Come join Lennie Gallant and his amazing band for some overdue Christmas Cheer!

Lennie’s is excited to bring his Innkeeper’s Christmas Concert back to the HAT this 2023 Christmas Season. This holiday favourite is full of original seasonal songs, stories and exciting accompanying visuals on screen! Lennie released his first long awaited Christmas album in 2021 to much praise and critical acclaim. Canadian music reviewer/author Bob Mersereau said, “I always make a point of listening to many new Christmas albums each year, and this is one of the best I've heard in years, and certainly one of the premiere sets of new tunes in a long time...I hope he's learning every one of these songs for the show!” He definitely has! The title song Christmas Day on Planet Earth, performed with Black Umfolosi, and its accompanying video (available on YouTube) is even fast becoming a holiday standard.

Lennie has performed his Innkeeper’s Christmas show in Atlantic Canada for several years now to sold out crowds and this year’s multimedia version promises to be the best one yet. The show features his band; partner and Acadian star Patricia Richard, his amazing long term band mate and violinist Sean Kemp, and piano marvel Julien Robichaud. Lennie and this band have been knocking the socks off audiences for the past year, so get ready to hang them on the mantle and then fill 'em up with some musical treats that will make you fall in love with Christmas all over again!

Join us for an evening full of Lennie’s original songs, some traditional favourites, a load of laughs, great tales and occasional surprises. It will definitely put you in a Yuletide state of mind! You don’t want to miss this special evening with one of Canada’s best songwriters.

Sunday, December 17 at 7:30pm Tickets are $37.00 + HST and fees All sales are final.

City News:

“The Innkeeper's Christmas is a fresh, interesting take during a season filled with tradition.”

“People have gotten so used to Christmas shows and hearing the same things over and over. No matter how many times you arrange Christmas classics, they're still the same songs. Gallant has written a collection of unique original yuletide songs, and the reaction has been over the moon.”

Thank you so much and see you soon at the HAT!
