Single degree temps, sub-zero wind chill, with blowing and drifting snow ...perfect conditions for an outdoor concert?!?
In Minnesota in December, that can be the standard and was the scenario as the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train rolled into the metro over the weekend for a 15th anniversary concert featuring ‘house band’ The Claytones, acapella gospel/r&b group Take 6, and recently-gone-country Sheryl Crow.
The event was held at the CP Rail Yards in suburban Cottage Grove and drew some 15,000 people overall to the festivities, which also included ice carving, a chance to meet Santa at the “North Pole Station”, and viewing of the lit and decorated Holiday Train.
The event also supported a good cause, as food, cash and toiletry donations for St. Paul Park-based Friends in Need Food Shelf, raised approximately $140,000 total. Though this was one of a couple hundred Holiday Train stops, it was one of only three concert events and the only one scheduled for the U.S. (previous concerts happened in Hamilton and Calgary, Canada).
Sheryl Crow then took the stage for a 45 min. performance of greatest hits to a shivering crowd, wisely eschewing the mostly unfamiliar newer country songs from her latest, Feels Like Home (Warner Music Nashville) and instead played a couple of Christmas classics, and more than half of 2003’s The Very Best of (A&M Records).
Sheryl Crow: "How in the world do you live in a place this cold?"
Charles Brown and Chuck Berry covers got the crowd moving to stay warm and in the Christmas spirit, and the encore of ‘Soak Up the Sun’ was maybe only wishful thinking in the sub-zero windy conditions, but appreciated by the remaining crowd.
As much an endurance test as a concert, The Holiday Train tour brought warm feelings and a successful fundraising effort to an evening when most would have otherwise stayed indoors, due to the in climate weather.
