This evening performers at Rossland’s Joe Hill Coffee House will be celebrating the songs of the late, great Pete Seeger. Be prepared to sing.

Our performers today are:

• The Kidz: Five fine voices, singing songs that Pete wrote and made famous.  It’s a double set, to give the audience lots of opportunities to sing along.

• Kootenay Dance Works: “Bright Lights” ~ Elyse Vickers;  “Rock, Paper, Scissors” ~ Emilia Hofmann, Brynn Streadwick, Brooklyn Donovan;  “Ave Maria” ~ Bethany Johnson

• Stevie B – Channeling Pete

• Vic Buehler:  Big voice and a big guitar, like the “Old Man”

• Justus Prevails – Keith Park and Ray Scott, making sweet, rhythmic sounds

• Kootenay Jack – The working man and his country guitar, closing the show like a pro

Joe Hill Coffee House, Rossland’s monthly community venue for talent throughout the Kootenays, happens in the Miners’ Union Hall, 1765 Columbia Ave.

Doors open at 6 p.m.; the show starts at 7 p.m. Admission is a mere $3; kids and students free.

Joe Hill has great atmosphere, great sound, goodies, coffee and tea by Gold Fever Follies supporters.
