ABOUT THE SHOW

Following close behind her highly successful show Legendary Ladies of Country, Lisa will continue the theme with some of her favourite country Christmas songs! Just about every famous county artist has recorded a Christmas album and Lisa has gathered up the songs that have meant the most to her over the years. Oh Holy Night, Beautiful Star of Bethlehem, Christmas Times A Comin’ and Shake Me I Rattle – a Christmas recording of Lisa’s that has been a December radio favourite across Canada. These are just a few of the classics you’ll enjoy. There is nothing like the simple joy, peace and warmth that comes from a night of Christmas music and everyone is sure to leave fully filled with the spirit of the season!

ABOUT LISA BROKOP

t’s not often – in fact, some might say very rare – for an artist to have an enduring musical career.  In a day and age when most artists barely flicker for a moment before fading out of the spotlight, Lisa Brokop is set to celebrate 20 remarkable years of singing, songwriting and performing. What’s the secret to her success?  “I love what I do,” says Brokop.  “Every note I sing, whether in the studio or from the stage, is true.  It hasn’t always been an easy road. There have been many curves, bumps and detours.  But really, it is the love of the music that motivates each step I take in the business. It keeps me moving forward.  And I think fans feel and appreciate that love.” 

Lisa’s love affair with performing began in suburban Vancouver, British Columbia. As a baby, it was clear to her parents that she was special – She was singing before she could talk! By the age of 7, she was on stage with her musical mother and brother, performing everything from polkas to Kenny Rogers’ classics. 
By age 12, she was sitting in with other Vancouver bands, and went professional at age 15 when she joined a touring band. A year later she began a solo career and released “Daddy Sing To Me”, the first of a string of successful singles from her independent debut album My Love. At the age of 19, Lisa landed the lead female role in the feature film Harmony Cats. The movie, in which Lisa plays a country singer who leaves home in search of a big break in Nashville, proved to be prophetic. Shortly after filming wrapped, and on the strength of her very first Nashville showcase, Lisa was signed to Capitol Records. Over the next three years, she released two critically acclaimed albums, the Canadian-certified Gold record Every Little Girls Dream and the self-titled Lisa Brokop, which garnered hits such as “Give Me a Ring Sometime,” “Take That,” “Before He Kissed Me,” and “She Can’t Save Him.” In 1995, the prestigious Academy of Country Music recognized Lisa with an award nomination for Top New Female Vocalist.

Now comfortably established in her adopted home of Nashville, Tennessee, she took some time away from the rigors of the road and discovered a hidden wellspring of songwriting talent, which gave her renewed self-respect, strength and determination.  The result was Undeniable, a Canadian independent album that saw Lisa recognized with a series of Canadian Country Music Awards, including two nods for Independent Song of the Year for the hits “Something Undeniable” and “I’d Like to See You Try,” and three consecutive trophy wins for Independent Female Artist of the Year. 


And now hot on the heels of The Patsy Cline Project Lisa is bringing more of her favorites to the stage with ‘Legendary Ladies of Country’. This show will include songs from many of the female legends that have been influencial to Lisa and her career. Songs from some of the greats like Loretta Lynn, Tammy Wynette, Emmylou Harris (and many more!) will be featured in the show along with plenty of stories to go with!
