West End Cultural Centre: Heather Rankin, December 13
Heather Rankin, most well known as the youngest member of the 6X Juno Award winning and multi-platinum selling band, The Rankin Family, is bringing her solo Christmas show, Picture Perfect Christmas, to the West End Cultural Centre on December 13th.
Picture Perfect Christmas includes a mixture of traditional and original songs from Rankin's 2017 seasonal album Imagine, as well as favourites she performed with her sisters, Raylene and Cookie, on their Christmas record over twenty years ago. She mixes in songs from her 2016 Juno nominated album, A Fine Line, some Rankin Family classics, and some special surprises, along with stories that are equal parts funny and endearing. Picture Perfect Christmas is sure to leave you full of the spirit of the season, wrapped up in warm, cozy memories, with some rollicking East Coast charm and a thoughtful wish for Christmas future.
"Picture Perfect" is the second single released from Imagine. Written with Jamie Robinson, Rankin describes "Picture Perfect" as being inspired by "a visit to the country, to the vacant home of my mother's people. A grand farm, once thriving, now sits silent and empty. All the love and joy that once held the heart is no longer, and all that is left are memories of what now seems but a dream."
Heather Rankin followed her 2016 Juno Award Nominated solo album, A Fine Line, with a Christmas album, Imagine. Her angelic voice wraps her listeners in coziness and nostalgia in this ten-song collection, which includes both original songs, co-written by Rankin, and traditional songs she grew up singing at Christmas. The evocative imagery in Rankin's contemplative lyrics inhabit the same deeply personal world Rankin created in A Fine Line, while songs like "Wrap it Up" harken back with frivolity to the music she created with her siblings as The Rankin Family. Imagine captures the full depth of emotions evoked at Christmas, a time for introspection, serenity, wonder, jubilation, coziness and wishes for the coming year.
