Joe Hill coffee house: crack one open

Take a break on Easter Sunday and celebrate the return of green grass and sunshine with the Joe Hill Coffee House.

Sunday, April 20, 7 p.m. (Doors open ay 6 p.m.), Miners’ Union Hall

It’s a Joe Hill Easter.

Take a break on Easter Sunday and celebrate the return of green grass and sunshine with the Joe Hill Coffee House, Rossland’s famous community showcase for talent from far and near.

This Sunday’s performers are:

• Michael Gifford, with a set of songs from the country operetta Lonesome Valley, written by Michael’s dad in 1950. A piece of country history.

• Kootenay Dance Works: including Tatum Clement dancing “Little Fella;” Lisa Bruckmeier and Taryn Cutt dancing “Stray Cats;” and Ava JinJoe and Tatum dancing “Imagine.”

• The Mary Janes: Trallee McGovern, Toni Hayward, Maureen Mahoney and Nancy Anderson make their Joe Hill debut in four-part harmony (a two-part set to let the newcomers stretch their wings a bit).

• Les Carter, singing and playing songs that amuse and inspire.

• Kootenay Jack, direct from Nashville by way of Fruitvale and the Rex Hotel. Classic country.

As always, there will be great sounds, a friendly atmosphere and tea, coffee and goodies.  There may even be hidden Easter eggs.

The Joe Hill Coffee House takes place in the Miners’ Union Hall, 1765 Columbia Avenue, in Rossland. Doors open at 6 p.m., the show starts at 7 p.m. Admission is a mere $3, with kids and students free.
