Local talents showing their best sides

The Miner’s Hall was packed when the opening act, the amazing Golden City Fiddlers, took the stage fro local talent show

Rossland was treated to “An Evening of Entertainment Extravaganza” at the Miners’ Hall on Friday, September 5. It was a night of uproarious laughter and incredible musical talent.

Organizer Lisa Henderson explained the night had been planned similar to the hall’s regular Joe Hill Coffee House shows, but with even more talent and treats.

The Miner’s Hall was packed when the opening act, the amazing Golden City Fiddlers, took the stage. They were followed by Dawn Graham of Rossland, who sang tributes to Barbra Streisand with her beautiful voice. She sings opera and jazz and is in her second year of the music program at Selkirk College. Her talent showed as she exited the stage to the sound of non-stop applause.

Trail provided the next set of talent; the KIDZ sang a cappella except for their last song, which was accompanied by guitar. Their group got together because of their shared love for music, and started out singing in their living rooms on weekend nights.

Bert Kniss was next, having come all the way from Fruitvale. Kniss knew just how to blow warm air into his harmonica and had the audience swinging in their seats.

Norm Worsfold of Rossland next played some jazz standards; he shared he could have stayed on stage the whole night. However, Rossland’s The Foggy Goggle Boys wanted to hit the stage too.

After some slower acts, The Foggy Goggle Boys did a good job of firing up the audience before the stand-up comedians’ took their turn.

Lisa McCauley opened the comedy portion of the night. A Trail native, both she and Tara Holmes are a part of the famous “Hell on Heels” trio. Using her knowledge of the area she cheekily flirted with the 70s, and the Rosslanders. Everyone in the audience laughed.

Tara Holmes is a beloved local comedian and it showed during her performance. She explained that she became a tourist in Rossland after her move to Kamloops; she can no longer get into our garbage cans. Making fun of bears, her mother and Rossland’s coffee shop culture before she left the Miners’ Hall full of giggles about our little town and its quirkiness.

Audience members were certainly happy they left their homes that night to visit the Miners’ Hall.
