Welcome to another Christmas Made in Manitoba! We're excited you could join us tonight for the debut of Dauphin’s Nicole Yunker, who is joining us for the first time. Our focus is her album “Christmas by the Fire”, which features five newly arranged, traditional Christmas tracks underneath Nicole’s classically trained singing.

How that classical training happened is quite the story, and includes a dream come true by studying with an idol of hers from the other side of the world in Australia. But in yet another example of how the world has shrunk through video chat, Nicole was able to embark on that opportunity of a lifetime which ultimately led to the release of her first two albums in 2021, one of them being "Christmas by the Fire".

It's Nicole Yunker on Christmas Made in Manitoba, and you can enjoy our conversation, and her cozy sounding music, below.
