The Canadian Irish Tenor, John McDermott is bringing his spring solo tour, Traditionally Yours, to the Vernon Performing Arts Centre April 21.

McDermott is an international recording star and household name. Besides his stellar musical career – platinum, double-platinum, and triple-platinum albums, and multiple Juno nominations – he is also known for his commitment to veterans’ causes.

His work with veterans in the U.S. has won him the Congressional Medal of Honour Society’s Bob Hope Award and the Ted Williams Globe & Anchor Award from the United States Marine Corp.

In his native home of Canada, McDermott has received a commendation from the Minister of Veteran’s Affairs for his ongoing work.

McDermott continues to head his foundation, McDermott House Canada, dedicated to improving care in the final stages of terminal illness and providing a warm, welcoming place to stay for Canada’s veterans, military, first responders and their families.

In concert, whether sharing the stage with a top-notch group of musical friends or touring the world as part of the famed Three Irish Tenors, McDermott continues to enchant audiences with his beautiful voice and sensitive renditions.

Though time and travel have introduced him to a wealth of new material and experiences, he manages to incorporate that diversity into his performances, while retaining the beguiling sense of  humour that endeared him to audiences from the beginning.

This tour features songs from McDermott’s  latest release, Traditionally Yours, as well as a variety of favourites from his vast recording catalogue.

Tickets for the Vernon concert are $51 (all seats) and are now on sale at the Ticket Seller box office  at the Performing Arts Centre. Call 250-549-7469 or order online at www.ticketseller.ca.
