ABRAM-VILLAGE - The Expo-Festival Centre will make another attempt at presenting the Christmas production of "An Acadian Down-Home Christmas", featuring many well-known Acadian artists from the Evangeline region next Sunday, Dec. 29, at the Mont-Carmel Parish Centre.

This annual Christmas show was originally scheduled for Dec. 22, but was canceled due to the storm.

The concert will feature Christmas carols, modern and original songs, and traditional stories and memories of what it means to celebrate Christmas down home with family and friends.

Those performing include Patricia Richard, a familiar voice from the world-renowned Acadian production "Ode à l'Acadie," Caroline Bernard, who was a part of the musical production "Come-All-Ye" at the Confederation Centre of the Arts' Mackenzie Theatre in 2012, Louise Arsenault, the 2009 Golden Fiddle recipient awarded by the Atlantic Fiddlers' Jamboree.

The evening concert will also have Marcella Richard's Acadian and country music singing, as well as the music of Remi Arsenault, a multi-instrumentalist who was named Music P.E.I.'s Musician of the Year in 2010. Wayne Robichaud will provide the drumming.

Making a special appearance on the Acadian Down-Home Christmas Show will be Acadian singer-songwriter Jeannita Bernard who has participated in the recording of several albums.

Joining the musicians on stage will be a group of young step-dancers from the Evangeline region.

The performance will take place Dec. 29 at 7 p.m. at the Mont-Carmel Parish Centre.
