Rossland’s Joe Hill Coffee House rings in the season

Show on Sunday, Dec. 16, features some new voices and some old, helping spread Yuletide cheer.

With the Christmas season upon us, the dark and cold having returned. The Joe Hill Coffee House is inviting Rosslanders to come to a show this weekend to brighten the season.

The Coffee House on Sunday, Dec. 16, features some new voices and some old, helping spread Yuletide cheer. The lineup is:

Rossland Glee Choir – Voices raised in harmony.

Shelley Ackerman – Showcasing her new works.

The KnissKornBowles Jazz Ensemble. Three experienced Beaver Valley musicians reach into new territory – and a Christmas song or two.

Kiana Tingley – returning to Rossland.

Mr. Gabriella – Come and find out!

Roelof Helberg – A Joe Hill debut by way of South Africa (and symphony performances, and bass in a jazz band). Sounds from classical to soul and jazz, with an acoustic slant, like singing around a campfire.

The Coffee House is held, as always, at the Rossland Legion, 2081 Washington Street. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.; the show starts at 7 p.m.

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 the Joe Hill Coffee House help support the Rossland Council for Arts and Culture; proceeds from sale of goodies help support the Gold Fever Follies.
