Former Stettler resident holding Christmas blues concert

Hank Leonhardt to perform at Stettler Performing Arts Centre

It’s starting to sound a lot like Christmas and a unique blues show is coming to Stettler.

A Tribute to The Blues Songs of Christmas is set at the Stettler Performing Arts Centre. The event features Blues, R&B and Swing Christmas tunes from the 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s and 60s.

“The show is unique in that it is a Christmas Music Show but not all the usual Christmas Carols that you hear in every other Christmas Show,” said artist Hank Leonhardt, a former Stettler resident who attended Stettler schools from Grade 1 to 12.

After leaving Stettler Leonhardt went to art school in Washington.

This is the second year the show has come to Stettler. Last year there were about 200 who attended and organizers are hoping for more this year.

“We are hopeful to do as well or better this time around,” said Leonhardt.

The show, at 8 p.m. on Nov. 30, is put on by Gilbert Benefit Consulting and all proceeds are going to Saving Grace Animal Sanctuary. To get advance tickets go to Wells Furniture in Stettler. Tickets will also be available at the door.
