Beth Marie Anderson is bringing her Christmas Tour to Comox.

Accompanied by Darcy Philips (Jann Arden’s piano player), this acoustic concert will tickle your ears and warm your heart with Christmas classics, original holiday songs, and the stories behind her songwriting. Anderson has the ability to transport you into a magical world with her sultry but powerful voice and charismatic stage presence.

“I love when my audience feels like they are in my living room by connecting with them on an intimate level and leaving their hearts full of the Christmas spirit,” said Anderson. “I am a very relatable artist and my audience enjoys laughing, singing along and hearing the stories behind my original songs.”

In conjunction with her tour, Anderson has released a unique version of the Christmas classic The First Noel to North American radio and has already received rave reviews and adds to radio. The single is set to release world wide on Nov. 26 exclusively through iTunes.
