Come and celebrate the holidays in the cowboy way.

A Cowboy Christmas will take you on a magical journey to a simpler, quieter time captured through music and poetry on Dec. 18 at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre. Featuring Rob Dinwoodie and his band Open Range from the O’Keefe Ranch stage show, this unique performance will let folks explore the cowboy way of celebrating the holidays, but with a local British Columbia twist.

Journey through the early 1900s from a cowboy’s perspective with song, verse and theatrics in a show rich in history. Join Dinwoodie and the Open Range as they share intriguing cowboy stories with you in a very special Christmas presentation.

“People can expect a thoroughly entertaining evening as they experience Christmas through the eyes of a cowboy in the early days of British Columbia,” Dinwoodie explained.

Dinwoodie will be accompanied by his band Open Range, whose members, Dixon Zalit and Tim Boulter, are well known for their diverse musical instrumentation and harmonies. They will perform familiar Christmas classics, along with songs about the province’s own cowboy history.

“The performance includes drama, music, song and cowboy poetry,” Dinwoodie said. “There will be both traditional as well as original Christmas music that flows with the drama.”

The group originally got their start with the Cowboy Dinner Show that runs out of the O’Keefe Ranch in Vernon. Now they’re bringing this very popular show out of the Okanagan region and sharing the cowboy lifestyle with the rest of the province.
