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.
