He's back here on the prairies for a show this weekend.
It will be a bit more of a stripped down show from what you've heard on the radio but what makes this performance a magical one will be the stories.
Myles will share the inspiration for his songs and the crowd will get a chance to sing along.
David Myles is playing at the Bassment in Saskatoon Saturday night.

All About The Tease
The feathers are flying in Saskatoon for one cabaret style event that is sure to please.

It's all part of Rosebud Burlesque Club's latest show.

This is not a night at the strippers though, a burlesque show is a combination of what you take off and what's left to the imagination.

The troupe has been going strong for 6 years and celebrates the Vaudevillian tradition.
You can see all the glitz and glamour at the Broadway Theatre Friday night.

Full Chorus for Christmas
It's a proud weekend for parents of the Saskatoon Children's Choir.
Many moms and dads think their child sings like an angel, but these ones actually do.
The chorus is students between seven and 17. 
The show is called Sing Choirs of Angels and features holiday favourites and the 120 singers are joined by guest musicians.
You get two chances to catch the show, Friday and Saturday night at Third Avenue United Church.

The show is Saturday night and opening for Raleigh is Regina guitarist Danny Goertz.

Prairie Poet Celebrated
It's the story of one of this province's best known poets told through her work and the magic of theatre.
Edna Jaques Live! is a new play by Ken Mitchell.
Mitchell's play explores the hardships Jaques faced in her life, the bad luck and the handicaps that often became the subjects of her written work.
She became known as Canada's premier poet in the 1930's and 40's and published several books of her work.
Edna Jaques Live! has two performances in Regina this weekend. That's Friday and Saturday at the Artesian on 13th.

Tribute Performance
There's nothing better than singing at the top of your lungs and giggling along with a good tribute artist.
