Heartland Holiday features internationally renowned vocalist/instrumentalist and A Prairie Home Companion regular Peter Ostroushko. For the third year in a row, Ostroushko and his musical colleagues and friends are celebrating the holidays with a live recorded concert that reflects his Ukrainian heritage and roots. Peter and his Heartland Ensemble warm your soul while giving you a chance to escape the holiday hustle and bustle. The music is richly international in its range and traditional in its feel. Hosted by Julie Amacher.
Among the many musicians joining Peter Ostroushko are two more A Prairie Home Companion regulars: pianist Dan Chouinard, and singer Ruth MacKenzie. The Dreaded Nowytski sisters (Natlalie and Olenka) team up with MacKenzie, to create great harmonies on several holiday carols.
