The show will be part of the band’s Christmas tour of Europe, including concerts in Holland, Germany and the UK.

Ernie Haase and Signature Sound have already performed at Clickimin a few years ago to a sell-out audience.

Concert promoter Matthew Laurenson said getting a Shetland date on a tour which packed out auditoriums all across North America was really exciting news.

He said: “This concert will be a great start to the festive season. EH&SS are one of the most talented acts in Nashville at the moment.

“We had always wanted to get a Christmas concert with one of the big US country gospel groups, but until now that seemed unlikely.

“The show will incorporate some of EH&SS original compositions, along with well-known Christmas favourites. They are a group who are sure to make the Shetland crowd laugh, as well as listen in awe at the vocal extravaganza on display.

“They do not need to be oversold – their award winning combination of vocal perfection, energy, humour and warmth have led them to global success.

“What better way to start off the festive season than to come along to a heart-warming Christmas concert with such talented Grammy Award nominated performers?”

Tickets for Clickimin concert, on Tuesday 8th December, will be on sale from Friday 11th September, available through the usual outlets.
