A 1940s family-run radio station is moments from going live with their annual Christmas Eve broadcast full of familiar holiday carols and yuletide stories. In the booth, young love sparks between Kitty, the weather reporter, and Danny, the sound effects operator, but Kitty has a secret that could put her job in jeopardy. All of this unfolds under the watchful eyes of Danny’s parents, owners of the radio station, and a live studio audience, resulting in a chaotic and hilarious “on-air” Christmas.

Maria Dunn

August 27, 2022 @ 4pm
$28+GST for adults & $15+GST for youth/students

Maria Dunn's 2021 album Joyful Banners Blazing won a 2022 Juno Award in the Traditional Roots Album of the Year category! A preserver of the spirit of folk music, Maria Dunn is often compared to Woody Guthrie for her keen social awareness and her melodic, unvarnished songs about the lives of working people.

Thirteen years as a volunteer DJ in community radio (1987-2000) encouraged Maria to listen widely to the master songwriters, singers and instrumentalists of folk and roots music. Discovering their recordings and becoming an avid fan and supporter of live music in her community, she absorbed the important messages of compassion and human struggle that have always been central to the writings of folk artists from Buffy Ste. Marie to Hazel Dickens, from Bill Broonzy  to Dick Gaughan.

By the time she began writing her own music in the mid-90s, Maria was learning to draw deeply on the folk tradition of storytelling through song to honour “ordinary” people, past and present.

Maria Dunn's Joyful Banner Blazing elevates our humanism…its meditative scope full of sacrifice, familiar echoes& joy will remind you we’ll always get to the other side…
Fish Griwkowsky, Edmonton Journal (January 2021)
