Following the huge success and popularity of the show over the past 15 years, the Christmas treat will be returning to Music Hall on Saturday December  18.

Phil said: “We can’t wait to hit the road again and bring the Christmas Songbook to Aberdeen once more. Things were a little different last year with our first ever Virtual Christmas Songbook and I’m delighted that we’ll be back in full swing in front of live audiences again this year.”

The successful Scottish composer and a selection of the nation’s finest folk musicians will hit the road for seven shows, dishing out heart-warming entertainment all over Scotland. This year will see the show return live and in full force, following 2020’s Virtual Christmas Songbook.
