A Lunch At Allen's Christmas
Featuring Murray McLauchlan, Cindy Church, Marc Jordan and Ian Thomas
Canadian folk pop from Ontario
Event DescriptionA Lunch At Allen’s Christmas is an enchanting seasonal journey filled with stories, humour and a vast array of superbly-crafted songs – some traditional I’ll Be Home for Christmas, others thought-provoking, Marc’s Sober Up For Christmas, many familiar, like Murray’s Old Tin Star and Ian’s Zuzu’s Petals – creating a bluesy, jazz, pop synergy that warms the heart and soothes the soul. The true essence of Christmas!
Lunch At Allen’s is a musical powerhouse comprising four internationally renowned Canadian talents: Murray McLauchlan, Cindy Church, Marc Jordan and Ian Thomas. While songs like Murray’s Farmer’s Song, Marc’s Marina Del Rey and Ian’s Painted Ladies form our collective life soundtrack, as individuals, these artists have also penned hits for Bon Jovi, Josh Groban, Chicago, Bonnie Raitt, America, Santana, Cher, Diana Ross and Rod Stewart. The icing on the Lunch At Allen’s cake, however, is the expressive, poetic voice of Cindy Church (Quartette, Great Western Orchestra) … together their familiarity and camaraderie, their exquisite harmonies and sheer volume of combined musical talent adds up to a delectable evening’s entertainment.
