THE BATTLEFORDS ‑ The Louisiana Hayride Show is bringing the sounds of musical legends to the Dekker Centre for the Performing Arts Nov. 29.

Dekker Centre staff and volunteers invite everyone to get into the Christmas spirit while enjoying a show presented by a talented cast bringing the music of Elvis Presley, Patsy Cline, Roy Orbison, Crystal Gayle, Lefty Frizzell, Shania Twain and more. They’ll be singing their big hits as well as their favourite Christmas songs, such as Blue Christmas, Let It Snow, Pretty Paper, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas and White Christmas.

In addition to enjoying favorite "characters" from the Louisiana Hayride Show and a few of the show’s most popular songs like Dang Me, If You’ve Got the Money, Tiger By the Tail and Pretty Woman, in this special Christmas edition the Louisiana Hayride cast will also sing as themselves.

Andrea Anderson will offer moving versions of Oh Holy Night and How Great Thou Art and Gil’s vocals on Hark the Herald Angels will leave listeners amazed.

There’s lots of fun in the show as well with Vic de Sousa bringing you his portrayal of Elvis and Derek Pulliam as Lefty Frizzell is always a crowd pleaser.

Woven throughout the songs will be tidbits of information, presented by host and creator of the show, Lori Risling.
