Rossland’s Joe Hill Coffee House goes all out as season winds down

Five acts up for weekend

On Sunday, Joe Hill Coffee House goes all out once again with these five fine acts:

• Astrojet – Rupert Keiller’s new band, in their first public performance. (They just won Best Rock Song at the Kootenay Music Awards.) Their roots run deep, their sound is big. Watch out!

• Rossland Ukulele Choir – Singing, strumming, a crowd of happy musicians. Fun!

• Hannah Dueck – Acoustic bluegrass and folk, with meaning and a great voice.

• Michael Gifford – Sweet songs from back when. (Love always wins).

• Ucra Mountain String Band – Ian Johnston and friends from the Foggy Goggle Boys. Rhythm, harmony, slick mandolin, lots of energy.

As ever, the Coffee House is in 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.

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.
