Don Amero
 
 

UMFMDon Amero’s love for the holidays continues to grow along with his “Amero Little Christmas” concert as it returns to the West End Cultural Centre for the second time on Saturday December 21st, 2013. Winnipeg roots rocker Jordan St. Cyr and country crooner Desiree Dorian guest star in this year’s celebration.
 
From humble beginnings in 2009, Winnipeg singer/songwriter Don Amero decided to plan a Christmas themed concert based purely on his love for holiday music and the community vibe that the season brings. “We all know there’s something magical about Christmas and my hope is to capture some of that and put it into a show” explains Don Amero. The holiday season is about giving which is a component Amero takes special care to include. The biggest component for Amero Little Christmas is to raise awareness and funds for a local charity or organization that he is connected to.
 
This will be the second time that the WECC has hosted Amero Little Christmas, the first being this past year. “It started out quite humbly in a smaller room but we outgrew that space and the WECC was the perfect room for where we are at. The WECC is a huge support to local music and was very pleased to help me in the planning of a great evening.  It doesn’t hurt that the WECC has an amazing staff, space and sound system” says Amero.
 

 

On a literal level, Amero Little Christmas will be filled with great music, lots of laughs and inspiring stories. You can count on Don to throw a few fun and festive videos together that really put the icing on the cake and are always a big laugh. On another level, the show sets a tone for people to refocus on what the season is really about, which to Amero means “to relax, look at the blessings in your life and show love to others.”
 
2013 has been a highlight year for Amero’s music career as he was nominated for both a Juno as well as a Canadian Folk Music Award and won a WCMA. “Every time a nomination or an award comes in it just helps me to know that I have the best support for what I do.  The thing I love to do most is celebrate those accolades with my family, friends and fans because it is theirs as much as it is mine.”
