The Grand Ole Opry - Yukon style

The Grand Ole Opry is one of the most storied musical traditions in North America, the dream of thousands of musicians.

Local performers will attempt to recreate that atmosphere on the stage of the Yukon Arts Centre for two nights with an event they're calling The Grand Ole Northern Opry.

They'll have some help in the form of Grammy Award winner Laurie Lewis and her partner, Tom Rozum. Both have appeared on the Opry stage many times, as well as on Garrison Keillor's Prairie Home Companion show.
