Get in the Christmas spirit with the talented cast of the Louisiana Hayride Show.

After five years of successful shows across Western Canada, the cast and crew of the Louisiana Hayride Show are bringing their very special Christmas show to you.

This unique performance will feature some of the most popular hits from the Louisiana Hayride Show but, most importantly, it will be filled with your favourite Christmas songs.

Hank Williams has promised to show up and be on his best behaviour, and will be singing a couple of his big hits.

Always a favourite, Patsy Cline will be there with her signature song, Crazy and one of her favourite Christmas songs, Let It Snow.

Roy Orbison is back with a couple of ‘pretty’ songs; Pretty Paper and Pretty Woman.

Loretta Lynn also promises to make an appearance.

The cast of multi-talented musicians includes William Brookfield on double keyboard, guitar and vocals.

Enjoy the exceptional talent with Brookfield’s rendition of Christmas songs by Johnny Cash and Jim Reeves, as well as his version of Little Drummer Boy.

Mike Melnichuk adds stand-up bass, electric guitar and oh-so-smooth vocals when he treats the audience to songs like Have A Holly Jolly Christmas, White Christmas and It’s Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas.

Gil Risling adds electric and acoustic guitar and vocals when in character as Hank Williams and Roy Orbison.

Andrea Anderson, whose vocals are second to none as Patsy Cline and Loretta Lynn, will perform a moving version of How Great Thou Art.

She’ll also be singing a couple of other Christmas favourites.

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

This show will take you on a magical Christmas journey.

Tickets are available at the Shuswap Lake Estates office, Touch A Texas and Wearabouts in Salmon Arm, or online at
