tears of joy. I’ve heard Moskaluke perform Christmas carols and I’ve been carried away by her pitch-perfect voice that transcends many into a “state of elated bliss.”
“To me, Christmas is all about friends and family. So when I thought about making a Christmas record, I knew I wanted as many of my friends on it as I could have. This record is a collection of the most memorable Christmas songs to me – whether it’s my favourite carol to sing, or my favourite track to listen to, or the song my Mom played on repeat during the holidays as a kid. It’s a fun, reminiscent project and to have Hunter Brothers, Paul, Cassadee, and The Lovelocks all on this record really makes it extra special to me!”

November 29: Painted Hand Casino, Yorkton, SK
December 11: Harbourfront Centre Theatre, Toronto, ON

Hi all. I’m Nanci Dagg. I am from Winnipeg, Manitoba, and have lived my entire life here. There is nothing I like better than supporting local artists followed by supporting Canadian artists. Although I was a classic rock gal, my go to genre is country. Something about this music that just makes me feel great. I can be found at most country music concerts and shows (from someone’s house to really large venues) taking lots of pictures. Music and photography are two of my passions. Add to this mix, writing about artists, well let’s say, life doesn’t get better than this.
