A touch of the Emerald Isle at this week’s Joe Hill Coffee House

Family fun in with an Irish theme

Faith and Begorrah! Sunday, March 17 is St. Patrick’s Day, and there’s some Irish to be done at Joe Hill Coffee House.

Come and let these fine performers set your toes tapping and your hands clapping:

Bert Kniss – There’s bound to be a jig in there!

Rhiannon Isaacs – Fresh young voice, small stringed instrument, good sounds

Troy Isaacs – Young, polished, nice guitar, great singing

Peter Pii – Fine country from the Beaver Valley (a county in Ireland)

Marti Daniel – Songs with subtle and good things happening to them

Dave Scanlan – He says he’s Irish; we’ll find out!

As ever, the blarney will be flowing at the Rossland Legion, 2081 Washington Street.

It’s a family-friendly venue – lots of goodies and happiness, no bar.

Admission is $3 – kept affordable by an all-volunteer crew and the generosity of the Rossland Legion. Proceeds from Joe Hill Coffee House help support the Rossland Council for Arts and Culture; proceeds from sale of goodies help support the Gold Fever Follies.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m.; the show starts at 7 p.m.

A note on upcoming shows: the April and May have been rescheduled to better co-ordinate with the local music scene. The next Coffee Houses will be on April 28, May 26 and June 16.

Joe Hill Coffee House is always looking for new performers – young and old, beginners or polished. All welcome; no auditions. It’s where you can relax and perform for the best audience anywhere. For more information contact Les Carter at les@rosslandrange.org, 250-362-5677.
