Southside Shuffle back in town for a Mississauga Christmas concert


Published November 5, 2021 at 9:01 am

Cheryl Lescom, former backup singer for Ronnie Hawkins and Long John Baldry, is a featured guest at the Southside Shuffle's upcoming Christmas concert at Port Credit Legion.

The Southside Shuffle is shuffling in to the Port Credit Legion for a Mississauga Christmas concert on Saturday, Dec. 11. 

Featuring an all-star lineup that includes Juno Award-nominated Shakura S’Aida, who won the Maple Blues Female Vocalist of the Year Award in 2010 as Canada’s top blues singer, the Tim Hortons Southside Shuffle hosts Christmas Time is Here. 

More widely known for its annual summertime blues and jazz festival in Port Credit, the Southside Shuffle has put together a holiday season lineup—including an appearance by Santa Claus himself—that’s sure to please.  

Presented by celebrated Canadian music producer, composer and writer Lance Anderson, a Juno Award winner in the ‘90s, the concert also features Cheryl Lescom, a Southside Shuffle favourite and former backup singer for Ronnie Hawkins and Long John Baldry, and Port Credit’s own Chuck Jackson, winner of Juno and Maple Blues awards and longtime member of the legendary Downchild Blues Band. 

Musicians Russ Boswell and William Sperandei are also featured guests. 

Only 150 tickets to the Christmas Time is Here concert are available, at $50 apiece or $400 for a table of eight. Those attending will be asked to show proof of full vaccination against COVID-19. 

Tickets are available online and at Impressionable Gifts in Port Credit.  

Doors open at 7:30 p.m. and show time is 8:30 p.m. 

There will be a food truck on site. 

Held virtually last year due to the pandemic, the Southside Shuffle blues and jazz festival returned for live performances at Port Credit’s Memorial Park back in September. 

It marked the 23rd year for the festival, which has become a mainstay on the Canadian concert scene.
