The Joe Hill Coffeehouse takes will be in full Christmas mode this Sunday as many of the acts will spread the holiday cheer.

The monthly who, held at the Rossland Miners’ Hall is a chance to see some of the best acts in the Kootenays, with surprises at most shows.

Les Carter, who is organizing the show said it’s gearing up to be a special one.

The show is starting off with the Rossland Glee Club doing some Christmas themed numbers.

“They have a history of choosing things that are out of the ordinary and in good musical taste,” Carter said.

That will be followed up by No Frets, who are always a hit as well.

Next up is the Foggy Goggle boys.

Then Paul Bowles will be reading some poetry relating to contemporary things like 2012 followed by some rhythm playing.

Dawn Graham will be singing.

Carter said he would be accompanying Wendy Garby on guitar, despite being injured recently in a ski accident.

“All of this of course is brought to you by your local community,” Carter said about the night of performances. “It’s the kind of thing that ties people together and I would love to have everybody sing.”

Carter brought up the old days when the organizer would go around to each table and have the table sing a bit.

Carter also said the coffeehouse is a great venue for musicians.

“Musicians who would otherwise be cynical about things like playing at a bar, like playing at the Joe Hill because the audience is appreciative and listens,” he said. “A lot of the audience are musicians. It’s a nice place to play, has great sound. We have new main speakers as well.”

The Joe Hill Coffeehouse is this Sunday at 7 p.m. at the Miners’ Hall.
