Canadian Music Hall of Famer Andy Kim (writer of the Archies’ hit Sugar Sugar) has been putting on his CanCon-stacked charity Christmas variety show for a decade and a half now. His 15th edition, as usual, features a big shiny list of maple talent – plus British comedy legend Tracey Ullman and all-star Springsteen saxophonist Jake Clemons.
Performers this year include Ron Sexsmith, Sloan, Bif Naked, Men Without Hats, Crash Test Dummies, Jane Siberry, Lorraine Segato of The Parachute Club and Jessica Mitchell with Tim Hicks. You can also expect some surprises. Proceeds go to CAMH’s Gifts of Light Program.
December 4 at Queen Elizabeth Theatre (190 Princes’ Blvd), doors 7 pm, all ages. Tickets from $52.50. ticketmaster.ca.
