ALASKA HIGHWAY ROADSHOW

Alaska Highway Roadshow

The Alaska Highway Road Show is a touring celebration marking the occasion of the famous route’s 75th anniversary. The show is heading north visiting numerous communities along the route including Watson Lake, Teslin, and Whitehorse in the Yukon.

The Road Show 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 90-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!

Tickets are $10 and are available at MacBride Museum or by calling (867) 667-2709.
