2019 ADULT CONTEMPORARY ALBUM OF THE YEAR | Whitehorse | | The JUNO Awards
JUNO WEEK 2020
Sunday, March 15, 2020
Saskatoon, Saskatchewan

Since their debut, Whitehorse has evolved from magnetic folk duo to full-blown rock band. In truth, Whitehorse is never fully either one or the other, but an ever-evolving creative partnership that challenges both artists to explore new instrumental and lyrical terrain with each project. Now, the JUNO Award winners celebrate the festive season in timeless fashion with A Whitehorse Winter Classic, an album that explores the ups and downs of the holidays, from joy and beauty to loneliness and melancholy. From the shimmer and twinkle of “December’s Children” to the airport-weary holiday travelogue of “Ho Ho Ho,” A Whitehorse Winter Classic reflects on the family ties that knit us close even over great distances and gently wakes the ghosts of Christmases (and relationships) past. Melissa McClelland’s celestial vocals soar on aching, gorgeous ballads “Snowballs,” “Snow Angels” and “Two Snowbirds.” Doucet’s affectionate resignation steers “Merry Christmas Baby” and fitting closing track “Cheers To Another New Year.” 2018 has seen Whitehorse flex their musical muscles with high-profile performances for and alongside a long list of luminaries, from Neil Young to Sarah Harmer, July Talk and Sam Roberts at Massey Hall’s anniversary, the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame gala and more.
