Annual Rossland performance series kick off

The Rossland Council for Arts and Culture (RCAC) annual performance series kicks off on October 4

The Rossland Council for Arts and Culture (RCAC) annual performance series kicks off on October 4 with a show by critically acclaimed musical group Tiller’s Folly.

Through the performance series RCAC aims to continuously present a wide variety of high calibre artists with a variety of performing arts styles and this year is no exception. The performance series will feature acts ranging from Celtic music to masked theatre and promises to be a great series enjoyable for performance fans young and old.

“We are very excited for the performances we have lined up this season,” said Renate Fleming, volunteer chair of the Performance Series committee. “We strive to make the arts accessible to the entire community, and are so pleased that we are able to host such high quality performers while keeping the cost affordable for community members.”

The first performance in the series will be an adult only dance at the Rossland Miners’ Hall, with entertainment by Tiller’s Folly — a Celtic group with acoustic roots. The critically acclaimed, internationally travelled trio is at the head of the progressive roots movement. Touted as a “national treasure” by Peter North of the Edmonton Journal, Tiller’s Folly promises to be an exciting, high energy show. “This is the perfect performance to kick off this year’s series,” said Fleming. “We hope to see everyone out with their dancing shoes on!”

The dance will take place on October 4. Doors open at 8:30 p.m. and the music will start at 9 p.m.. Tickets are $22 and can be purchased in advance at Out of the Cellar or at the Charles Bailey Theatre Box Office in Trail.
