The Alaska Highway Road Show
July 4th and 5th, 2017, 7:00 pm
Join us for The Alaska Highway Road Show 7pm July 4th & 5th at 7pm.
The Alaska Highway Road Show, (AHRS) is a touring celebration marking the occasion of the famous route’s 75th anniversary. The show launches in early July, 2017, at the Provincial Archives of Alberta as part of Edmonton’s Historic Festival. It will then head north, visiting 11 other communities and eventually wrap up in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory. Performances range from large city performance halls to small spaces in villages like Teslin and Lower Post.
The AHRS celebrates the Trail of ’42 with three artists whose families have a long history in the north. Bill Dolan, Allison Tubman and Kathy Jessup weave together research, family stories, music, artifacts and photographs to present an entertaining look back on the route’s remarkable 75-year history. Raised as “highway kids,” they lend an authentic voice to this ninety-minute tribute concert. Audiences will gain an appreciation of why the Alaska Highway deserves to be Canada’s newest National Historic Site and why truckers and all those who’ve called it home over the years proudly share a special bond. The Trail of ’42 is a remarkable story, and as the Highway reaches its 75th birthday, this is the time to tell it!
