So what can fans in Brockville expect from Sunday’s performance? A little of everything, he says.

“The show features a lot of Lucy’s big, big ballads that a lot of people have come to expect each year,” as well as plenty of energetic audience and family favorites, he said. “There’s a lot of really upbeat traditional Cape Breton sounds…and there’s always a good dose of story and some dance.”

With the days growing shorter and darker through the month, Stewart says he hopes the show “brings a bit of light to the season.”
