The lineup for the 11th annual Andy Kim Christmas concert to support CAMH (The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health ) has been revealed.
On Dec. 9 at Toronto's Phoenix Concert Theatre, Tom Cochrane, Barenaked Ladies, Cowboy Junkies' Michael and Margo Timmins, The Trews, Ron Sexsmith, Broken Social Scene's Kevin Drew and Brendan Canning, Beaches, Honeymoon Suite, Kardinal Offishall, Finger Eleven, Tom Wilson, Tomi Swick as well as various guest hosts will join Kim for what has become of the holiday season's marquee musical social events.
"I'm thrilled to announce both the return of many of my musical friends, as well as a number of artists joining me for the first time," said Kim in a press release. "As is the case every year, I can always count on the generosity of spirit of wonderful performers who join me in supporting a very important cause. For the third year in a row, this year’s concert will be benefiting CAMH and its Gifts of Light Program."
CAMH is Canada's largest mental health and addiction teaching hospital, as well as one of the world's leading research centres in the area of addiction and mental health. CAMH's Gifts of Light program involves getting personalized gifts for patients who might otherwise not have a chance to experience the spirit of giving during the holiday season.
General admission tickets for the event will cost $25. There will also be a number of $125 VIP packages available that include meet-and-greet sessions and the opportunity to get your photo taken with the likes of Cowboy Junkies, Kardinal Offishall or Ron Sexsmith as well as "Santa."
In addition to his customary Toronto event, last year Kim also put on a Christmas concert in Montreal at the urging of Sam Roberts.Air Jordan
