Jim Cuddy riding rails with CP Holiday Train

Blue Rodeo singer will perform when train stops in Agassiz

Jim Cuddy from Blue Rodeo is riding the CP Holiday Train this year

The CP Holiday Train will be stopping Agassiz on Wednesday, Dec. 17, at 5 p.m.

As always, the train will make its stop across from the Agricultural Hall at the far end of Pioneer Ave.

Once the side doors of main stage boxcar drop down, the entertainment begins. The show this year includes country singer Tracey Brown, and Jim Cuddy from Blue Rodeo.

In 1998, Cuddy released All in Time which went on to sell Gold in his native Canada.  His next album, 2006’s The Light That Guides You Home, was released to critical acclaim and won the Juno for Adult Alternative Album of the Year.  On Sept. 27, 2011 Jim released Skyscraper Soul, his third solo album.

Tracey Brown is a member of a family of exceptional and celebrated musicians. She was part of Canada’s most awarded country group, Family Brown, before forming the Juno award winning Prescott-Brown. The Family Brown toured extensively and had a syndicated TV show for 13 years.

Over her career, Brown has released more than 20 albums and was nominated for a Juno as Best Country Female Vocalist in 1999. She is also a member of the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame. She and husband, Randall Prescott have been actively involved in production of the Holiday Train since 2004, as well as performing on many of the tours.

Anyone attending the CP Holiday Train is reminded to try to arrive early due to the high volume of people in the area. Also to dress warmly, and most importantly, to bring food bank donations to drop off at the Ag Hall. The CP Holiday Train’s intention is to raise money for the food banks in the towns they visit. Part of the event will include a donation to Agassiz Harrison Community Services.
