Max Hawk performs at the May Coffee House.

Joe Hill Coffee House

We open our new season this coming Sunday, September 21 with a fine collection of talent.

Like the Mary Ellen Carter in Stan Rogers’ great song, Joe Hill Coffee House rises again!  This is our seventh year in a row.

We open our new season this coming Sunday, September 21 with a fine collection of talent.  Performers will include Michael Gifford, our founder, following Joe Hill’s footsteps, singing songs about the teachers’ strike (classic tunes, Michael’s lyrics); Les Carter, singing a collection of songs with the sea in them; Paul Bowles, presenting his fascinating blend of percussion and poetry; Ron Halliday, a pro from a place east of here, who has recently retired to Rossland to join the music; Stevo, Rossland’s own, with more fine songs; Bethany Worsnop, direct from Fruitvale, a rising young star on the harmonica and Marti Daniel, singing songs topical, lyrical and rhythmical.

As always, the venue is family-friendly, the sound and surroundings are superb and there will be goodies and refreshments (tea, coffee, soft drinks) with the proceeds going to support Rossland’s Gold Fever Follies.

The Miners’ Hall is located at 1765 Columbia Avenue in Rossland (just west of the business blocks on the main street).

Doors open at 6 p.m., and the show starts at 7 p.m.

Admission is a mere $3, kids and students free.

Joe Hill Coffee House is always looking for more people who would like to come out and perform, whether young or old, beginner or experienced.   There’s no audition; just sign up and get your guaranteed 15 minutes of fame in front of a great audience.  For more information, contact Les Carter, at (250) 362-5677 or
