Meaghan Smith

Juno Award winning singer/songwriter Meaghan Smith performs music from her holiday album It Snowed at the West End Cultural Centre. She’s thrilled that her WECC holiday show is becoming a tradition for both her and her Winnipeg fans.

“I really love this time of year.  I love the cold and the snow.  I know that’s strange but I do.  I love inviting people in from the freezing outdoors and warming them up with my songs.  I love that there are traditions reserved especially for this time of year and it’s an honor to share some of my favorite musical traditions with my audience.  I also really love that my holiday show might be becoming a holiday tradition for some people.  That’s pretty special” says Meaghan Smith, regarding her upcoming holiday concert at the West End Cultural Centre.
Meghan will be performing with her trusty HusBand (pun intended) Jason, while performing a wide variety of holiday songs, some classic Meghan songs and some brand new ones from her upcoming album.  “For some reason, we always, without fail, play our first show of every tour at the WECC.  It’s kind of a perfect sized venue for me at this stage in my career and has a good vibe. I love playing there first. We always have a good time and it often sets the mood for the following shows. The crowd is always super sweet. It’s becoming its own tradition in terms of touring for us.”

Meaghan’s Holiday show started up on the release of her holiday album It Snowed. It has since carried on as it became a way for Meaghan to get out and tour her favourite cities around the holidays. Meaghan’s Holiday show isn’t just about music - she will be pulling into Winnipeg with a cartful of handmade jewelry and a brand new batch of Miniature Paintings, so show up ready to get into the holiday season.  


“There’s something about long dark winter nights contrasted with brilliantly sparkling snowy days, or freezing winter air and the comforting heat of an inviting fire. People are thinking of each other, buying gifts for one another or just getting together. It’s the traditions, the food, the friends, the family, the lights and the music that I love.  I want to be a part of the joy in people’s holidays.”

Slow LeavesSlow Leaves is a solo project of Winnipeg songwriter Grant Davidson whose music is rooted deep in folk and Americana. Slow Leaves has been increasingly capturing audience’s attention in the Winnipeg live music circuit over the last few months, his new EP sees Rusty Matyas (of Imaginary Cities) behind the production helm.
