MacNeil says she loves listening to Christmas music especially choirs singing traditional carols. One of her favourites is Silent Night. “It is one of the songs I listened to as a child, I loved to listen to it with my mother,” recalled MacNeil. The concerts will feature some of her originals, traditional carols and selections from her new album. “It’s not a Christmas album but I would like to introduce it and hopefully people will like it,” said MacNeil. Her new album ‘Saving Grace’ is MacNeil’s 24th and her ¿rst in eight years of all original material. “It was de¿nitely a journey,” said MacNeil. “I worked with very ¿ne musicians and hopefully folks will ¿nd enjoyment with it.” Her tour will take her across Canada starting on Nov. 22 in Newfoundland and ¿nishing on Dec. 17 in Edmonton. She really enjoys touring,
